    Hi guys I am wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction.

    I am hoping to get a date of manufacture on an Imported Datsun 140z

    Bit of a rate one but a Z-car none the less apparently.

    Any help would be appreciated thanks guys

    Its a mega cool car.

    The dating is suppose to be for 'members only' however it'd be worth asking if the club can date such a unique car for you.... Might not be able to.

    Very much doubt the club can date a car assembled in South Africa either way and the old Rosslyn factory records will have gone up in smoke long ago.

    Ask whomever you bought it from (assume the importer ?) to supply you with the original police clearance certificate issued when the car was exported.
    You will be able to use that to register at DVLA in lieu of the missing SA registration document.

    The 140z is a "south africa" only model , whereby Nissan ZA took a base B210 (120Y) and jazzed it up for local domestic market. I doubt that anyone outside south africa can help you with "dating" . These cars were locally assembled and so all supporting production records etc will be retained locally in SA in my opinion.

    Can I ask why you need the date of manufacture? Is it for road tax free status ?

    EDIT; just seen Chris's post above and yep, agree what he says. The police clearance certificate should assist, assuming there is one :D
