My new 240k Hardtop

Recommended Posts


Is that you leavng the Hunt Nigel ?

No,

but one of the first things, (besides moving my running gear), will be to do flares, and wide wheels..

but that would come back to getting a coupe, getting flares, and finding wide watanabe clones.(superlite), with dish not offset

Hi Lenny, i picked it up from a deceased estate auction here in Adelaide.

Is your K a 2 or 4 door and what sort of condition is it in?

I'm not sure how many are around but you don't see them on the road anymore, i cant remember the last time i spotted a hardtop driving on the road.

Hey Laggy!

deceased estate...that would explain it..... absolute bargain matey! If only i had known...i'd surely have out bidded you LOL

Ur's in that condition is atleast 5-6k at a minimum! Absolute minter.

Mine is exactly like yours but a 73model. Straight as an arrow and only one spot of rust on the bottom left front guard. I'm needing a new paint job though, it's original but very faded.

Last time i saw one was 1988 and that was my old man'd mate.

ps why do u call it a hardtop? I know some had vinyl roof linings but they're still solid.

Nissan called the 2 door 240k's Hardtops so that's what i call them.

So you recently bought the faded silver auto 2 door off of ebay then?

If the quarter side glass rolls down, it's a hardtop. The reference comes from the top being rigid enough to support the glass and center framing structure of the unibody chassis without any solid pillars through the door and quarter window opennings, with or without any kind of vinyl trim.

If the car is a 2 door with fixed or pop out quarter side glass (a pillar in place), it is technically a coupe.

Very clean car!

Nice 240k I can't believe you found 1 like that around. I've not seen 1 like that in years. I hope I can find 1 like that one day.

I washed the 240 and took it for a drive to the beach today but didn't hang around long in case the sea air made it fall apart ;) i did get a couple of half decent pics though.

There are no crappy Commodores spoiling the pics this time. :cool:

swarf. Not a lot has changed, I had been using it until late last year and it's been running well.

Here are some pictures i took today of the inside for you.

No plans for the car in the immediate future really, for the moment it will stay as is.

I'm not happy with the paint and panel on it and would like to give it a ground up restoration one day but that wont be for a few years. A worked motor with Triple Webers would be nice as well.

It has been entered into AJD so you can check it out there.

You have a very beautiful car. I fell in love with this body style first time I saw it. Silver and black make it. Mighty fine ride you have.

I notice your wheels have changed. What are they? I like them. I'd put them on my Z if available and would fit. Very seldom do I see 5 spoke with 4 lugs. Again, nice car & wheels.

Bonzi Lon - The wheels are Bathurst Globes and are made in Australia, I cant see why they wouldn't fit a Z.

swarf. It would definitely be the standard colour if it gets a respray.
