WTB - Datsun 510 Clear Front Turn Signals

Post by oi_son » 07 Aug 2013 18:39

Hi Guys

I am looking for a set of clear front turn signals for my Datsun 510. It needs to be the later model so 70-72 ones.

The lenses attached here look to be for the older model (68-69). But you get the idea of what I am after?

I am looking for a set for 70-72 if possible.

Did these come out as a full set with the backing and bulbs attached? Or were they just sold as lenses?

Please let me know what you have. i would prefer NOS if possible.

Regards
Jason

I don't know that full-clear front turn signals were ever offered from the factory on the 510.

Like the clear side marker lights, these are aftermarket. If it doesn't say Everwing on the light, it is not OEM.

But the do look very cool. Does anyone know of a source?

Yes I would really like to know where to get a pair please.. anyone.

This is another pic of those clear ones list in my first post above. Says they are made in Japan but dont see anything about Everwing from the pic. But either way these do not help me as I am after 70-72 model ones and these seem to be the earlier model type.

Any help would be really appreciated.

They may actually be for a later Datsun model and just happen to look like early 510 parts...or the aftermarket guys are getting smarter.

Aftermarket stuff has been available on eBay.

I think you're on to something there okayfine, The early 510 blinkers appear to have a much greater angle on the outside edge of the rectangle. Check it out.

Thanks two_68_510s

I purchased them. Lets see how they are when they arrive. To me they don't look right. Can anyone confirm?

Is it supposed to have the 2 seperated sections? Where the orange is usually seperated from the clear on the normal ones?

I thought that the clear set would be just 1 light in 1 section. You can see on the image above on a previous post that of the all amber light has only 1 section to it.

Jason

Clearly, a mystery! (and the curve looks weird)

I suppose we will find out when they arrive. Might take a while though.

If anyone knows of any others please let me know I may still be interested. As I am not overly confident with these.

Thanks Heaps

Actually i just looked at the sellers sold items and he has sold one of these to a guy here in Australia. I will ask him if he is happy. I have seen them in pictures of his car and it looks good. I have not had the pleasure of seeing it up close though.

I've got a set of them.
When I saw your post you were looking for some I dug mine out to see if I could get the sellers info off the box but the info wasn't there.
They would look ok from a distance but definitely a bit dodgy and brittle up close. But I think you wouldn't notice when there fitted to the car.

Those were probably meant for the sss/euro signal - with separate turn and running lights. Typically it has a white and amber section - not all clear.

Hi James

Thankyou for your reply. I understand that the original ones are amber and clear. I already have a NOS set of those. But i wanted the clear also for something different and incase i ever wanted to have a change when the car is built.

I will keep you all posted when they arrive.

Thanks whatsdoing. When they arrive i will compare them with thr NOS ones and provide some pictures.

I was just illustrating that the separation point looks to be similar - with two separate sections......
Hope they work out!
