#1541366 64' Datsun 320 Field Find

Posted by 66Fairlady on 22 January 2018 - 01:12 AM

I have extra 320 cross members if you need one.


Wayno, This is a 64 truck and came with a column shift.

You can see the cut off shift column in the engine room picture!

The trans cover in the picture is for the column shift trans.

A PO has cut a hole in it for a floor shift trans.


Jacob, you said in your first post that advise was appreciated.

Do not be offended but this truck has really been abused and is best considered a parts 320

There are 100's more hours of work than you anticipate.
Start on a more complete one.

You will get discouraged trying to get this one back to life.

#1538017 Pulling my L320 from mothballs

Posted by 66Fairlady on 01 January 2018 - 11:52 PM

I bought these off that guy's eBay store:



Are they stock 320? The contour of the chrome mounts fit the contour of where they attach on my 320 above the windshield but the existing hole pattern above my windshield is different .

YES, Stock 320 sun visors, Pictures show a plain plastic visor that mounts differently on the early 320 trucks.

Just heard from Willy, the seller, that the parts are gone.

He was going to put them on eBay but must have gotten an acceptable offer for the lot.

Anyone here get them?



#1527547 320 Gas tank Sending Unit Clean Up & Test

Posted by 66Fairlady on 06 November 2017 - 09:27 PM

Here is a write up for the procedure on NICO.


There are two adjustment holes on each gauge. The one indicated adjusts the needle in the hot position.

What you are turning inside the gauge is like a rheostat to change resistance.

Same concept applies to the gas gauge.

The other hole is to adjust the set point where the needle rests when you turn the key off. Really of not much concern and I have not tried it.

#1527473 320 Gas tank Sending Unit Clean Up & Test

Posted by 66Fairlady on 06 November 2017 - 01:28 PM

Nice clean up job Eddy. Glad the sender was repairable. Tank inside as clean as  it seemed?

The early 60's temp and fuel gauges are adjustable from the back.

You can adjust the needle to sit at the full mark when the tank is full.

#1301926 Reproduction NL (N) 320 tail light lenses

Posted by 66Fairlady on 30 September 2015 - 09:06 AM

Reproduction NL (N) 320 tail light lenses are back on Ebay.
This seller made these in the past and he said he was going to make
them again so he probably has more than 1 pair. 
These were problems before with bubbles in the plastic but this set looks clear
He has reproduced the front round clear signal lenses. Just the lens and not the chrome ring
and the 64 wedge shaped orange signal lenses.
He might still have them available.

#1300923 320 Hubcap Reproduction

Posted by 66Fairlady on 27 September 2015 - 05:54 PM

The proposed reproduction of 320 hubcaps is abandoned.

There is insufficient interest at the price of $100 a cap.


#1294835 1960 PLG-221 info sought

Posted by 66Fairlady on 09 September 2015 - 08:42 AM


As a local truck brother would say "VERY interesting"

The bottom line "CAR NO" is the real identifier.

It is hard to read at the angle but it looks like "LG221-9 and that should match the vin # stamped on the frame.

LG221 is the model and "9" is the year of production BUT somehow LG220 was stamped on the top "type" line..

The "model for year" is stamped 1959 and matches the 9 in the "car no".

The remainder of the "car no" is a sequential production #. with the first digit being a sub type code if needed.

For example a NL320 will have a "6" as the first digit. I can not make out what it is in the picture.

Sometimes there is a letter stamped after the digits. We have not determined what it signifies.

I do not see one on your tag.


Looks like you have a 1959 221 truck. It is in very nice condition.


Also, what is the engine #?. It looks like a only 2 digits at the end!. An amazingly early "C" motor.?

Does the truck have the original motor with that #?


BTY, I have a NOS front bumper guard that might fit. I can not identify it but it looks the same.

If you need it send me a variety of measurements that I can compare to mine.

It looks like your truck is a 221 model with the round front marker lights and 221 hubcaps.

But maybe these lights were on export 220s

Do you have a picture of the VIN tag?

If so, please post it.

The 220 was a 1958 model but there are many examples of a different year stamped on the vin tags.

Always interesting to learn about these early Trucks.



#1287919 New to the forum..need parts for my L320 project

Posted by 66Fairlady on 20 August 2015 - 08:28 PM

I have some of the parts you need.

60 HP emblems, 1200 emblem, side trim, correct steering wheel (rough), Ash tray.

I have a column shift trans cover. Not the same as you need but may be a piece to start with as the edge layout is the same.

FYI, the door pull handles are mounted upside down.

#1020738 What are the local Datsun/Nissan f2f actual clubs in your area?

Posted by 66Fairlady on 12 December 2013 - 08:08 PM

Hi Guys.


I am the "List Meister" for 2 Datsun groups in the Puget Sound area.

These are Email lists of Datsun roadster and truck owners. Not organized clubs. 


DROPS. Datsun Roadsters Owners of Puget Sound. Currently 90 list members.

Truck Brothers. Puget Sound Datsun 320 520 and 521 truck owners. Currently 17 list members with 8! NL320s among us!.

Lots of knowledge,help, parts, etc  from these folks but we are more reserved than the Ratsun crowd.


If your in the area (or close) and want to join up, let me know with info and pics of your vehicles (email me directly).

These are not open groups and I vet those who want to join.

But I let Wayne in both lists so the standards are not very high! HaHa.
