1972 Datsun 240Z Nice clean car for sale
Motor and driveline work as they should. I have driven a few of these in my time and this one flat out hauls. and sounds amazing doing it. Brakes and handling are as they should be.
Motor was gone through and has over sized EX valves
Carbs are Weber DOCE 45MM triples. may need to be re-sync'd as you get a lean pop every now and then at low rpm's with a very light load on her.
I feel my reserve is much lower than what this car is worth. I may not get as many views with a 5 day auction. but she must go.

I just thought I would post up some of the most common questions I have been getting. I will attempt to try and make this readable.
Q: what does the car have for a radio and does it work?
A: Yes it works. the deck is a Pioneer DEH-P2900MP CD/MP3. Speakers are 4. 5'' Eclipse's in the front and 6x9'' Pioneer Premiers in the back. and yes the remote and power antenna works.
Q: What Ignition are you running?
A: The Ignition box is a Crane Cams Fireball XR3000. the coil is a Fireball PS250 and the wires are Taylor Spiro Pro 8MM.
Q: What are the actual miles on the car?
A: 106. 79 but I'm sure there will be roughly 20-30 more due to test drives.
Q: How old is the paint and what was all done to it body wise?
A: I have owned the car for a year now and have not done anything to it. I do not know how old the paint is or what was all done to her. I do know it looks to be clean with the original floor pans and what not. I may be able to ask my friend if I can use his lift again if someone wanted to look over the car in detail. we could also bring it to a respectable shop and you could pay them to use their lift and look it over. Its very important to me that the next owner is happy with the car. because there is nothing than buying something you don't want.
Q: Can you tell me a little more about the quality of the paint and chrome?
A: First let me say that this car has been a driver for me. I drive the car whenever the weather lets me. otherwise whats the point of owning a car! The paint is very flat and shines very well. better than most brand new cars at the dealer. Being a driver there are a few and I mean few small stone chips. but over all in very good condition. There are no known dents or dings in the car. The only flaw worth even listing is there is a small hairline crack on the passenger side above the rear quarter window where these chassis flex. it is 3cm long and thinner than a human hair. As for the chrome. same thing it is not brand new chrome strait from the chrome shop. It's older and original chrome. The rear bumper has a wavy spot in the middle of it as seen in the pictures. All I can say is that this car is a nice car to run and drive and is in great shape. if you are looking for a museum car please look elsewhere!
Q: How are the brakes and does the a/c heat work good?
A: Brakes work as they should for a car with no power brakes. The E-Brake also works. As for the A/C there is none. so that takes care of that. Heat works good.
Q: How is the glass and could you tell me more about the inside of the car?
A: No windows have cracks in them. the windshield has a few stone chips in it. as would be expected with a old car. The inside of the car is clean. The dash does have a cover on it I never pulled it off to look under it as it is glued? on. both seats are the same style I just pulled one cover off to show the seat type. I do have the other cover and it will go with the car. windows roll up and down nice all locks work as they should. The Z floor mats are old and show wear but do what they need to do. Carpet is in nice shape as well. headliner is clean and not sagging.
Q: Will you ship the car oversea's
A: I'm sorry I wish I could but there are just to many factors that are out of my control. I want the car to go from me to the new owner direct. not to 3 shipping company's. To many things make it bad for both party's. Don't get me wrong I'd love your money!
Q: Do all the lights and gauges work?
A: Yes all lights work. there is however a crack in the pass side headlight lens cover. The oil pressure gauge is lazy and the water temp gauge does not work. I do however have a box of gauges to go with the car. I have not had the time to figure out how to put them in. Being that the motor was gone through this didn't bother me.
Q: Do you have a buy it now and would you be willing to trade for anything.
A: I don't have a buy it now. never thought about it. As I stated in the auction I'm selling her to get money put together for a down payment on a building lot. So I'd really just like to sell it for cash. but anything is doable. I would be dumb to not take a car valued fairly higher than mine.
A few things I'd like to add. I see a few bids from people with lower feedback numbers. I understand we all have to start sometime on Ebay. but please make sure you are honestly bidding on the car because you want it. I have no time for a "my kid bid on it" story. Also for the people that are a few hours away from me. feel free to make the drive and come see the car. Lastly my phone has low signal where I work and in my house. so if you call and get disconnected I'll go outside and call you right back. I'm not hanging up on you. Just a reminder this is a 5 day auction with 5 days to pay. so please make sure you are able to pay by Fri the 19th. If you can't come get the car by then please email me or call me and we will see what we can work out ok.
