  1. Did it sell in the end? I see the listing was removed?
  2. I think Castlemaine Road shop offered engine mounts for RB conversions. You'll want a forward facing plenum also. To do away with the over valve cover jobby on the Rb25. Weigh up the cost of conversion vs a Les Collins built L-series. You could make some good power out of an L-series with $15-20k thrown at it. https://www.rodshop.com.au/datsun/240z-260z/em081-nissan-engine-mounts.html

  4. https://www.classicdriver.com/en/article/cars/future-trading-classic-cars-according-jan-b-luhn Thought this was interesting.
  5. So I managed to get the antenna out. I sprayed some of this.. Into the channel here. Where I'm pointing. This part was catching so I had to use a screw driver to push it down into the channel and thread it past. You can see it apart here. But I couldn't get all antenna extensions to extend. I sprayed a lot of the liquid wrench into the antenna tip and have let it soak. I used a propane torch to lightly heat it up, but still wouldn't budge. So I may soak it in oil or similar.. but need to be very gentle since these are so easy to snap / break otherwise. I also cannot yet separate the long antenna mast tube from the body of the assembly. It's like an interference fit. Also tried heat here to no avail yet.

    Good luck, even rusty / projects are now minimum $15k+ it would appear. There is 1 on Gumtree and another on eBay at the minute. Under $20k.

  11. 2+2s have been increasing in price due to supply drying up. $5k is not a lot for an S30z chassis.(I've seen worse sell for more). But 2+2s are a little trickier to restore due to most parts being reproduced aimed at 2 seat cars. I would go look at it and inspect the rust and straightness of the shell. If you're gonna restore a 2+2 start with a relatively solid / straight 1. A rough 1 will cost a lot more to restore long term and you won't get the money back within the next 5 years, maybe in 10. Good luck..
  12. I'd go Rb25 NEO bang for buck. If doing a motor swap. 20b would be awesome but incredibly expensive. Sr20 doesn't sound right and 2JZ is also expensive. Although a great engine.
  13. Provided those rust spots are all you find when you strip it back. I'd say that's a reasonable figure. But be prepared for snags along the way.
  14. For $5k seems very fair price wise, considering condition and work required to get it back on the road.
  15. Just saw another box on YAJ! https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/c830343618 Bad translation here: https://www.vintagecraft-e-za.com/
  16. Probably unlikely, but speak with the RMS in NSW about it.
  17. I have 1 spare somewhere, but have to dig it out.
  18. The example above had the no. 66626. This is from my 71 HS30 01415. I couldn't make out the text before, but assume it was the same as the example above. 5080 or 5089 or even 50895 but the relays (non original added to the starter motor wiring) are covering the last digit.
  19. Found these on another very original 240z (73 model 901 silver with red interior). Compliance plate has the same no. on it. So this leads me to believe they must have been some kind of compliance process mark or sequence.
  20. Well that was fun and I've got the busted nuckles to prove it.
  21. It's quite possible that Len's car is long gone. Of the supposed 2,500 delivered here. I've only recorded 550 or so cars.
  22. HS30 101368 is listed for sale. http://www.affordableclassics.com.au/classic-cars-for-sale?product_id=108 https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/fyshwick/cars-vans-utes/1973-datsun-240z-manual/1249330092

    I believe reproductions were made available not long ago. There is a thread here somewhere.
