Early Girl Bingo - With Photos

Latest Posts - Tue, 05/06/2018 - 17:30

I recently posted this on George's build thread (sorry George).
http://www.classiczcars.com/topic/48409-hs30-00019/?p=474898

But it got me thinking about trying to get photos of the early 240z's to see where they are at and what shape they might be in. I've included a collection of VIN's I've collected from various threads and sources, some of these cars I've seen for myself, but others I haven't.

The ultimate goal would be to get a collection of photos of early HS30 cars and send them to Nostalgic Hero magazine in Japan, they could do a feature on early cars in Australia and I'm sure there would be quite a bit of interest globally and locally also.

Anyway as I get photos I'll add them to the first post here.. If you have anything to contribute or information to add please do! If you know a car has deceased please also let us know.

This isn't designed to replace the WA Z Car register, rather give a pictorial view of these cars.

South African Press / Demo car that is still in South Africa.  It is in pristine condition and until recently lay in a Nissan "dead house" before being bought by a well known collector.  I've been trying to negotiate to buy the car but he is adamant that he will never sell.  Apparently Nissan Japan have offered to buy the car back from him.

Exterior colour: 115 Blue
Interior colour: Black
Engine Number: L24-017870
I bought the car from Sports Car Centre in NSW in about 2008 who bought the car from Warren(All Z Parts) who bought the car from Walter Fath. The car was about 80% complete rolling shell. However most of the bolt on components that make it an early girl had been sold off by Warren. No engine, gearbox or diff came with the car. The car was going to be turned into a race car by the guys at Sports Car Centre but had a change of heart and decided to build up a Mazda MX5 for a one make racing series. The 240z however came with a cut up 260z 2 seater with most parts. I dragged all this back to SA with 3 mates in 3 separate cars with car trailers. After about 3 years of contemplating what to do with the car I decided to sell the shell as there was a lot of work required to restore it and it didn’t have the original engine. I put it up on ebay and sold the car back to a bloke in NSW who had an accident in his race car and wanted to re-shell his race car. That is the last I have seen or heard of it.

The chassis rails were completely shot as air con had been fitted and a hole had been bored in the floor to allow the condensation to drip into the LH chassis rail. The RH one wasn't much better, as was the rest of the car. Wisdom in hindsight - I should have tried harder to save 187.[/size]

Current owner also has HS30 00868

Spotted this car on the back of a car carrier on its way to Grand Auto wreckers(Datsun/Nissan Wrecker) on new year’s eve 2003 which was near my place at the time. I rang Anthony the 1st working day back in the new year and struck a deal to buy it (I have known Anthony the owner of Grand Auto Wreckers a long time). It sat in my shed in a very sad state, see pictures, for about 7 years until I had purchased all the parts to restore it to its current completed condition. The car was mostly complete with a matching number engine. I started the restoration in 2010 and was completed for the 2013 Nissan/Datsun nationals at Phillip Island. The car took out 2 awards and they were the best car 1970 to 1979 and  outright car of the event(Robert Shannon award). There are some finished shots of it on pg18 on the 2013 Nissan Nationals thread under Events.

Details here.
 
Car was purchased by member Jeff43 (owner of HS30 00134), who subsequently sold it to another member Lukep240Z.
 

Jeff43 - I got this car as a bare shell from Mossy in mid 2011. I took the front left inner guard and radiator support sections of it for my car (134) and then sold the rest of the shell to a guy from Victoria (Lukep240Z

). He was planning to use that shell and take the bits he required to save it from a very rusty car that he already had. Plenty of people wanted the roof off it and that would have been a death sentence for it I would have thought. I have added 2 pics of HS30 00288 to my gallery. A few bits like the radiator support panel from this car went to Ledge to help on George's HS30 00019 car as well.

More photos (link here) - 907 Green was the original colour.
Update: Car is now owned by member Stavros240

I bought it off Damian Pearce in 2006, a budding motoring writer in Adelaide. He had tracked it a few times, but had lost interest i think. He had quite a bit of rust fixed in the dog legs, sills and lower front fenders. Unfortunately he chose to have the fixed sections sprayed in a darker green than the original 907, so the bottom half of the car is dark green and the top is 907. The car is now sitting in my garage half stripped.

It has undergone a full restoration about 6 years ago. The car still has the 71A Gearbox, only alteration to original was the head and paint (changed to Vitamin C). It now has an E88 head because it was in better shape than the E31. [/size]I had to use a couple of other 240Zs as donor cars as parts to build mine.[/size]

James: HS30 00352 was imported into NZ from Aussie in 1974 or 76, can't remember and I have the original MZ rego documents somewhere. 

Matching numbers with a build date of 12/70 we think going by other L24 block numbers close to this one. 

Hand throttle, solid B pillar, mystery dash button hole, chrome coat holders, vented hatch, rear deck is period Swiss cheese but hatch covers have been retrofitted. Will come in handy for the Jack and tools. No old tool covers behind the seats now but mounting points still there. Early 5 speed ( with a complete spare), 2 x E31 heads (modified E88 fitted). 

Car is now painted. Upholstery next week. Triple Mukuni 44's I got for it are too big for the L24 so a new set of Weber 40's are soon to be ordered. 
Photos to come in future...

Current Owner (NickF) words.
 
Matching numbers car.
 
I got the car mid 1997 with the intension of tiding it up. The PO used it as a daily driver it came without plates so I put it in the shed then nothing.
Been sitting there for nearly twenty years. I've never driven it! Needs paint and seats recovered a little panel rust?? don't have any badges.
 
Dash needs repairing engine needs freshen up. Most of the rust has been previously repaired, looks OK
It has a Fairlady grille, chromed rim headlight covers and 6/6.5x14 Watanabes.
 
Sounds too easy should have done it years ago.

Info from Stavros.



I bought her off a bloke in Port Melbourne in 1995...not sure how long he owned her for, but the car had spent some of it's life in East Gippsland I think, as the 71A box which was in it must have been replaced or re-built, as it had 'Bairnsdale' written on it. It also looked as if the car spent much time on dirt roads, judging by the volumes of dust on the underbody. It also had one of those 'Mountain Cattlemen care for the high country' stickers on the front bumper, which I promptly removed!

At some stage before my time with her, she was re-sprayed 905 red, but was originally 907 Green. She originally had the optional front and rear spoilers, but the front one had long gone by the time I bought her, and I removed the rear. Also had 5 slot Samson Engineering Magnums. Unfortunately it had an un-original L24, with an E88 head and the original early carbs. The rest of the car was pretty much original except for a missing radio and new floors. It was well in need of a full resto by the time I sold her in 2002. I actually sold it to Smugley, who passed it onto Rex Carr in much the same condition in about 2005. I've tried to search for her over the years on the net, but haven't been able to find any trace...

Gav240z: I recall seeing this car hanging from the roof of an S30z specialist in Melbourne (Warren used to own the place called ZWorx) in the early 2000s and it was a bare shell. I believe it may have been 920 Safari Gold originally if my memory serves correctly, at the time I was unimpressed with the colour. :). However it may have also been 918 Orange like #424 below.
 
Marc bought my 1973 240z and I believe many-a-nut-bolt and fastener were used from that car to put this 1 back together and on the road.

There won't be many stories like this to be told because it just doesn't happen. I bought my first 240Z in August, 1971 (HS30 00741). I had to sell it in 1976 unfortunately. Several years ago I wanted to revisit that 240Z experience of so many years ago. The first thing I did was to check on the registration (NSW Australia) of the car. I found that the original registration of the 1971 car was "available" - meaning that my original car was probably beer cans.

The original registration was BBQ-240. I reserved it right there and it is now the only connection with my current 1973 Fairlady 240Z (HS30 103407)purchased in 2003. 

 
The 1973 Fairlady 240Z-L mentioned in the quote above was recently sold on CarSales.com.au - See post.

Inquired how he could purchase the car and I was told to apply to the local council to buy it. Managed to buy a complete matching numbers car for $200(the cost of the tow fee). This car since 11/2014 has been at a restoration shop for a complete panel and paint job to the same standard of chassis 254.

I have a 240z over here imported from Au in 1972 Number HS30 01640. It was made in Sept 71
 
It does not have the "cruise control feature" so it must have just missed out. It is a matching numbers car and was met brown with the butterscotch colour interior. It was totally stripped down to the bare shell and had no expense spared, every last nut and bolt resto done over 3.5 years. It would have been cheaper to buy a Porsche/Ferrari. It had a CB radio installed in it in Oz as that seemed to be a trend in the 70s and it had huge sun visors that looked like blocks of wood. It looks nothing like it did when I got it so it is now a very different car. I have not done any mods that can't be taken back to original except for the paint colour. It is a manual 5spd. It is fitted with the later style console with only the single choke lever.

Fuel Filler Area Profile (2 Seater Vs 2+2)

Latest Posts - Tue, 05/06/2018 - 15:24

Hey Guys,

 

This question probably got lost in amongst the other stuff going on in this thread.

 

Q. Is the profile of the lower half of a 2+2 1/4 panel the same as a 2 seater in the fuel filler area?

 

260z 2+2

586319592.jpg

 

I am guessing they are the same profile, but not 100% sure?

 

Here is the area on my 240z I'm wanting to repair. I could probably fabricate it, but an off cut will be much easier.

Trouble Priming Fuel Pump After Tank Out

Latest Posts - Tue, 05/06/2018 - 15:10
Getting close to getting my 76 260z 2+2 on the road, but just having a problem priming the fuel.
When I got the car it had been sitting for a few years, so I drained the tank and filled with fresh. I got the pump primed and all was good, but it was a pain and took a good 20 minutes.
The fuel was quite dirty so I drained again and primed with fresh again, and it was still painful.
The engine ran fine etc.
After a bit more investigation I found that the tank was quite rusty inside, so I removed the tank and fixed using the KBS tank sealer.
Now I have filled it with 40L of fuel and can't get it primed.
This car only has what appears to be the original type electric fuel pump and no mechanical pump. The electric pump has been wired to run whenever the ignition is on.
I have tried the following:

Both fuel lines disconnected from the carbs and placed into a container so I can see the fuel flow.

Fitted new fuel filter just before the pump and confimed that fuel is flowing out of the filter when the line is disconnected, so no blockage from the tank or filter.

Sucked fuel from both fuel lines that connect to the carbs.

Jacked up the rear of the car.

Still not getting any fuel flow from the pump when switched on. I understand that it could be the pump, but it sounds fine and would be unlikely seeing as the car has not been used since it was tested recently.

The thing that concerns me is how can the pump not be primed if I have sucked fuel at the carb ends, or can it be sucked from the return without realizing?

Any ideas would be great.

Bride Seats, H/lamp Upgrade, Bullet Mirrors

Classifieds - Tue, 05/06/2018 - 13:27

Even though I sold both my Zeds some time ago I still have some parts that are left over and therefore surplus to my needs at this stage. I'm open to offers, yes I have a figure in mind but would like to see what people might think they're worth as I have been out of the scene for a while and prices do fluctuate.

 

The seats as far as I know, and as I was told when I bought them, are genuine Bride fixed back race f/g seats, I just barely get in them so would suit someone with a small to medium build frame if comfort is important.15226462_10154141214295784_206487886_n.jpg 15281077_10154141215805784_447980019_n.jpg

Wanting To Swap My 240Z

Classifieds - Mon, 04/06/2018 - 19:28

So, to keep things short, i'm wondering if there are any 240z owners who would be interested to make a swap.

 

I own a 1973 240z, HS30-103061, with the matching numbers L24. Its a very solid car, and has been my daily driver for about 4-5 years now. I have never found any rust and the body and chassis are in great condition. Paint is very nice too, although its not a restored car. The previous owner mentioned he repainted it approx 10 years ago at the time of purchase, so that would make the paint about 15 years old and it still looks great. The inside of the boot and the floors were not painted however, and seem to be showing what appears to be the original white coat of paint. This is only visible when the carpets are removed and the boot and floors are both very honest and rust free. Mechanically, the car drives very well, although the cam should be replaced as some of the lobes are worn however I just haven't got around to it. Diff is a 3.9 R180 and the gearbox is the close ratio 71B with 2.9 first. I checked the ratios prior to installing about 3.5 years ago. The car was originally an auto and I have all of the original auto trans parts to go with the car if someone really fancied. Overall this is a great car to drive and extremely reliable.

 

To be honest, what i'm looking for is another 240z which has already had a couple of the 'jdm racer' style mods to it.. I like the look of the Z's with the wider wheels, coilovers, rear and front lip, maybe flares etc, L28 fitted and so on. However i'm a bit (very) soft and just can't bring myself to modify my car in that way. I'm looking to make a swap for a car which is of comparable condition and something that drives currently. If you might be interested, let me know. My car is located in Brisbane.

In Search Of My Mums Old 260Z 2+2

Latest Posts - Mon, 04/06/2018 - 17:32
Hi everyone, I'm chasing a particular 260z and hoping someone can help.

My story, mum had a deep red 260z 2+2, black interior, manual, when I was kid, shes long gone now and I've always had a love for the z and keen to buy one, figured I'd try first to find hers,

I tracked down the mechanic we sold it to 20 years ago John panlock in wodonga, he resprayed it same color and rebuilt engine, from there it was sold to mick boyd in wodonga who then sold it to Michael Breen in stanley who put in a new diff and box, from there its was sold some 5 or 6 years ago to lavington, a busines owner on urana rd apparently. From there I loose track of it, a local enthusiast mentioned it may have headed to adelaide around this time.

If you know of anyone who rings a bell let me know, as would be good to be reunited.

The Z31 Project - Race Car

Latest Posts - Mon, 04/06/2018 - 17:31

Pics are always good so below are some taken with the engine and transmission still in which show the huge amount of space for big tyres in the wheel wells. Those are the race Hoosiers off the 280 which bolt straight up with no clearance problems, F 9" rims, R 9.5". I'm bloody rapt, so much space for bigger wheels and tyres.

 

DSCN0300.JPG DSCN0301.JPG DSCN0302.JPG DSCN0303.JPG

 

The project itself should start next week with filling in the T top openings and adding some structural bracing across the top of the door openings.

 

Seeing that it's a turbo model the brakes look like they have Z32 rotors, just need some decent calipers. One thing I've learnt is that suitable brake pads are very important, proper race ones will withstand extreme temperatures and actually brake much better. Having stock rotors means that they are not expensive to replace too. The rear axles are second generation CV jointed and for the R200 diff a reasonably priced Quaife LSD centre is available. Keeping all the stock type suspension, the rear will be interesting, I have some fairly dramatic mods in mind to get the semi trailing arm setup working satisfactorily

 

So the project is going to be stock based except for the engine and auto trans.

I think its become one of those things when you get home, pour a glass of single malt, sit on the couch and get onto this site and just read. Before you know it you have downed three neat Macallan 18 glasses and still going through this fourm not able to get up.

Im curious to know how many times in the day do you get on this site and look things up, even when you dont need to check anything??

I think I'm on 2 or 3 times a day excluding recieving thread notifications. Not sure if Gavin can get user statistics or not.
