DD: LOL! Two things: 1.) My coupe is still in 'paint jail' at the local body shop. Once it is back, I'll do a photoshoot and send along some images to you. 2.) For the life of me, I can't figure out how to post images here. I'll admit to not being the brightest lamp on the starting line Christmas tree, but man, these image posting things are pretty arcane.

Much OEM nicely. Have forgotten (too sad) to install Datsun tachometer to complete vision of accuracy.

Definitely U.S. spec per the marker lites and the LHD steering. Interesting that they dropped a modded A15 into it but kept the OEM 12" wheels/tires and forgot a Datsun in-dash tach. I'm with Rallyetwit...are they asking $21,658 or $2,165.80? If it's the latter sign me up.....if it's the former pfft.

There's a reason that there is a Briggs & Stratton decal on the rocker cover of my Volvo.
Volvo Penta engines, like The-Little-Engine-That-Could Datsun A12, are renowned for their simplicity and durability.
No worries about yours truly abandoning the 1200 camp, Tom! The Volvo is a placeholder only until my 1200 gets out of the paint shop in a couple of weeks.

Saw one of these at the Ford dealer the other day. Crew cab, 4WD, posh, fancy pants options. Nearly US$50k! My 2015 F250 turbo diesel Cowboy Cadillac cost all of $50k new! IMHO, the mfrs are missing the boat by not offering something like the Datsun and Toyota pickups from the 80s, utilitarian, tough, cheap, right-sized.

Tom, Re: 2020 PGP, we got us a convoy, good buddy! Looking at my Swear Jar $ on top of the 'fridge for funding. Might be able to fund both of us with the proceeds of that.

I was looking through the 'historique' photo set above (thanks DD!) and noticed that while the blue 1200 coupe showed up in a lot of the pics, the grey 1200 sedan showed up in several also. Perhaps this car is a refugee from the Portuguese 1200 sedan spec racing series of yore?

The Pau street race certainly looks like a blast, demanding one's complete attention! Put one wheel wrong and it's Armco for lunch.
Rallytwit & OgreInc dream of attending the U.S. version of this in Pittsburgh's Schenley Park, where there's a lot less Armco and a lot more stone walls & trees.

All it will take is a massive GoFundMe effort for race refreshing, cross-continent travel expenses and entry fees.

At today's rate, that equals US$31,591.25! A bit rich for any 1200 enthusiast's blood, I'd imagine. But if it came with a 40' cargo container worth of race spares comprised of unobtainium bits and pieces, along with a spare race-prepped rolling chassis, I might consider it. Awaiting a more detailed spec sheet from the seller - will keep one and all posted on what I find.

I use POR-15 products in areas I can reach with a brush, such as door seams, rocker exteriors, etc. Sets like iron, needs a topcoat if it will be exposed to the sun. (it's not UV resistant) For internal areas such as the inside of rocker panels, the cowl plenum, the underbody frame reinforcements, the engine tub reinforcements and the like, Eastwood's Internal Frame Coating does the trick nicely. The spray comes with a 24" long 180 degree spray nozzle that is fed thru any crevice (or drill your own access hole) then pulled back out while spraying the product. It gets a bit messy when it drools out of cracks that you never before noticed, so wear appropriate clothing and lay down drop cloths or run the risk of looking like a zinc chromate Jackson Pollock work of art.
