Containment

    Recommended Posts

    No, not the current virus restrictions, but the original, genuine, Nissan boxes and assorted packaging, our new, now NOS parts came in. I haven't seen a thread on this, so..

    I love obtaining new parts, in there original boxes, something special. And the more age to a part, some of mine are probably going back to the mid 1960's, the better. And, the changes and different way Nissan wrote down the part number and item description. I have no idea how the different types of packaging, labels and fonts fit into any kind or historical "pathway" of development, I just like them! I don't think this should just stay within the era of the S30, as the packaging of parts spans a wider time.

    Some , may think its "weird", but its not the same getting a reproduction part just in a plastic bag. The original box can add value to the part.

    My favouite, the red white and blue Nissan boxes. Not mine, but the boxes are in very good condition. A variant, I only spotted of the red white and blue;

    Notice, only red on the ends of the packaging.

    An earlier example of a parts label, notice it is in kanji, rather than english, and the label is a different design.

    Enjoy!

    (Admin, feel free to move, but I didn't know how to catagorize this...)

    Not weird at all. Here is a 11720-E4615 Fan belt that I purchased as a spare and have kept in the car since 1979. I even have the invoice.

    Thanks CanTechZ, I bet you don't really want to use that fan belt if you get stuck. That is part of the problem, once they are used, they are gone.

    A couple of examples of "soft" Nissan packaging. The sturdy paper bag one, hand written, and without parts description. And a Datsun plastic bag.

    Hi Ian,

    Great thread idea! 

    Attached are a few examples of "containment", including one from "Pardat", who sold authorized Nissan parts through UK dealerships.  I like the red, white and blue boxes the most.

    Yes, I'm definitely won't be using that fan belt. Also here is a picture of two 74932-E4100 scuff plates that I have, one is from 1984 and the other from 2016. I found it interesting that the description changed so much. In 1984 it was "PLATE-SCUF" as is in the parts book, the part from 2016 reads "HOOK ASSY-ROPE"
