  1. Looking for a 240Z

    Thanks all for the very good advice but....... I found a car some time ago on Ebay. Turned out to be very solid with very little rust, complete and original. It's number 509. I was fully aware that it needed a full restoration but that's what I was looking for. I did buy the car sight unseen , I know, a big, big no, no. I'm very pleased with the car and so far no surprises. I'm starting to tear the car down including glass and upholstery, pull the engine and have it rebuilt. Do what ever mechanicals it needs then send the shell to my friend who does excellent body and paint work. Then it's a matter of putting it back to together. I've done a few other cars like this ( I have 8 Studebakers). So, I will be very busy this winter in the garage. I can get around to send some pictures soon. Thanks again
  2. New Find.70 240Z

    I also just bought a 1970 Z, #509. Very complete unmolested. It has the same wheels as your white one but I was assuming those were aftermarket and thought the car originally came with regular wheels and hubcaps. Which is correct? p.s I'm new to the 240z community and have many questions.
  3. registry

    I'm new to the club and a recent 240Z owner. How do I get my car info on the registry?
  4. 14x6 Rims

    Just recently bought a 240Z with aftermarket wheels. Are these the right size for my Z? If so I'm interested in buying. ellagee@charter.net
  5. Looking for a 240Z

    When I originally posted , what I listed as the VIN # I found out was actually the engine #. Is there a source where I might be able to get the VIN # based on the engine #.
  6. Looking for a 240Z

    I'm looking to buy a 240Z and have been checking different web sites for a vehicle. I came upon this forum and hopefully someone can be of some help as to what I should be concerned about in finding a decent car. Secondly, I bought a brand new 1971 240Z when I was stationed in Okinawa. I had it shipped to Philadelphia when I was discharged. I recently came upon the original paperwork for the car, VIN L24-027948. It was the mustard-yellow color. Can someone tell be the correct paint code and name for that color? Is there a registry for the 240Z that I might, in a long shot, track down the original car? ellagee@charter.net

    To gwri8...... yes it was. but at this point in my life I'm more interested in getting the car back .... more dependable.

    Wow! Lot's of good information and certainly quick responses. I'm located in south central Michigan, close to the Indiana border but I'm willing to travel for the right car. I don't mind doing a little bit of work on a car but no major projects. I'm thinking that probably a $15,000 to $20,000 range is where I'm at. The car I had was the mustard - yellow color ( maybe someone here knows the correct color name or paint code) with a black interior. Sure wish I had the original VIN number, but that's long gone. Does anyone know if a car delivered to Okinawa would have a unique VIN or other identifying markings.
  10. New to the forum

    Just signed up to the forum. I'm starting to look to buy a 240z and would like some advice of what to look for. I bought a brand new 1971 240Z in Okinawa in the spring of 1971 for $2950.00, no sales tax, and had it shipped to the US for $125.00. My girlfriend ended up with the car way back then. I lost track of her and the car. I'd like to find the car.. Well maybe not that car but a similar one. What does a "series one" refer to? I came across that term recently in my search.
