Doh!... you're right... been so long since I've even seen one, even here in the Bay Area where there are so many foreign and exotic cars.

A few observations. Fig, why not look into the Rivergate conversion? I was under the impression they manufacture and sell their conversion kit out of Tennessee!!??

Secondly, the Datsun donors are plentiful if you know where to look. The 5 speed came in wagons, coupes, hatchbacks and sedans and there seems to be no shortage of them along the highways and byways in our neck of the woods. A friend of mine who works for Nissan (HQ in Franklin, TN) is actually doing a rebuild on a B210/Midget he picked up for almost nothing somewhere along Hwy 431 in Petersburg, TN. Also, if you know someone who lives in northern Virginia, the salvage yard Leon's in Culpeper actually has these gearboxes set aside in a separate shed. There's that many.

Finally, I seem to stumble on Merkur more than I would think down here. The fella who spread gravel for my driveway last year said he'd done multiple drop-ins and he is in the boonies of this area.

As Gerard pointed out, I believe the T9 box requires quite a bit of modification. There was a Toyota box kit at one time as well. I believe a early T50 box.
