A 73' Datsun 1200 stationwagon rusted out wrecked road car, ripped apart and rebuilt as this, it has a lightweight tube/galv sheet metal body, with original diff, suspension and steering components as well as brakes, engine and even the steering wheel. It sure is fun to drive but still quite tricky and tail happy because of its SWB layout, pretty quick too, hellova lot faster than the original car. Its great on gravel roads and in paddocks, if you wana go past 50mph you'd want to know what your doing because keeping it straight at those speeds is a challenge, that's what makes it so adrenaline pumping and it's bloody good fun. This engine has been thrashed and beaten most of its life. Previous owners (when the engine was in the car) apparently went flat-out up the road in 1st gear to try and blow it up but failed. These little Japanese engines, trully are legendary. I re-wired it up a few years ago (when I was 12) and it was built about 30-35years ago and never misses a beat, runs on stale fuel and starts every time with no choke, doesn't smoke at all except a bit of blue smoke from worn valve guide seals on start up.

My Homemade Beach Buggy With A Nissan L20B Engine

blood, sweat and lots of swearing it finaly went somewhere under its own
power. It origanaly had a Nissan L16 engine in it but it seized so i
managed to find a L20B engine with 1952cc and whacked that in only to find
that the head gasket was rooted then after i put the new gasket on I
stuffed up the valve timing and it took me ages to get it right but I got
