    Hey everyone came across the site via a google search seams like a lot of info here so I've decided to join
    Myself and my Girlfriends father decided to buy one of our dream projects inJanuary of this year a 1976 Datsun 260 z 2+2 and we are currently in the slow tough process of restoring her.
    The car is an original 5 speed Manual 2.6 L26 RHD Irish/uk spec model but is in a troubled state as there is much rust and lots of work to do
    We have restored many cars together before but this one I'm looking forward to the most as its one of my dream cars to own since I first saw one.
    Heres some pics of the car from the day of purchase back in January,lots has happened since then but maybe I will start a restoration thread on here and keep you guys updated

    Welcome and good luck,
    Restored a 2+2 about 3 years ago, parts are hard to get!
    It will need a lot of fabrication but anything is possible!!:thumbs:

    Welcome to ZClub. Nice to see another 2+2 owner.

    I doesn't look as bad as some I have seen. Does it run? A lot of the rust seems to be superficial on your pics so where is the major stuff? What is the interior like e.g seats etc?

    As far as parts go, they are generally more difficult to get hold of than the 2 seaters but not impossible. Panels may be your biggest problem especially the rear quarters.

    Mike Feeney at MJP auto can get a lot of what you might need and there are other parts places in the States such as Black Dragon or Z Car Source.

    Good luck. It will be worth it in the end!
