Bluebirds for Sale

12 September 2017 - 07:22 PM

As I come across 1968-1972 Datsun Bluebirds for sale - I will dump them in here.  See one you like?  Call your local importer or US Navy buddy stationed in Japan and buy the dang thing!  It isn't all that expensive to ship them over and get them through customs.  Contact your state DOL first though to make sure you a) can license/title it and B) get all the required paperwork.

 

Go ahead and use this thread to share your own Datsun import experience, especially if it contains something helpful for the next guy/gal.

 

Michael Spreadbury and Julian Serles put together a nice article on the510realm about buying a Bluebird Coupe, but much of the information is applicable to all Bluebirds.  It  is linked here:

Thanks and enjoy.

P.S.  Don't give me a hard time about the years in the listings.  They generally go by production year which is often a year before our registration year.  Also, you will see many mix and match grills/dashes/tail lights/etc on these cars so it is hard to tell sometimes what the car really is. In general, I'm just reporting what is in the ad.


Mesh wheels on a lowered 620

24 July 2017 - 12:10 PM

Anyone have a photo?  I have an opportunity to get a set for my truck but I have a feeling they could look really nice or really awful.

I went through the truck wheel thread and didn't see any but 90% of the photos are photobucket fails.


For the 2dr 510 wagon lovers...

WA state parts delivery?

19 June 2017 - 10:49 AM

Anyone north of Seattle heading south to (or through) Vancouver, WA in the next couple of weeks?

I need to get a 620 rear axle assembly to a guy in Vancouver.  I'll pay your gas ($25?)

Let me know, thanks.

Datsun 620 door panels - standard vs deluxe

17 June 2017 - 11:54 AM

I have 79 Deluxe KC doors on my 78 620.  The door panels go all the way up to the window.  I'd like to swap them for the shorter standard door panels.  Is there any difference in the doors themselves that would prevent this swap?

 

Thanks for the info.
