That is more like a history than a reputation. 

I am constantly amazed at how well 240zguild guy sells cars.  During auctions, he is always dropping comments about some past transaction that implies expertise. If you look at past auctions that aren't even his, he always sells himself and his shop in his comments seemingly just to get his name out there. "When we do our cars...".  He is very subtle about it. He blessed this one at the end of the auction to make the buyer feel that he got a good price. Its a pretty good business model if you know how to sell used cars.  Give yourself a name that implies expertise and double the price of what you sell.

Technical Information:

USA AND CANADA parts reference; revised December 1973

     80900-E4600  RH and 80901-E4600 LH up to 06/72.  Nothing said about the door handle and the parts diagram shows the RH (passenger) door.

Nissan Fairlady Z Parts Catalog 1972 from 1969

     80900-E4100 / E4101 (RH) and 80901-E4100 / E4101 (LH).  Distinguishing between LH and RH drive and the parts diagram shows the driver's door without the handle.

Both of my cars did not have the handle on the driver's door.  My opinion of why the driver's door didn't get a handle is because it protrudes into the "sphere of control and accessibility" for the driver.  We can't get proper driver's door (LH) any more because they are NLA and there are plenty of Japanese domestic passenger door finishers available.
