    Hello chaps, I have had a 1972 RHD 240Z since February.

    Car had been dry stored since around 1997 so has taken some work to re commission it!

    Started with getting it fired up, the original coil went up in smoke, by passed the cars fuel system and changed the coil and cleaned the points and actually got it going! Only on 3 cylinders mind!

    Then went through everything fuel related and got it on all six and sounds great now! had to send the tank off to RE NU due to the ethanol and rust in the tank tried cleaning it out but couldn't just kept filling up the extra fuel filter I put straight out the tank!

    Went through the brakes changing most of the hard lines and fitted uprated rubber lines! Replaced the clutch master ,slave and hose!

    Got everything working and she is now MOTd, taxed and road legal.

    It will become for sale pretty soon as I need to fund my rallying!

    Welcome. Looks like a decent example. Can you share the registration number ( via PM if you wish). My cousin had an identical car which was sold over a decade ago and just wondering if it's the same one

    So basically you've come on to sell it, is that a fair comment?

    Would these have at a LSD in them? When I was using on the twisty Essex country lanes with a damp road it goes sideways really nicely.

    Yes rally a mk2 escort in the forest and a Peugeot 205 GTI on tarmac events.

    Would love to keep the 240z but I do not have enough space or time to continue with it. Now the weather is turning worse wont be able to use it much anyway. Will make someone a nice useable classic as it is, or if they want it mint as a show car a really good base. The car is solid with no rust issues, looks like it was undersealed well and kept in a dry garage which has saved it.

    Still have the 240, had the fuel tank restored by RENU Radiators up at Hartlepool I think they are, done a cracking job and would think that will out last the car now! Car has been on the back burner as been rallying but hoping got some time to get it all sorted in the new year and hopefully do some winter car meets!

    Might try and get up to Caffeine and Machine or the Lodge Coaches meet in Essex!
