Datsun 210 B310 wagon suspension part out

09 April 2018 - 09:08 AM

Front and rear suspension of my 1980 Datsun 210 wagon are ready to be parted out. Everything including struts, brakes, control arms, swap bar, cross-member, steering box, rear axle, you name it. It's all rusty but I am willing to separate and ship whatever you need. Or come to southern Indiana 47201 to pick what you need. 




210 Wagon Racer on a Budget

17 January 2018 - 07:56 AM

New member here, and new owner of a 1980 210 wagon. I know it's a B310, but where else would this go. I picked up this pile for $180. It's mostly complete, with a bunch of pieces in the back, but rusty has hell. The plan is to race in the Grassroots Motorsports $2018 Challenge, the annual budget drag racing and autocross competition for cars built under $2,0XX. I've been participating off and on since 2012 and it's a blast. This year there is an unofficial sub-class for station wagons, with the winner getting nothing but bragging rights and points taken from his IQ. What better candidate for a lightweight, cheap, competitive wagon than a Datsun? 


I'm planning to swap a VQ35, trans, and IRS from a G35. I know it's a tall order, but I'm no stranger to an angle grinder and welder. I'm hoping with the VQ being front sump, I should clear the steering link of the 210. Crossmember, tunnel, firewall, and probably even shock towers will likely get cut. It's snowing now and I'm too deep into my autocross Model A hot rod project to even think about touching this. I have a few leads on cheap donor cars that I don't mind keeping around for a bit, including one I might pick up this weekend.
