    is there any way to look into these cars history? i am curious if the original color was red or the blue that is on the outside. it came with original 1970s blue and yellow plates and i know they dont have modern 17 digit vin but can i use that to find any info?

    I've uploaded couple pictures of the rear end where it look rock have been hit. The inner of the passenger side wheel well. Then the pass c pillar I took some 100 grit to it to a re who whens under he cracked paint and I think what's there's is not good. It looks to have the similarities on the driver side just not as bad. But it looks like the might have replace do the entire rear section? Isn't that thing!? Should I keep going with this rust bucket!!???

    Thank you guys for the responses! I was in the garage for a few hours earlier today so that I will be posting some more pictures. But I bought it about two weeks ago and I live in socal so that's a yes to the heat. I believe there might have been a hit from the back side the area where the exhaust tip comes out is damaged, and I can see what looks like bondo on the other side, I will post a picture of that shortly! And I appreciate you all pointing out these things that is why I brought my problem or project here! And the area by the tool storage I thought was interesting too, it's like a wave of wrinkles. But thank you guys for your input much appreciated!!!

    I uploaded some more photos. Some of the spare tire compartment, the dash with no dash, inner a pillar has some suspicious looking metal, as well as the c? Pillar on the outside almost looks like it could have been welded under the paint. So if you guys see anything bad or worry some or even want to give me pointers as to where to start first I'm all ears! Thank you guys again!

  12. hello hybridz! I've finally found my project z! I have some ideas in the direction I want to go but I'm not 100% set on every detail. i still have a lot of work to do before i can ever start making it a drivable car again. i bought it from a guy in chino ca that sells old cars. he had another one for sale but it seemed like even more work then this one. there is rust in the floor pans. it looks like it got repainted and has some serious surface rust but the frame rails looks solid, the battery tray looks good and the wheel arches are still in one piece. i know this will probably take me years because i want to do most of the work my self to learn and to save money. i work at a car fab shop so i have experience building cars and making things work that shouldn't but when it comes to the power train i will have to recruit my friends and local shops. i am really excited to get into my z and make this race car fun again. i know i don't know a lot about zs so if you guys see anything obvious or something that stands out please let me know! i am very open to opinion and critic. i appreciate all the knowledge here and can't wait to build this car with you all!! http://s38.photobucket.com/user/Datsun-240z/library/six%20post there are more pictures at the link in the photos is the door vin plate. i have one question, with the production date being 4/71 is it a 71 or 72? over all shot of the rust bucket as i bought it. third photo is the passenger side wheel well as seen from the interior, does any one have any idea as to what this could be? and last pic is just a shot of the frame rails.
