I recently acquired a 1968 datsun G130 of a mate. Im hoping to tidy it up and fit a vh41 or 45 and automatic and use it as a weekend cruiser.
Its badged as a super six, but i think its a special six. It has the early L23 and 3 speed column change.
My mate was using it as a daily a few years ago and it has sat for a while. Just needed a cleanup and a battery and away it went.
Unfortunatley its a bit low to pass a roadworthy inspection so i have been working on that first.
One of the rear leaf springs was flipped so i just dismantled the leaves and reset them.
The front coils have been cut so i will track down a pair of xf falcon fronts and use them
Here is a photo after doing the rears.
I have a set of these wheels also. 14x6 Im not sure what they are called but am thinking of running them, but i think i will run some 16inch wheels. I want to run some tall tyres as the roads are very poor in northern Queensland and need something that can handle a few potholes.
Im trying to track a vh45 half cut to fit. I will fit the complete engine/auto/ecu etc, and if possible the front brakes. I think i will have to convert the engine to mid sump as the datsun crossmember is a funny shape, curving forward, but the steering arm is pretty far back. All the suspension is mounted to the crossmember so maybe i can modify a torana/HQ style crossmember and suspension to run the front sump VH and also fit the steering rack off the halfcut.
If i get a chance i will attemp to fit the a/c and heater setup, perhaps with an older a/c controller
