One of the forum guys on zClub.net suggested I contact your club and let them know I have just bought an ex Aussie car - now in the UK.
Its the orange 1971 car - which was in Sydney, then Melbourne and then Taz. An Aussie guy (Jody) bought my car and another 240z and shipped them to UK in June. The car was then sent to Four Ways garage (a specialise z garage) - where I viewed, inspected and then purchased.
Love the car. Very nice original condition. Needs tidying up and new paint - but fundamentally a really solid car - rust free. A credit to the previous owners who maintained the car.
Not sure about the seats. They are velour. Either been recovered, standard or replacement 260z? Other than the seats - its lovely.
For interest sake - the asking price for my one and the other one is around the €50k Aus. So there must be a bit of margin in shipping RHD cars to UK.
If anyone has any history or knowledge of my car I'd really like to hear from them. I'll send a note to the previous owners - but suspect they have moved on and not now active members.
If anyone's interested - I'll keep you posted on developments and how the car comes along. My plan is to keep it as a driver - not concours it or over restore it - just make it pretty!
