Hey zzzzed,
Your bluebird is the delux model, a couple of things give it away, the wider ribbed body moulds which are stainless steel, the stainless steel door frames,
and the stainless steel windscreen mould that sits in the rubber,
All blue bird wagons have the chrome glass rear tailgate though on the standard model it is painted metal frame with chrome strips while on the delux model the whole frame is stainless steel, just a tip dont remove the rear glass from the tailgate as i have not been able to locate a rubber to suit the glass anywhere.
also the glass is not tempered so dont drop it.......
Will check on what moulds i have and let you know. if you do find one of the moulds to suit the delux even if damaged do grab it as i know of a company that specialises in mould restoration and do a great job.
Cheers for now. :lol:

Drew, I was just curious to see what may have been done to the 312 since the last post? I am in the process getting a 63 WP312 myself and am very interested in your build. Thanks!

Hi Datsunfan,
Progress has been slow though i have done a bit of work, tailshaft. gearbox & engine are rebuilt and all back in place. the twin carburetor manifold & carburetors are fitted and look the goods.
If i want to change it back to original its an easy manifold swap.
Will be picking up the radiator this weekend. The original radiators were less than efficient so i am using the a diferent core that holds less in capacity though is more efficient.
The generator is not being refitted as i have fitted an alternator, only need to make up the adjuster bracket
and thats done.
then its just fit the radiator, flush the fuel system (electric fuel pump now fitted), connect the electrical
wiring and all systems are GO.....
will post some more photos of the engine in place as soon as i can.

Cheers all, Drew. :D
