I'm a small independent car dealer located in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I typically buy and sell your usual late model cars. trucks. and vans. I was car picking in January this year and seen this z-car for sale. I had a z-car over 20 years ago and thought how it would be cool to try one again. That day I made a business decision to purchase the car. My primary intention of buying this car was to resell it. my other intention was to satisfy my inner emotion (some call it a midlife crisis).

The car had new paint several years ago. not the original orange. its more like a salmon color. The car probably had some aftermarket body parts put on. I say this because there are different gaps b/t the doors and feners on both sides. The rear hatch has a couple places at the bottom that rust is showing under the paint. The motor is strong. It seems to have trouble fireing quickly at a cold start. It takes about 10 seconds to fire with the manual choke pulled. Let it idle a few minutes and its ready to go. A warm start it fires right away. The brakes are hard but I had no trouble getting the car to stop. The gears are easy to find and its smooth shifting as long as you clutch it smooth. The radio and pwr antenna works but not that well. The tires are like new. This car considering its age and lack of power steering has an impressive way of handling.

This car is far from perfect. It certainly has things that still need fixed. Here are things that I know that are not working properly.

1. tachometer. gas gauge. and clock do not work

2. both doors need adjustment to close tight

3. about all the chrome needs attention.

Prior to 1969. the impression most Americans had of Japanese cars mirrored those currently held of Chinese-made toys — mainly cheap junk. In the fall of 1969. the 240Z changed those opinions instantly and forever. Beautiful (albeit not terribly original) styling combined with a smooth 2. 4 liter overhead-cam straight six and independent rear suspension made the Z go and handle as well as it looked. 0-60 in 7. 8 seconds and a 125 mph top speed was better than a Porsche 911T and Jaguar E-Type of the day for around half the price. Needless to say. the Z clobbered competition from the likes of Alfa Romeo. Fiat. Opel. Triumph and MG. Datsun's U. S. manager Yutaka Katayama made sure that 6-foot-tall Americans could fit in the car as well as 5-foot 4-inch Japanese. Emissions regulations resulted in a slow degradation of performance and drivability after 1972 but this was addressed in 1975 with the introduction of the fuel injected 280Z. Parts are readily available for classic Z cars. but it's best to look for one in drier parts of the U. S. as rust has claimed a large number of 240Zs.
