Orange Datsun 260z – Now Sold


IMG_1039I imported this Datsun 260z from Washington but it has spent all its life in sunny California. Very original car with no signs or rust or accident repairs. It has been repainted in its original 918 orange a few years ago. It’s now UK registered and MOT’ed. Engine is extremely quite and runs very well. I bought this car as a daily runabout and for ease of driving, chose an automatic. The car has lots of new parts concluding: front dampers, rear drums, cylinders and shoes, trackrod ends, balljoints, rack bushes, and door/hatch weather seals. I’ve also put some retro chrome doors mirrors on the car since this picture was taken. The interior is good apart from a small split on a seam of the drivers seat, some cracks in the dash from the Cali sun, and cracks in the center console. Drives, stops and handles very well and I drive it as much as possible. Paint is not perfect but the car does still look really good.
I’ve a few jobs still to do on the car which I will get around to when I stop driving it. The engine sump has a leaking gasket as does the gearbox pan. I also want to get the underside wax-oiled to keep it in the condition it is. May even convert it to manual if someone is interested in buying it but the price would go up. I’m not in any hurry to sell any of these zeds but I would be open to offers on this along with a few of the others I have.
