HRH Posted September 15, 2008 Report Share Posted September 15, 2008 I know there have to be a few other odd Datsun 510 owners such as myself, who even though they LOVE rear wheel drive, thought, hey, if there was a way to make my PL510 4x4 for even faster rally action, perhaps I could do it. Which brings me to 86 Stanza 4x4 wagons. There's one on CL for $350 right now. 1. Yes, I know, insanely difficult swap. 2. Has anyone tried to fit a sideways CA20 into the engine bay of a 510, and would it fit? 3. Assuming you find the incredibly rare 4x4 stanza, which is primarily FF, is there a way to lock out whatever center diff or 4x4 system they have to provide 50/50 split, or will it be forever mostly FF? My actual thought was to take the sawzall and cut the body pan from the Stanza wagon (intact) and weld the 510 body onto it. Yes, yes, much booing from purists now, but what if I made it look like it was factory? I'm sure this will catch much flack, but I'm still curious to know if it can be done, has it ever BEEN done, and what are the highly esteemed board members' opinions? :D Quote Link to comment
