Vehicle history:

Chassis # S30-006569 would have been built in 1971. (HS30-H confirmed this).
 
Purchased by an Illawarra BHP executive whilst stationed in Japan. The date of import to Australia is not exactly known but can be assumed that it was in 1971 as that is the date of first registration in Australia. 
 
The car is designated as Fairlady Z-L and is an early car with many of the early features. As a Fairlady Z-L it has the Rally Clock, Passenger foot rest, mesh grille, chrome trim headlight covers etc..
 
The car was sold to a Wollongong (NSW) person about 1980 who maintained the vehicle (including engine swap but no notification to RTA) until I purchased in 1999. 
 
Since purchasing the car I have extensively modified the car over the period.
 
A note on original motor and matching no.'s for domestic market S30Z's.
It would also have originally been fitted with an L20A, but as Japanese market cars don't have the engine number stamped on their ID plate, fitting another L20A with the right number range back into the car and the 71A gearbox would satisfy returning it to original if that was desired?
 
The list of modifications is extensive and would easily exceed $50k+ on their own.
 

 

 

The attached pages outline the modifications and relevant comments. 
Not all changes require Engineer Certification but never the less they are here for the record.

Certainly done a lot of work and spent a stack of cash with some nice bits attached. Its a shame its trapped in the late 80's/90's styling era though. Will be interesting to see what it goes for.

Yes interior is a bit dated. Frank has had the car for many many years now and done a lot of work in that time. Fixing the interior would be a cheap exercise relatively speaking and whilst the paint is a bit modern for the era in my opinion. I think it's similar to the ZG maroon colour and with a few subtle changes could be made to look a bit more true JDM.

 

Frank is now 70 years of age, he just isn't using it the same as he used to and wants to see it go to a good home and be cherished and maintained correctly. Not go to a young bloke who might not have much respect for the kind of power it makes and end up hurting themselves in it.

Its definitely got good bones, Once you get the interior done in some black vinyl or leather, Fix up the Ronald McDonald engine bay. Change the wheels and get rid of the chrome rimmed headlight covers, Kamaeri spoiler. You would have a fairly nice car.

I would estimate around the 55k to 60k with the current market.

Where does the flux capacitor get mounted?

 

Anywhere you want really, but there might be space in the storage bins :D

The more and more I look at this, the more I like it. Looks good in person too, even with the paint chipped in a few places. I would be surprised if this goes for less than $45k.

Not many cars in that show room look better in my opinion, even with all of the chrome......well maybe the 930 Turbo

Haha, yes I know. That's where I went and saw it in person, in the Shannon's showroom, as much as I would love to buy this, I am sure it will get beyond my reach.

Will be test of the market for modified vs original/stock Z's. Haven't seen a 240 with this amount of work done up for auction before.
