Hunt for datsun spares
THE best sources of parts for older vehicles such as yours, particularly those that were quite rare when new, are the car clubs. Look for a Nissan club in your area. Also scour the specialist parts magazines, because they sometimes have ads for collector car parts. Check the internet for suppliers of parts in other countries. You might find a source for parts in Japan or even the United States.
