    Thumbs up For Sale but not on Ebay - my 260Z turbo special

    Avatar car located in Brisbane, '77 model coupe fitted with a FJ20DET engine and lots more, price $14,000, pics here http://members.optusnet.com.au/greenupr/gallery.html Details as follows.

    Engine

With bigger injectors this engine will produce ~300WHP.

    Transmission
    Nissan RB20DET gearbox; DCS modified pressure plate, Exedy clutch plate; 3.9:1 K case R180 differential with Amax ATB helical gear type LSD; heavy duty CV jointed half shafts. Improved limited movement gearbox and diff mounts.

    Suspension & Steering
    Front - adjustable coilover King springs, Koni racing separate double adjustable gas dampers, anti sway bar with strengthened mounts, spherical ball inner lower control arm joints, eccentric camber adjusters, heavy duty tension rods giving adjustable castor.
    Rear - adjustable coilover King springs, revalved Koni Yellow single adjustable dampers, anti sway bar with strengthened mounts, custom tubular lower control arms with rod ends enabling adjustable toe and camber. Poly steering coupler, bump steer adjustable, Ackermann enhanced steering arms.

    Brakes

    Rear - 295 x 15mm solid rotors, PBR sliding calipers with integral handbrake mechanism, braided flexible brake lines.

    General
    Ventilated fibreglass bonnet and hatch frame with acrylic glass; fibreglass front and rear spoilers, ZG flares, aluminium belly pan, bolted in half roll cage built to CAMS specs; Sparco race seat; RPM shoulder harness; adjustable shift light, boost gauge, oil temperature gauge, relocated battery with master switch.
    This car has been owned by me for ~9 years. Originally rusted parts of the body were cut out and new pieces welded in, the body was then painted in acrylic and rustproofed. The dash and instruments were restored. Except for some light damage in the left back bumper area the body has never been damaged. The car has always been garaged and has been developed over the years to be both a fun road car and a competent sealed circuit car with an emphasis on superb handling and excellent braking

    Over time virtually every moving part has been replaced with genuine or Japanese new parts. Both the diff and gearbox have had their bearings and seals replaced as a precaution, all wheel, suspension and steering moving parts have been replaced, only the tailshaft is an original item. The car has not been used much in between the occasional sprint at QR, except to attend the Nationals at Shepparton in 2005. Its a hobby car, not a daily driver, built to be utterly reliable and has never broken down.

    What with the 280ZX coupe project and two garage spaces for three cars, the 260 just has to go. It will not disappoint.

    Sorry to hear that the 260 has to go, but once you have that 280ZX going, you will be a happy man once again.
