New to this side of the car scene, but just purchased a 240/260 that is still currently in japan. Getting a full restoration over there prior to shipping here to perth.
Now I'll confess I know little to nothing about these cars and I'm also chasing some advise that I'm hoping some of the guys here can assist with.
I've been told the car is a 240z however I've since been told its a 260, now I know there isn't much between the two but am wanting to make sure I'm getting what I'm paying for.
Things I do know, the car was first registered in March 1975, which is 260Z territory, but first registration isn't a guarantee. my understanding is that the dash in the car is very much 260 also.
does anybody know if you can tell from the vin or the like how to tell the build date as it seems this information is super hard to come by and the VIN is simply S30xxxxxxx so basically says s30 series (240/260) and a serial number no difference between models etc.
Anyways some extra info on the car.
Originally had the L20 has been swapped for an L28 and been stroked to 3L 5 speed manual nissan racing gear box, RS200 diff and some driveline upgrades too.
Annd some pics.
