WTF: German Datsun Violet A10 front clip for sale

During one of my late night old J-tin searches I came across a weird German ad selling the front end of an old Datsun:
Datsun Violet A10 front clip
Datsun Violet A10 front clip

I recognized it as a EU Datsun Violet front end (aka the Auster/Stanza/510/160J). I’m not sure if the German license plate actually belongs to this front end, but they are the old pre 1994 German plates issued in Fürth (Bayern) which is next to Nürnberg where the seller lives. So perhaps the front clip of his old Violet?

The funny thing is that on this picture you can actually see the holes where the JDM fender mirrors are supposed to be mounted:
Datsun Violet A10 front clip
Datsun Violet A10 front clip

I found out that those points are available on all EU Datsun Violets and only covered with a small patch.

I still remember one of my buddies from high school had a front clipping of his old Mini in the livingroom of his apartment. Back then I thought it was one of the coolest things to have in your apartment, so I bet this front clip would have been sitting in my livingroom already if I were 10 years younger and didn’t have a child running around in my house…

(In case anyone is interested I can put you in contact with the seller)
