Hey everyone. The name is Bates, I was here about a year ago when I almost bought a 71 240Z, but the guy wouldn't budge on the price so I turned it down. Well I am back now. Since that time last year I have boosted my 2002 Spec-V, which is still my daily but it is no longer boosted since I almost blew the engine, I am now forging an engine for it. I also bought a 1986 N/A Z31 a few months ago which I am selling to buy my new 1977 280Z 4 Speed manual. Found this puppy on Craigslist, and after going to up to take a look at it it should be in my possession this weekend. It doesn't run but it did before it was stored for a couple of years, so after a good tune up, fresh fluids, fresh gas and a new battery I am confident she will live again. She has been garage kept for years out of the elements and it shows. Not too many S30s in my area this rust free anymore. As far as rust goes the car is sanded down so there is no paint to hide rust. The inner area of the hatch top and bottom has some good surface rust and the firewall from the engine side of the passenger side has some, but the frame is solid along with the strut towers and the floors. This S30 is coming with a lot of extras, way too much list but just to name some of the bigger parts: 2 extra L28 engines, one being a bluetop rebuilt crate engine by ATK An extra head and 2 extra transmissions (1 4-Speed and 1 5-Speed) 2 extra hoods, one vented and one non vented 1 Piece brand new dash board cover Brand new never installed molded carpet 2 Extra mint seats 2 sets of wheels and tires 2 240Z bumpers front and rear and an extra 280Z bumper Extra Fenders Extra strut assemblies with calipers and drums And so much more! (I will be selling some of this stuff for feel free to PM me about parts if I have it and I am not using it I will let you know!) I could pretty much build another Z out of all the extra I am getting, and they are in wonderful shape too. I plan to get this car back on the road ASAP because it deserves to be on the road. After a temp paint job to get me through until I have money for my midnight blue S30 paint job, I will really begin the restoration process on it. Taking care of all the rust now before it gets worse, and building that ATK engine on the side. This car will stay N/A, it will be tasteful and easy on the eyes. It will stay classic. I am going to start out with the MSA exhaust and 6-1 Headers before it is even back on the road as well. Anything to open the car up more. Now on too some pictures, they are not pretty but hopefully you guys in the community will agree with me that this car has some great potential!
