  1. There is a total of 8 red interior HS30's I know of... only 4 of those have Silver (901) paint. The other 4 are (904) white.. So it's a really rare combo..
  2. HS30 100986 - Looks like a heap of you know what... but it's quite rare to find a red interior car in 901 Silver. I hate bad previous repairs. Give me a neglected car over a poorly repaired 1 any day.. Like many of these cars that pop up again and again, I think they never really sell. Just disappear for a bit and re-appear.

  5. Oh and I noticed that it appears the aircon compressor works. So it may just need a regas.
  6. @HS30-H curious what is usually written on the globe box of a Fairlady 240Z and Fairlady 240ZG? Or for that matter PS30? And was there anything written on a PS30-SB since they didn't often have a glove box lid, but may have had a glove box shelf still? Even seen that?
  7. So the horn hasn't been working... couldn't work it out. There was some additional horn in the engine bay near the airbox that was tapped into the horn loom. Think it may have been done for the alarm. Otherwise someone could disconnect the horns by reaching under the bumper. I looked in the Haynes manual at the wiring diagram and saw the horn circuit is pretty simple. It basically just grounds out to sound the horns. I also found this diagram on the web. I removed the additional aftermarket horn, reconnected both horns at the front, removed the additional loom that was aftermarket. Still wouldn't work... then I decided I'd swap the relay out from HS30 00150.. But it made no difference. I knew the horns worked because when the alarm was installed and I reconnected them, they went off.. So that lead me to believe there was an issue on the switch side. After a bit of faffing about, I removed the cowling around the wheel. Then I noticed the horn was working? I thought maybe I jiggled a wire and checked all the connections. Then I put the cowl back on and the horn stopped working. Perplexed I realised there was a loose wire (see photo). It looked like rather than solder the joint, someone had tried ti silicone it in place... anyway, I soldered it back so it's nice and secure and the horn now works. Success.. I had to remove the steering wheel to get to it properly though. I'm sure the neighbours were wondering why the hell the horn kept going off, but this was the last non-working road worthy item I knew would come up. Other items not working are interior courtesy light (which I think is the bulb), 1 reverse light is out (probably bulb) and the antenna switch doesn't work (or antenna doesn't go up and down).

    240z aircon

    Pickup from 9 Silver St Eltham, Vic 3095. Mon-Friday 9am-5pm Sat 10am-1pm. That's handy, I was gonna say go to Vintage Air https://www.vintageair.com/ But if they have a local reseller, even better.
  9. Only old Datsun weird beards would celebrate how regular they are!
  10. www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1972-datsun-240z-manual/OAG-AD-18270079/ HLS30 904 White with Red Interior car for sale locally.
  11. Last I spoke to the OP he said old mate still wasn't willing to let it go. Since he's a neighbour I guess he's keeping an eye on it. I'm really curious what the chassis no. is since so few of these cars came with the Blue interior but a handful were around the high 9XX range. So far I realised my 71 240z with blue interior is the only RHD 240z in the world that is 904 white, blue interior and an auto box. Happy to be proven wrong, but it's the only 1 I know of in the world in that specification.
  12. Yes I know, but it would be worth significantly more properly restored. I found some photos of it I had taken for a friend. https://photos.app.goo.gl/SdczBQww9xhh4RZP7 The frame has significant surface rust, but I believe could be relatively easily rectified. Let me know what price you're offering, shipping to Japan could be a challenge given size/dimensions.

  15. It's currently very rough, I'll need to check cost to restore. Let me see if I can dig out some old photos. Otherwise I'll be back near the storage it's in, in a couple of weeks.
  16. I potentially have 1 I could sell, I can even get it restored in advance (re-skinned) professionally.
  17. I'm wondering if this puts to rest the idea that a boat headed for the UK of early 240z's was diverted to Australia? If cars were assembled with intention to be here and it's scribed on their glove boxes then no such boats were ever turned around. Unless someone hopped under all the Z's and changed factory markings.. but that I doubt. I don't recall where the rumour started but it seemed to stem from the fact that the UK got 2 early cars but Australia seems to have received the majority of early low VIN # 240z's, then the UK and other RHD markets caught up later.
  18. No they are different. Don't usually have the "chrome" looking cerated bit around the outer edges. Must be off another old Radio.
