Bend Over Oregon 68 4 door Datsunsvilles next up

Recommended Posts

Well tried buying this car in 2015, but couldn't work a deal with Brian. then Denmarkboy got it added a nest o parts and sold it to me.

 

Originally from Bend, story goes it was n a field for 20+ years getting beat by kids. Then hobos have groupie sex in it.

 

Here is a pic thanks to Brian

Got ir to ROLL off the trailer and ready for its roof.

 

Also while there Chris will be constructing a left rear quarter and welding it in.

 

This 68 is super rust free, needs 4 doors, 1 fender, trunk lid and hood. but more rust free then most. :)

My first Datsun was a 7 years old Canadian '68 4 door. Had the amber turn signals on the back.

Very cool. We kept saying that car had "keepers special" written all over it.

I wouldn't care if it was. I donated it to get it the fuck out of my garage.

What are you going to do for the roof? I know a kid in Springfield with a 68 he may be willing to part with.

This is a great idea, make this car the Cant'buy 2017 raffle car. Everyone can pitch in parts to help promote the Ratsun Community!

 

I'll help

James what is the vin on that baby!  The wagon of doom was super low vin (seatbelts said 67 on them) and it didn't have the "block" brake proportioning valve like this does.  This one has to be super low!

That roof wow. Trunk floor and spare tub are awesome. From first look it was really bad but there was still a lot there. Metal man did great work.

 

That's not a 510? What the story?
