  1. More NOS badges all the way from Cairo ... yes that’s a NAP badge .. look it up hahaha.
  2. Well jeez long time no update, then again it’s been in storage for a very long time. Just a quick update on my phone until I get around to a proper update on a P.C. anyway it’s now finally registered and on the road. The electric window door cards finally got sent over from the U.K (2.5 years later!) so will get the windows hooked up soon. Oh yeah found out the air con still works and is cold. Bonus. Also found its original hubbies which are mint as to be expected with the condition of the rest of the, polished them up.. rad.
  3. Picking this up in a week, essentially 1 owner; under 100km; plastic taken off door cards a year ago; fitted sheepskins have never been off; rear carpet always covered deceased owner owned a Toyota dealership, which religiously services it every 6 months with full log books. YFactory Air; steer; 7 seater. It’s a honey. Down in Melbourne so a 20 hour road trip coming up. Tried to buy a year ago but grandson selling it was a mess to deal with. This time around his uncle much more reasonable. Too mint to stuff around with too much. prefer the other style grille that i have; but a nice summer cruiser.
  4. Have seen this done with a Jag; can’t find the pic now but still looked kinda weird. The other thing is due to parking constraints in my underground parking, it needs to be as short but practical as possible. Yep most look crap. Some not too bad. But I think it really comes down to how you finish off the front. I’m not having the side doors functional, just the side door windows and the factory electric side cargo window. Really it’s about not wasting a couple of awesome but fucked wagons, and also it will be mega handy. Also as the floor of the wagons are totally flat with the seats folded, it’s a pretty ideal model to this with. Most of the converts i’ve seen online have been pretty bloody ugly, as in wholly shit ugly. Some of the most successful ones i’ve seen are Mini’s and landrovers, and check out the awesome Civic trailer. still hoping I can get one good 230 wagon outta this too; but camper trailer first.
  5. also keen to hear from others who have gone down this road. Especially owner of this 30’ corolla and trailer.. like the idea of a door opening like this to create a platform and to use the back bench seat, just not sure how water proof it would be, or how much harder to make it seal properly. That doesn’t look to water proof to me.
  6. There are some crappy looking conversions kicking around.. B pillar cut with a maybe half a foot for moulding the front of the trailer and or door would look good and still give over 2metres internal floor space.
  7. So originally I bought the stoved 230 wags for the rear dickie seat. This required sawing the car in two, hauling it back to a mates workshop and getting it into the air alongside my 330 wagon to get the right fit for the dickie tray into the 330... We were just about in the act of cutting the green stoved 260c in half; when old mate Who was assisting me in chopping the bitch in two exclaimed “Why not make a half car camper!” the makita was put down and things quickly went the way of a half wagon/camper (half 230 would that make it a 115 260c?). these things have plenty of room, totally flat floor, makes sense, and would look the part behind my 330. if i’m lucky the one in Victoria is okish; then I might be also able to come away with one good wagon as well as a trailer, as well as sort out some parts for some other antipodean 230 wagon purveyors.
  8. Discussion thread here; ideas welcome. So things have snowballed. have sourced 4 H230 260c’s from different parts of the country in as many days. one is rust fcked badly. Three on the tree blue interior.8 seater. Second one is rusty plus hit a tree 6 years ago (rail twisted). Paddock special; dirty but pretty mint black interior 3 on the tree. 8 seater. 3rd one is so-so rust victim (so-so for a datsun is “oh no!” for other marques ) driven where it sits 5 years ago. 3 on the tree 8 seater blue interior. 4th was always going to be a pipe dream; was in WA (though mate in shipping can get cars to me at a good discount).the owner thinks it was worth a few k, and is going to get around to fixing one day et cetera et cetera. On top of all this it’s rust looked fkn ferocious and other WA rust hunters woulda been all over it. ended up cutting a deal on 3, one in rural nsw, one in rural victoria, one in the outskirts of Sydney. have a mate out near Bathurst where I can store them and to see if i can make one good one outta three basket cases.
