    I have available a pair of front seats that came out of my '71 510 (i upgraded to Corbeaus and these are just taking up space in my basement). They were in the car when i purchased it back in 2005- i was told at the time they were out of an '88 Integra. They were original at the time, but i had them recovered around 2010. There is one small tear on the upper back of one of the seats, some slight discoloration, and one of the studs on the bottom of one of the seats is partially sheared off, but they have plenty of life left for someone who needs a decent pair of seats. Given the imperfections and that they are much too large to ship, I'm willing to make a killer deal for whomever will take them off my hands- FREE! Feel free to PM me for additional pics or info. To install, the new owner may have to make a few modifications to the floor pan for the mounts (i'm not totally sure about this, just want to make you aware), although i think the seats have been retrofitted onto original Datsun seat rails. Located in Stone Mountain, GA (suburb of Atlanta). Obviously pickup only.

  6. '72 2-dr shell in Loganville/Snellville area: http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/for/3913858691.html The seller is on the Realm (akaspec48)- not sure if he posted it on Ratsun, so figured I'd help him out
  7. Yeah, I've always heard/read that as well. The only better options are an early Maxima intake (which positions the throttle body at the front of the motor- not really convenient for 510s) or a custom gutted intake plenum. Pathfinder seems to be the best option if you're looking for increased hp/tq numbers.
  8. Nice VG dime! Looks really clean. You're right about the Z31 manifold not fitting in the car, but it's because the manifold itself is so long that it hits the firewall. The Pathfinder manifold is the one that sits up too high and contacts the hood unless the lower part of the manifold is machined down. 200SX manifold is the way to go if you don't want to have to do any parts machining or notching of the firewall. Keep up the progress!
  9. Mods, just noticed I posted this in the wrong For Sale section- please move it if possible. If not I'll repost in the correct place. Thanks.
  10. No longer need any L-series stuff, so clearing out these intake manifolds. Edelbrock L-series manifold with what I think is an adaptor plate for a Weber carb (not sure though). Same manifold that is shown in the book "How to Hotrod and Race your Datsun." Also have an Offenhauser Dual Plane L-series manifold (6002-DP). This manifold was made specifically for an L-16 but I've read that it will fit an L20B as well. One of the carb mounting studs is missing about 1/4" off the top of the stud as you can see in the pics below. Both manifolds had been sitting in boxes for years, so I recently put them in the parts cleaner to clean them up a bit. Asking $150 + shipping for the Edelbrock and $125 + shipping for the Offenhauser. I'll answer any questions I can as well as provide more pics if requested. Thanks.
  11. '72 4-dr dime (Florida panhandle) - $3000 obo http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/cto/3791380683.html
  12. 510 "racecar" in Gainesville, GA ($4750): http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/cto/3788749953.html no glass, no roll cage (though it looks like it used to have one)
  13. Was just about to post this- thought the description was hilarious!
  14. Was out riding my bike when I came across this dime- first one I've ever seen in Athens. Turned around and stalked him for a while until he stopped at his work. Car has an L18 with 32/36 Weber. He told me he picked it up years ago in Seattle and brought it back to the east coast.
  15. Oh don't get me wrong, i would kill to drive anything with that motor too, regardless of what it is
