    • Thats a really nice green with tan interior combination 
    • https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Datsun-240Z-1973/SSE-AD-5607717/?Cr=1 1973 Datsun 240z - $57,500.00 This eye catching 240Z offers the best of both worlds as it can be enjoyed as presented in its modified form or easily returned to standard trim for the purist. .Purchased several years ago as a nice clean survivor car, this Datto has virtually zero rust. At some point in the past the front of the driver’s side floor rail has been hit and split allowing for the ingress of water and dirt resulting in a rust hole about the size of a fifty-cent piece in the driver’s side floor which has been stabilised with rust convertor. The gentleman I purchased it from (via a broker) was believed to be the second owner and had owned the car for about 27 years. I drove the car around for a couple of years in its standard trim complete with dealer optioned Magnum wheels and Aunger rear louvre until I decided to prepare it for the “Targa Tasmania Classic Rallye 2018”, a touring event which also allows for some spirited driving on closed road sections. During the preparation the car was rubbed back and repainted in its original colour of paint code 113 and then clear coated. The paint is about 8/10. Underneath is still all original as are the wheel arches which could be painted but I wanted to leave the car original in places. In preparation for the Classic Rallye, (which I can thoroughly recommend to anyone), the following upgrades were made. **More comments in link**

    • Advance maybe one of your problems.
      Have a look at the advance plate under the points.
      The carrier that holds the ball bearings is usually gone and hence no advance.
      There should be three ball bearings at the end of the plastic arms.
      I remade mine in aluminium to fix the advance.
