Z's on BAT and other places collection


Recommended Posts

Thanks for that backstory... I actually didn't know. I'm early in my journey of first recreational car purchase! I suspect this guy doesn't know much about the car or came into it in a way he isn't disclosing.

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.

I believe that the Mustang you reference was sold as a 1964.5.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Mustang_(first_generation)

Beautiful car, but shouldn't the radio be AM only?

I think you're correct given it has an early console. 

Also, interesting placement of the A/C control on the passenger side.  Too bad there's a lot of orange peel on the paint finish for a car tickling a six-digit selling price.

Oh my... Its now 89000 $  ..   Right door top does not fit at all! (Pic 26)  and the hood alignment could be much better.. the airfilter is the wrong one i think.. (should not have the cold /hot switching device..)  

This color in/out .. Ofcourse it's a matter of taste but i hate this colorcombo.. jak!

$89K amazing and unbelievable  - I looks beautiful - -  HOWEVER, given the condition of the engine and engine compartment - there are enough Quality Points to deduct there alone - to knock it out of Category #1 or #2 Condition. This is most certainly NOT yet a Concours example.

 
The Air Cleaner is correct for a Series II 1971. However none of the parts that should be bright shinny Yellow Chromated are “restored”.  Brake lines, Fuel Lines, Carb. Linkages, Air Injection tubes, Fuel Rails, nuts/bolts etc.  Many of the fuel/water rubber hoses are incorrect (old/worn). 
 
Non-stock/original exhaust system.
Incorrect Splash Pan added
Hood hinges should be body color
Hood torsos bars should be black
Horns are wrong color
 
Seats are installed on the wrong side
Dimond vinyl on the rear shock towers wrinkled/sloppy
Metal Rivits on the Tail Light Finisher Panels?
 
Beautiful 240Z, I’d love to have it… but market pricing realistically might be something closer to $65K - maybe a bit more with full photo. documentation of how the body work was done..

Not sure why people put these crazy body kits on these cars. I think it totally ruins the car. To each his own I guess but my Dad used to tell me as a kid. “You never own anything, you are just a temporary care taker”
So always consider that when you decide to mod your car build an odd house or do anything that would offend future potential owners.

I was watching this and just saw that it didn’t meet the reserve. Makes me wonder just how high the seller wants it to go.

I was wondering the same. The comments indicates that the seller was not very cooperative. Maybe not the right word, but he definitely was not making much of an effort.

391 is on BAT.  Says No Reserve.  Needs a resto.  Some surprising small problems.

Understandable, it's an east coast thing, an amazingly huge spectacle. It would take 2-3 days just to give everything a quick glance, kind of a pilgrimage.

Do you have a link?  I'm not sure what list you mean, the whole thread is a list and the last car is a 70 or a 71.  Do you mean 391?  The 11/69 build?

Also don't know what Hershey is.

Hershey, Pennsylvania. 

I first read about it 30 or so years ago, and have wanted to go ever since.
