  1. I'm 2nd owner of hls30-10610. I think yours is the closest VIN to mine I've seen yet. To think, they could have been on the same boat with each other.
  2. The restore looks great! On post #89, it looks lke the transmission tunnel is black instead of body color. Is that original or would it typically be body color?
  3. Yeah, I noticed that. From the ebay ad, looks to me as if the interior panels were all covered with fabric. Both of those can be fixed if someone rally wanted to. The biggest issue with originality is obviously the engine swap to a 2.8L. Low VIN aside, it's still a probably better than average looking 240. If it were a Series II, I don't think most would mind the upgrades that were done. It's unfortunate an early Z like this didn't stay original, but it is what it is... in my opinion, a great looking Z (at least the exterior, from the pictures).
  4. Local craigslist ad. I don't know the seller, but willing to look at it for anyone who wants some local eyes on it. I drive through Fort Mill a couple times a week. https://charlotte.craigslist.org/cto/5341879273.html Looks like he posted it on ebay as well. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-Z-Series-2-door-/291629559003?forcerrptr=true&hash=item43e679ecdb:g:3Y8AAOSwfZ1WXjVf&item=291629559003
  5. I'd be interested in hearing what the issue was with the MSD and Pertronix
  6. My 9/70 does not have the summer/winter flapper. I can't find it now, but I thought I read somewhere the flapper was added 10/70.
  7. I'm 2nd owner of 9/70 built Z that's very original. I'll be pulling the engine in next month or two. I already have alternator and smog pump (CA car) off. I can try to get some photos tonight that show the color of the brackets and block for comparison to yours.
  8. I'm a perfectionist as well and fan of doing it right the first time, so I feel your pain. You don't want to do all of this work and end up with something you're not happy with. It also wouldn't surprise me if they did use multiple shades of the blue over time. What about best 2 out of 3? Anyone use the engine blue from Classic Datsun Motorsports? Which one is it closer to? http://www.classicdatsun.com/
  9. Volvo P1800 Swedish car, designed by Italian firm, originally built in Britian then production moved to Sweden... and it has SU carbs!
  10. I'm flying in as well. I had e-mailed the organizers with a question about the weekend and they mentioned Millington. They said a few more things about it, but since it's not on their website, I won't say anything else so I don't ruin any surprises. I may be wrong, but I'm assuming shuttle will be provided on Saturday for registered attendees, like on Fri to/from Beale St as mentioned on their website.
  11. Saturday's car show is at an old Navy base called Millington Jet Port
  12. I've done research online on original tire and how the old size system compares to new sizes... after all that, just realized my spare is probably 40 years old. I just noticed it is 175-14 Michelin radial. It goes out of its way to say it's "tubeless" and says Made in Spain. I don't think it's original... car is a '71 and I'm guessing from the numbers after DOT that it's from '74??? Anyway, thought it was kind of cool, so I thought I would share...
  13. Yes, what media did you use? Also, was everything done in a tumbler or were the bigger or odd-shaped items bead blasted (w/ compressor)?
  14. I'll be there. Can't wait to see some nice cars and meet folks from this site
