1972 Datsun Z-Series

This 1972 Datsun 240Z was a Project Vehicle that has been in covered storage for over 22 years. At that time, it was almost totally disassembled and painted. The exterior color looks black in the shade and has a slight purple reflection in the light. Body has some scratches and dings. Plates welded to cover door handles, the idea was to have remote door openers. Several new parts were purchased: Headers, muffler, exhaust system, ITG Foam air cleaner, clutch, pressure plate, bearings, camshaft, rubber door trim, brake booster, oil cooler, carpets, fuel cell, dash cover and much more! A new headliner was installed. The Cannon manifold was polished (top only). The engine is not frozen. The spare tire well was removed and a fuel cell was installed. There is minor surface rust on the fuel cell support because I had to park the Z outside for a couple of days and it had rained. The front engine/suspension support member has been powdered coated. Painted rear wing and front air dam also included. I am almost certain that the steering rack and triple 40 DCOE Weber carburetors were rebuilt. Give me a break, I'm now an old senior citizen geezer and the memory is now a bit faded.

Odometer indicates 08705 miles. Not sure if speedometer/odometer was replaced or if it has 108,705 miles. I drove it less than 100 miles before disassembly. Vehicle is in Chatsworth, CA. Bring a trailer! It’s time for this Z to get a new home where it will be brought back to life on the road; where it belongs. Clean title, not salvaged. Sold as-is, no warranty or refund.

It's very rare to find a 45 year old Datsun 240Z project car that has only minor rust with tons of potential. Send me a message to see over two hundred photographs of the vehicle and parts.
