    '71 240Z: Purchased in AZ in 2007. Rebuilt original matching engine. 904 White with rare Blue interior. Professional bare metal paint restoration, refreshed interior, re-chromed bumpers, etc. This car was my third refresh project since 2004. Previously, my son and I refreshed a '71 918 Orange/blk int as well as a '72 904 White/blk int and both of these cars also had original matching engine numbers. Presently, my latest '71 is the only Z I have at the present time. I had a '72 while I was in college in the late '70s & early '80s and my wife had a '79 280ZX when I first met her through the ea

  1. An update on HLS30-01032 almost 10 years since the last post: I did a Google search on HLS30-01032 and found it on IZCC's Classic Z Car Register - http://www.zhome.com/IZCC/ZRegisters/classic.htm I have also attached one of the pictures of the car that the seller posted on the original Cragslist back in 2006. VIN:HLS30 01032 Production Date:01/70 Color Body /Int:Orange/Black Orig.Eng.Number:L24-4056 Owner:John Odell City/State/Cntry:Woodland Park, CO, USA IZCC Member#:554 Comments: e-mail: johnodellmd@msn.com Date Registered:18 Aug. 09, & 3/22/10
  2. Wheels are stamped 10-1970 and the D hubcaps are the earlier version. Also includes the original spare wheel with its original Toyo tire. Seller is asking $3,500.00. Here's the link and the seller's description: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/pts/d/albany-datsun-240z-topy-wheels-early/7024858826.html 1970 Datsun 240Z OEM Topy steel wheels & early D hub cap wheel cover that includes spare. “Full set” I bought these wheels close to 10 years ago from a guy who bought a series 1 240z new in 1970 off the show room floor. He had the dealer pull these steel wheels off and install the common aluminum wheels. The dealer stuck these steel wheels & hub caps in a box and he put them in his attic. One day while cleaning his attic he realized he still had these wheels after all these years. The boxes were weathered when I bought the wheels but the boxes kept the wheels and caps in great condition. He even had the original lug nuts. All the wheels have zero street miles aside from the rolling off the assembly line and being loaded on and off the boat and to the dealer. One of the boxes which was the one on the top took the brunt of the weathering so one of the caps has minimal oxidation. The rest of the early style D caps are in new conditions. If you look at the spare it has the same type of wear patterns (where the wheel meets the hub) as the 4 wheels. All 5 topy (oem) wheels are matching date codes of 10/70. The hub caps are the early version where the valve stem hole lines up with the spoke. The spare tire still wears its original Toyo tire from when it left the factory with zero wear & holds air. The wheels have been sitting in my loft in new individual boxes to avoid damage and moisture. It’s not common a full set like this comes up for sale. With the prices of some Datsun 240z cars hitting six figures this full set of matching date coded TOPY wheels and early D hubcaps with spare tire with original Toyo rubber will be perfect for the collector or high end restoration.
  3. I just checked the listing again and the seller must have sold the cars, as it was deleted.
  4. The 1970 240Z's serial number is HLS30-07301 plus Three 260Zs and a ton of parts. All located in Albuquerque, NM. Here's the link: https://albuquerque.craigslist.org/cto/d/albuquerque-datsun-240z-260z/7017662011.html
  5. Check out this 1970 240Z in Syracuse, NY, asking price $6,500.00. Brian is the contact (315-263-2753). Here's the link: https://syracuse.craigslist.org/cto/d/liverpool-1970-datsun-240z-rare/7012480876.html
  6. I agree - this SoCal car should go for a good money. I also like that it's a no reserve auction.
  7. California car with original matching-numbers engine that looks to be very clean and unmolested. Here's the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-Datsun-Z-Series-240z-Series-1-Matching-Numbers-Rust-Free/184020206032?hash=item2ad87581d0:g:W-MAAOSwTNBdvGc3&autorefresh=true
  8. I was really thinking hard about bidding on the car towards the end of the auction since it's only 5 hours south on I-25 of where I live here in Colorado. But as soon as I got ready to place the $1,100.00 bid, I just knew that my wife would kill me since I already have 4 other 240Z project cars.
  9. Mike, Please delete. This car was already posted. Sorry.
  10. Unfortunately, the owner of Denver Bumper Works sold the land and the building to a pot company and the owner retired. The new owners of the property razed the building and built new grow houses. Here's a picture that I took soon after the building was razed in July of 2014. I really miss Denver Bumper. I don't think that there are any other chrome shops here in the Denver area.
  11. I didn't realize that the early Nissan Patrols were equipped with L24 engines just as the 240Zs were. L24-107 is a super low engine number!
  12. T The car is now listed on eBay. Funny thing is, he doesn't mention anything about the "original paint" this time around. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-Datsun-Z-Series/153583944431?hash=item23c25102ef:g:o~sAAOSwtEVdPlW1
  13. Three 260Zs and one 240Z located in Georgia.. Here's the link. https://nwga.craigslist.org/pts/d/blue-ridge-datsun-240z-and-260z-parts/6939694953.html "240Z comes with title, sidedrafts, and lots of rust. Not an early model. 260Zs are all restorable or excellent parts vehicles. All cars have interiors, trim, engines, etc. One 260Z is an automatic; all others are manuals. $1300 each or $1100 each if purchased in "bulk." Emails asking "Is this still available" will be ignored and set on fire. We will remove cars from yard for easy pickup."
