Hi guys, posted a few questions about 260z wheels a while ago and said I would put up some info on my cars when I had time.

Had a 74 240k sedan given to me from my Grandfather as my first car, loved it but when it needed some work and car was not worth anything I let it go. :'( Only a few years ago my Granddad passed away and got me thinking about that old car again.  Even though I hadn't seen one for 15 years I thought I had to find one. I came across a wreck by chance and bought it with the thought of fixing it. It was pretty bad but lots of good parts so I kept my eyes open. About 2 years ago a guy rang me regarding a wanted ad I put on gumtree. He said he typed in 240k for sale in google and my details came up as the first response so he rang me. Pic of 1977 sedan from Melbourne.

This is the 1976 sedan I found in the back shed of a wreckers in northern NSW. Was lucky to find this one and it also came with a pretty good parts car as a bonus.

Interior of the my white car is pretty good as is the body. Does have a few car park battle scars though. I have a 5spd manual and a 260 motor to go in it soon. Also had the flywheel lightened a bit.
Pic was before I cleaned it. Had been sitting for many years.

Here are a few pics of the Blue car interior, it is about as good as an original car can get I think. Gave this car a wipe over and got it running, that's about it until I get more time. Engine is a bit smokey but runs fine.

Gidday,

Some nice looking examples in the shed.
Funny, it only seems like yesterday that the 240K was regarded as an "Ugly Ducklng" and nobody wanted them.

How times change.

Cheers

PB

Thanks PB260Z, they are an acquired taste I think. Had to give mine away 17 or so years ago and there was a coupe down the road from me for sale for ages at $250. It was good cond too.

The previous, previous owner had the wheels polished up and  centre caps machined up and by the looks pressed in? Nice and neat.

Yes, they do look great!

Is that just a shed load of elbow grease and a clear coat?
Are the shouldered wheel nuts still available, where do you get them from?

Look forward to a pic once with rubber and on the car. :)

Hi Mick

You could get them from old parts cars, maybe even 280ZX's ;-)

Cheers

I bought a '73 240K coupe when I was 19.
It was my introduction to Datsun/Nissan cars and their legendary L series engines.
Really miss that car.

Got my first 240Z at 23!

Btw I am 53 now!

A guy down the street from me owns a 240K Coupe GTR replica.
A very nice car.

They are cool cars no-doubt I remember being a teen some 25years ago and seeing a few in the Wreckers yard - I thought the where cool and quirky in a sea of the Australian Made Holden  kingswoods, wish I had stashed a couple of them back then.
