This is the one you have been looking for! Rare, 1-Owner, numbers matching, Accident-free, Series 1 Datsun 240Z with just 94k miles. Extensive receipts, records & notes from new, including the original sales receipt. Included in that receipt are the dealer-installed, period-correct Mag Wheels, and Air Conditioning. Other tasteful period updates include the Hella door mirrors, Two-Up exhaust, and louvered rear sunshade. Garage kept from new and wonderfully maintained. This is a 240Z that you can have 100% confidence in the condition, enjoying it the way it was meant to: by driving it! Detailed Records are available starting from the date of purchase.

This Datsun impresses with the untouched engine compartment and the used but preserved originality throughout. The exterior has all of its original body panels. The body is straight, and panel gaps are factory correct throughout. The minimal chrome is original, and all fasteners are factory-correct. Original badging is free of cracks and has a lovely patina while still shining brightly. Records show this car was repainted in the 1990s; paint prep work was excellent, resulting in a durable finish that continues to shine three decades later with no underlying issues.

Underhood, the Datsun impresses with its originality. Well-maintained for 49 years, this engine bay has a patina that will never be replicated. Factory paint on all inner fenders is clean and intact, as is the paint on the original air cleaner box. All wiring and hoses are in good condition, with no degradation. Factory original stickers are in place throughout. There are no leaks from the engine, radiator, or any reservoirs. Radiator, fan, and minimal shroud are original and in great condition.

Moving inside, the Datsun continues to display originality and gorgeous patina. The dash pad is original and is smooth and even, without any cracks or signs of prior repairs (Amazing!). The central control stack is original, as are all gauges and the clock. The Center tunnel is original with intact; the diamond pressed vinyl is free of any cracks or tears. The shift and parking brake boots are free of blemishes. The original, dealer-installed A/C controls are tastefully mounted in their own pod on the console's left side, rather than ruining the original dash/console. Please note that the AC is not working. The steering wheel is intact, with no cracks in the plastic or wood. There are signs of thumbs wrapped around the wheel at 3 & 9 spokes and minor wear on the gear shift knob, telling a 49-year story of driving enjoyment.

Underbody tells another take of originality and preservation. The condition is original and very impressive. No rust, except for the typical oxidation at the inner fender frame rail on both sides. We have undertaken the factory-correct repair, removing the panel on both sides and replacing them with 2-plates on each side, using a slightly thicker metal for added rigidity and strength. A detailed video for this work and the condition of the underbody is available and the complete vehicle overview video. We encourage you to review all available videos detailing vehicle conditions.
