    Hi guys ,Im glad I've found a 240k site! just dragged this 73 home , itching to get started but have to finish another resto first (has to be ready by march 2014).Will be lurking around here trying to learn as much a possible . Lots of great info and thankyou for all the tech and where to buy what contributions.
    The long term plan is GTR clone but i must say the rear 1/4 cut is final!
    The 240 k needs a total resto , rust in sills, rear 1/4 ,boot is gone and bonnet isn't much better.Its auto complete and drove on and off the trailer.The original color is a silvery blue/ purple tinge (got to find and learn to identify codes) 3/73 year model which makes it the same vintage as me.
    Living on the Sunny Coast Qld
    Cheers Des

    Let us know what the colour number is and we can tell you what it should be.

    Saw this on FB page last night, looked really good in those photos. these ones not so much.

    Why do you need it ready so soon?

    My first C110 sedan was that bluey colour( back when they where worth nothing) can't remember what year it was but it did have a 4 speed manual. Did you have to travel far to find this one?

    Not sure about the sweaty nanna but one of my biggest memories sitting in my grandads c110 was the smell. Sitting in mine now takes me right back. That's what its all about I guess.

    You're engine number is located on the left hand side of the block just below where the head bolts on......should match the number on the Datsun plate you linked earlier. L24-1545?? something something hahaha

    Interesting, looks like you've got a Japanese SWB 'belt-buckle' grill on it
