Thinking of clearing out all Midget / Datsun stuff


I'm going to try and get rid of as much in bulk as possible, at this time I have little interest in any nickel & dime tiny part out sort of operation.

I still have 3 or 4 Datsun A15's, two 5 speeds (1 dogleg and 1 regular pattern) Some new head gaskets including one of the extra heavy duty high performance models.
One of the transmissions is in the 78 Midget and the other is currently residing in a 1980 Datsun 210.
I have titles for all the cars.

I have a complete Arkley kit including all those gold plated suspension parts and a ton of other stuff.
A white '73 Midget has a 1275 and a good 4 speed, good mechanical bits rusted body.
A fairly rust free '73 shell including doors and trunk lid

The green 78 with Bugeye front end has a 3.7 rear end and the dogleg 5 speed, side draft SU's on a Nissan A15 - this has the nearly impossible to find intake manifold.

Rusted tub of a 63 Midget with a 1098 and transmission / rear end in it

I have a Bugeye radiator with a serial number plate that reads "0001" that John Sprinzel said is "interesting".

I'd like to clear it all out and put a little money in the bank, PM me your interest.
Anyone who can take all or large part will get more serious consideration, if you can come remove stuff from my shed or my lawn even better.

For the curious yes there's a story here, I just don't want to share publicly.


Rick, we've been missing you and yes I'm curious. Could use an H89 Datsun head if you have one you could part with. Maybe a A15 crank or whole engine it I could stand the shipping.

Sorry to see you parting things out.

Hey Rick..sorry to hear you're selling everything too. I may be interested in all or part of the lot. What are you looking to get for everything?

So Sad to see you give it all up....


I still drive an MG, it's just a bigger MG...
Would like to build an Arkley but don't have enough room or money to keep going.
Maybe I'll feel differently after getting rid of some of the stuff.

I'll sort of be in your area at the end of April/beginning of May (Seattle/Lynnwood). If you haven't sold everything by then I'd love to swing by to look everything over and talk shop.

Hi Rick,
a few years ago you posted that you had picked up a Bugeye tub, and I don't remember hearing whether you've done anything with it or not; is that something you might be interested in getting rid of?
