    Looks tidy - do I know this car? Owner on here?

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1973-Datsun-240Z/293360329981?hash=item444da364fd:g:-7MAAOSwS5Rd5rBZ

    Just a bit concerned about the yellow foam on the top of the float chambers. There are normally pipes on there to the air filter. If the 'cut-off' needle fails the carb can flood and fuel pour out of those pipes ( in know from experience). You might think that the fuel wouldn't go uphill but it does because the pump supplies fuel quicker than it can disperse through the main jets. It's bad enough filling the air filter (by which time the problem is obvious) but if it spills all over the carbs and onto the exhaust it can be dangerous. Yes I know it has a small shield.

    Lovely looking car.

    Lovely car isn't it Rob. Seems 'cheap' at that price also.

    Not so sure about it weighing less than a ton.

    Agreed, between 1050 and 1100 at my reckoning.

    Really that light? I thought all over 1100.
