  1. Hello Mike, I’m aware of some mistakes that needs to be corrected. I sent you an e-mail! Thanks chris
  2. @w3wilkes @madkawThanks for your feedback. It is just from wich perspective you look at it. We restore several 1969 production US cars and European cars, These cars come with tanks that have the connections like the tanks we produce. Also the cars produced for the Japanese market (including the Z432), the UK , Australia and the rest of the world came in this configuraton (without the vapor connections) A lot of people I know in the US said that this configuration would fit them also, because they delete the vapor system. For the US market cars we restore to a "as it left the factory"level, after the tanks are produced, we simply ad the connections and we have the tank the car came with when new. Till now most orders came from the US, but also Japan (for a Z432) and the rest of the world. I have a 1970 919 color 240Z I use as a daly driver, and this car I run with triple Mikuni's so I don't need the emission and vapor stuff at all on this car.
  3. Actually I am doing the reproduction. We have every type FUEL Tank as an example available. But it was a though choice! Besides we are restoring many US-cars we are also restoring and will restore some US 1969, some European cars, the last 2 came without vapor tank, so that is why we decided to produce without the vapor tank connection. Also because a lot of people in the US told me that they delete the vapor parts anyway. To be honest, the white car in the pictures with VIN HLS30-15642 is a US one, we are restoring it as it came out of the factory and for that car we added the connections to the tank after production.
  4. These are Dutch license plates of that period of time. A friend of mine has the letter fromRob Jansen to Nissan Japan about the stability.
  5. The car can be of the 9th month I suppose, or maybe 10th
  6. Your welcome Sir! But I’m still curious if there is a production date on your seatrails. Till now I inspected very early cars. Can you take a look? What is your VIN?
  7. There should be a production date on it like 9 - 10 or so.See the last picture if you want to discus a complete restoration of your car, we can do it for you.. There are so many details you have to fix! The seat bottom was a first try-out, the frame is not painted in this picture. But all materials are correct. We have about 5 original first paint cars as an example and restored about 45 S30’s. please contact me at christoffel2369@gmail.com
  8. Hello, wat production date is on the frame rail?
  9. I have to measure, I remember 12 mm, but not 100% sure now!
  10. Great, than this is solved! Same as on my #672 is #187 drivable now??
  11. Hello Alan, It are pure assumptions from me. I thought that could be the case because it is a pure North American issue. For the reasons you are telling I assume (again) that HLS30-00003 is not the right car to use as an example . I took apart 6 cars between #23 and #305, and than you have a reasonable amount of cars to conclude what should be origina or not. It is really interesting to see how many changes there were in the first months. When there are 2 different parts on these cars, most of the time the leighter part is the earliest part. Being able to compare makes it more easy to decide what would have been orignal. A rare part that is different are the knuckle arms, They have the 12 mm ball joint shaft. The left ones are mostly still there but some of the right ones were missing. And took some time to find them. And about the the emission decal, I have one a very original HLS30-00672 with clear glass all around and it has a decall without date. So again an assumption of me that that could be the first type of decal. Only could find it on #184 but couldn/t read it anymore
