    Wrecking Yard Report

    First year (1979) 210 goon just arrived at Carson City NV Pick & Pull: https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/RNDj0OMcI4ZpXuQYoFjmVr3aS 1976 620 just arrived in Redding: https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/RNDI1RQNTCdhWk4xIb26qLE6j Is anyone planning on going to Carson city? If the thing still has a complete A14 engine, I need a set of hoist hooks.

    They're eye-catching, but not that rare. You can get one in much better condition for next to nothing. They only went about 20 miles between charges (unless you had to really strain the engine by doing something like climbing a hill), and the batteries were almost as expensive as the rest of the car when they needed replacing....and all that was assuming the car worked as it was supposed to, which many of them didn't: trusty Chinese technology. Still, it would make a neat foundation for a Mustie1 type project.

    Yep, back around New Years I extracted an engine from a notchback version in Redding.

    I re-visited the blue 1980 200SX in Stockton P&P again this last weekend in the 106-degree heat. Here's what she looks like now 20180623_151013 by emanistan, on Flickr I took the bumper off to get at the brightwork for one of our other Ratsun citizens, and of course the grill was one of my prizes on the last visit. 20180623_151050 by emanistan, on Flickr Notice the perfect set of tail-lights. I wish someone would grab them. 20180623_151739 by emanistan, on Flickr I think the dent in the left rear happened after she got to the junkyard 20180623_152204 by emanistan, on Flickr 20180623_131351 by emanistan, on Flickr I think someone's been in here since my last visit... 20180623_133403 by emanistan, on Flickr ..maybe trying for the transmission? Note the detached speedo cable. Also, though you cant see it from this angle, the front engine heat shield was partly detached and hanging. Oddly enough, someone sawed a section of exhaust pipe out just forward of the muffler. Can't figure out why. 20180623_131343 by emanistan, on Flickr Don't know how this plate got so chewed up. 20180623_131316 by emanistan, on Flickr August 1979 20180623_131259 by emanistan, on Flickr Someone slipped that shifter knob from another car on since my last visit. Part of the reason I think they were interested in the tranny 20180623_150218 by emanistan, on Flickr Not bad 20180623_151643 by emanistan, on Flickr I think I mentioned last time that the interior was plain vinyl. I was wrong; it's the same fancy checkerboard velour as the Redding car was -not that it matters, since it's in the same rotten and shredded condition. I totally forgot to mention this 78 240Z last time: 20180623_150848 by emanistan, on Flickr It's sparked quite a feeding frenzy. 20180623_150905 by emanistan, on Flickr 20180623_150921 by emanistan, on Flickr Frankly I'm surprised there are as many good parts left as there are. 20180623_150839 by emanistan, on Flickr Need an engine? ...or a slightly used Zap Xebra with a parcel shelf covered in mouse droppings? 20180623_153707 by emanistan, on Flickr Seriously, it would make a fun project if I had the room for it.

    I Think all the 200SXs from the 1980 model year on used fuel injection.

    No louvers on the back, but please find a way to come pick the snot out of it. It would be a tragedy for this old girl to go into the crusher as more than a shell. As for the pump, I Pm'd you back.

    Another early-production (August 1979) 2nd generation 200SX just arrived at Stockton Pick-n-Pull https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/RNDkKMT7ckPUjNbiOUtGSdQdA 20180610_110029 by emanistan, 20180610_110016 by emanistan, on Flickr This one is in slightly better condition than the notchback that was in Redding at the end of last year, though it's still rough. I got all the wheel rims, the grill, the front domelight console, the oil dipstick, and the windshield washer reservior/squirter in case the person who wanted one back in November is still looking. Otherwise, it's all still there. I neglected to take any photos of the back, but the tail-lights are all complete. I probably won't be going to Stockton again soon, so anyone who wants anything from this car had better go themselves or put in a parts request on the website within the next month or two. Stockton seems to be one of the busier, more high turnover P&P yards I've visited so far, so I'm sure this beauty won't be there long. Save what can be saved now before she's turned into beer cans. I really wish I could pull this engine like I did the one in Redding, but it was a big enough hassle getting that one across town and finding space for it. No way I could secure this one for a 200-mile trip, and if I did I'd get one hell of a lecture when I got home with it.

    Decklid racks.

    Since I started this thread I've managed to find a few period images. There's this French Canadian commercial on Youtube which offers some good glimpses of one on a blue sedan: and then there's the accessories brochure for the 610, which shows the same type wn4496b (1) by emanistan For my personal project though, it no longer matters. I love junkyard exploring--its how I found my car in the first place--and when I can't explore junkyards myself, I sometimes watch videos of other people doing it. A few months ago I came across this video of these fellows exploring Han's Foreign Auto Parts in Minnesota: There are a few things here to interest old Datsun lovers, but what made me salivate was the decklid rack on the circa 1980 Lancia Zagato towards the middle of the video. To make a long story short, I shot out a few emails, and after a pleasant transaction with Han's--who I recommend highly--it arrived at my PO box. Here it is posed on my Sunny: 20180104_163301 by emanistan It's the exact right size, but I need to make some adjustments to the mounting feet before bolting it on.

    I'll probably go back this week to get the transmission & the motor mounts, so I'll see what I can do.

    I try not to be an asshole Mr. Lockleaf, but sometimes I just can't help myself. After doing a little research, I decided this old girl is going to donate her heart to my little green B210. 20171216_161517 by emanistan, This act of assholism will continue tomorrow morning. I got the engine most of the way out, but something is still holding it in by a thread. Tomorrow I'll have to figure it out.

    Perhaps this weekend I'll look into how hard it will be to extract it, & maybe you'll get a christmas present.
