1971 240Z For Sale in San Diego, CA

This is an adult-owned, 12-70 production date early ("series 1" as they are referred to) 1971 model year Datsun 240Z.

It has been very well cared for over the past few years since being purchased here locally by its current owner.

The car originally began its life in butterscotch, but it was re-sprayed with deep blue-metallic. The entire car was painted (including the engine bay), anti-corrosion treated and the bottom undercoated. The front and rear bumpers have been powder-coated black. This is a five-star paint job; to date, only a couple flaws are visible near the front end which were caused by rock chips.

The exterior will speak volumes about the care this car has received, but that isn't the only thing special about it. The driveline consists of a High Performance L28 (rebuilt, performance cam, ceramic coated headers, N42 cylinder head) & a 5-speed 280ZX transmission. These features are further enhanced by a three row radiator and ZX electronic ignition, and Carroll Shelby slotted mag wheels. The entire powertrain was built by Classic Datsun Motorsports in Vista, CA. In addition, for the buyer who seeks authenticity, the car's original 2.4 litre engine with matching ID number and "2400" valve cover will be included with the sale of the vehicle.

The car has been expertly kept in tune, driven regularly, and it won't disappoint--it's very fast!

I am only entertaining serious inquiries for this vehicle. This Z is as good as they come, it's an example of the most collectible period for these cars (70-71), and has in it already all the extras which everybody wants. You literally just have to turn the key & drive it away--everything works. I will happily answer any questions about it. Price is $10K. Not-negotiable. The owner is choosing to sell it because he's 74years old. He needs a vehicle he can get in & out of more easily and which has a bigger trunk for his golf clubs. Ph# 619-287-9671.
