1974 Datsun 260Z
Newly imported from California
Excellent restoration project
With the previous owner for 35 years hence 'pink slip' titled car in States
Early production series car (February '74)
The car has been stood/parked up for the last three years but it is in mostly very solid condition.
On passenger side the rear sill (dog leg) and front floor have some minor rust. However, the rest of the car is remarkably solid with no rust apparent in any of the usual areas seen on the Z with front chassis legs, doors, arches, spare wheel well and rear slam panel all in great shape making this an easy project.
2.8 litre L28 engine from a later model 280Z has been fitted at some point and is coupled to an auto box which if required can easily be swapped out for a 5 speed manual from the S30 range or later series cars. Engine turns over by hand but we have not yet put on a battery or tried to start.
Interior is complete but will need tidying
