    Datsun 1200 ute X R35 GTR

    So after many attempts of doing things, I am finally in the area in ability and equipment where I can build this to in my mind a level that is required for something so stupid.

    It took me a few years but I have sourced a clean straight and rust free datsun 1200 ute shell, with pretty much all the parts there, most that I will not need. Originally I was going to use a 30/26, power glide combo with the 4wd, I even cut and shut a GTR sump to move the diff forward and move the whole engine back about 160mm or so. I measured everything and it would fit, I mean physically the engine would not poke out the bonnet and the diff was in the correct location in relation to the front wheel arches etc.

    Anyway then I was cruising pickles last Wednesday and there were 2 crashed 35 gtrs, so I bid on them, first one was a bit too expensive so I got the 2nd one. I am getting it shipped from NSW, land of the uleh it seems.

    So to cut a long story short I had to pick wheel sizes, I think I have gone 18x10 and now I bought susprog 3d, so if anyone is a bit of an expert I will give that a crack and see where I can get some suspension points sorted out. From there I will model the entire car. At this point I think it is foolish for me to even think that I would have the time to physically build the car, I think I will get all the parts CNC machined in the workshop, then I will create a chassis jib much like those ones you see for the offroad cars where they use laser cut steel plates everywhere as jigs for all the tubes and I will pay someone to do the bulk of the chassis work.

    anyway this is where I am up to, I would say updates are slow as i worked an average of about 71 hours a week last year. But we will see how we go.

                  About 32k once you pay all the charges, the other went for 39k

                  I'm hoping it is just a wrap cos it is matte. Also come with Nismo option chain with cross on rear vision mirror so we will see if it is still there when it gets to Adelaide.

                    32k seems reasonable. is it running & rolling? driveable on & off the truck?

                      Fuck knows looks like it had some sort of fire around where the battery is so doesn't start but seems no crash visible from the photos, looks either the head light or battery went up

                      That's why it is unknown condition, for me I would hope motor isn't blown or something but if it is I'll pull it down and scan the block anyways.

                        Whoa. Serious car.

                        I'm so glad those auctions are now online.

                        I remember walking through the 8 metal detectors to get in and still felt intimidated.
