 I'm offering a very clean restored 1973 240z. I purchased the vehicle from the first owners in Costa Mesa California. The Barber family purchased this original Brown 240z on 3/1/1973 from Garden Grove Datsun. address 13861 Harbor Blvd. Garden Grove. CA 92640.  It comes with the original purchase agreement. Promissory Note. some maintenance records. original owners manual. picture brochure and some old registration cards from mid 70's.   The 240z sat in the garage for well over 15 years with the occasional usage and maintenance to prevent seizing. The engine was swapped to an L28 w/ 5 speed tranny for whatever reason. The interior is very nice only molested to repaint inside the door jams and hatch area. The exterior is awesome it received all new OEM emblems from Nissan and a 2 stage paint job. The underside is also in great shape. I see no rust.

 Engine was inspected by a Datsun mechanic and gave it a thumbs up!!!

 Send your inspector to check out the car. Read full description first.

 Start up and driving feeling: Runs very strong and shifts nicely. It idles great. Little rough on cold start.   People compliment how good the 240z sounds and looks. Gas mileage is good. Vehicle is fully tuned with fresh oil. oil filter. spark plugs. spark plugs wires and very tiddy engine bay.  Doesn't burn oil.
