    It's packed so I  can't check........is there a California Sunshine version of the Datsun.......something like that....

    I'm not a gun nut.....didn't own one until I moved to this VERY rural area and someone in power hinted about dis-arming.....
    But the fact 99.9% of folks here that can legally own a gun DO does not bother me.....
    There was a story on the news about a rural Texas town that had 3 times more guns than people and they had no crime.....but almost required kids get a info / safety gun course.  Kinda the way it works  here.

    My very first car was a Darsun PL411 sedan......ugly as heck and just as tough. You can tell Datsun bought a Falcon to study!!!
    Love more Datsun models.

    SAD.....that's what

    Correct......
    But....it's the same chassis used for the showroom version....same for interior bucket....just substitute showroom side panels, stock seats and dash.  Check the chrome tree.....stock grille along with racing version on white/gray tree.
    The thinking is a 3 n 1 kit COULD be a possibility by opening gates and very small amount of engraving / repair.  Include both interior side panels, seats etc. Engine block same....just include both stock and race accessories.  A wild dream for sure....but thinking outside the box ( pun intended) may be what is needed today.

    My Matador is a 30K original miles from NC....so it had an easy life compared to a car from up North!!!
    I drove a 1964 Bug in college......freeze in Winter.....fry in Summer!!! it was about 10 different colors....no bumpers....each corner dinged up good.....but for next to nothing it got me through!!!  It would walk out a plug now and then.....points came apart once.....fixed them w/o tools on the side of the road in the dark!!
    Brakes failed and I still drove it for a week until pay day using the E brake,,,,,,which worked well!!
    My kids had great cars when they hit school......
    SORRY for the hijack!

    I still don't know!!!!!!

    The funny things is..........My basically stock Matador DRIVES better than my Javelin or Mustang.......
    It has HUGE disk brakes, big sway bars front AND rear....it's just a more modern design and drives like a dream....way ahead for 1974......you would never guess from looking at her!!!! Thx
