    Worth looking at? #1

    I was under the impression that automatics became available around mid 1970.
  3. So it has the engine and trans from a Z4. What else? I think I heard something about the chassis being shared as well. Basically it seems like it's just a Toyota factory modified Z4. It's not special. The previous Supra was special. It might end up being a good car, but IMO it's no Supra. They should have called it something else.

    Looking for new or very nice 240Z winshield

    I have a good one in another car, I just need to pluck it before I sell the car. Thanks for the offer though.

    Looking for new or very nice 240Z winshield

    Would like to hear some feedback from anyone who has gotten this one. I was under the impression only the type with tinted banner were available. I'm going to need a new windshield at some point, and the only OE one available to me would have to be stolen from another car I have. A proper OE windshield replacement would be great to have.

    Steering Effort Differences Between Years

    Apologies, that was copied from the other thread to make it easier to find the relevant info. But yes, both racks measured were from US cars.

    Series: Building a BMW V10-powered S30

    Yes, I caught that build on his channel around the time he started it. Quickly realized he has no clue what he's doing, and tuned out of the disaster that he called a build.

    Steering Effort Differences Between Years

    Here: http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/99017-240z-rack-into-280z/ 240Z (1972) - 1.81" of travel per 360 deg of steering. 280Z (1976) - 1.5" of travel per 360 deg of steering

    Steering Effort Differences Between Years

    Yes, the steering racks are different, someone on hybrdZ measured the travel per revolution on both racks, and the 240 rack was a little faster. However, to me, that would mean that the 240 would have heavier steering, but the opposite is true.

    Vin Verification

    Yes, those were vents. Your car is a series two, there is no chance it is a series one.

    1973 Datsun Z-Series 240z

    I thought that too, but nope. All the sales he links to are by different sellers in different states. I'm not sure what exactly his motive is, since he signed up here, and all he does is post ebay links. He never responds or anything else. Just an ebay link.

    1973 Datsun Z-Series 240z

    The rockers look like they've been messed with. I don't know if they're rotted out and filled with bondo, or if they were replaced poorly or what, but they don't look right. Between that and the condition of the rest of the car, I"d run far, far away.

    Wasn't this car for sale on BaT?

    Yes, it's been posted both here and on HybridZ by a member who owns it.

    country of origin of HLS30-00957

    You assume I haven't been reading the thread this entire time, and that somehow, if I were to go back and read the beginning, I might somehow change my mind. I've read all the same posts that you did and nothing in a single one of them made me think he might be tampering with something.
