The the tires are a 205 50 I have them currently on my 86 s12 coupe and they almost fit in the rear but stick out pretty good in the front But going to pick up the car on Saturday in Aberdeen sd hang out at the shop for a few days and drive it 220 ish miles home to Fargo ND on Monday morning so I'm kinda taking a leap of faith that it will make it home but as soon as I pull in the garage the wheels are coming off and the other ones are going on as well as a good tune up and oil change

We have one also.  It's a 1979 810 2 Door Coupe.  It's in excellent condition.  We had a mishap with the bumper today and are in need to repair (hopefully, not replace).

By the way, we own the 1979 Datsun 810 2 door coupe in Houston, Texas.  It is in excellent condition.

There is a shit ton of hail damage but I think it adds character o and the window seal that goes in between the two side windows does any one know how I can get a new one or just the rubber seal to replace it, there is no seal left on the driver side and the passenger side is so brittle that it's about to break so kinda need to get this fixed any help finding suitable parts to repair the old girl would be wonderful and yes drove all the way to sd just to spend a hour there and then driving back home driving time was about 7hours

she drove great doesn't like the wind to much


Yes, from the factory they have poor alignment specs. Add 2° castor and modern camber (0 to -1 degrees) and she'll track very well.

Window seals are gonna pretty tough to find I suggest look on yahoo Japan auction see if they might have something. 810 Coupe are the hardest to find parts for they almost make nothing for expect engine replacement parts, and bushings.
Do it in a Datsun

Dam I was looking at the seal last night and it looks like I might be able to take that bracket apart and remove the old rubber I did find out that the style of rubber seal is still in production just have to figure out how to put it in that carrier an re attach to the window

I have the same problem with door seals and window felts. Does the 810 share any felts or seals with any other Datsun model? Engine and bushings easy, anything else..No.
