I'm the proud owner of shell HS30-00127 and when I say shell I mean what's in pic is all I've got. No engine or trans either. It's pretty straight and rust free but someone has hacked at a few areas like the transmission tunnel but nothing that can't be fixed.
I've been into Datsuns and JDM in general since flicking through Hot4s mags with my mates as a young bloke. It was always the 1600s that caught my eye so after driving a Mk1 two door Escort for a while (still got that one) and a '79 Chrysler Sigma wagon I found my first 1600 which I still have (as a shell at the moment). I have another parts 1600 and then my pride and joy an SR20DET 1600. I also have an M35 Stagea VQ25DET family hauler. I had a Z31 Turbo which I stripped for the 5 stud hubs but this is really my first Z. I have my wife to thank for finding this one (and letting me buy it) after she overheard a conversation between two work colleagues about "some Datsun shell in a shed somewhere".
Hoping from this club to get lots of ideas, advice, opinions and parts! I've got a few ideas going around in my head at the moment which don't involve an L series (don't kick me out already). If I had the matching engine, or could even find out what the original engine number was, I'd probably keep it L series. Instead, because I love orange and satin black I'm thinking a Fairlady Z432R "tribute", RB25/30 with triple carbs but I'm sure I'll change my mind along the way.
