Hi all, I thought it was about time I started a thread on my car that is currently in a container, heading from Adelaide to the UK. Before we get to the 240, and as a bit of back ground, at the beginning of this year I sold my Wide Arch 300ZX. After 1o years of ownership it was a difficult decision to reach, but once I had written the sales advert, the excitement of the next car/project set in. Spooky.... The new owner of the 300 also owns two 240Z, one of which was built by MZR. Having no real hankering for the next car/project, I toyed with going back to TVR, maybe a kit car, Holden, or even something more modern like a Lexus ISF. One evening in a pub discussing the 'next car' with my son, he asked me if I had considered a 240Z. He has always liked the 240Z, ever since seeing them at shows that we had attended over the years, and even when he was looking for his 2nd car, he fancied one, but couldn't afford one at 19 years of age. After lots more discussions,, (and visits to the pub) we decided we would jointly take the plunge into 240z ownership. We both wanted a RHD 240, soon after realising that any UK RHD cars were very thin on the ground (literally) or finished projects, were out of our budget. One evening I came across a couple of For Sale adverts on an Australian owners club site, for two 240Z in various states of finish. After many emails and photos between the two owners, we decided to go with a '72 model, that was being sold by a guy who had the car for 8/9 years, but just didn't have the time to finish the car off. Having never imported a car before, the process at first was a little daunting, what was more worrying however, was how the hell would we carry out the financial side of things, with no intermediary. So here it is........... be kind guys. This first photo is, before she went to primer with the PO owner, about 2010. The car has been in primer for many years, and has been stored in the garage all of the time. There was some rust on the sill, which has been badly repaired sometime ago. There are many more photos, including the floor from the inside. The floor was stripped bare by the previous owner and treated and the protected with POR15. But we haven't seen the underside of the vehicle. We have taken a huge risk that the car isn't a rusty nightmare underneath, as neither of us can weld, so the first thing we will be doing is getting the car in the air and having a good look at it. It has a RB25DET engine, which isn't running. RB20DET gearbox, but it's not connected to the diff. Rear brakes are 28o, fronts have been swapped with Toyota units. Fuel tank isn't fitted, and the RB was running before the swap, but has never been commisioned. Rear hatch has had the lock barrel removed and filled in, as the PO owner was going to fit solenoids to everything. It also comes with a myriad of new parts, for the engine, water pump, new coil packs, door rubbers, light units etc. As for future plans, once we know what we have let ourselves in for. We want to add a turbo running on a Haltech ECU, with flared arches. I couldn't resist Sekioking Wats. that he had for sale the other month, so the black wheels will be going sometime. Anyway that's it for now, I am sure I will have plenty of questions in the coming months/years! I will update the thread with more photos of the underside, when she arrives at the beginning of July. Fingers crossed.
