510 Supersonic Grill

I've already checked with Love20Bee who have sold out, so does anyone know of any other supliers of the re-made supersonic grill for the 510.

 

Thanks,

 

JK

I've got one on a boat somewhere, not had the VAT or Duty bill yet so no idea what the landed price is. PM me if you want to make an offer, I don't need it anymore. 

 

If it arrives let me know. I have possibly found one in the UK.

Sorry, I didn't notice the Unavailable tag.

 

Datsun-garage is Love20bee?

 

I didn't know that.  I thought they just had the grills made to raise capital for their custom wheel venture which looks like it takes all their time and workspace.

It still showed in stock when you posted the link. Someone jumped on it.

It looks like not all of their stuff is, but he is one of the vendors they sell.  It has the vendor listed under the item.

The grill (grille) you are after is not a "supersonic" or a "super sports sedan" grill.  Those are both marketing names.  It is the grill used on all 1972 model year bluebirds in Japan.  Although SSS cars in Japan did have this grill in '72, it had a SSS emblem.  GL cars had a GL emblem.  DX cars (and standard?) had the supersonic emblem in the center.

Matt, AKA Love20Bee, was making vintage repro parts for early Mazda cars and then started doing Datsun stuff when people started asking for it. He was going to make quite a few things and he did some Z bumpers and the grilles. Dash Pads, Tail light finishers and Bluebird Coupe tail lights where all in the works, but after he got some negative comments for making rare stuff become common, and combined with the pain of dealing with vendors overseas, he pulled the plug on the parts side and focused on the wheel side. 

 

Maybe he might make more grills since the tooling has been made for them.

Not trying to derail this thread but can you share what models came with the "Safari" grill?
