Although it sold relatively well in Australia, 240k coupes rarely come up for sale, and prices of classic Skyline related vehicles have been going through the roof in the past decade. Known in other markets as the C110 Skyline, this represents a unique opportunity to purchase an Australian delivered example before it gets snapped up by an overseas collector.
The seller of this GT notes it’s been in the family for many years. We’re particularly excited that we’re able to showcase this car on Classic Register, as the only other example of a 240K coupe currently available is asking nearly $70,000 (here on carsales). That goes to show where prices of restored 240Ks could head, and makes the restoration costs for an example like this seem very worthwhile.
Originally fitted with a 6-cylinder 2.4l engine, a 2.6l has since been installed in this car (from a 260Z). It has a 5-speed manual gearbox, twin SU carburettors and a worked camshaft. A custom aluminium radiator and electric thermo fan have also been installed to improve reliability and cooling, and the battery has been relocated to the trunk. Add to that list a new starter motor and alternator, and the car is ready for the next lucky Datsun enthusiast.
Inside, the front seats have been re-trimmed, and are in excellent condition. The trim overall is in great order, with little to spend. In terms of the body, the car has some rust in the usual places (rear quarter panels) which would need to be tended to. A new rust-free bonnet has been installed, and the rest of the car is relatively solid.
