    '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. 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.
  2. Mike, Please delete. This car was already posted. Sorry.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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."
  7. I agree - the car must have come from somewhere else. In the last picture, the seller only gives us a small glimpse of what lurks on the underneath side of this Series I.
  8. More like a year or two and she'll be as good as new!
  9. Asking price $7,800.00. Here's the link: https://louisville.craigslist.org/cto/d/louisville-datsun-fairlady-rhd/6935666206.html
  10. Here's a '71 Series I for sale on Craigslist in Fresno, CA with an asking price of $5K. Here's the link: https://fresno.craigslist.org/cto/d/clovis-z/6935562364.html
  11. The Series I choke/throttle mechanism with cables on eBay sold for $1,588.89!
  12. Mike, My understanding was that the Vintage Z currently on BaT had air conditioning added by one of the owners at some point after the car was purchased in 1997. I also remember reading a number of years ago that the Vintage Zs were not equipped with A/C and that a lot of the cars came with a blank cover or a "radio delete" plate where the radio usually goes. Back in 2004, my son and I saw one of the VZ cars, HLS30-40904, a Monte Carlo Red '71 Series II sitting on the showroom floor at Peak Nissan in Littleton, CO. The dealership had purchased the car from a gentleman in Florida, who bought it in 1997. My son took a few pictures including the interior of the car, showing the radio delete plate. I'm not sure if all of the Vintage Zs came with radio delete covers, perhaps 26th-Z can confirm this.
