Rev's new Zed Project

Recommended Posts

Hi guys well here is the start of a new journey with a new RevZed project.  Just did the deal on this 74 260 (pre emissions) from NSW - it's stock and an auto...so yep here comes my 3rd manual conversion! I'll keep everyone posted as this one gets the 'Rev Build up'.

So who looked at it for you? Did you get a good price? Keeping it gold or or plans for a colour change?!

 

Is it running?

8) good on you :)

 

I forget you poor guys in Oz got all the emission stuff we were lucky here in NZ as my 76 (build) 77 sold car never had any of that junk.

Gold will go and will probably go either nice gumetal silver or white with black diamond pattern vinyl and leather interior.

I love the gold colour, not that many around...(except for Lurches)..

Ah! I will do. If it's cheap enough I'll be transporting it for sure. Otherwise I'll drive mine down in the next month or so, and I'm sure we can find a driver (*cough* Scott) to join me on the journey down in your new toy Rev!

Ah just saw this post. Good to see you found a 2 seater. I remember selling my bus and getting the shorter 2 seater and initially found it strange to look back and see no seats or reach out and touch the back tyre whilst the window is down sitting at a set of lights in summer. Will be good to follow the build up of this one!

 

All the best with the car mate.

congratulations Rev.

 

cant wait for build up process.....

 

yeah not a big fan of gold either. though like your plans Dave cant wait to see it all happen. 

 

i love the look of 2 seaters with flares (well got a set for my 240) but i still cringe at the idea of cutting the guards to fit them..... hmmmm still thinking about it........ yep flares are going on cutting or no cutting.

 

but i bet u miss ur 2+2 than again u got two more so maybe u dont  :P

It was a hard decision to make to cut the guards.  But when I saw the amount of rust and bog in mine, it became a very easy decision lol

Gee seeing your new car reminds me of my 260Z I purchased new in 1975 Gold with a cream/white interior and manual of course (see pic). Most 2 seaters were manual and most 2+2's were autos I guess the autos for sale are less desirable and the manuals are held nore sought after and held onto. Bronze body color was more common than the the gold body color at the time. Lynton 8)

They were fitted by me after I purchased the car! I believe when I purchased them they were off Japanese spec rally 240Z race cars used in various parts of the world and the cars were pushed over the side the ship when finished with and into the sea as Nissan could not take the fully assembled cars back into Japan something about duties/taxes and Japanese government regulations I don't know if the information was true and correct at the time but it was a win win for me. They were chrome frames and screws with fitted frame gasket inserted to the frame and very thick perspex almost unbreakable by stones perfectly tailor made Lynton  8)
