    bennyd's N360

    Hi guys and girls,
    I have been looking for an N360 to restore for about 10 years now and finally found one worth rescuing last week. It's on it's way to me here in Roxby Downs in South Australia now to be restored in memory of my Nanna.
    I will post up pics of my N360 once it gets here, and updates with pics throughout the restoration.
    Cheers
    Ben

    Here is a pic of what started the obsession all those years ago. It's a pic of me washing the N360 my Nanna had when I was a little tacker, I'm about 7, i think, in this pic so it would have been taken in around 1987.



    Thanks for looking and reading
    Ben

    Ben, would you happen to be 30 years old now, hahah, well, nice picture indeed! Your grandma must have had this car for ages, what happened to the car in the picture?

    Good luck in your restoration, hopefully you could find parts for the car

    Hi kev, yes mate, I am 30 :lol:
    My Nanna bought hers new in 1972 and had it until around 1990 when her mechanic was unable to locate parts to repair a problem it had. She then sold it to someone who was going to fix it up for his daughter. I'm not sure what the problem was that her mechanic couldn't fix, but I have wanted one to restore in her honour since I have been able to afford it financially.
    Hopefully, with the help of some members here at JNC, I will be able to locate all the parts I need to complete the restoration on mine once it gets here.
    I have just read through your thread on your S600, and might I compliment you on a wonderful job you have done. Good to see you being able to locate parts for yours with the help of members on here, that's what I'm hoping will happen with my restoration.
    Thanks
    Ben

    I can't wait to see the build get underway. My SO has become quite smitten with N360s/N600s, so we're on the hunt for one to restore. I'm sure you're well aware of Tim Mings' shop, yes?

    Box of goodies that was in the boot

    There's taillights, coils, seatbelts and all sorts in there.

    At a servo about halfway home



    That's all for now. Many more pics to come as I unload and discover jus what I've gotten myself into. It looks to be a good solid car with everything there so will make an excellent base for my restoration

    Cheers
    Ben
