It's time to make room.....

Recommended Posts

Alright guys. I guess I could scour the boards to see if I can meet peoples needs but that is time way too time consuming.

I probably have 14 Z cars in my house in parts alone not to mention the addition to the 4 in the shop. Of the cars I have parted out, I saved everything that was useable because well, I hoarded it. Someone will need it. Maybe me was my thoughts since I wasn't sure where I was going with the Zthing. I've been into the cars for 19 years now.

If there is an interest from fellow club members on parts I will be happy to go through what I have and make a list of what is available and what condition everything is in. Perhaps you have a broken door latch or missing interior piece. maybe you need the luggage straps for the rear deck or you snapped a stub axle at the track.

I do not want to deal with evilbay and the weed out the non paying dingdongs that wish to be a time burglar to me. It can stay on the shelves as far as I'm concerned. There's no rush on any of this stuff as I'm not in a bad way but it's time to pass on the more than I will ever need, furthermore I'm not looking for top dollar. Large items woul be expensive to ship such as steering racks, rears (I have several R180 and R200's), halfshafts, driveshafts...etc.

My main goal is to make some room in my shop, keep what I am going to need for my Z projects and perhaps help some people out. I have a 74 260 and 78280 I'm not sure what I'm doing with.

Unfortunately my inventory is more towards 260 and 280. I got rid of most of my 240 stuff a long time ago. I might have a parts dash laying around.

In any event.....Thats my rant :D

^^^ Any red interior body panels by chance. The pass. side, rear, the one that covers the fuel hoses etc...

I had opened the rear hatch and the panel got moved an I closed the hatch on it. Breaking the bottom of it a little. #$@#$@#*... :)

I doubt it based on his comment above. I have a set of used red plastic panels and vinyl in storage, but I would rather sell them as a set or at least all the panels together. PM me if you are interested.

Any chance you have a fuse box / ashtray cover for a '71 240? I know you said you were shy on 240 parts, but I thought I'd ask. Thx, Will

Let's see....Red interior I don't have......I got rid of that last year from a 73 240..Butterscoth I have 3 full interiors coupe and 1 2+2. Any 2+2 guys?? Mint back seats!! Black only though.

Door scuff panels yes. Early or late. Early have datsun stamped on them. Late do not. I have both.

fuse box/ash tray cover...that's possible considering I have one 240 dash left...that's a box to check in the attic.

Automatic converting to manual please chime in. I have MANY pedal clusters!

I'm looking for parts for a 71 240z built in 4/71 I know your post stated your limited in parts for 240z, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

On the ash tray/ fuse box I would also be interested,

also the heater control panel,

what year is the dash and condition,

thermostat housing and fasteners,

the coolant out take and steel hose that goes around back,

the correct engine hoist brackets, I think I have everyone, but my year,

rear Supper Sprint muffler/resonator

rubber blocks for holding the brake lines

bottom seat foam

rubber stabilizer bushings

steering rack bushing

upper strut tower bushings

Nissan weather striping for the door

By chance did you keep factory fasteners?

I have one you want the door that the defrost switch is on? I will pull it off the car. Insurance company is going to send it to auction anyway. I already stole the shift knob for my buddy that I got the car from. It was the last car his father had owned before he passed.

On 70-71 240z the ash tray sits over top the fuses with the cigarette lighter. these plastic ashtrays are very brittle and are rare (compared to how many people need them). I had a 72 with the defroster switch in the door, and the ashtray was moved to the center of the console, a much better layout.

I think some lists might help of what people are looking for the Datsun classifieds have not worked well for my start of parts clearing, I don't ever have 1/10 of the parts that don't match my car listed that I have. Honestly when I listed to make an offer make it, when you ask me how much I look online for what everyone else is selling for. Just make it somewhat reasonable or they will go on eBay I wanted to open first dibs to this group because these are the people that help me out. I don't want eBay prices they are over inflated if you ask me. If they don't sell on eBay or hear I'll scrap or throw it out. It is costing me to much room now.

If you see something I might want let me know, I'm very open to trade I'm restoring a car mine that I'm restoring in a 4/71 production.

I'm going to post a L28 JE Piston kit with other parts like springs, intake valves . . .

A splash pan for a later year Z it was sold to me as a 71 pan but it don't match up so it is a later year it looks like 9/74 and later

I am in desperate need of the brake line holders as well (The rubber blocks). Also the small black piece that goes on top of a series 1 ash tray cover lid.

Please let me know if you or anyone has any.

Also, I have a unused front windshield rubber still in package (black dragon I think) if anyone needs, or would gladly trade for brake line holders or ash tray piece.

Thanks all,

Merry Christmas.

Jim Frederick sells repro sets of the rubber fuel/brake line blocks. Email him at jim240z@aol.com.

Curious if you have any black interior trim pieces for a 260Z or 280Z including door panels, arm rests, th inside part of the glove box (i have the door already) and the plastic trim panels that cover the shock towers. Are they vinyl or plastic? I am not sure because my current car has a welded in roll cage that I am going to remove. I literally have no trunk space with that damn thing.

This is what I am dealing with. I will be cutting the cage out and installing the trim pieces.

If you have a lower front valance, the piece between the head lamps and beneath the grill that connects the corner bodywork with as many decent connecting points as possible I would be interested. I will even pay the shipping cost. The original one was damaged beyond repair when some knuckleheaded tow truck driver towed it many moons ago. Reply at edtwomuchz@gmail.com. THANX

I do not need the aluminium sills, mine are ok I need the black "scuff plate" that resides over the door weather stripping, it seems they are not available for the 280s only 240's and 60's

alright guys. Just getting in from work and made a list of the things you are requesting. Gotta bounce between attic, basement and outbuilding number 2 to see what condition things are in. however off of the top of my head

grantf.....Yes I do have these. I need to check on their condition. Are yours missing or are you looking for nicer upgrades? These tend to get pretty beat up.

padam07...Yes I do have some interior bits in black. I'll put them on the list to check when I am in the interior section. I have butterscotch as well.

esmit08...lower valance I know I have atleast three of these.

stevej....door panels....have to check how many black ones I have.

Mally002....brake line blocks. Yes I have these. let me see how many. be interested in a trade for the weatherstripping??

I've had requests from 2 members regarding 5 speed tranny's. I have both 5 and 4 speeds. I have no idea what it would cost to ship that. I'm in new jersey and one request was from colorado, the other from arizona. Also I may need to think about these as well. I have two of each, I may hold onto them for future projects.

Also, if memory serves me well, aren't there and "A" and "B" on the five speeds? Thought maybe the differance was in the speedo gear?

Be back in a bit.

For the heavier items like transmissions, you might be able to ship via Greyhound. I've read many posts over at Zcar.com suggesting that.

Thanks for looking, I did order some blocks via Mike's post but wouldn't mind having some spares. Would be happy to ship out the windshield rubber in trade if you still need it so just shoot me a PM with your address.

Thanks again,

Randy

If you have the lower panel that goes underneath the glove box I would like one, black preferably. It covers up the blower motor, mine was cracked and held on by duct tape so I trashed it. PM me if you have one.

thanks
