I'm thinking that next winter I might try to work up a mold and make several of these grommet louver inserts. If I can work it in with the other projects.

If you need the rubber boot for the clutch throwout lever, get one for a 1961 MGA from Victoria British in Kansas or maybe Moss Motors. Perfect fit.

 

Many parts will interchange with British stuff in the early-late 60's. I believe that Nissan built some vehicles under license (or some other business arrangement) with Austin-Morris. Compare photos of the 50's and early 60's Datun & Austin-Morris sedans and pickups for perspective. Looks to me like they were pretty much divorced by the mid 60's.

Those wheels are from Coker wheel and they sell those flush mount moon caps for their wheels specifically. I wanted the same look but I went with the cheaper version chevy truck 6 bolt wheel, although they were a little hard to find. Same effect though.
I've also got a rust free '68 520.

A little update, got the truck running its throwin some smoke but ill see if it goes away, but the radiator overflow hose was throwin a lot of water so i gotta change the thermostat and if its not that then get a radiator. I also gotta rebuild my carb, so once i get to those things done ill see if everything runs fine with no problems.
, and if it does ill start on the brakes

I did the L20B in my 66 520 and later after all the mods to fit the L20B and the automatic transmission I swapped the chassis to a 1980 720 chassis.  But the mods for both swaps are in my 520 build thread.
