Another addition to the stable...

ok i finally found one in decent condition. I've always wanted one and i'm extremely happy with this purchase.....

67.5 Datsun 1600 Roadster

brought in a humongous trailer...it does not run, carbs need to be replaced.

After trying to maneuver her on the ice we finally puled her up and into her new home





Until next time...


Plans are to get it running, do some body work and drive it in the spring/summer.

Looks pretty clean for a 67.5. Any major rust at all?

from what i can see and what the pics that the guy sent me there's no major rust.... Some on the fender that will need attention soon and some surface rust on the floor pans.

I'll be buying a lot of por15 soon lol

Cleaning up bay and test fitting half rad, (i know it MIGHT not be enough to cool it but we shall see) had to notch the frame but everything will get some support welded on.





Another test fit with modified gte manifold and yes that's a turbo...

Haven't decided on what rear will go in and what suspension i will use. I will be fabbing up some motor and tranny mounts next. Once that's done i will be removing everything and pulling the body from the frame. The project is on hold as i've been tinkering with the supra.




I realize the car will handle ****ty after this and will def. be heavier but i dont care, i want it to be able to cruise with it.
