I've had a few z's in the past and always fixed them up, made them run and look nice and had to eventually sell them due to random reasons. But now, I feel I've landed myself a keeper! Saw an add on Craigslist for a 71 shell and after a long wait period to hear from the seller we finally struck a deal and head out to pick it up in the middle of nowhere. To say the least, upon arrival the car had absolutely NOTHING in it. And by nothing I mean NOTHING. No mechanical, no brake or fuel lines, no interior no hatch, no windows ... heck, the owner had to Wire the suspension and instead of bolts ran steel wires in between holes (spindle, control arms, etc) just to get it in all fours, which made a huge of a difference when it came to load on to flat bed. While almost no bolts were even provided, To my surprise, the owner had a fair amount of the original parts in a small trailer ready to piece together and threw everything in for free!. The original hatch had miraculously somehow flown off when he previously transported the car home and thus far car's still hatch less. The following day while making a list of the missing parts and further inspection I came to realize the car is actually a 7/1970 car! ^O_O^ After settling down for a few days I found out the car was owned by a member here and got some cool pics and info about the cars history. Found that while the car was very rust free it's definitely had its fun and abuse at the track. Regardless, I got the empty shell for a good price and a positive open mind with hopes of giving this girl new life and a new future far far away from either junkyard and or smasher. I'll be posting some pics of my lady soon. For now, for sure I know I'll be running a 2JZ-GTE power plant & 6speed supra Trans with Z31 finned clsd/CV rear end. Pending the sale of my IS300 to fund the project. For now, let the parts search begin!
I am located in San Diego, California. Just picked up an amazingly clean and taken care of 1970 complete shell. Long story short it came with almost nothing for the Interior but wiring harness. In addition the hatch somehow flew off as the previous owner transported it. So I bought it as is. Currently in search of cosmetics for it. - Series One hatch (with vents and vertical defrosting lines) - VENTED 76-78 280z hood (with vents attached) - set of tail lights (with bulbs & pigtails if possible) - dashboard - center console - ZG flares In addition to the previous short list. I realized after further inspection and cleaning that the cars suspension and underbelly was pieced together and held mostly by steel zip ties basically just enough to load on to the flat bed and transportation but overall it's missing a ton of various bolts. So basically if someone has a spare bucket full of datsun bolts and nuts that are for these cars that Include but not limited to (Control arms, tie rods, corner lights, fenders, bumpers, spindles, interior misc) they're willing to part with please do contact me as I made the mistake of leaving my huge huge protein bottle full of Z bolts and nuts on my last sold car. #EpicFail.
