Greetings, looked for Z came with a K

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, been lurking around for a while. Was on a lookout for a 240/260z but couldn't find one i liked and a 240k came up i couldn't say no to. I still would love to own a zed but its on the back burner till i finish this and my s14 again. Originally i was goin to keep it like a stock 240k but as per usual i couldn't help myself haha.

Some pics from the start 2011

Nice work on those panel restorations. These are super cool cars, shame there are so few left these days.

 

I'm going to assume you have seen this?

How hard is it to separate the bonnet frame and skin? I ask because my 240z's bonnet is quite good apart from some accident damage in 1 corner.

Very cool! I also looked into getting a 240k 2 door they are so hard to come by I pretty much gave up.

And when they do come up for sale there sold before I had seen the add.

looks like will be a cool project well done!

 

cheers Doug

yeh i prob bought the last cheap one before prices went up, only paid 1500ish for it.

 

Separating the panels is rather easy to a certain degree. Can put up some more info if you want.

 

Yeh i have seen Adams build, we have had many conversations and traded parts over the years haha.

I decided on a gtr copy so front guards and quarters needed the chop. Pulled the inner section like the bonnet.

Welcome, your not the only one with an old Skyline. Lots of good info about L series engine, differentials and the like. Older Skylines are few and far between.

Welcome Scott

 

Hardly ever see 240K's these days, such a shame.

Your car is looking good, keep the photos coming.

 

Cheers

Love the 240k, be pretty good if we maybe had a 240k/early skyline section on our forum.

 

Hmmm can of worms in a way. I've considered expanding Auszcar to cover all early Datsun's but at the time it seemed easier to try start a new website instead. So I created www.vintagejdm.com which needs reworking..

 

We can perhaps start a new thread to discuss?

 

Anyway back on topic. Nice work on the door shell repair and wheel arch is coming along nicely.

Start one please Gav. Would like to see it expand to all Datsuns.

Agree probably worth a separate thread, but I would vote to expand this forum.

We are already seeing discussion around non Z's being embraced by members.

Sort of like a one stop shop for all things Datsun, rather than having to go to another site

 

Just my 2 cents

This is gonna be epic.

My dream car garage includes a kenmeri gtr replica, I like to keep my dreams 'semi'-realistic hahaha

 

Can't wait to see more updates

Cheers, never expected them to get my hype over the years. It's been good and bad, parts are really hard to find now and people want stupid money for them.

Finished priming this at 6pm tonight haha. Just got the boot to prime :)

Welcome, love the K. That shift knob looks familiar  :)

 

does any one know if the gearknob in that photo is from a 240K?? I have one the same......it was sold to me in a batch of second hand parts for my  240Z and the seller later argued that it was the correct knob for a 240Z.... nothing like the one in the 240Z that I bought new in 1973..

Final check for door gaps

And finally got a set of these

They are still in japan and unsure on internal specs but they are 44's. Bit of a gamble but hopefully they pay off.
