Datsun 240z

For a number of years I had a 1973 Datsun 240z, and a 1978 280z 2+2 parts car. Here you will find some of the posts and videos from those two cars.

Project 240Z work begins again!

I finally got to working on the SM2 project today. I didn't do much, but I got over a big hurdle.

I got the 240Z moved out of the garage and moved the 280z 2+2 into the garage so I can start tearing the motor out of it. I also removed the hood and hinges from the 280, fit the hood onto the 240. That was another concern, if the hood would actually swap nicely between the two. So far it looks like it will, though I didn't bother putting the hinges on it and onto the 240 as I will just have to remove it when I go to put the motor back into the 240Z when ready.

Hopefully this week I'll get started on pulling the motor out of the 280, though I'm going to have to see if I can get someone to buy the 240Z motor first, It's taking up too much room in the garage.

Yep, that's a hurdle alright. Always feels good to move big pieces of equipment (i.e. the entire cars) around. :)

Seems like this was from a while ago, but do you have any parts from the 78 280z 2+2 kicking around that you're looking to get rid of?
