1969 Datsun 240z (LHD) 888 JXT  Vin No: HLS30-00059  Engine Number: L24 2204
Length: 4. 18m. Width: 1. 63m. Height: 1. 6m. Weight: 1, 050 kg. First reg: Canada november 1969

ORIGINATION:
After the 1969 car was imported into the UK from Canada, in 2010, the car was rebuilt, to our order, by Duncan Pearcey of “The Z Farm”, to its ‘marathon rally specification’. At that time, the original bodywork was in a lamentable state and had to be replaced. In 2012, after the car’s successful completion of the 16, 000 kms “La Gira Andina” rally in South America, it was substantially rebuilt again, by Duncan Pearcey. He also reworked the engine to produce more power and installed an uprated high lift performance camshaft. During 2018 and 2019, further substantial upgrades and improvements were carried out by Derek Hunt of Automonza, which led to a further major rebuild, also exposing and eradicating all rust and carefully waxoyling the complete car. Accordingly, as per all rally and race cars, very few “original” parts remain, and a substantial part of the bodywork is comprised of 1972 and 1973 parts. The engine block, L24 2204, is the original from the car as it left the factory in Japan in 1969. The removal of the existing Jenvey ignition system and reversion to the fitted 2” SU HS8 carbs and electronic ignition system, which are included, would enable the car to enter rallies with pre-1970 rules.                           
The car is in “Samuri” livery but is not a Spike Anderson “Samuri”, although finished to a similar, or higher, specification.                                  I am the second owner and, over the last 10 years, have spared no expense in bringing it up to an incredibly high specification. All the painstaking work over the last few years, at a figure well in excess of £100, 000, carried out by Derek Hunt, to the highest quality, has ensured that it drives superbly, is very comfortable and is as reliable as a modern-day car. Yet, it can easily be converted to rally format.   My journey with my Datsun over the last 10 years, making it into a truly great car, (in my humble opinion), has been a fantastic experience. On occasions it has been painful, when things didn’t go to plan, and, obviously, it has been extremely expensive. In truth, if i was starting again now, and did not want a car eligible for pre-1970 rallies, I would most likely go to MZR Roadsports in Bradford, for one of their reconstructed Datsun 240zs. They’ve taken all the pain and produced something that I now have, but at half the cost, even at their starting price of something like £89, 995, I believe. But i’ll let mine go for £69, 500. you’ll have to make up your own mind. (and I’m sure they would provide you with one in a light interior like mine, if you asked them nicely!!)                  BODYWORK:                                LHD.

Removal of spare wheel holder, original petrol tank and all of the original small storage deposits, to create a much larger open flat floor space. See “larger petrol tank” below.
