    1978 Datsun 330

    Hey all,

    Some of you know me & my car from other forums but, for those that dont, here is my project:

    1978 Datsun 330 (280C)

    Work so far:

    Welding all done (new sills, door bottoms, nosed & decked)
    L28E Transplant (from a 280ZX)
    Temporary paint in purple (going black sometime soon)
    'Interesting' shifter
    Grille 'reworked'
    Lowered 5" up front, 3" at the rear

    How it arrived:

























    How it is now:





























    Like I said, eventually it'll be black, and also - when money allows - it's gonna get airbags and a new interior. Also the 'VIP' badge I tried to use to hide a paint blemish has got to go as soon as I remember to pull it off. Also, gonna powdercoat the steels black and run spidercaps & trim rings.

    For now though Im just rolling like this.

    Hope you like

    Wow.. Yakuza, indeed. That car looks like it belongs in a Japanese car chase video. Awesome.

    my thought exactly especially when we got cadillacs in that era that a family of 8 can fit in and still have leg room.... lol (bad marketing from japan :x )

    I concur, cedric>maxima.

    Also, it blows my mind how awesome that shifter is, I wasent expecting that at all. Is it a mock-up or is it a actual sword with an edge and everything?
