Seller's Comment

This 1973 Datsun 240Z has been restored over the last 10+ years. The restoration was a back-to-metal restoration with the only part not coming off the car being the diff. The intent of the restoration was to keep the car as original as possible. Where I could, I would clean or repair the original parts. Otherwise, I would source the parts from Nissan if they had them and if not, reproductions were used. All of the restoration work was completed by myself and father other than the exhaust system, seats and final top coats.

There are a few things that I have not kept stock. These are retractable seat belts, relay switched headlights, radio and extractors/exhaust system.

This Z has matching numbers and although I am selling it without registraion or RWC, the original number plates have been personalised and will be part of the sale of the vehicle.

Since being restored and returned back to the road, it has seen very limited travel, only being driven once or twice a year. Otherwise, the vehicle has been garaged. I have listed the odometer as it reads, but it is in miles, not kilometers. The odometer only has 5 digits and I am sure that it has already clocked over before I purchased the car.

I have kept a blog of the restoration with many photos of the work that has been performed. http://240z.drago.com.au/ There is also a gallery of photos taken during the course of the restoration and a list of parts that were purchased.
