First, the obligatory "Hello"!!!

What a beauty, you have done very well in locating this awesome car. 721 would be most proud of this worthy successor.

Interesting to note your build date is two months prior to mine, yet a slightly higher VIN. We all know cars were pulled out of the line for various reasons, looks like mine is one of those situations.

Enjoy the ride!!!

I was about to ask Frank to check the Date Of Manufacture - Looks like #15368 should be 12/70. I could understand it being built a month or two later - but very odd to have one number two months earlier than the normal sequence.

#15189 is a Vintage Z with build date of 11/70... the highest VIN so far for 11/70..

Nonetheless very nice looking Z!!

FWIW,

Carl B.

I quoted the VIN from memory, Carl, and that device has shown to be faulty more frequently than ever. I'll double check today.

Hi Frank:

HLS30 15653 was last reported as having a Date Of Manufacturer of 12/70, with Original Engine serial number L24-021132. Your signature line still shows 10/70. Does the Data Plate on the drivers door jamb now show 10/70?

Well, crap. Not only is my memory going, but so is my eyesight! I just went out to photo the plate, and lo and behold it says 12/70. Another change coming to my sig block....

I know what you mean -- I've gone out to the garage to check on something, then when I got there I had forgotten what I went for in the first place - LOL Sorry to hear about the original engine - throwing a rod is not something we hear about too often. But then, it's not like you don't already have a good replacement...

Great looking Z...

FWIW,

Frank,

Congratulations. The car looks awesome. Great color combination. Just curious as I can't tell from the pictures, what color are the side stripe? Did you polish the wheels to that level or did the previous owner. They look sweeet

Good luck with your newest family member :)

I have been  the owner  of this 240z for the past 3 years. I've made some improvements to the car and its a joy to own. 

I ended up buying it's older vin twin (1 vin lower) a few years later and had them together in the garage. That was a cool thing to see.

Full Brand New Fujitsubo Headers and exhaust system.

Brand New Old Stock 40PHH Mikuni Triple Carbs

Brand New set of Watanabe Wheels

Some New Old Stock OEM parts throughout the car.

 

Here are some pictures of it now.
