1978 DL Wagon FWD JDM style Project

Recommended Posts

This is my first post in here and I've been stoked on all the stuff I've learned from the forums. You may be opposed to what I'm doing, which everyone has their right to an opinion but for those that are interested, this is what I'm up to. I'm restoring and styling the car a little more like the common JDM styled datsun 510 and classics along the same line. It will be a bit lower (not slammed) have different wheels that are wider and some other odds and ends to make it a little sportier.

 

Here's some photos of what it looked like when I bought it and the progress I've made thus far.

I doubt you'll find much resistance around this forum, unless you start chopping it up.  Looks nice, I'm excited to watch your progress since I have a '75 awaiting its turn in the shop...

I'm not far behind you with a '77 Front Wheel Drive Wag.

 

(FINALLY looks like I'm getting an engine! YAY!)

Keeping the old ones on the road and going is more important than the style you use to do it!

 

Good luck with you modifications.

IT WORKED! Here's the progress thus far with my wagon. I'm really pleased with the way it's progressed thus far.

That looks great, imo I would get a skinnier front bumper instead of no bumper but it looks great. Take some pics without so much glare from the sun and I'll make it one of my desktops at work!

Commie , shame on you. Look over an old brochure online. The entire line has the hood louvers and wagons have the rear "gills".

Stage 2 1977 thru 79

 

Deduct three points. No gold star today! Lol

This car, sadly, is actually for sale now. I'm asking $7,500 obo. I know that you may think the number is high but I'm not in a hurry to sell it. So, make me an offer and the worst I can say is no.

 

Here's the listing for it with additional photos and information. Located in Salt Lake City, UT

Nice pictures! Now I know why people want the 4WD front valences, they have much smaller bumper mount cutouts.

Wanna trade for a CRX? Rust free, doesnt leak a drop of oil, daily driven.
