1973 Datsun Z-Series

This is a 1973 Datsun 240Z . It is an automatic. With AC. I got in a package deal with a 1970 240Z. . It is rough. It is tumble. It has dents .It has sat for years. In a junkyard. Where the Mormon junk yard forklift driver from Hell attacked it with his fork. More on that later . It had layers of dust i, ou, top and bottom. I had it mucked out but it needs everything.While sitting in a boneyard near Zion in Southern Utah it took some hits. One thru the drivers door almost to the center console.Must of been a slow day in the yard and he needed some target practice. This car is not rustfree. But close. Some bubbling and bondo in the doglegs. Small area on passenger pan I tried to show in a picture. And damage on the rear of both floor stiffening rails . Usually because of longtime sitting where water gets down into the rails and is trapped at the tail end.This car sat a longtime in that dreaded junkyard so that makes sense here. The rockers, ower fenders, nner front arches are nice clean and rustfree. Little area on drivers lower fender .The lower rear corners of both doors have rust bubbling. The drivers door needs to be replaced anyway due do Edward Scissorhands and his forklift. As the left fender should be also due to forklift damage. No front end hits, hich is very common with Zs.Other than where said forkift driver lifted the front end and tore off the lower valance and bent the bumper up a bit in the center. Nice frame horns with no damage.The rear inner lower hatch is nice and clean along the bottom where they all rust. The left rear tire blew out at speed it looks like, nd beat the heck out of the lower quarter panel behind the wheel and also damaged the bumper return corner. .This car is pretty much stock other than the Enkei rims. Stock engine. And the early 240Z automatic trannys are actually pretty nice. Shift fast and hard and surprisingly pretty snappy. If you ever drive one you actually might like it. We got it kind of running to check out the engine. To make sure it can be a runner and not stuck. . Off a jug of gas in the engine bay. Put new plugs points, ondensor.It does not drive. I have not tried. Though it will not take much to get it oing again. Putting it here on Ebay as is and will go thu it more if it does not sell. Have way too many cars in front of this one. Early Zs are getting harder to get in any shape for reasonable money these days. Save some serious money here and bring this car back to life. After all it has been thru it deserves it Car has a straight clean Utah title . Personal inspection is more than welcome at my shop here in Prescott.Or send someone else to check it out . I get over to the Long Beach shippers every week or so . So overseas buyers are more than welcome . Great cars at reasonable money like this do not come across so much any more ..This will be a good one for someone. Will be great project to work on thru the Winter and have a fun new ride for next year.
