Stoffregen Motorsports Posted August 15, 2011 Report Share Posted August 15, 2011 I just sold my Datsun L320 and part of the deal was to install a 720 frame clip on the 320 before the buyer took it away. I have a clip from a 720 that I will be installing during the next couple of weeks and I will be posting with pics as I go along. The conversion is pretty straight forward. I didn't want to do as others have done and use the stock 320 control arms, because the 720 geometry is better. So I will be chopping the frame around the motor mount area, narrow the 720 clip to accept the stock 320 torsion rod width, and end up with a WMS width of about 2.75" wider than stock. This will put the tires just under the fenders and most people won't know the difference. I am also converting from the single master cylinder to the dual circuit master, but I won't be using the booster. One major difference is where the steering box mounts. On the 320 it's connected to the steering column via a tube and it's mounted on the inside of the frame. The 720 box is mounted on the outside of the frame and will use a u-jointed shaft instead. The stock wheels will clear the calipers and rotors so we will be using those instead of going aftermarket. I think the stock wheels with hubcaps and whitewalls look better anyways. It's not a race car... Here's the truck "before" 1 Quote Link to comment
