DATSUN ROADSTER STREET BAR

#961-02

We have been using this bar since 1973, when I installed one in my own roadster; and have since sold hundreds? of them. An excellent design, that fits both high and low windshield roadsters. Main legs sit right above a strong body support bracket (part of cars's frame).Bar does not end up blocking the rear view mirror. Also designed to clear the hardtops made by Custom Hardtops (Snugtop) and Dynaplastics. These bars are shipped unboxed and the paint may need touching up, but they come in "easy-to-touchup" black.

Having a bar in a car will work with the softop but you will have to carefully work the frame over it putting it up and down. The top is as high and as wide as possible. Any less defeats the purpose of having one. It will also make it more difficult if you plan on using a top boot when your top is down. Seat travel and ability to recline can also be affected. There is a little leeway on how it is mounted on the floor, we always mount it as high as possible as the seat position is more important then anything else after the heighth of the bar.

These bars are built for heighth and do a good job with the seat situation as they are wide enough that the headrests can just clear them on the side a little bit. Tubing diameter is 2 inches.

Bars would need to be paid for with a US Post Office Money Order.

With 72 hours notice these can be picked up as well.

Please call or email. This waiver is necessary in today's litigeous society as some people believe having this bar will allow them to drive drunk and then survive going off a cliff or getting hit by a dump truck. It won't. This is not a structural roll cage. You would not be able to have a top or opening doors or a windshield with a proper roll cage. You would also need to be wearing a helmet; fire suit; and have a automatic fire suppresion system in the car. Most manufacturer's stopped calling these "roll bars" in the 80s and began using "show bars".

I have purchased many rollovers and have yet to see one of these bars affected in a negative way. I have also seen rollovers where the hardtop; although breaking in the process; was able to protect the occupants. What WILL help these bars help you; as well as the flimsy seat belt mounts and seat mounts in the roadster; is to either use progressively larger and larger washers (up to 3 inches in diameter) and/or home built reinforcement plates on the underside of the car. The edges of the washers or plates should be bent away from the floor slightly and/or buffed to reduce their sharpness. This protects the floor from tearing.


DELIVERY

Atrocious, hideous, unbelievable, unfathomable, mind blowing; as is shipping on all large objects these days.

We can usually ship these by bus to the closest depot near you for about $80; and it takes $80 to get it to the depot; so there is $160. By United Parcel Service's quote system it is about $210 to LA or Denver; $240 to the Eastern third of the country. This may change at any time.

Keep in mind that Greyhound only allows you to purchase $300 of insurance for deliveries within 600 miles; more than that distance and THERE IS NO INSURANCE OF ANY AMOUNT.

If you REALLY want it to go by bus we'd need some sort of written statement from you agreeing hold us harmless in the event of loss, damage, or delay.
