Z's on BAT and other places collection


Recommended Posts

I could dig out and reinstall the original parts and get somewhere around $39K for mine I think. Hagerty guy from Birmingham appraised it at $40K a few years ago after looking at it.

I don't see when this ad was posted.  I know I've seen this one listed for sale before though.

 

Listed for sale about 7 weeks ago in the southern half of Florida, says Facebook.

The prices are trending up.  That 300K one really screws up the resolution.  I filtered it out.

I've found it's fun to try and find very similar 240's (same year, condition, and, ideally, colour as well) and look at their trends in relation to one another over the past few years, then to compare those to another z. Like, how's a '71 price been going compared to a '72 - both in good, but not excellent condition?

Looks like a good solid base

The shifter looks weird though

It's one of the most rust-free cars you'll find outside of the southwest US, but the frame rails have been beaten up completely from idiots using them as jacking points. 

The funny thing is that I set the valve lash, changed the oil and balanced the carburetors before the seller bought the car. And I got advice on setting the carbs at high RPM from the person the seller hired to set the valve lash, change the oil and balance the carburetors. The only thing he didn't mention is setting the dwell, which I did as well. LOL

Yes, a little weird.  Still it is a 5spd installed in a 70/71 240Z. So the shift lever has most likely been modified so as not to hit the front of the center console. Cut and re-welded perhaps to lay back that way.

I will say that I didn't notice anything strange about the shifter position while driving it.

Maybe it's just in 4th gear.

People are placing a lot of value on the 400Z and the marketing hype.  I would have taken the money.  Doubtful that the work done was worth the difference.

57,500 - 24,240 = 33,260

10k is alot for that car. It's got rusty dog legs and probably rockers too. Battery tray...

Is it a good buy at 5k???

When I saw it last night it was listed as $1 (trying to entertain all offers, I suppose). I didn't notice the change.

I think I'd consider something around $5k depending on the issues in person... probably less considering the tens of thousands it would need.

The car is down there in harmony01's neighborhood, and, "Location is approximate".

I missed the "See more" on the description.  Lost title.  Needs driveway space.  Not clear if he ever had the title in his name.  Still has Washington plates.

PLEASE READ (If posted in the wrong area please delete) I AM TAKING SERIOUS OFFERS ON THE CAR Hello, I am selling this 1971 datsun 240z It has a manual transmission that shifts great Not really in a rush to get rid of it but the extra driveway space would be nice. The car ran perfectly but the carb was acting up so it was removed and it hasn’t been put back on since. Floor pans and battery tray need to be replaced, lost the title (but it is clean) a while ago, carburetor not included, tiny spots of rust here and there but overall good condition. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask, thanks

It's a 1972 240Z...

 

I saw September '71 on the door jam plate. Does the year of manufacture run a year in advance of the model year?

Since the mid 50's the "New" models for the Coming Calendar Year have been introduced a few months before 1 January of the coming year. In the mid to late 1950's "New Models" were put on display and open to the Public - at the local Authorized Dealership on Nov 1 of the current year. As competition got more serious, Manufacturers tried to bet the completion to the show room floor - so they started introducing new models Oct 1 - by the mid 60's new models were being introduced by Sept. 1.   As I recall Ford introduced the New 1965 Mustang in April of 1964.   Now the funny thing is NISSAN said they will introduce the New 2023 Z Car in the Spring of 2022.

By the way - the VIN #47358 on that car is the Key - - The 1972 Model Year Datsun 240Z's started with VIN HLS30 46001.
