my 240k over in Perth

Sign in to follow this  


Hi all' date=' thought I would share my 240k story and pictures with you.

I was already an owner of a 180b when some months back I was casually looking for anything for sale under Datsun and came across the below car for sale. I had no real intention of purchasing the car but just wanted to take it for a drive more than anything, so spoke to the seller and arranged a time to see the car. I made the good move of taking my wife along with me when I did the visit.

when I got next to the car I knew that I had to have it, it was a one owner car and immaculate in everyway. The story was that the first and only owner bought the car as a retirement present for himself and was only ever his weekend car and was always garaged and even had a car cover on it in the garage. He would never drive it if it looked liked rain and it had full service history for every service it had ever had. He sadly passed away into his 90's and so was being sold by his daughter in law.

I got my wife In the car and away we went for a drive in her. When we got back to the sellers house my wife turned to me and said, we should get this car, which I didn't need her to tell me twice. They agreed to not sell it to anyone so we could have a think about it.

The next day we did another test drive and the deal was done. The sellers are such a nice family they kept the car in their carport for me until i could sell my 180b to make room for the K.

We even keep in touch with them still as they like to know how the K is going, which is nice as this shows how much they valued this car being in the family as it was for over 30 years.

Since getting her all I have done is a wash and T cut and a wax, and added the rear venetians, everything else is as it was when I purchased her. I still have the original car cover he used to use to cover it up in the garage as well.

The car seats are such a 70's thing that when I go to car shows In her everyone comments on the seats !

here are some pictures of the K


I would like to buy such a car

I hope Buy
