Sounds like a nice project jason. I javed been thinking about these with a turbo sr20 for a few years. The misses has dropped the occasional line that she would like a car and I reckon one of these would be good for her, should be easy to work on.

If i went the sr20 route would the standard u20 head and gearbox sell for much?

Its a ramdom question but does rechroming cost much(bumpers etc)?

Expect to spend about $1000 per bumper to get them restored to a professional finish.

I bought a Fairlady 5 speed a year or so back for $300, thought that was cheap but then again I wouldn't have paid much more as its easy enough to adapt an L-series 5 speed to the U20. A purist may disagree on the use of the L-series box, but my car is going to be modified anyway as its missing other critical aprts that mean a concourse, dead original restoration is too hard / expensive.

U20 head, might get a bit for it ? Depends if you can find a buyer.  It won't fit on a H20 bottom end (well, it will physically, but there is much more needed to get it working - a U20 crank for instance) so it is a limitied market. U20 crank is longer than H20, and has different number of flywheel boltholes.

Stainless steel repro bumpers can be had from Harrington http://www.groupharr...er-bumpers.html.

I'm one of the silly ones that has to stick to a U20 engine in the Historic race car, so, if anyone hears of, or knows of engines either complete or in pieces, please let me know via pm on here.

Rules say I have to run it, and most who convert go to FJ, L or SR, or a more common but cheaper "period" style a H20 from an Urvan or a old Datsun forklift.
Thanks lads!
