64 NL320 pro street project

Postby OVRKIL » Wed Oct 08, 2014 7:07 pm

I am looking for parts for my pro street NL320 project, any info on where to find body parts and trim would be greatly appreciated. I am also looking for any images of a pro street NL320.

OVRKIL,

Welcome Aboard! Would love to see some pics over your little street rod NL 320.

I'm sure if post a list of some specific parts and trims needs some 320 Enthusiasts will contact you through NiCo's 320 Forum. There are quite a few of us that have more than, like 4 or 5, and might be able to help. In the mean time check eBay regularly and you might contact neonman52 as he/she or LLC seems to be selling some hard to obtain parts from a '64 320.

Here's a link to one of their items-

I'm sure you are aware that the NL and L are a little different when it come to body panels and trim from the front windscreen back. An alternative to the trim and mounting hardware is to look at MGB, MGB-GT and '60s MK II and MK III Midgets for their chrome side trim. Sorry do not know the exact measurement of the front fender, door, or rear quarter panel pieces, but I'm sure someone at Moss Motors, Victoria British, or warm beer BMC forum can square you away.

cheers

Thanks for all the info, I will post some pics as soon as I figure out how.
This is my first Datsun and can not belive the following they have, this project is really getting fun. My appraisor tells me that this truck is one of 333 released into Nort America, do you know how someone could verify that kind of info?


Thanks
Ovrkil

There were roughly a thousand NL320's in the US, so that could be accurate...

BTW, posting pics is pretty simple - Host them somewhere (such as Flickr or Photobucket), then R-click on the pics you want to post, copy the URL, and use the little picture icon above your new post to paste it into your post.
