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.

How Many Times Do You Check This Forum ?

Latest Posts - Mon, 04/06/2018 - 14:41
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.

Cheers

Hs30-00127

Latest Posts - Mon, 04/06/2018 - 06:49

Hey team!

I'm the proud owner of shell HS30-00127 and when I say shell I mean what's in pic is all I've got. No engine or trans either. It's pretty straight and rust free but someone has hacked at a few areas like the transmission tunnel but nothing that can't be fixed.

 

Fairlady Z.jpg

 

I've been into Datsuns and JDM in general since flicking through Hot4s mags with my mates as a young bloke. It was always the 1600s that caught my eye so after driving a Mk1 two door Escort for a while (still got that one) and a '79 Chrysler Sigma wagon I found my first 1600 which I still have (as a shell at the moment). I have another parts 1600 and then my pride and joy an SR20DET 1600. I also have an M35 Stagea VQ25DET family hauler. I had a Z31 Turbo which I stripped for the 5 stud hubs but this is really my first Z. I have my wife to thank for finding this one (and letting me buy it) after she overheard a conversation between two work colleagues about "some Datsun shell in a shed somewhere".

Hoping from this club to get lots of ideas, advice, opinions and parts! I've got a few ideas going around in my head at the moment which don't involve an L series (don't kick me out already). If I had the matching engine, or could even find out what the original engine number was, I'd probably keep it L series. Instead, because I love orange and satin black I'm thinking a Fairlady Z432R "tribute", RB25/30 with triple carbs but I'm sure I'll change my mind along the way.

 

Cheers!

Classic car bubble

Read and discuss. I think this that Michael is on the money here and to be honestly i don't really care what my zed is worth (apart from insurance value) as mine's a keeper.
Porsche is definitely a marque that is supremely over valued currently and as stated about to be joined by the "bad ferraris".
I want lower classic car values so i can afford to own more of them!
