Suggestions for restoration and modification shall be highly appreciated.kindly also suggest engine that may suit it. City: Rawalpindi.
you can rebuild the engine with new parts still available. It has same 1200 cc engine as Nissan Sunny 1970 - 1974 Pakistan Taxi model we still see on roads. it has great fuel economy and power.Body parts will be hard to find but you can try & check from peshawer shoba bazar shops dealing in nissan brand.
What would you suggest either to overhaul the existing engine or install a new model EFI engine?
Better stay stock engine bay of this car is pretty compact to take any swap
stick with the original engine, overhaul it. redo wiring and interiorRebuild the car like the attached pics......and enjoy.
do not opt for any efi alterations as u will get stuck in many issues......

chah sultan ( aka sultan ka kho ) is famous scarp & old parts market you need to carry sample of lights or picture of actual lights installed in the car. picture from internet will confuse the yard guys.
Paint should be done after mechanical work and engine installation.
Brother if u are having an issue with fuel economy and consumption issues then go for 660cc engine its a light weight car 670 kg and use it as a daily driven its upto u are u going for auto or manual tranny
it all depends on he knowledge of the car owner about the cars and the mechanicals and also how much he takes interest in it.
if a guy doesnt have the above then he should stick to the originality as close as possible otherwise the car will end up in the hands of scrap dealer.
