After 37 years my trans mount needed replaced so I thought as long as I am there I would build a new trans crossmember. I never really liked the way I set it up in high school in 1979. I have a Datsun motor, trans and rear end in my 1961 Ser II Sunbeam Alpine. This weekend I built a trans crossmember that uses the Sunbeam mounting points to support the Datsun trans.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. Hell, some of the places I’ve been there weren’t even roads!

Nice, now how about the Datsun Powered Alpine. I ran a Datsun Roadster back in high school at Riverside and raced against a friend in his Sunbeam, We were terrors on the track.

Been thinking about picking up another Roadster and slipping a Isuzu turbo diesel engine and 5 speed I have here in the shop in it, for just scooting around town in. That and reliving my High School Days a little!

Thanks Toyanvil! That is a beautiful car.
Boy that brings back a lot of memories.
When I get time I'll pull out some of my old Datsun Pictures and post them up.
I was 17 when I bought my Roadster in 68.
Over time and a lot of abuse there wasn't a nut or bolt that hadn't been turned on it.
Looking at the engine pictures reminds me of my 1600 cc engine that was originally in my 66!

It eventually got a 2000 cc and 5 speed tranny, and that thing would do 145 mph.

Lats of fun.

Again, beautiful car. Makes one wonder how they ever got the small block 289 Fords in them.

Some friends in High School put a 327 in a Austin Healey 3000. That was a Corvette killer.

Awesome work on that trans mount!

I never imagined I'd find other Datsun fans on here! I had a number of 510s, a 260z, and several pickups back years ago! I just bought a '85 200sx that brings back alot of those memories!

You and any other fans should check out the forums on Ratsun.net, if you havent already!

I loved my Datsun's and have fought the urge to get another.
I'm one of the worst when it comes to collecting unique vehicles
I can't have just one of anything.
I would love to have another 66 SPL 311 so the wife and I can re live my High School Glory Days.
(I still have the original Owners Manual for my Old Fairlady!)

I got into Isuzu's in the mid 90's and now have 5 of them.
My current favorite car toy is a FWD 89 I Mark with a 1500 cc Turbo Diesel Engine and re geared 5 speed transmission.
It gets me 45 mpg if I can keep my foot out of the turbo.



Kinda crazy to pull a perfectly good 1800 FE Engine to put this in smaller heavier engine in it.


Here's a clip of the engine running right after I got it installed.


It's a fun little ride! When I was working it was my bad weather day commuter.
I also build motorcycles!
