#741
I was going though an old hard drive and found a number of images including some of #741
I remember looking at this car about 15 + years ago going by the dates on the images on a large country type property in the outer east of Melbourne .
The owner had been "given" the car as a spare shell and was asking $6k for it at the time .
It was pretty much a striped shell with a roll cage , seam welded and rose jointed suspension etc. No drive train , interior , wiring loom , lights or bumpers .
Not sure if it ever sold or if it's still sitting in the old barn !

Cheers Doug

Only photos you've got? The car was recorded on the first page of this thread, original owner tried to find it with no luck. Thought it was crushed. Hopefully it's still out there though! Those photos seem to indicate it was solid enough. Shame about the holes cut in the door shell.

Hi smugley,

 

The car is still alive it's at my place. No idea how it got down here. It looks exactly the same except it has deteriorated somewhat as it had been sitting outside without cover for about 10 years. It now needs sills, rear of floor replaced and quite a bit of work on the doors. If it had of been looked after it would have been any easy resto.

 

Thanks for the history. I was looking at the photos and thought that roll cage mounts on the roof just like mine and the floor mounts are the same too, just my car is more rusty in the floor, weird...... then it clicked that it was a younger version of my car.

 

Only photos you've got? The car was recorded on the first page of this thread, original owner tried to find it with no luck. Thought it was crushed. Hopefully it's still out there though! Those photos seem to indicate it was solid enough. Shame about the holes cut in the door shell.

 

I have spent the last two weeks on the welder fixing holes in the doors and it wasn't these ones :(

 

I had mistakenly listed mine as 761 when it was 741.Originally orange.

 

The original owner might be quite sad if he saw the state of it now, but at least it's still alive.

Well now you know who the original owner was (JackWarnock), that's gotta count for something surely?

HS30 00741
Engine No.: L24 031211
Colour: 918 Kalahari Tan

Hullo Frank

I really enjoyed your story. 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.

When I went to take delivery of my new 240Z in 1971 I asked the dealer how he managed to obtain the registration number (BBQ-240) and he looked at me strangely and wondered why I would ask!! He explained that he wasn't aware of the interesting plate - it was what the registration office issued him at the time. I thought it was quite an amazing coincidence!!

Great to read your story. I think many of us will be interested in seeing some photos and hearing of your refreshment of your "old" 240Z. Thanks again.

Regards, Jack

It's certainly nice to know a bit of the history of it. Just missing the few years now from 1976 to about 2002. :)

 

I was quite amazed so see that post from the original owner. Thanks for the link Gav.

I think everyone here would love to talk to the original owners of their cars. Would make for some interesting conversations.

If only our cars could talk!

I don't think I have any photos of #166 would love to see some! No matter what state it's currently in!

 

Also if you find out what your dad's car is I'd also love to see photos and know it's current state. I'm collecting details and photos of EVERY HS30 I can, as I find it tells a very interesting story of these cars and their condition, colours and specification. Along with the build no's, date of production etc.. often finding batches of cars with close VIN #'s were sent here and any large gaps I assume means cars were exported elsewhere like UK, South Africa or sold in Japan (in some cases as Fairlady 240ZG's and Fairlday 240Z's).

 

It's often interesting that people looking to buy cars ask me for history on them, in some cases I'm able to share photos of them in previous states or find their brother/sister cars and confirm what their original colour was or likely to be etc..

 

I still need to put a lot of this information into a more permanent database. I had never intended to go down this route, but it's become a strange addiction.
