[Nsw] 1975 260Z 2+2

Recommended Posts

For sale is my bus, purchased off Ben Ellis (Otomoto) last year in a state of slight neglect, but have spent countless hours working on it myself and also by Stewart Wilkins Motorsport. 

 

Big change in circumstances for me will not see the car get the attention it deserves. 

1975 Datsun 260z 2+2

L28 N42/N42 Combo

240z Round top carb (3 screw) 

5 speed manual

Sunroof (does not leak) 

 

Since my ownership I've had the following work done by Stewart Wilkins Motorsport, receipts will be provided.

Full overhaul on the twin SU's.

Reconditioned brake booster.

Fix door locking issue.

Fix indicator stalk issue.

New Battery.

 

I've done a fair bit of work myself with the electrical issues in and around the car.

Added relays to the headlight circuit as per wiring diagrams from here. Takes a pretty big load off the cars electrical system. 

Oil/Filter and plugs have been changed very recently (<1000kms) 

Replaced speedometer cable.

Replaced speedometer/odometer gauge with a working unit.

Re-fitted the head-unit that was previously removed. (Have sourced a genuine 260z unit, not sure if in working condition)

Replaced battery negative cable (old one was rooted)

Painted rear garnish

 

and a few other bits and pieces.

 

Interior is in reasonable condition, dash has been recovered at some stage, so no cracks but has a small bubble on top of the gauges.  

 

Body is in pretty good nick, it's been painted sometime recently and there's a few imperfections from that. Top of passenger door and a bit on the bottom of radiator support seem like the biggest culprits to me. Rear hatch slam panel seems pretty solid.

 

Motor and gearbox are solid, although there is a small oil leak from the sump. (I've purchased the gasket, haven't had time to install it) 

 

For people that are worried about it's reliability, I've driven the car daily since I've bought it.

NSW number plates will go with the car along with the genuine Watanabe wheels. 

 

Price: $15000

Location: The Ponds NSW 2769.

Contact: Please PM if you'd like to know more or arrange a viewing.

Hi,

 

Shame you have to sell, that is a really good looking car and $15K seems like good value.

Good luck with the sale.

 

Cheers

Thanks all, hoping it goes to someone that appreciates it. Have had a gentleman make an offer today, but was just that touch too low. 

 

It's currently still on the market for those interested, feel free to PM me fore my phone number if you'd like to have a chat. 

Thanks,
Manyu.
