Does anyone have any pictures of the optional decklid rack that was offered for the B210 sedans?  I have a 1975 accesories catalogue which mentions a "Genuine wood and chrome rear deck luggage rack," but doesn't show it....actually, let alone pictures, does anyone have one of these racks themselves that they'd be willing to part with?

I've seen them but never took any or have any pictures of them.. They almost or could be the same ones that the 1600-2000 roadster have on there deck lids.

I think I might have pictures of this somewhere; I'll go looking.

 

Edit: Well I've seen them several times and evidently never took a picture of one?

 

Looking through my saved pictures from other people now.

Edit: Found the car I was thinking about! Pictures stolen off of Datsun1200.com site. I do believe I have seen another version of this before on a white car.

I don't think its the same as the ones one the roadsters.  Those don't have any wooden parts, just tubular metal, at least the ones I've seem pictures of.

It wouldn't look right. It's for grand touring in a sports car with a convertible top. For overnight luggage. And it ruins the rear view. and it would never get used.

Diasagree: it would look great, and the B210 decklid slants so much--almost a fastback--that you probably wouldn't even see the rack from inside, unless it was piled high with stuff.  Would it get used?  I think I'd use it, but that's not really the point.  The point is it would look damn good!

Thanks!  I don't think this is the same one the catalogue was talking about though:  no wood slats.  Looks like a home-build.

Here is the non-us dealer rack. Wood part might be the slats. Design is similar but not the same to the other.

Then you should definitely go for it.

I think it looks fine. I would rather have a roof rack.. but nothing wrong with that one though.

I had one from an accord on a 4 dr. No slats.
Worked great.
5 people, gear and boards to baja several times.

"I can spend time working on the Dattos, or wasting money at the strip club. You make the call." :D


I'll put on chain mail and a dirt bike tire jock strap and drive it!!!!!

In talking to the guy who has one; he really liked it for long trips. I personally want to put one on because you run out of room really fast when packing.

I'd look great in a codpiece too, but I doubt it would get much use.

Dear Sir, everything within my codpiece gets much use.
