Here is an upper frame rail from a different 510 wagon I cut up years ago.

Are you saying that additional sheet metal that makes the whole rail wider is not on the sedans?

Yes, maybe!  I wonder if that outer "layered" piece of formed metal is added to the Goon.....??  So this last pic of the yellow one is Goon & of course the one you just cut up is a Goon?  I might be cutting up my Sedan this weekend, so will look at that!

Yes, both wagons.

 

Best view I have of a 2dr upper frame rail until I get the fenders off the blue car:

I don't see the additional piece on the upper frame rail.  (right side of photo)

Yup, I do NOT see that additional "loop" either!!  I sold an upper rail a few years ago, the guy called me after getting it, said it was different........that was the last time I cut up a shell!  Good to know this!

I posted a for sale add on Ratsun and craigslist and the response was overwhelming.  24 people in the first 24 hours wanting parts.  ~40 total so far.  Crazy!  The community is hungry.  I have sold parts casually for years but have never seen a response like this...  Anyway, a lot of people were asking about sedan parts.

One guy really needed front and back passenger side corners.  Well...  Kind of bonked I'm afraid.

spent the whole weekend trying to match up parts to people and have quite a few things off my property already (thanks!) so it's good to see this stuff going where it should go.  Back on surviving 510s!  That was the whole point.

 

Frank came over Sunday and needed some sheet metal for a car he's working on.  Keegan dropped by too and before you knew it...

That is a great parts car for sure!  That dash looks really nice, although grungy!  Good luck parting!!

This is great thread! Had fun reading through your adventures. I just went through a similar situation, but with 2 B210 coupes. I'm in Cali so they are in much better condition, and one has been sitting in a backyard since 1976. WA weather is brutal on cars. Nice work saving what you could!

Made some more progress on the sedan today.  My parents were up and my dad helped for a bit so that was cool.  Also had a couple visitors picking up parts.  Ready to have this all done though so I can get back to work on Rice Wagon and Swamp Thing.

Can't see it in this picture but the floors are rotted out pretty bad!

Dash almost ready for extraction

Anyone need seats?  I'd prefer to give them to someone who wants to reupholster than throw them in the trash bin.

A B210 sitting since 1976?  Was it driven there from the dealer?  What the heck?!

Got the dash out after Church.  It was 30 something degrees out.  SO COLD!!!  I wanted to get the drive train out today too but I gave up.  Freezing out there.  My fingers were numb.

Got the fenders off too.  Frame rails look nice actually!

You still have front strut tower tops?

I need a pair.

The wagon ones are gone but I will have a pair from the sedan.  I may have another set too from a different car...  PM me if interested.  Someone hack up your strut towers installing camber plates or something?

Almost finished disassembling the sedan yesterday.  Surprisingly nice weather (although cold and windy) but also had some Ratsun friends visit and a car loaded on a trailer and tons of parts left the property.

 

Roof!

It was supposed to snow today so I didn't think I would be able to work on the car but by the time I got home from church, there was nothing on the ground and even though it was only 36 degrees, I really wanted to get this thing done so I made one last push...

 

I got the front suspension, engine, and tranny out first.  A guy wanted the strut towers...

 

large.5a8a22cd0a90a_02182018twins(2).JPG

 

large.5a8a22d27a53a_02182018twins(3).JPG

 

The floor has some major rust issues but could certainly be used for patches and there are quite a few feet of good rocker as well.

Gone!!!

 

large.5a8a22f2412a8_02182018twins(8).JPG

 

Now to finish dispersing the parts and then I can get back to work on my own Datsuns!
