    • Saw a maroon 260 2+2 today over in Kensington on historic plates. Good to see an old girl out in the daily traffic and getting around.
    • Maybe so. But I've also seen several 240Zs with substitute diffs installed and their non-matching moustache bars mounted whichever way round to best fit and installed incorrectly. People use whatever they can get their hands on to get mobile. So take measurements off an original car if you can.
    • I'm keen and my Rx7 is road ready.. might be able to get the white 71 ready before depending on dates etc..?

      Shift Boot, Inner & Outer I am sure I forgot other bits like naming hoses, break boost cylinders etc.   The bad, or bits still to address. Original paint is good from far but far from good – faded and rough with front fenders not colour matched.  I bought it like that. Fuel gauge is intermittently working Recently I got a fuel cut 2 times so seems like fuel issue but has not come back, never the less cheap fix. Definitely needs a carb tune to get the most of the engine. Couple of small rust bubbles that have been there since I purchased the car about 4 years ago, these have not progressed at all over time. Diff is ok, I was planning to find an LSD solution so have not replaced but diff is ok. All work has been done by my stepbrother who is a qualified mechanic. To finish the vehicle to what she deserves a respray, new carpet kit and re-upholstery, I would replace the short shifter as the throw is too short for reverse which was the reason I unnecessarily replaced the gearbox with rebuild one after installing the short shifter – it was not the gear box issue but the short shifter kit, easily reversible and cheap to fix. The car is registered on full registration and I drive the Z to the city and back in traffic without issues or a trip to the mountains when weather permits and when I can be bothered pulling her out of dry storage.  Car is very nimble, lots of fun and gets loads of positive attention. I did get RWC certificate all of the above mentioned replaced items but wheels are debatable. Car is sold registered. Reason for sale: Since the Z lives in dry storage, I do not get to drive it so it does not make sense to pay full registration and full insurance. My qualified mechanic stepbrother is very unhappy with me for selling this car as he has put in many many hours of effort hence why some small issues not addressed and no RWC as he is not willing to help me sell the car. Need to figure out how to link more photos of the build. I will accept $30,000 - not negotiable Contact Via PM or Zero four zero three four five one eight eight eight
