Posted by Our Friend Kats in a different thread, but I think a find like this deserves it's own tread.

Hi,
just information,Mr.Harigae found and bought S30-00002.The car is almost unable to restore but very interesting to look at it.
If I have a chance to see it,I would like to see a wiring harness and check date on the decal, I guess S30-00002 was born in June or July 1969.

I dont think its too bad to restore. Looks straight, apart from the roof, and maybe some rust, but definatly reparable.

Dont let this car die!

It's a shame that the engine appears to be gone.

Wow... #2, huh? I feel like I should be bowing in its presence...
Most impressive that it is in private hands rather than the factory's...
Can't even imagine how much money was traded for this one... wow
Thanks for sharing the pic.

Where is the other thread? I can't find it.

Edit: never mind. For some reason searching for the text you copied didn't produce the result.

Looks to be another S30 behind the orange one. Sad but I too bow before it. Very sad.

As unfortunate as it may be, if you want to vintage race, go Euro....If you want to race for real, stick with the Z!

She doesn't look like she rolled.
I wonder if a tree fell on her... and if it made a sound...

I agree with Mr. Camouflage. Like any project, it's simply a matter of time, effort and money to fix this car, #2. As an amatuer body man, I'd love to test my skills on that roof! Nothing a little hammer & dolly work couldn't fix, by the look of it. If not, then another roof from a suitable donor could be sectioned in along the factory welds/seams.

It's not apparent from the photo, but #2 doesn't appear to have any major front end or side impact damage. Hopefully not too much rust anywhere, either. What a diamond in the rough!

I am not worthy!

Are those bullet holes on the side of the car? I wonder if the data plate is still there? Too bad about the engine........ well, I agree with the rest of you, the car needs to be restored.

Wow, what a find. Would this be the oldest S30 [albeit shell], in existance.
Now I know how Howard Carter felt.......

This is excellent. I've heard the HS30 and HLS30 #1-3 cars were melted down at the factory never to see day again.
Obviously S30 0002 was a different story.
Definately fixable.

Maybe we could make a T-shirt saying "Save S30 #2" just like the "Save Ferris" T-Shirts all proceeds could go toward restoring this beauty. This car simply has too much history and too much a pedigree to not be restored. Since the S30 is one of the most important cars in Automotive History. :classic:

Great Thread!

Thank you Mr Camouflage,and everyone

Mr.Harigae will difinetly be happy to see this site,and I am very surprised because so many people think it is restorable.Mr.Harigae is not like ordinaly japanese Z car mania,he will restore it.He think he can do it,so he bought it I think.

He showed me so many photo of it,I notice some points.
#1 the car have different years seats and uphostly,so it was used quite often and seems there were a few owners kept driving and enjoying it some around 10 years ago.

Thank you,

kats

Any idea if it is 110 Red or 918 Orange? It's difficult to tell but I'm leaning more toward red. Thanks for the picture Kats. We would all love to see more.

Kat's is there any chance of more photo's?
I noticed in the top photo, the VIN Plate is still attached to the strut tower. Can you get a shot of this and post to this thread.

Data plate is still on the drivers side (now remember this it a right hand drive car) suspension tower. Its that grey square thing you can see. I dont think the Japanese versions had the one in the door frame. Aussie cars didnt. Think it was a US law requirement, just like the vin being on the dash for all to see.
