Current customer rating:(2.15) based on 279 votes
This is a very nicely updated Datsun 1600. It has been fitted with an engine from a 240SX (KA24). 2. 4 litre with 5 speed. Wiring harness is all new (from "vintage wire") Has a Nissan ECU (computer). This car runs . shifts and drives very well ! All brake components recently replaced with all new Nissan components ( Calipers. wheel cylinders. linings. hoses). Recently restored. new two-stage paint (four coats of clear). New Panasport wheels. new Yokohama tires. I must admit after spending many years building these cars stock. it sure is nice to have one that requires no choke. uses regular gas. and gets better mileage than a two litre! The motor is from a '95 240SX and is from a wreck that had very few miles. The total having less than 40K! New "Autometer" gauges. Now showing : 9. 62 miles since restoration '67 2000's are rare. and . no I would never "update" a real one. But . as a driver (which is kinda the point) I love this setup! It has so much torque. just run it up to 3. 00 rpm's most of the time. Fifth gear is really overdrive . just the way it should be! If done from scratch it would cost at least $40. 00. I know quite a bit of the history on this car. It was owned by a good friend (Herb Petty) who lives near me (In Modesto). We took a trip to Denver about 5 years ago. I drove my '67 2000 and got 25 MPG. which is damn good considering we were going around 80 mph out highway 50! Herb was getting 33 to 35 mpg! That was enough to convince me that this conversion business is a very good idea. The fuel economy thing is not so much as being all about the $4. 00 per gallon as it is the annoyance of filling up more often. With a ten gallon capacity it is nicer to stay out on the road if you are travelling a bit. On May-20-13 at 12:49:58 PDT. seller added the following information:
"Vintage wire" should read "painless wiring". After Herb Petty in Modesto: Herb sold it to a friend of his who patterned it after Herb's car.
