Price drop.1977 260Z

Recommended Posts

1977 Datsun 260Z.

No expense spared to build the best street 260Z in Australia whilst remaining faithful to the original design. This is the much sought after later model S30 shape with better doors and stiffer chassis of the US spec 280Z. The 77 is a rare car in RHD.

Too many hours and dollars have been put into this car to even start to calculate it.
Car has had a full bare metal restoration and has zero rust. Was cavity waxed when put back together and painted in original 305 Blue.


Bespoke custom trim in European Leather by leather experts BnB in Carrum. Everything in the car is leather and the carpet was a custom single piece. Original seats rebuilt with new padding and slightly reshaped. Hidden Alpine UTE 204DAB stereo and amps under the seats, with Mille Pro 69 speakers discretely positioned in the tool boxes behind the seats. This interior is immaculate and you will absolutely not find anything close to this.


Built by Les Collins at LCR (only the best) in October 2019 with fully rebuilt triple Mikuni 44phh's with 37mm chokes on a match ported Kameari manifold. 
Acid bathed F54 L28 block, honed and bored to 87mm with flat top pistons. ARP head studs. 
The N42 head has had heaps of work done. Chambers welded up to increase compression to 10.25:1, lots and lots of hours of porting and match porting and fully flow tested. 
Eibach valve sprints, special Eibach spring retainers, custom O/D Eibach spring retainers
ARP HSK. KP Engine Gasket. ITG airfilter. ATI harmonic balancer and pulley. Billet TDC pointer etc
Custom LCR ceramic extractors and 2.5” stainless exhaust all the way through. Sought after  2.9 ratio Z gearbox to an R200 diff.
Engine has been built as a strong reliable streeter. 
When building I slightly sacrificed top end power for better driveability but this thing still puts out good numbers (ask as you shall receive).

Engine was built in October and November this year and has less than 500km on it. $25,000 in receipts for the build.

Suspension has rebuilt struts with specific weight oil by Len Brennan to his "targa spec" with King springs. Nolathane bushes throughout and  whiteline sway bar. 
Genuine Simmons V4 wheels

If you know how rare rust free Z's are and how much it costs to build a car like this, then you know buying anything on the market at the moment and getting it to anywhere near this would be well in excess of $100K.

Any questions hit me up. won't reply to texts or emails. call me. 0421565541. Ben

After $68000 Ono
