Technical specifications, photos and description:
Early Production 6/70
This 1970 Datsun 240Z Sports Coupe is an original. early production 6/70. unrestored "survivor" with absolutely NO RUST and one repaint in the correct paint #904 Kilimanjaro White. It was sold new in Georgia. cherished by its two previous owners and has never been a "daily driver".
The original 2. 4 liter 6-cylinder engine is 100% factory stock and unmodified. It still retains its original E31 cylinder head. dual Hitachi round-top carburetors and factory air cleaner assembly. The engine starts easily. quickly settles into a smooth idle and pulls cleanly through the rev range under acceleration. There are no mechanical issues. no smoke. no leaks. no noises. The factory 4-speed manual transmission shifts effortlessly. The car starts. runs and drives without drama of any kind.
The factory A/C system blows cold air. A/C high pressure hose and receiver drier were replaced and refrigerant recharged in 2004.
The following maintenance has been performed on the car in the last few years: Replaced front brake pads. rotors. calipers and brake lines. Flushed brake fluid. Replaced fuel pump. fuel filter. uel lines. water pump. radiator fan clutch. engine belts and battery. Installed new front & rear KYB shocks. Installed new Yokohama Avid tires on new Panasport wheels.
The car has a well preserved interior with reclining bucket seats in the correct and original upholstery. The original dashboard and center console are in excellent condition with no cracks. The factory tachometer and speedometer operate properly as do the gauges for oil pressure. amperes and coolant temperature. The original wood rim steering wheel. interior panels and headliner are also in excellent condition. The factory radio is still installed and functional. Overall. a very nice and correct early interior.
The body of the car retains all its original body panels and is in great condition with no dents or dings. The car had the "Ziebart Rustproof Protection" process applied when new and retains all the original yellow plugs in the door jambs and rear hatch area to cover the holes drilled to complete the rustproofing process. I can find no evidence of previous body damage. body repair or rust. One older respray in the correct Kilimanjaro White paint was done years ago and is beginning to show its age. Two very small sections of paint are beginning to "lift" at the right rear quarter panel behind the fuel filler door. The chrome bumpers are in great original condition with no pitting. All glass is original and in good condition. As mentioned above. the car has been fitted with brand new Panasport alloy wheels. the one and only deviation from factory stock configuration.
Overall. an incredibly well-preserved. gently driven. original spec. early production car with no excuses. After owning. cherishing and enjoying the car for 10 years and 6936 miles the time has come to sell. The car is available for viewing. by appointment. at my home in Naples. Florida.
The car will be sold to the highest bidder @ NO RESERVE.
I reserve the right to end this auction at any time as the car is currently for sale locally.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL
