New member, new 240K Sedan

Recommended Posts

Awesome find mate

I'm in Perth and have been looking for a 240K coupe for years with no luck.

But if I came apon a sedan like that I'd be all over it.

If anyone sees one for sale around the place I'd be keen.

Had a couple when they were near new...wish i had kept them.

Giving away my age but had 3 near new 77 240K's as my wedding cars :-)

Was wondering if there would be a market for this again?

Renting out your car as a wedding car?

I'd be worried you'd rent it out and never see it again.

Or do you mean selling a 240K sedan?

FYI in UAE this sedan would be worth north of $20,000.

eg: http://www.carindubai.com/ads/1977-nissan-skyline-gt/

75,000 AED = 22,500 AUD (approximately)

Not renting but see some classic cars being driven by owners as limos of sorts, guess there's not a lot of bride room in the back seat of a 240k though.

10K is lowball? geez, these things seem to go up in value all the time. I'm not selling, mind you, but seems like a decent bit of coin.

As for Wedding Cars, well I'm sure there's people who'd love it. Maybe not as big a crowd as though who want an XY GT or a MK2 Jaguar or something a bit more iconic

Been a while since I posted anything, have done a little to the car since then. Fitted a Petronix electronic ignition which definitely made starting easier and helped it rev a bit. Had a problem with the car stalling, and found the old wiring had some bad voltage drops. Ran a power cable from the Battery direct to the coil, using the original circuit to trigger a relay, and everything was perfect.

Bought a set of low king springs and fitted them all around. Gave it a much nicer stance, and made handling so much better. Got rid of a lot of the body roll, without making the ride too harsh. Would definitely recommend it as a cheap effective upgrade.

Fitted an old man rear louvre to nana-spec it a little. Also bought a blanket on the rear seat and a tissue box on the rear parcel shelf.

Lastly got a period set of rims, Turugi Racing Bilbos. I like the out there styling (and really out there name) and think the gold goes well with the blue.

That's all I've done other than use it as a daily and just enjoy it, they really are nice to drive and surprisingly comfortable.

Don't plan to do much more at this point, only thing I wouldn't mind fitting is some JDM rear lenses and wiring them up to have all 4 rings as tail and brake lights, don't suppose anyone here can help me find some? Been checking YaJ through Import Monster and haven't seen a set in a while.

oh, and I painted the grille back and left the chrome trim as is. Does anyone know if they were black and chrome from factory, or left unpainted with the die cast left raw?

Grill should be metallic gray

Considering he'd send it somewhere where it would sell for $20,000 to $30,000.

Hasn't been too much to report of late, car has been serving daily duties with out a fault. In the last few weeks I seem to have been getting a lot of offers to buy it, both from "exporters" and a few guys that had them as first cars back in the day.

Anyway, finally sourced a pair of lenses of YaJ, and after a bit of cleaning they are on the car. I love the look already.
