New member with a 1964 1500

Recommended Posts

Thought I would go ahead and introduce my new to me vehicle. I purchased this August 2015 and drove it a couple months before it got put in the barn for the winter. Loved every minute of it, but it does seem to run a bit hot and have a small exhaust leak that will be addressed when the snow melts. Car is in good shape, and I look forward to long ownership and a full restoration one day. At least there is not any rust that I need to deal with. I will have to get some better pictures this spring. It's 100% stock down to the wheel covers. Yes it still has the jump seat too. My 5 year old thought it was awesome when she got to sit in it to drive around the neighborhood.

 

Taking delivery (barely fit on the rails)

Home safe and sound.

Glad to finally see someone on here with a 1500.  :thumbup:

 

And in case you haven't stumbled upon it yet, a very good source for information is 311s.org. Not as fun as Ratsun, but it's Roadster specific, so...    ^_^

Take good care of that jewel!  The set of original wheel covers may well be worth more as a set than you paid for the car! Resist the temptation to go to 15 inch wheels!  With the jump seat you really need to preserve the original 13 inch wheel setup.

Please show a Pic of the engine compartment!  I am curious as to whether you have the first configuration single "SU" carb with the red banjo air cleaner, or the later dual SU carbs with the elongated dual carb air filter housing.

Very nice. Where did it come from (and where is it now)?

Came from Ohio, bought it from a guy who bought it from a Nissan dealership. It's in Utah now.

It has the dual carb setup. It's registered as a 65, but the chassis stamp shows it to be a 64. I will put up more pictures this spring when it comes out of storage.

 

No plans on changing wheel setup. I even like the white walls.
