Wanted: 70 or 72 240Z in or near CA


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Well since I killed my 72' 240Z, I'm in need of another. I currently have a 71' that is my daily driver so at least I'm not desperate..

O.k. here's what I would like in order of preference;

1) 70' 240Z

2) 72' 240Z

3) 71' 240Z distant third but will still consider.

I'm willing to spend 8-11K for the car but would like to keep it more towards 8K. I'll go higher but then proximity and getting nit picky with details on the car comes into strong play.

I'm looking for an orginal well maintaned car or one restored. No rust please. Paint needs to be in good condition but not necesarily show quality. 4-speed manual tranny a must and want a 240 engine. Numbers matching prefered. Not interested in cars with 260 or 280 engines in them. Suspension modifications are o.k.

Open to various exterior/interior color combos but my favorite is orange/black, red/black, dk green/tan.

Feel free to chime in if you think I want too much for the price or have any other comments. I've been out of the Z market for about 10 years and have noted the prices have escalated but I think I'm in the ball-park here.

Best Regards,

Landmizzle 71' 240Z

Almost everything in the car has been gone through in the last ten years from all new brakes, clutch, window seals, interior, new paint, custom wheels, the list goes on.

I can't answer for everyone but, I can tell you my opinion. I haven't forgotten about the '73 240Z. I simpley not very interested in it. This is based on several reasons;

1) Flat top carbs are terrible

2) Compression ratio dropped beyond even the '72 model.

3) Gained weight.

Since you own a '73 please don't take offense. I realize that many of these issues can be addressed. However, it is the above listed issues that turn me off with regards to '73 and I'm sure affects other peoples opinions on these cars.

There are some positives about the '73's. They are the most refined cars of the early Z's.

Best Regards,

Landmizzle '71 and '72
