SOLD. New owner taking her back to VIC where she came from. Goodbye datsun, gonna miss you







Well I've decided after my Datsun sat for years to let it go to someone who will enjoy it. I've had so much fun driving this car and all the modification work and learning from this site has been a fantastic experience. I would like to get all I can for it though, so don't be offended if I don't accept a price.

It is on historic plates, was put on them only 2 years ago.

Look at my pictures for pics of the car (click next to my name - when looking at one of my pics already,, see below), I will get some more sexy photos of it soon as I will be putting it up for sale in multiple places.

'73 1200 Coupe factory orange paint (bonnet is matte black non genuine)
worked a15 engine with heavily ported head and larger valves and pistons
oil cooler using sandwich plate, extra sensors used by means of a remote block for oil pressure
factory dash (with cracks), additional digital oil temp, pressure guages and digital tacho
elec decent fuel pump in rear, fuel pressure adjuster in engine bay. Elec fuel pump will STOP when there is no oil pressure (DIY circuit)
electronic distributor, modified by Jeff Taylor (the datsun god) out in St Marys (re-graphed)
also have a intake manifold gasket (made of soft metal-like material) from Jeff Taylor (will last a long time)
63a gearbox with factory A series housing, dogleg rally box, with genuine gearstick top showing the dogleg pattern
MadDat gearbox mount
clutch changed to hydralic with use of MadDat mounting plate in the engine bay, on firewall
custom modified tailshaft from a bluebird (fits the 63a box to a standard 145 rear axle)
4-1 headers ceramic coated and newly heatwrapped as well. 2" system with flexible flange, O2 sensor, long hotdog + sports muffler
new/refurb 38 DGAS carb (needs tuning but it purrs like a kitten and revs like a lion at idle)
car starts very easily even after sitting for a long time, electronic choke
stanza struts with the big calipers, adjustable strut tops, good quality strut brace
all replaced front end suspension incl 120Y rods, heavier sway bar, polyurethane all round
new front suspension shocks in-box to be installed
rear adjustable koni's, standard leaf springs, rear drum brakes were fully serviced/replaced about 200KM ago
14" old school rally rims (were gold, still quite gold) (one of them has a very slow leak, needs to be welded shut)
mudflaps
towbar
body has kept all original dings from the original owner (nice old lady who lived in Wangaratta). Most of the factory body trim is still in-tact including the boot lining.
factory seats still in decent condition
seatbelts were installed when I got the car, nothing special
front drivers seat is from a Madza, much sportier and bucket-ier than factory, adjustable.
extra rear brake light bar (has fallen off the windscreen just needs to be mounted back on there)
headlights upgrade to 100W halogen with relays
parker light upgrade with bright LED's
random LED upgrades around the car as well, I cant remember them all eg festoon lamp, some external too
indicator stick factory upgrade with the flasher button (flash high beams at bad drivers or in emergency)
upgraded speakers with tweeters, amplifier under front passenger seat, you can connect your phone up and play tunes
factory radio
voltmeter + temp LED display placed over the top of the factory radio
factory orange paint, with paint code sticker still in-tact in the engine bay
large radiator made to fit, partly covered as its too efficient in winter :)
electric fan with temeperature sensor fed into the water inlet on the head

probably more I cannot think of right now...
I have some spares such as the original Coupe center console and other misc stuff.

I am open to offers of above 10K AUD. The car is in Middle Cove NSW, 2068. Feel free to hate me about the price, sorry!

Finders fee for anyone who can help me sell for a decent price too.

I am in no rush to sell - I will probably but a fast street car with the money, with enough seats/room for a family.

ordered a refurbished 38 DGAS (w/ electric choke) from in Australia, along with all the bits I should need to get it mounted up. The guy supplying it has dyno'd worked A15's before so he has a general idea of jetting so he will change jets as he feels apt before shipping.
Cant wait to get it going. Will post pics!

thx for the replies

Awesome - that cheap Megasquirt and Ford Falcon TBI setup looks so good but I just don't have the time and ability to get these things now-a-days with family and such. I have asked Rowland for a price + delivery on the manifold (those manifolds look like they have much higher airflow than the place I was considering buying the weber + manifold kit from).

Xmas present to self - ability to drive datsun more :)

Thanks D

I bought the manifold from South Africa - it looks like a beast. Still on the hunt for a 38 DGAS carby or a 32/36 DGAV
The water galleries on my A15 head are all blocked off so not sure how an automatic choke would go without those...

tired of my twin 40 DCOE's falling out of tune everytime I drive my Datsun. So I am looking to buy a manifold + down draft weber.

There are a few stores in Australia where I can buy them new, but they want like 1K for the kit (weber, manifold and adapter if needed)

Just thought I would ask if anyone has anything to sell so I can save some $.

I also have two spare 40 webers, dismantled at the moment. Would be happy to trade them.

My existing A15 head is heavily ported with 10:1 compression, so I will likely need to bore out any manifold I acquire so they semi-match.
As far as I know any stock A15 manifold would be OK, with an adapter plate which I can buy.

thanks

good work nak3d welcome to the club mate! you clearly belong here !

hope the build goes nicely. if you need any little bits and pieces just ask, I've got lots of parts, but a lot of them are stored at a farm a few hour out of Syd.

Looking for one of these for historic racing. Looked far and wide, really trying to find one. If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated.


Just the motor would be nice, but if there is still a '67 Fairlady lying around, we just might be able to make a deal.

contact me on this site or call my dad Phil on 0428 742 950. Warning if you talk to him about datsuns he may talk your ear off. Thanks again!

thanks for that I will shoot them an email. i have bought parts from http://www.weberperformance.com.au/ in the past, their prices appear to be a little bit cheaper, but they dont sell 1/2 price chokes!
cheers
