My Z Cars

  • About My Cars
    '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

    1970 240Z in SD. Surprised if this lasts one day.

    #1578, located in Wichita Falls, TX sold for $12k on eBay. Was that you who won the auction, lordkarma88?

    $32K is at least $10k too high for this car. The seller is going to have trouble selling the car at that price. Here's a '70 that isn't as original, but has a lower VIN (#1578) and is currently at a far better price on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Datsun-Z-Series/142968044223?hash=item21498f3abf:g:zM4AAOSw5SpbwlkP:rk:12:pf:0&vxp=mtr s-l1600 (3).jpg.crdownload

    HLS30-00304 Up For Auction on eBay

    I agree, it will be very interesting. I would hope that whoever wins the auction spends the money to get the car back to original condition including its original 903 Blue paint, correct steel wheels with D hubcaps, Series I steering wheel, Hitachi AM radio, leather shift boot, etc. Overall, this car is in so much better shape than the other '69 production 240Zs we've seen lately on BaT and eBay.

    Here's the link for this 1969 production 240Z located in California: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Datsun-Z-Series-240Z/352480358337?hash=item5211776fc1:g:AhcAAOSwLXNbu8PC:rk:3:pf:0&vxp=mtr

    vin 181

    I get the feeling that it won't go as high as $9200.00 as it did on on eBay. Makes me wonder what happened with the eBay auction winner and any of the "second chance" bidders that had an opportunity to buy the car.

    I just bought a 1-owner early 71 240Z

    Excellent price for a Series I car. Congrats, Chuck!

    vin 181

    That's higher than I expected it would go for considering the large amount of rust damage and the non-matching engine number. However, the winning bid does make a statement about the rise in value of the '69 production 240Zs, Series I 240Zs and all 240Zs in general.

    vin 181

    Agreed. Way too rusty and missing its original matching-numbers engine. Even in the bad shape it's in, the car will probably end selling for more than $7k due to its sub-200 VIN.

    I would agree, the guy who put the video together had too much time on his hands, but I sure like his video!

    Yes, very strange, putting Kirk and company back in 1881 at the OK Corral. Space cowboys wanting to kill them - one of my favorite episodes. Kirk is pretty much a space cowboy himself. Check out this video:

    '71 240Z on eBay with its Original Paint?

    Thanks for posting the 2 pictures, Jerry. You make a good point about this car, it may have its original paint, but it's not a solid survivor and the multiple rust issues have to be addressed. It's a shame about the issues, but it is still a good candidate for a full restoration.

    '71 240Z on eBay with its Original Paint?

    I would keep the original paint and thoroughly clean the car inside and out. I would then have a pro adjust the passenger door/ right front fender fit issues, remove the glue from the black 240Z stripes on both side, have paintless dent repair done, buff-out the paint, replace the front bumper and hood emblem with good used ones. Series I and II 240Zs with original paint are just too hard to find and that is the very reason that the seller is asking $20k or best offer for the car.
