    Hi folks

    I have a 1970 240Z that I had imported from US 20 years ago and was in dry storage until recently. It came with huge after market wheels, which I now wish to replace with original wheels. Any idea where I can get them from? Please see picture.

    Also, the car needs re commissioning - any suggestions for a reliable specialist?

    Your car looks to be the later 240 version like 71-72 (blue car). The Safari Gold car is a 70 with the "D" hubcaps.
    Which wheels and caps are you looking for ???? IMG_0266.jpg IMG_6649.jpg

    Yep, as Mike says, a later car so series 2 or 3, if there is such a thing.

    Original (factory-fitted) wheels on a 1970 HLS30U model Datsun 240Z would have been 4.5j x 14" pressed steel wheels made by TOPY (date stamped at manufacture) covered with 'D' emblemed pressed steel hubcaps, as in attached photo.

    Both are now highly sought after, and $$$$...

    Depends on your location of course, but I'd personally recommend FOURWAYS ENGINEERING in Borough Green Kent. They have a long history with these cars, and many spare parts.

    Hi Mike
    You are correct. It is a 1971 manufactured car.

    Not Wolfrace, but the original factory fitted ones.

    Original Factory fitment was steel TOPY wheels and hubcaps. They left the factory wearing the steel wheels and the hubcaps were in a cardboard box in the rear deck area.

    USA/Canada dealers sometimes fitted aftermarket alloy wheels to the cars - topping up their profits - but they were not an official Nissan/Datsun product.
