There is always the toyota 5 spd conversion... more butchery involved.. but better ratios.. Dellow in Sydney Australia makes the "kit"...I use that word loosely coz it's really just a bellhousing.
Not as straightforward a job as the datsun... but if you can be bothered, it's a nice drive and you only ever need to use the clutch for standing starts!
still plenty of toyota 5 speeds too...even though they go into just about anything over here... V8 guys go for the steel Supra box, 6 & 4 bangers go for the Celica & T-18 Corolla alloy boxes.
the toyota overdrive is .86:1 compared to the datsuns .82:1, but the ratios from 1 - 3 are better sports car ratios than the datsuns.
