    Default Expressions of interest - Datsun 240K coupe

    Hi all,

    I will be selling my 240K coupe soon, I've had offers for a couple of projects with other model cars that I've found very hard to resist and I've given in.

    Over the last week I've come to grips with what it will be like without a Datto, but I've had a very good run; been fortunate enough to own 3 coupes and 3 sedans in the last 10 years. All have served proudly. They'll be fondly remembered, and so will the legendary stories; nothing better than someone asking "is that a bloody Datsun?" or "your Datsun did that?".

    Anyway, enough of the sentiments, I'm posting here so you guys or anyone you know can express an interest in the car before it officially goes up for sale. Note; IT WILL BE FOR SALE.

    Every single spare part that I have for this car will be sold with the car so it's an ideal purchase for the enthusiast.

    Details below;

    No reg/RWC
    (won't be much anyway, car was built early this year!)
    1975 Datsun 240K coupe
    Paint; metallic blue/green, black bonnet
    2.4 litre 6 cylinder, 3 speed auto, 3.54:1 R180 diff.
    New timing chain, guides, front/rear seals, gaskets, etc 6 months old.
    240Z carburettors
    Extractors
    E88 late model head, shaved .030" C/R 9.2:1 approx.
    Electronic ignition
    280ZX series 2 alloys, 225 rear tyres/195 front.
    Original interior, tidy.

    Spares;
    L28 complete bottom end Exc cond
    L28 N42 head Exc cond
    C110 GTR flares
    280ZX 5 speed recently purchased
    Clutches, flywheels, etc, all Exc cond.
    Timing chains, guides, pulleys, etc.
    2 x elec dizzy and coils - tested, A1 cond.
    Struts and brakes GC
    H/D rear springs/H/D rear shocks, like new.
    Oil pumps/ front covers/
    Alternators
    Starter motors
    Original steering wheel - cleaned/varnished Exc cond
    Front left and right fenders; need rust repairs
    Front indicator/park lenses
    Front lights + assemblies
    Front and rear bumpers
    Front grille, A1 original
    Interior kick panels GC
    Centre console good intact except for slight crack
    Badges, trim, etc etc.

    RE L28 motor and g'box; all that would be required is assembly of the engine (all parts available), bolt up gearbox and you are set to go. This engine is A1, never missed a beat and is very reliable. I estimate it's only done 100,000 klms for myself, was originally bought at the importers from Japan with low mileage.

    All spares are in 'very good to excellent condition', especially engine/electrical components (had to collect and keep, they're getting harder to find).

    Price; $2500 the lot. PRICE IS FIRM and very, very reasonable for all these items, including the car!

    See pics below or my gallery to view.

    I can be contacted on my numbers below if you're interested.

    I'm located in Sth East Melbourne (Australia for you O/S fellas).

    If someone outside of this site buys it, can you please mention the site to them? That'd be great. Also, you have a PM.

    That's horrible news, but I guess, such is life.

    Just make sure you hang around and keep tabs on us other guys.

    G'day,

    I may be interested in purchasing your 240K. However, I am located in Sydney. Could you post some more high resolution photos?

    Hi guys,

    What's happened to this site??? I haven't been able to get in for a couple of weeks, as though it disappeared!

    Only this morning I recieved email notification of replies posted to my threads, anyone else experience this??

    I have news; the car is sold, apologies to anyone out there who's been waiting for me to appear over the last couple of weeks but as I said, I wasn't able to access the site. Weird?!

    Do we have any other new 240K people on board?
