As Good As Gold: Datsun 240K Hardtop On The Street In Australia

August 23, 2017

Looks like Queensland's back streets have provided me with my first spotting of a Datsun 240K. Condition looks to be unrestored, yet in need of one, and that's just the way I like it.

The C110 Series 240K was built from 1972 to 1977. This 240K hardtop was built in 1974. It has a 2,393cc inline 4 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
