26th-Z

Early Hood Differences

Recommended Posts

I replaced the hood on 26th in 1990 without noticing the differences. The original hood had been bashed and a new hood from Datsun was cheap. It is just like the blue one I posted. Seems like a 3rd production Kats mentions. Funny, the part number doesn't change..65100-E4100

Just for grins, the part number for the PZR hood in FRP is 65100-E7200

Sometimes, I don't like what I find here on the site.

Looks like my hood must have been replaced at some point. It's a #3 hood with the reinforcements, and holes. Doesn't seem to jive with the build date of 02/70, so it must be newer.

My 12/70 #15721 has a #2 hood, reinforced corners, no holes beside hood release and angled release lever.

My 07/70 has an early hood as well, No drain holes, no reinforced corners. And I am sure that it had a flat hood release, but I mixed up my parts when I was putting it back on which means zKars has it in his parts pile now.

This new listing, a '73 240Z, on BAT seems to have different style of hood, not previously discussed here. It has corner reinforcements without holes/with angled hood release handle. This '73 is a very nice original example that is going for strong money after one day,

Here's a pic of the hood.

Edit,  My mistake this hood is a #2 production as described by @kats in post #13.   @Mike B's '72 has this same hood, post #12 of this topic from Aug '07

Hi , I forgot to report this , I found this car for sale in June 2017 in Japan . 

09/1970 on the door jam tag .

This car has an early bonnet which looks to be origin to this car but , the edge of the bonnet doesn’t have a small tab which can be seen in the one from 69- 1970 early.

So , this could be the second bonnet , no holes / no reinforcements , no tabs . 

I enjoyed discovering this car’s condition, many original parts still there . It was a fun to look at various type of “ date” markings are corresponding.  The seat belt 8 /1970  , the tool’s contents paper “ 45 .  9. 10 “ September 10th 1970 )  , even the wiring harness showing 70.  9. (September 1970 ) and , I see the jack has corresponding date “ P  H  Y “ ( 1970 August 25th ) .

Someone has to rescue this car , still sitting outside of the shop . 

Sorry I wrote to many things , just I wanted to give some information  of the date to see when this betweenness was applied from and up to .

Hi Patcon , if it is cheap, I would buy it . But currently 3.5 million JPY ( 32000 USD )  is the price .I can’t afford it.

I totally understand. That's a lot of money for a complete project!
