Yes it was originally silver! It's had 2 repaints - metallic blue and then red. But the interior under carpets etc is all silver. I'll put up some images. Some just to show the interior (which I think cleaned up well). I have an original steering wheel coming. Got a replacement lens for the map light installed now, some of these pics were from when I got the car.
There is Japanese writing all through the car. The speedo is in KPH. Not sure if all 240z in Aus had kph but the Sports were in MPH. I have a JDM Fairlady Sports. Under the wheel arches up the front is evidence of mirrors being installed. Someone has put in a small plate during a repaint. Is this normal? I'm making an assumption that mirrors were there. Also the interior panels have Japanese symbols on them (I make out Hiragana/Katakana, but my Kanji is non-existant) but I have no idea what they mean.
Otherwise the engine number is: L20586004, E30 head.
If you look at the ID plate on an angle you can make out a lot of print. Up top it has s30 and a kanji text beside it. See pic below. Its also got 1989cc engine capacity. The bottom box under the chassis number stamp has a 4 in it. Cannot make out another letter and I think there is Kanji along the bottom.
It has funky separable seat belts, and I'd appreciate any input on whether the interior stuff was common in Aus as well. Seatbelt tag also in Japanese. There is a random chassis shot, I was hunting for rust under the car. I've found almost none but having read a lot of build threads I know it is in there waiting!!!
Now to figure out how to put images up.
