  1. Just a quick note to let everyone know that the new edition of Unique Cars Magazine, Issue #445, features a Datsun 240-Z "Restoration" article. Also features a Toyota 2000GT. Im not affiliated with Unique Cars Magazine in anyway, just wanted to let all members know. Would be interesting to see if the owner of the car in the article is a member here, or if any members know of the car.
  2. Havent seen this one posted anywhere on here: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1973-datsun-240z-manual/SSE-AD-6821611/?Cr=0 Looks like a bargain!
  3. A note from Carl Beck <Quote> Hi Joseph: Wanted to let you know and hoping you will let others in your area know - that i have released a digital copy of Mr. Uemura’s Book. So that the expensive shipping charges when ordering a book from the US - can be avoided for our over-sea’s enthusiasts. I’ve posted the following to several FaceBook Groups. Perhaps you can Post it to some of the Club’s and/or On line forums in your area. While everyone is Sheltering-In-Place: I am pleased to announce that the book “DATSUN 240Z Engineering Development” written by Mr.
  4. Sorry for the misread. When you said Dr Harry I assumed you meant the TV vet as I have seen this reported in the past.
  5. TV doctor Harry COOPER did not own #4. CORBET owned #4. Not sure of fathers name but son is Trent.
  6. It is a 1973 model as stated by GongZ. It is interesting though that it was complianced in Australia until 1975. That's one hell of a long boat trip!
  7. Now listed on the carsales website: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1973-datsun-240z-auto/SSE-AD-6403831/?Cr=0
  8. Result pretty much as expected; topped USA$100k but didn't top the Franklin Mint car by Bill Reagan auctioned off several weeks ago through the same website.
  9. I haven't seen this one posted yet https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1972-datsun-240z-93/ Very significant car in the USA. It will be interesting to see what it sells for and if it manages to reach the "dizzying heights" of the recently auctioned Franklin Mint car by Bill Reagan. Time will tell, in fact approximately 6 days! Im betting it will go above USA$100k.
  10. I wanted to add my 2 cents worth to this discussion thread. After doing my research I purchased a Covercraft car cover for both my 240-Z and my Torana in the "Noah" fabric. When the cover for my 240-Z arrived, it had two mirror pockets in it, one on either side where the doors are. I had to send it back as my car has the front fender mounted mirrors...so lesson 1 here in ordering from them is to be VERY specific regarding things like this. One thing which is my fault as I didn't think of it is that the Torana has a exterior black plastic louver on the rear window, no allowance as made for this
