White Datsun 240z (Sold)


LHSVery is an original untouched Datsun 240z with all original paint. Although its worn off in a few places. Virtually no rust with the only bits being in the drivers door shut, under the ali trim and a very small hole around the access holes in the drivers floor. Superb panel fit and gaps plus extremely flat panels all over. This is going to be a very easy restoration.

Started working on this car a couple of weeks ago and made a fair bit of progress. Stripped the floors back to the original white paint, which is in near perfect condition over most of the underside. I’ve removed the few sections of surface rust I found and primed/sealed any bare metal. The engine/box are now out and the engine bay stripped and getting ready for paint. I’m planning to get the shell ready to paint in January so I need to get my finger out. The interior is stripped but I will only be painting the floors inside as all the rest of the paint is ingreat condition. The underside will all be sealed with stonechip before the painter gets to see it.

 

Future plans for the car:

Full restoration with a stripped shell repaint in the original white. Full overhaul of the suspension and brakes with all parts refinished. Minor mods to improve the handling and looks of a road biased car. The aim, as with most of the cars, is to create a superb original looking car that can be fully used without fear of it being effected by the UK weather.
