Excellent condition throughout. RUST FREE California car, 2nd owner!

Original paint! Never hit ANYWHERE.

Stock (original matching #) engine runs as new, no oil consumption whatsoever.

Upgrades include:

Transmission: "A" series type rebuilt 5 Speed (Warner type). Requires no floor modifications, direct bolt-in. 280 ZX clutch assembly.

  • Relocated differential position (to improved '73 position)
  • 3.54 gears
  • All new Spicer U-Joints (all 6)
  • Tokico competition springs (lowered slightly)
  • KYB Strut inserts
  • "Suspension Techniques" sway bars front and rear
  • All new brake hydraulics (cylinders and calipers)
  • Includes all soft lines
  • Front brake upgrade to Toyota
  • 4 Piston Calipers (from 4wd truck)
  • Stops beautifully!
  • 15" Panasport wheels with new Bridgestone Potenza tires
  • Reconditioned interior includes fresh seat upholstery kit (motorsport auto)
  • New carpets (floors were carefully washed)

Note: strut bars front and rear (to reduce body-flex). This car is mechanically excellent and has been lovingly maintained by a retired Japanese auto mechanic with some upgrades done by two professional high quality specialists (suspension, brakes and transmission). Original 4 speed included.

Although many 240Zs might still remain, VERY few are as original and UNmodified. These remaining few should go up in value considerably in the next 5 to 10 years (similar first series Datsun Roadsters are now OVER $40,000 and climbing!)

A restoration of this caliber would cost $25,000 minimum. This is an original car, so in my opinion, it's actually worth more than a restoration. A collector car can be restored many times over, but it is ORIGINAL only once!

Please call Mike Young and he will call you back on his dime for more details: 415-828-8778.

Local delivery included, distance delivery professionally arranged.

Many spare Nissan NOS parts available. Price reduction available if original 4 speed is desired. Will install as needed (original works and shifts perfectly.) Also available: original wheels and hubcaps.
