    The '67.5 has a different gauge arrangement than the '66 and '67. The '67.5 also has dual-circuit brakes. The dash and windshield height changed for '68. There is no such thing as a '66.5.

    This guy insists that this roadster is a '66 and a half. No such thing. He's pretty snotty about it, too! http://portland.craigslist.org/clk/cto/4013194927.html

    Check out the tech wiki on www.311s.org - there's an off-the-shelf K & N filter that will fit. Beautiful car!

    North west datsun owners association

    I'm interested. I enjoyed the NWDE meetings when I lived in Seattle. I'll try and make it this Sunday. I'm going to the Shedd roadster BBQ on Saturday, and I'm not sure I can get a hall pass for Sunday. If not, let me know about next Month's meeting!

    About to start building my 2nd LeMons car.

    I took a look at this car - the body was really straight! I would have bought it if it had a title.....

    Dick Dean Datsun Hot Rod

    Here's a pdf of the plans http://shiftco.com/dotrod/Dotrod.pdf If anyone has any more info please post it here. I've been wanting to build one of these for years. I used to have a scan of an article from a 70's magazine of a mini truck-based hot rod where they cut and welded the bed into an open roadster style "body". I'd love to find that again!

    1964 310 top and brakes Question

    The '65s were transitional, meaning it may or may not have certain parts that changed around that time. If you windshield frame is like the early 1500s, it will have 3 short "rods" on the top edge for the bow of the top. Later cars have 2 holes for the latches on the later bow. They are not interchangeable. Later spindles with disc brakes will swap over, but you will no longer be able to use the stock 13" 1500 wheels. Tons of roadster info and board at 311s.org

    This ad has.it all - wrong about the year, delusional about the value, and illiterate! http://portland.craigslist.org/clk/cto/3590346968.html Edit, he fixed the year - previously called it a '67.5.
