Fully restored 1970 Datsun 240Z.
This vehicle was subject to a full bare metal / rotisserie restoration in 2016 which was performed with no expense spared. The aim of this particular restoration was to maintain the totally original specification of the car, which can be seen by the photographic evidence.
Fourways carried out the initial appraisal on the car in December 2015 and it was decided that because the car was so original it would be better to carry a sympathetic restoration rather than simply replacing everything with new parts.
The car was Soda blasted to full bare metal to ascertain the quality of the shell and identify accidental damage or corrosion prior to painting.
Once the body had been stripped it became evident that the metalwork was highly original with no corrosion, with the only exception being the two chassis rails which were rusty. Two new chassis rails were fabricated and the car was primed and painted. All of the mechanical items were restored and the engine only needed cosmetic enhancements.
The restoration was fully documented and the vehicle comes with a leather binder which includes many old Australian receipts. all the receipts for the build as well as full photographic evidence of the restoration along with much further history.
This vehicle has to be one of the finest in existence and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
