I have decided to keep the body original (the coment's on the gapping and placement made sense to me). Where might I find that in gauge voltage regulator? If you noticed in the picture it has a Tach and the Clock (both work and are accurate), also it is a 5spd - all this without a radio! It has a stock plug where the radio belongs. Any body have a stock AM/FM (stereo if possible) along with the stock face plate and knobs they wouldn't mind parting with. I agree on the bumpers I much prefer the Euro stock! Any one have a set available and how much with shipping cost to Washington state, USA.

Dunno about the B210, but in B110 (Datsun 1200) the instrument VR is inside the cluster gauge, bolted to the back of the Temperature gauge.

Factory 5-speed B210 should have a 5-speed emblem.

Plus the engine compartment plate will read 65HP:

80HP engine was standard, while fuel economy champion models (FU) had a 65HP engine and a 5-speed. Can you say 48 mpg?

that coupe is in very nice condition, great when you can find them like that.
are you going to attempt the bodywork yourself or have it done professionally?

i take it the 85hp is the a14 and the 65hp is the a12.

In USA we only got the "H" B210 -- all of them had A14s. Well except the first year they had the A13 tall-block.

80HP = A14 Oval Port engine
65HP = A14 FU engine

This is a factory 5 (picture), with the emblem and all other indications to prove such. Also it has 77,000 miles and it is 32 years old and I still achieved 45 mpg at 60 mph as I brought it home - this before replacing the air filter (needed bad) and replaceing all the vacuum lines that were rotted away. I suspect when I am done bringing the engine to the point of my joy it will probably pull down 50! On a side note my first B210 back 30 years ago was a factory 5 and it also produced 78 ponies according to the name plate. I think that in the USA or perhaps just in 77 that it came with the stronger engine. I need to point out to my surprise that it is a stock factory set up electronic ignition. According to the owners manual only available with the configuration of 5spd - catalytic converter - non-california all other USA models of 77 recieved a point system.

To answer the question on the body work, we (wife and I) looked at a few welding machines yeserday. We plan to pick one up and practice on a few small projects and then tackle the car. On a side note, we have the equipment to paint it and this we have done with other cars (no practice needed). To make a long story short we plan to do all the work (exterior - interior -mechanical - upgrades) ourselves. I do have some welding experience and yes my wife supports me in my foolish and probably expensive endeavor - oh but what fun it is!
