5 speed manual hard to find in the US. Are there other 5 speeds that would work with out a lot of trouble? Any Toyota ones having same bolt pattern to the engine? I am guessing a drive shaft would have to be modified.

Secret VIN # I just became aware that there are secret VIN numbers stamped in hidden places on cars. In some states in the US the VIN that you usually see must match the hidden one, if not the car can be taken by the state and destroyed,

Where is the one for the Datsun 1200?

After not getting replies for several years, I noticed that I had 15 replies by PM. I used to get them by email. Don't know how that happened. I made the switch back to email.

My apologies to everyone that replied to me.

Came across a 1200 Coupe. Good body, paint, good interior, A15 engine. Problem being it is right hand drive. I need left hand drive. I have a totally wore out 1200 coupe with about 800,000 miles on it. Was a rust bucket when I got it w/only 180,000 miles on it. Also have 2 1200 sedan parts cars. All are left hand drive. Possible to switch from right to left w/out reinventing the wheel?

Almost impossible to find 5 speed manual in the USA for 1200 coupe. Any other 5 speeds that will work? I am thinking maybe same vintage Toyota ones might work, Atleast have same bolt pattern to the engine as both Toyotas and Datsuns began as Austins built under license.

How much does SR 20 Engine Weigh? How much does A14 Engine weigh. Considering installing SR20 in 1200 coupe, but don't want to if it weighs enough to throw of the wieght distribution enought to adversely affect handling.

Been seeing 1200 coupes with SR20 Engines hitting just under 200MPH in the 1/4 mile. The bodies look pretty much stock except for the ginormous drag slicks at the rear.

I would settle for 100 MPH in the quarter! Just want to build a very fast street car.

Has anybody tried using an A15 crank in an A12 Block? What Kind of rods were used? Someone suggested that I find some pistons that had piston Pin holes closer to the top to compensate for the longer stroke. I did not like that idea as I would think that shorter rods would mean less weight flying around in there.
