  1. I am also interested in a few sets. Very essential thing to have during restoration...and we all hate that darn window noise.
  2. My daughter has a framed poster ( that I have now) with each one of the family's race cars and each of of their personal notes to my daughter. My daugher was a patient at Children's Hospital many times and the NW Historics was to raise money for the hospital. My daughter still loves classic cars to this day!
  3. Oh sad, I got to know him and his family by being one of the folks who set up the NW Historics. He was always ready with a kind word.
  4. I finally found a house not far from downtown Puyallup, just off River Rd, going towards Tacoma. A bit of a fixer inside but super nice neighborhood and it has a 3 CAR GARAGE! Got to have our priorities! Lots of issues trying to get this darn place to close and now possibly issues with the sellers maybe NOTmoving their stuff out which includes a dead truck inside a garage, boat & trailer and other junk. I sure don't want to deal with vehicles with no titles. Sellers had moved out but just MOVED BACK IN, which has me worried. So possibly this place could close between the 16th to the
  5. A fellow was asking me if his (new to him) 320 truck has king pins and if they are interchangeable with the 520/521 models? I don't think they are or not sure if the 320 even has king pins? Anyone know? thanks.
  6. hi folks, thanks for all of the concern. I am staying inside as much as possible and have to wear a good face mask when I go outside to feed the animals and my poultry. thank goodness my pets and my car parts are ok! I am packing up to get out of here as soon as I can find a house that I can buy in my price range that is not in a neighborhood as bad as this one now is. I have three dogs, one who is large and very protective and seems to have great hearing so I know they keep me safe. I cannot handle a shot gun due to my issues with my hands now. So if anyone has an hour to come over and
  7. hi folks, so if I don't get back to you immediately it is because I am busy trying to help rehome the animals that belonged to the drug addict. Police hinted that it was a meth cooking accident. I saw a huge fireball shoot out the back of the house and blow out all of the windows and then when I was rushing around to get my dogs and me out to my car another huge fireball blew out the front and blew out all of the windows. Now I have issues with my lungs due to the smoke I inhaled, so on my way to an urgent care office to get treatment. Plus so many people have been coming over and tryin
  8. hi folks, this old guy is not mechanical at all, so he won't be able to figure these possible solutions out.
  9. hi folks, many years ago I drove to Wallingford, just north of downtown Seattle and repaired (by myself) this older guy's split fuel filler hose on his Datsun, either a 710 or 810 wagon. He was the nicest guy, retired, not much money at all however. Now he says his heater is not working and the mechanic wants loads of money to fix it, not actually knowing the situation. Possibly stuck valve? Or heater core needs taken out and rebuilt? He can pay a bit but not alot. I can give his name and number if anyone might be willing to put on Datsun angel wings and go and give him a call and a vis
  10. thanks, that will help with the cutting the costs down
  11. Yep, Datsun company did not want to make it easy for us.
  12. no hoses showing up at most sites, have not seen any listed yet at a Nissan site
  13. Contact me please....I have some parts left for your car. email: vindats@yahoo.com I have been selling early Datsun parts for over 30 years. Tana
  14. I think the E 1 motor mounts are different than the R 16 motors mounts for the 411's.
  15. hi, this is Tana and I do still have some 411 brake parts, best to email me: vindats@yahoo.com Hope we can all help this fellow and get that car going for him.
  16. very nice car....I would sure be happy with that one.
  17. Please mention that you have a 411 WAGON and you are looking for the rear glass. Hope you find one. I only have sedan rear glass.
  18. Seems to be some discussion about this, so here is it. I became very ill about 4 years ago and no longer have the big shop in Renton. I had to sell ALL (very sad) of my Datsuns. I still sell small early Datsun parts when I am able to do so. I do not have any engines or parts cars anymore. I am still very active with NWDE and DROPS. Somedays it is difficult for me to walk but I still love to do things with friends and family. Take it easy on Green Valley road south of Hwy 18. There was a another fatality recently and several more recent accidents. Road crews have been working on the
  19. No, that was my very own PL 410 that I had owned since 1976 that I sold last year. I have very poor health now, that most likely will not get much better so I have had to sell my Datsuns and still selling small early Datsun parts when I can.
  20. Rowland did a nice job with that truck. I saw it when he first started working on it. He is a good, trusty kind of guy. Please come to our NWDE meeting this Sunday if you can. Located at the Round Table Pizza in Renton,on 180th street right east of Ikea.
  21. I was in the U District,near Roosevelt and saw a sad beige 1200 with a big rust stain behind the front door. Sure don't see those around much anymore, just like the 510's.
  22. Spring is here! Flowers blooming everywhere...time to get that Datsun up and running.

  23. hi, just to let you folks know, that I am going to start listing some of my good used and many new Nissan parts for the 410s and 411s. Just trying to lighten up my load a bit. I still have quite a few parts left. I do not have any body parts left, just a couple of rear glass windows, no other glass. Not willing to ship the glass, sorry. Greyhound will no longer guarantee damage on parts shipped with them. Happy driving!

    Can anyone get ahold of Graveltrapp, who claims he wants these? His message box is full and I am not sure who he is.

    I have not heard from Graveltrapp or anyone else about these valuable free 410/411 body parts, sure hate to have to give them to the metal scrapper.
