I have noticed it has been fairly quiet on the site over the Christmas/newyear period so I thought it was about time I posted my project up.
I have owned this car since mid 2006 (nearly 10 years - seriously were did that go) and began work on it around Nov 2011. I have had a fair few 240/260 2 seaters in the past but this is the one that I chose to keep for the long term. I did have a total of 3 240's and 1 260 2 seater in the shed when my 2 daughters came on the scene. Reality kicked in pretty soon after the birth of my first daughter and the culling began ( you can't save them all). Being a 1970 240Z early build number with a matching number engine the choice was reasonably easy except for the slight ding in the front end.
The interior is in pretty good condition with the seats having been redone by the previous owner.
So the plan was to fix the crash damage and get it driving. Well one thing led to another and with my mate Vorn getting into a full on resto with his 240Z (see his build here - http://www.viczcar.c...920-gold-240z/ ) I was slowly but surely heading down the path of a full resto.
Nov 2011 I began in earnest by stripping the car down to a bare shell, geez thay come apart fast, pity they take so long to put back together.
Stay tuned for the next instalment.
