I really wanted to drag this home, but there is no room at the inn. So I'll point it out to the rest of you. (NMNA) said: A nice project for an ambitious car buff. Model T Frame and Front Suspension, Seats and Gas Tank. (Possibly Running Boards) Fiber Glass Fenders Street Rod Modifications - Datsun Motor & Rear End Title shows 1925. Serious inquiries only please.

I was thinking about ditching the Datsun motor and use a Zetec and a pinto 4 speed.

That's not a great car, but it's a screaming bargain.

At that price, you can't go wrong. Somebody needs to buy it and put it back on the road.

(...and if you want to chuck the datsun drivetrain, I can find a use for it. I've been threatening for quite a while to build a boattail car. Instead of doing a bugatti replica, I could then go with 1930s datsun racer)

I'd love to go look at it... for one of you.

I'm going to tell one of my buddies and see if he's interested; he mentioned a model a hot rod once... At least then I can help him play with it...

Nocones: I still have the Zetec and 4 speed. For sale if you're interested. The speedster is about an hour away from our old 'hood.

I've seen rusty piles of junk go for more than this and they don't have titles.

I've always wanted one of these and I have a connection in cheese land who would gladly go pick it up for me. Must not pick up phone...

Same here... well he's actually in Michigan... but I have a feeling he'd make the trip for something like this.

She rolled her eyes ....

My friend has a flat six Plymouth motor with the tranny attached, pedals intact and everything works.

Fenders off, boards off, flat six in, paint. I'm glad I don't have a trailer but regret sometimes she is so easy on me. Why can't you be more bitchy?
