So about a month ago it was decided, by the one that decides these things, that we should take our grandkid to Canby this year. To do that it was understood that a back seat would be required.

So I sent a text out to Jeff and Frank asking if they knew any wagons for sale. They both said no and I continued looking at the same ads on CL. 

 

Then Jeff sends me a text the next day, he knows a guy that knows a guy that has a wagon for sale. This pic is what I get.

Says the guy wants $700 and gives me his number. I send a text and wait. 

 

 

Then a couple days later he texts me about a certain EFI wagon that might be for sale. I go to take a look and it is a nice car, I've seen it before and it is a good deal, but more than $700. I tell the owner about the other wagon and let him know I would be hopefully get to look at it. 

 

Then I went camping. 

 

When I got back I called the number for the first wagon and left a message. The owner texted me back and arrangements were made for me to check out the car.

Fired right up.  Loud as hell but it ran great. I took it for a spin down the street and asked if I could come pick it up on June 4th. :D

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

So that Sat morning my son and I drove down to pick up the car. We were going to bring the Xterra, but it was needed for other duties. Figured the G had a tow hook, we could at least get the thing off the road and wait on AAA if there was any issues.

IMG_2664.jpg

 

 

It fired right up just like the last time. Threw a quart of ATF F into it and I took it straight to the nearest Licensing place a block away and had it registered within 20 minutes. 

 

Then it drove all the way home to Marysville from Georgetown :devil:

And some long term solutions at some point.

Ok maybe a bit more than a gasket :lol:

Then we loaded up and headed to Canby. 

 

IMG_2999.jpg

 

 

Made it there with only a tiny leak from the radiator that stopped once the level was stabilized. I shouldn't have topped it off. :lol: 

 

Pic is from later in the day after wandering around to random conversations...a lot like here, and forgetting to take pics of all the Datsuns. 

 

IMG_3007.jpg

 

Got in early Sunday 

 

IMG_3027.jpg

 

 

Stopped off for some sales tax free Nordstrom Rack for my Lady and Froyo for the kiddo. 

 

IMG_3062.jpg

 

 

Rest stop shot. 

 

IMG_3067.jpg

 

 

 

and we made it home no problem. Only took a quart of ATF F, although could probably add another now. :lol:

For the exhaust gasket between the cast iron collector and the tail pipe, I have used two 510 exhaust gaskets, an XACTO knife and mufler sealant to fabricate a pseudo RL411 gasket.  It works!  The pieces you cut away to fit the exhaust pipe holes just happen to juryrig the hole left when you align the cut 510 gaskets with the RL411 tailpipe.

By the way, when you get back, I can give you currently available Gates or Goodyear radiator hoses part numbers that look like the originals [one even has braid overlays like the originals] and with one cut you have both upper and lower radiator hoses. One even has a spring steel insert to prevenr hose collapse.

Not sure if it's keeping this drive train, but I will take that part number as I do plan to drive it until it can get into the garage que. :)

I was wondering if this was the same one we saw at the place we picked up our 520 a whole back now. It is indeed. Looks like a nice little score. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Weird how many 410/411 cars were there this year,, seems like there were 5-7 wagons,,  usually there is 1 or 2 ,,, maybe.

 

You think your other datsuns attract the nuts,,,,,,,,,,,,, you are going to find 411s bring out the true weirdos.

Those wheels didn't fit, did they?  The studs are a different thread/pitch.  ASE iirc...  Let me knwo what you do if you make them the standard 12x1.25.  Freaky510 said he wanted to swap the studs out to something else, but was afraid that the difference in the standard size to the new metric size would make it so the 4x114.3 pattern would slightly be off and the wheel wouldn't fit on right.

I was admiring the pics of that when you posted in the Canby thread. Cool car.

Them DMike came over for dinner last night on his way North. He told me that was yours. Even cooler.

Get after it. Very cool wagon.

Do those wheels take a really odd shaped lugnut or something? ,, the lugbolts are the same as a 71 chevelle ( 7/16 x 20 ) so not sure how they wouldn't be super easy to get at any strip mall parts store or strong enough .. Seen many 70s full sizes rolling for years with a missing bolt.

Wow! You weren't kidding when you said the exh mani was crap!!!

 

If you know someone with a lathe, you can easily cut down the shank length on some SAE lug nuts to work with the Z rims.  I've done it before....hhhmmm.....makes me wonder if I still have them.
