What would you do

13 November 2017 - 05:44 PM

I got two engines. One is a L18 with Closed Chamber w53 other is L20b with u67.  Hoping to run a single side draft carb and l16 header.


One has more torque, one is a rev master.


Its going in my new '74 620.

Introducing, Rugby the 620

22 July 2017 - 08:41 PM

I wasn't going to start a thread about this yet but i just can"t wait.


Here is Rugby.  1974 Datsun California Stepside 620.   L18 with w53 head 4 speed manual. It was removed from 23 years of storage a few months ago.  Older gentleman health issues, had to move into rest home. Anyways, the body is in great shape. no rust through but  Some minor body work has been done here and there. Engine cranks over but struggles to start. Probably needs the gas system cleaned, has some electrical issues with switches and stuff. Probably needs brakes gone through.  Inspected the floor boards briefly, looks good.

Came with alot of parts collected through his years. Nothing of the "find of the century" parts.  Got some original slot mags with old bias ply tires and alot of J Series engine parts.


I paid more than I should of but oh well.  Pics















Now to go through all the boxes of parts to see whats there. Also will take pics of inside once I get to check it out.

Happy 620 Day!

Just seeing if theres a good place to get metal patch panels for autobody repair.  Found some at home depot and such and also Eastwood. Just not sure on the quality.
