The Datsun 240Z wasn't Japan's first sports car. It wasn't even
Nissan's; as that honour goes to the open-topped Fairlady. But it
was the first sports car from the Pacific Rim that achieved huge
international success. especially in the USA. Nissan's
formula for sales success with this car was simple; to imitate the
British sports car such as the MGC and Triumph GT6 by accentuating
their good points and eliminating the legions of faults. The 240Z's
looks were spot on. thanks to styling influenced by a Count
Albrecht Goertz concept developed for Datsun in the early 1960s.
Performance from its sporty 2. 4 litre power unit which owed a lot
to the BMC C-Series as well as Mercedes-Benz's straight-six. was
more than ample. Being a Datsun. reliability was a given. but the
agile (if tail-happy) handling was a pleasant surprise. During its
five year run. more than 150. 00 were produce and survivors are now
seriously appreciating.

This 1972 Datsun 240Z is fitted with a manual gearbox was fully
rebuilt and restored in 2013 and has recently been imported to the
UK from the Bordeaux region in France. Fitted with period Wolfrace
wheels. this 240Z is finished in lime yellow with lime yellow and
black interior and supplied with a French registration document. a
French transfer certificate. a UK MoT test certificate which
expires in February 2017 and. if the car is to remain in the UK. a
NOVA certificate will be issued. Japanese sports cars from
this period are becoming much sought after and restored examples
are demanding high prices; this 240Z would grace any collection and
should carry on appreciating in value.
