    It's an acquired look with the mudflaps, it looks like its straight from the showroom almost.

    Thanks Gav, we think we have priced it competitively with what else is for sale at the moment. Plus I've bought back my old early red 240z so we do need the space

    For sale is this 1974 260z 2 seater, matching numbers and in very good condition. The 260z presents well and is a good rust free car and still retains many of the original parts and original log books. Inside is in very good original condition and has an uncracked dash and the original radio, the carpets and seats still present well with no evident rips or tears. Out side the car presents well but does have a few paint blemishes which could be tidied up all the suspension still feels tight, the engine has been rebuilt and the gearbox changes smoothly. Overall the 260z is ideal for someone after a weekend driver to have fun in.

    A mate and I were having a chat this morning who also owns a few early cars and after restoring a couple we've noticed many differences between the early cars and later model 240z's. We thought that it might be an idea to start a topic since there are a few being restored now.
    Differences we've noted so far:
    - radiator support top
    - Brackets that are welded onto the inner guard to support the guard
    - rear hatch lock down panel is split in two
    - Ashtray lid handle
    - Wire tabs in the engine bay and in the cabin
    - Air vent in the fascia
    - Map light cover
    - Metal radiator fan
    - E31 engine head
    - Door hinges
    - Rear hatch
    - Gearbox
    - Diff position
    - Speedo
    - Metal exterior badges
    - Rear tail lights 
    - Seats
    - Centre console with hand choke and throttle
    - steering wheel
    - 4 screw carbies instead of three
    - some have an e31 block others have a p30
    -fender mirrors
     
    that's what i've remembered so far, if we can ad to the list to get an idea on whats different with these cars.

    It was one of the stronger ones that was sold first, a couple of the other cars struggled

    Hey all,
    I have been thinking about starting a build thread for a while but have been putting it off, but i've decided to bite the bullet and start it up, perhaps more or less for my own records but hopefully I will be able to help a few people out as I have found huge amounts of valuable knowledge on this forum. Here we go!
     
    Back story:
    I picked up this 1976 260z 2+2 in mid 2017.  I had been looking for a Z for a while (needed a new project car since I sold my last, a R32 skyline) but all I could seem to find was either cars with more rust then metal left or ones that had been restored and way out of budget. So when this one came up, regoed, somewhat driving and what I would call a reasonable condition and price I jumped! The guy I bought it off had the engine rebuilt.  He couldn't tell me much or find the receipts but I do believe it was rebuilt.
     
    Goals:
    For me, this car is all about having a project to work on in some of my spare time.  I'm an engineer and love designing and building things.  My general philosophy is I try to do everything I can do myself and learn from my mistakes and give it another go if I need to.  Therefore I know the end result wont be as good as some one who gave their car to workshops and let someone else build it, but for me it's all about the fun of the build.
     
    But to the car, my vision is a street car that I can take to the occasional track day or tarmac sprint. I was thinking about naming this thread "add it to the list" because every time I think about an element of the car, something about it needs to be fixed or replaced and I keep saying to myself, i'll add it too the list.  But i'll get into details as the thread goes ahead, I have lots of cool ideas, hopefully some of which will come to fruition.  I am taking it one step at a time, first the engine, then the suspension and brakes, then the panel work and interior is the simplified plan.
     
    Well heres a photo that makes the car look really really good, why not I say, there will be plenty of those gritty 'before' style photos along the way.
