#1534589 DATSUN HOTWHEELS (and some other ones)

Posted by Lockleaf on 13 December 2017 - 09:26 PM

Does anybody have a 1969 dodge charger or charger 500 they would be willing to let go of? Like these but any color.

No Daytona please. I don't care about paint scheme, out of package is just fine.

Also looking for a 1949 Ford COE truck, same story.

Used and tired is fine.

I'm planning to try building a series of Roadkill cars.

I've sourced cars/parts to build the mazdarati, blasphemi, general maintenance, rotsun, and the crusher impala. Looking for these two to build general mayhem and stubby bob.

If you're actually willing, i don't need the wiring or computer etc. I would be interested in the intake manifold with fuel components and throttle body etc, the distributor, and the intake piping/air filter box.

Fan freaking tastic. 1200 coupe is next on my Datsun list.

#1534227 Best way to find 720's for Sale?

Posted by Lockleaf on 11 December 2017 - 12:15 PM

There used to be a site called craiglook that would search all craigslist sites across the country, but I don't know if it still works.


I use searchtempest. It searches all Craigslist based on mileage distance from your zip code. Works well enough.

Why not use the flat hood pins?

Actually best mileage is to run lean. Many modern vehicles run in the 15s when cruising. According to the eco-modder guys, one step shy of meltdown is really where you want to be.


#1534078 1984 720 purchase

Clean truck. Very nice. You never see bumpers and front valances that good of condition.

Please remove those hub caps immediately. Black Steelies look far superior to those any day. Even if you just rattle can some new black over dirt and rusted rims, it will still look better.

To really repair rust severe enough to be buckling you need to cut it completely out. Rust reformer type products only work on surface rust. So to really fix the problem first remove, then replace.

Yep. I didn't notice i could read your wiper stalk in the pic. The first position marked "int" meaning intermittent. I would bet that is the wiper amp. The wiring will be in the dash board. The amp is wired in before the motor.

Are you selling old parts? Are you offering advice on how they were built? There are guys who will be interested either way, just not sure what you are offering everyone.

Snug. Likely 8-10 ft lbs.

Yeah that car is not worth what that dude invested in it. He would have done better spending the dough on an automotive education and some tools then built it himself. He would be better off.
