Thanks its a fun car to drive.  I make that trip four times a week. The car is a early 260 vin#2100 with factory AC makes it a little nicer to drive.

@zspert

Could you be so kind as to take more pictures of the plastic substitute for the radio from all angles?    I probably will never get one but I would like to make a "reasonable facsimile" from junk yard parts.

 

Thanks!

OK - now you have to tell us how this all came about. How does one accumulate all that? - that's the question I have ever time I watch "American Pickers". LOL  I know how I wound up with a bunch of NOS parts - every time I needed a part for a 240Z, I'd order 2 or 3 because the cost of shipping was usually more than the cost of the part. So I'd order 2 or 3 so I wouldn't have to pay the shipping costs again later.

I have one of the 'Radio Delete' trays too, and have sometimes heard them called a 'Sunglasses Tray' in Japan. It seems to work as well for that purpose as any other:

Carl, I ended up with my stash of Holy Grail parts through pure serendipity. For the past 30 or so years I've kept in touch with Nissan/Datsun parts availability through careful tea reading combined with help from the guys at my local dealer with whom I've had a relationship for almost 40 years.
