Yonmeri love, my 1975 240k c110 sedan


240k Style

Recommended Posts

Well, I cracked. Everyone says sedans are cool, especially Cam and Terry, but I didn't believe them. Turns out the were half right...

...I've been looking for a family cruiser for more sedate driving so a sedan would fit that bill. A good mate James located one and passed on some detail.

A week later I picked her up from western Victoria and met a lovely couple John and Shirley and their son Paul. They graciously allowed me to leave with their pride and joy.

Now John and Shirley had the car since the early 80's when their previous 240K got rolled so they needed another and bought this car off two young girls in Horsham.

The car had been used as a daily till the rego ran out in 2012!!!!!

The family sedan had been used frequently to pick up the grandchildren too, as the car is fitted with a child seat anchor, perfect for my two year old son.

So now the car is at my place, along with my hardtop coupe, and I've got to set about restoring her back to stock glory!! Dad and I did another epic road trip. Thanks again. Here are some photos.

It's a 10/1975 complianced car with a vin in the 8000 bracket. Matching numbers engine (I think) and a factory 4 speed manual! Extremely lucky. The paint is the original colour but it has been resprayed at some stage.

Could end up that way. Wouldn't that be sick. Rock up to track events in a Yonmeri towing a Kenmeri on a trailer!!!

Changed out the right side tail light assembly as the reverse lense was stuffed. When the garnish came off half the nullabor fell out!! So much dust!!

Some rust in the lower guards, and the doors have some pin holes, but apart from the there's a little surface rust in places which is easy fix. Looks like the passenger guard will need a new lower section so I'll change it for the moment.

Floors and boot are almost perfect!!! A little bit of water say under the spare wheel causing the colour. I've wire brushed it and treated the surface rust already. No holes!! I've got good front seats I'll use from my

Kenmeri project.

It's a factory 4 speed!! So happy

There was a factory jack and tool kit in the boot too.

Thinking of using these 280zx rims on it.

Are you going to drive the red rocket across to shepparton for the nationals?

That would be a cool event to attend, and funny you ask coz my daughter was asking if we could go......this is after we bought a 81 280zx for her :P She thinks it would be fun to blast around a racetrack in her car, get this, nicknamed 'Zena'.

I should do a little post for the 280, it was a really good buy. Requires a few grand in rust repairs but mostly cosmetic, and we have 18 months before she can even get her P's so shouldn't hurt too much :)

The ZX lived in Berwick, SE Melbourne since the early nineties I think, used to have personalised plates 'WICKED'.

Anybody remember this car?

Ok the seats need help, but I actually have some good seats ready to go from the coupe which i'll put in.

New carpet has been ordered. New rad hoses and fuel hoses have been ordered.

I have prices of new springs (25-44mm lower) to replace the mismatched set. New shocks are being organised as well.

Things are progressing well, i'm having to do a switch around with the coupe to get the wheels off to replace the brake hoses and repack the bearings and bleed the brakes. I have finned drum brake covers to go on as well.

Sadly the paint is terrible. It's been repainted and done very poorly with not much paint on the body, so a light sand back is out of the question. I'll just try to polish it up and see how it goes until i can get the pinholes fixed, i'll get the paint matched from the underside of the boot and get it entirely repainted.

Exciting times.....considering turning the coupe into a race car for some fun
