260Z Restoration Project


Recommended Posts

I am looking for 2 alloy wheels to suit a 260Z as part of a restoration project, would be great to hear from anyone who might have some they’re happy to part with.

This photo shows the wheel type I need and I think it’s a 5.5J *14 - with a 15mm offset.

I have some spares but I'm too far away in Qld to be worth the freight. You should be able to find some in Vic, they're pretty common.

The very early 260Zs missed out but they were a factory option on the rest, and FWIW were also one of the wheel styles used on the 280ZX.

Thanks for your reply , I’ll keep hunting locally for a bit.

at this stage I am planning to get up to Cairns for Targa Great Barrier Reef so I might give you a yell if I am not able to sort anything out beforehand 

cheers

May not be happening (as a competitive event anyway)?

"TARGA to work with Motorsport Australia

TARGA Australia will continue to work with Motorsport Australia following that organisation’s decision to suspend issuing permits for any Targa style tarmac rally events.

The suspension follows the tragic death of a competitor, Tony Seymour, during the recent 2022 TARGA Tasmania."

Yes it’s all up in the air at the moment, hopefully MA and Targa will get it sorted

If I were you I'd grab a set off Linton, wouldn't hurt to have a spare or two in case someone scrapes a kerb. Although they're inexpensive to repair as they don't have a clear coat to take off and reapply unlike many other wheels. Although I have seen painted ones.

PS. Personally I really like the design, I wish someone would replicate them in say 16", and a tad wider, as there aren't too many tyre choices left in 14" these days. Like what are available in the USA for their muscle cars.
