Hey all, 

just about to start digging into my 240z so this will be the start of my build thread. Might take some time but feel free to follow along as I go.  


Anyways it’s a 1971 240z which appears to all be there minus the steering wheel. The car has lived its life in California and has been sitting under a tree since 2002. There’s some minor rust spots on the back hatch but otherwise seems to be pretty solid. Has the original L24 but I may end up swapping it out for something different, SR20det, RB25det, 1Jz, LS. Not sure yet. Going for a track car look mostly just for fun. There’s a lot of fun canyons here in Southern California I enjoy driving and I really want to build the car as a fun toy I can hold on to forever. 


Attached are the starting pictures. I’ll try and update as much as I can.

Removed her from her final resting spot for good yesterday, Started tearing out unnecessary items and going through what needs to be replaced/ cleaning up dirt and leaves to see what I got myself into. I noted the coolant sitting in the car all these years corroded most of the cooling system components and all will need to be replaced.
