Hi guys,

 

This is Adrian from London, United Kingdom. 

 

Been driving Nissans for many years now, 350z, 370z and now a GTR R35, but after helping my very good friend Darren restoring his here in UK, I fell in love with the Datsun 240z. So currently looking for one, I will post a Wanted post if I'm allowed. :)

 

Any tips for finding one in a good condition / no rust / starting / driving / RHD please fire away. I know I'm looking for an unicorn, but I'm in no rush :) I want it as OEM as possible, not restored.

 

Thanks!

 

Adrian

Welcome Adrian

 

I would suggest apart from this forum that you register with Australian and NZ online car sales sites etc and set up alerts to notify you when they come up which they do from time to time.

 

Cheers

 

John

Thanks a lot John, I will do that!

Your welcome Mate

 

I'm sure if you find one, even though we hate seeing colony cars make their way back to the B*stards that sent us here, that members on the forum would be happy to do an inspection for you ;-)

The way the Pound is, you get a lot of Aussie car for your Quid!
My rather enhanced 260Z would only set you back some 22,000 quid, plus shipping!

Thers been a few bought here and taken to the UK.
Something about our steering wheel is on the correct side!

Yes, the two reasons I'm looking to buy in Australia are:

- sunny place - less rust hopefully

- wheel on the right side - RHD :)

 

240z up to '72 preferred :D

 

Thanks for the tips!
