Yes BIG THANKS KATS!  Mike posted a newspaper clipping of the LA show but it is difficult to see the car details. Your photo shows the classic grey plastic console, no D hubcaps,No OK sticker, and very light shift knob.

Kats,

That photo matches closely with the "Nissan News" photo of the Beverly Hilton event.  So it was silver!

Also, from Datsun Dealer Bulletin NS-69-008, Dated October 16, 1969, Robert O. Link; Auto Shows scheduled;

Boston October 25 - November 1, 1969

Los Angeles October 31 - November 9, 1969

San Francisco November 4 - 9, 1969

Detroit November 15 - 23, 1969

That's a great photo, thanks!

 

Chris, I have photos of Detroit 69 but no Z yet. You can see Datsun Signs in the distance and some Toyotas.

Yes, I have those pictures of Detroit.  Compare the display design with other show photos you have and you will see the common traveling stage set-up and graphics for 1969.  That changed for 1970 when Datsun USA won "The most beautiful exhibit" award at the Los Angeles show.  It is difficult to see, but the New York show in April had that same 'tea garden' theme. exhibit.

Blue, I did it before ? OK . And the silver car has a chrome Z quater emblem , and does not have a dove tail at the door , I see some super early cars do not have the dove tail , this can be a clue for determing the chassis number .

Chris, I think I have visited the ball room in Christmas 2006. I just wanted to feel atomosphere and imagine an excitement when the 240Z was on the display . Yes , it was small than I expected.
