Here's a nice article on one, possibly also a conversion.

http://www.motoringme.com/features/c110 ... line-gt-r/

Were there a few sold in Holland as LHD?

Other than the dash, the rest seems straightforward to retrofit, just not cheap.

would be the same as any rhd to lhd swap: dash would be the most difficult part to find.

steering rack, heater parts, piece of wiring loom, centre console, dash, wipers and the top part of the firewall that holds the wipers and their motor.

only a few were sold in germany and netherlands an norway or so. most of them that survived are in Dubai already..

I've swapped an Nissan S14 from rhd to lhd once and it is a hell of a lot of work!

Try Belgium... and if all fails, use fiberglass to make a new dash :)

Was there a C10/C110 released in LHD? Or would you be using other datsun racks/dashboards to get it to fit?

I heard there is a stash of 240Ks and 2400GTs somewhere in Europe that this one guy is hoarding....lots of spare parts too!!! "Don't ask where and who this person is" from another forum that I read.

Do you like doing some investigting work? I heard Portugal and Belgium is a nice place to visit. If you have the $$$, it will be best to just do a custom fiberglass dash. The only issue is you have to probably cut the original into 4 parts to rearrange before making the mold.

I can fabricate a new dash, shift electrics etc. The main area I would like some assistance with is the steering.

Happy holidays

steering is easy, just use steeringparts from another datsun. does it use a rack or the pitman arm stuff?

several other datsuns that use arms and box, 510, 610, 710 as far as i know. You're in the UK right? call Datman Will and ask him if he has some spares for you.

I was referring tot the C10 model, i have seen lots of old pictures of c110's in two door and lhd, but now there all gone. and not just since a few years, Dubai is importing them for more than 15 or 20 years already.
