1971 Datsun 240Z
About the Car
This three-owner. five-speed. factory air conditioned. 1971 Datsun 240Z is an extremely nice. no excuses car. You will be hard pressed to find another one this nice. This is a garage kept example through and through and the pride of previous ownership shows. This 240Z has never been in an accident and is as straight as the day it came from the factory. Averaging less than 3. 00 miles per year. this is has been a cherished car. Documentation has receipts going back to 1987 verifying the mileage. The original woman owner lived in Washington where the car spent the first 34 years of its life between two owners. It was then sold to a dentist in Kansas who only used it during the summer months. The receipts document 138. 00 miles on the chassis. but there are less than 500 miles on the rebuild. This 240Z has been regularly serviced throughout its lifetime. Built in May 1971. this Z was undercoated from the factory and that preserved it exceptionally well. There are no rust issues anywhere.
Since it has been in our possession we have gone through it completely. starting with a complete rebuild of the engine and carburetors. After 138. 00 miles of service. it was time. There are currently 400 miles on the rebuild and it runs out great. While the motor was out being rebuilt. the engine compartment was repainted the original silver. As Z fans know. silver is a pretty rare color. Also. while the engine was out. a new clutch was installed. The air conditioning compressor was rebuilt. The radiator was also removed. fully reconditioned and reinstalled. New belts. new thermostat. new fuel filter. pretty much everything under the hood is new or rebuilt. All fluids were changed out.
With all of the running components completed. the stopping components were the next item to be redone. New rotors and pads. new drums and shoes for the brakes were installed. New Yokohama tires complete the package.
This 240Z comes with the very rare Hitachi Station Seeking AM Radio (the radio alone sells for $800+ here on eBay). Even rarer. it works. The antenna functions perfectly as it is also newly rebuilt. This Z also has new rear carpet. new front carpet and new 240Z insignia floor mats. All of the dash lights work. including the radio. The map light and dome light also work as they should. All of the gauges work as well with the exception of the clock which in Z tradition is right twice a day. This Z comes with all of its used original tools. jack. wheel chocks. and spare. The storage compartment doors work perfectly.
After taking care of everything under the hood and inside we color sanded and buffed the paint. we know of one re-spray in the original silver. and added the side stripes as well as the spoiler. All exterior lights work. The chrome on the front bumper is good. The chrome on the rear bumper is fair. This is a 240Z you can enjoy for many years to come.
Yes. there are cheaper 240Zs out there. but you couldn't do what we've done to this one at a price anywhere near this.

While fully licensed by the State of California. we are simply two guys with over 75 years of automotive experience who enjoy cars. particularly Fun Cars. We specialize in personalized attention and we focus on your satisfaction. Whether it is a contemporary car or a classic. for work or for play. buying or selling. we guarantee you will be happy with the results. We truly believe that life is too short to drive boring cars.

When we buy cars to resell we actually buy them for ourselves. Our thought is. “would we be disappointed if we had to keep it for a long time?” If the car can answer “no” to that question. we buy it. We drive every car we buy at least 200 miles while they're with us. That allows us to discover any issues and make sure that there are none when you buy the car. That said. these are used cars and we're not perfect. But our feedback indicates very happy customers.
