Datsun/Nissan Interchangeable Parts for 720

Postby nicnissan » Sat Jan 23, 2010 7:12 am

Some time back on the old 720 World website there was a posting that told all the parts from Datsun and Nissan vehicles that could be used to upgrade the 720 pickup. I know that 280ZX bucket seats bolt right into the 720 because I saw that swap listed and did it to my 4x4 (very nice). Now I'm looking to recreate that list for any and all parts that can be used easily on the 720 2WD and 4x4 trucks. Can anyone suggest from experience what parts can be swapped?

You may not have one. I'm not sure when they started putting them on.

Mine is an 81, it has all the original drivetrain with 80k miles on it. It doesn't have one.

I would love to see that list.

The damper box is dumb any way. Neither of my 240sx have them due to being auto. My truck doesn't have one either. But as I recall bleeding the cltch with the damper is more annoying then if you just had a bypass.

I want to know if anyone has swapped the 720 4x4 into a 620 chassis...and if so - what's involved?

I believe the bell housings and transmissions from the late 70's Z cars will fit on the 720.

There was a guy at the local self help garage that was changing out his transmission on a 75 z car and the transmission looked like the same on on my 720 2wd.

If you're waiting for a reply from any of the members that posted in this thread, I wouldn't hold my breath. Regretfully none of them are currently active members, and have not been around for at least a year or more. With any luck maybe someone else will have the answer your looking for, but it may take some time before you get a reply.
