  1. What is This?

    Good man, thanks. After searching just now they call it an N36 balance tube. Looking at the pic below is there any benefit to using this over the stock 240?
  2. What is This?

    Recently purchased a vintage race car with an upper intake part that doesn't look like my other 240Z. The car runs but I want to replace it due to damage. Has anyone seen this part before? Thanks in advance for the help. Born a Datsun dealer, Breyley's Datsun sponsored race car that raced with Bob Sharp 3-11-1974 at US Champions Road Atlanta [CP] Car 11 Jim Bennett, http://wsrp.wz.cz/natus1974.html , didn't do well at all but still cool and more reason to bring her back from the dead. Also had some Speedvision TV time in 1999.

  4. 1972 240Z Race Car Build

    OK, I know its been almost 2 years. We all know how life gets in the way so don't be a hater. I found this car by chance last week on Racing Junk with the title "yes". I called the guy up and negotiated a deal to deliver the car to Houston, TX for 3K total. He delivered it Saturday. I know, you are thinking, what happened to the build? Well, this particular car raced at Road Atlanta 03-11-74 with Bob Sharp. OK, so it only ran 3 laps and had a DNF, but that is "some" heritage" right? Either way its a real SCCA GT2 race car and born that way. It was taken from the dealership and converted from A 1970 240z. She is a little rough around the edges but has a 200+ HP motor and runs. Rare one piece JC Whitney fiberglass flip front end. The plan is still the plan, just not the same donor car. We will be using this one and starting this weekend by removing the roller wheels and installing the ones listed above. Progress and pics will follow.
  5. 1972 240Z Race Car Build

    Scored a good haul this past weekend in San Antonio, TX. It paid off searching every night. Updated parts list above. It's blistering HOT in Houston at this time so not much progress on stripping the car. Stay tuned........

    Tokico Illumina on national back order even after claims they were available at the Z Store. Replaced with Koni.
  8. My first Z and... Hello

    That all depends on how much time and patience you have. I just bought a set of floors and rails shipped to the door this week for $398.00. This is a reputable source for quality and fitment. http://www.datsunzparts.com/
  9. My first Z and... Hello

    Nice one. 1970 with some characteristics only made that year is desireable among enthusiasts. Best thing to do is find a donor car (easier said than done) to cut replacement metal off for your car. Search 240z forum in Google and start posting WTB in the parts sections. You will find that a lot of Z lovers are more than willing to help you to see it brought back to life. Welcome and good luck.
  10. Bought a 1972 240Z a week a go in Dallas, TX for $500.00 complete. No title or keys. It might run but haven't had time to get started. Typical rust and neglect that is unfortunate with these cars. Already racing in Chumpcar, Lemons and WRL series with the blue 1973 240Z pictured below. Still tweaking it but have worked through most everything. Building the 1972 using the same components. This should give everyone an idea of what it costs start to finish. I know I could find one finished for less (maybe that one that pops up twice a year at the right price) but want to complete this with proven results from the current car. Don't hate me for not being that DIY guy for every part of the build. I will get my hands dirty but am very busy at work and some things are better left to the pros. +++ONCE THE CAR IS STRIPPED COMPLETELY I WILL BE LISTING ALL THE PARTS FOR SALE+++ Let the project begin.....................
