A complete car (yup I've seen the rust) for $100 and a little effort and nobody thinks that's the buy of the year (or decade)? There's a couple of grand in parts that'll take you a day to get off. Perhaps there are too many rich people into Datsuns now...

I think the general consensus is that that rust it is much more than a day's work to get any usable parts off there....

You really have to look at it and evaluate. I am guessing if the car is that bad the roof will be pretty bad also.

I'd be surprised if the whole car didn't come apart towing it out of that spot.

I had a serious think about grabbing it. The problem for me is a lack of space right now.
I am in the middle of transplanting the 280ZX drve line into the 260Z so have two cars in pieces scattered around the workshop.

if I only had the one Z in the workshop I would be heading up to Lisarow and shovelling it onto a car trailer.

From memory that car was up for sale in South Australia a while ago, had a modified nose cone if I recall correctly. It was certainly not everyone's tea cup.

Can anyone explain to WHY you would do that swap.

I can't imagine it has either more power or lighter weight ?

It's strange that he says its a 3.5 litre P76 V8 - they were/are 4.4 litre. The 3.5 litre was used in various Rovers, Stags, Land Rovers, MGBV8's, TVR's, TR8's, Morgans and so on...

This might throw some light on this car -

I bought a copy of the July/August 1989 edition of an Australian car magazine called 'Street & Custom' earlier this year - purely because it had an article about Allan Fielding's 240Z race car.

This car will be known to many members here and is mentioned as one of the cars that was at the 2013 Nationals in Queensland.

(It seems that Allan registered here as Allanz33, but only made one post - to contact BigCol about photos of his car)

http://www.viczcar.c...is-going/page-4

 

AllanFieldingRace240Z.JPG

 

The article, entitled 'What Have We Started?' and written by the magazine's editor Wayne Cantell, begins like this -

 

β€œIn the January/February edition of Street & Custom I ran a story about a 240Z running a Hot Holden six. I thought the concept of the double-H motor/conversion was a good one which offered a viable alternative to warming a Datsun or shoe-horning a V8. It generated some good letters of enquiry and it also brought me a phone call and this letter to my desk...
 
'Dear Sir,
further to our telephone conversation six weeks ago, I enclose some photos and information on my 240Z.
 
I feel this proves that the article on the yellow 240Z was neither fair nor correct.
The article said that Holden motors are easier to obtain higher horsepower figures from them (sic) Datsun sixes – but the engine in question produces only 174hp at the wheels.
Compare this to my car's 168kW (225hp) from only 2754cc as compared with the Holden's 3000cc. And that figure is taken at the rear wheels!
Also, my engine doesn't leak oil like Holden engines do!
 
I hope that you will feature my car to show that a well designed small capacity OHC Japanese six is a real alternative to the agricultural Holden and Ford sixes.
 
Yours
Allan Fielding
Kyneton, Victoria.'”
 
There is then a description of Allan's car and 7 photos of it.
 
The conclusion of the article is -
"So there we have it - an alternative to an alternative!
It's hard - as I said earlier - to really draw a comparison without knowing the costs involved, although personally I think I'd opt for the all-Nissan route!"
 
Oldmates260z's link still seems to be broken and I don't have a copy of the January/February 1989 edition of Street & Custom magazine, but the car in question may well be the one that started this discussion.

Still don't know if they also transplanted the "3 on the tree" gearbox and shifter, for the complete red motor experience.

Geez GongZ, you're a better Z detective than I, better step up my game :).

 

Since we are on the topic of "why bother engine conversions" I'm sure you've seen and heard of this also?

http://www.viczcar.c...hemi-in-a-240z/

 

I saw more photos of this car a while ago, but can't find them now.

Nope - I don't think I have seen that one. But here is what happened to a motor someone took out of a 240Z -
