    '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. 1972 Datsun 240Z Low Miles! - $32,000 (Denver) https://denver.craigslist.org/cto/d/henderson-1972-datsun-240z-low-miles/7225870950.html Seller states that the car has 37k original miles. If that's really the case (which I question) the car is dramatically under priced!
  2. I agree with you about the listing - next to nothing in terms of a description and only a single picture of the car. I briefly spoke with the seller and he seemed to be a really nice guy. He told me that he bought the 240Z from the original owner and he has all of the original manuals, warranty book, window sticker, repair receipts and mileage documentation. The seller also mentioned that he replaced the rear bumper since it was damaged in a rear collision to the car. He also pulled the small dent out and did some very minor body work before installing a brand new rear bumper that the original owner had purchased many years ago and had been sitting in his garage.
  3. I agree, the price seems just about right for both parties. I was glad to see that the reserve was set a reasonable amount for this beautiful 280Z. It will be interesting to see what the auction winner does with the car - does he drive the car every once in a while or will this car be a trailer queen that is just towed to car shows? It will also be interesting to see what becomes of one of the lowest mileage classic sports cars in the world.
  4. Seller is located in the Kansas City, MO area and is asking $15k. The seller's name is Jerry and he can be reached at 816-215-1822. Here's the link: https://kansascity.craigslist.org/cto/d/kansas-city-1973-datsun-240z-original/7233298213.html
  5. Brunodoggy - looks like your car is up to $100k now. A car like yours will do well no matter what time of year you decide to put it up for auction. I think that $100k is just the starting point for your Z and I have a feeling that it will go for much higher than the current $100k bid. Good luck to you!
  6. She's a beauty! You don't see the 110 Red paint color very often. Good luck to your buddy - I think that his 280Z will do very well with the auction.
  7. This 280Z belongs in a museum! That way, more people can see this beauty versus having the car sit in some collector's garage.
  8. Already at $90k on the first day of the auction! I recognize this 280Z as a member's car here on Classic Z cars! Here's the link: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1976-datsun-280z-39/
  9. Here are a few pictures of the late great Marty Feldman:
  10. I see that the seller still continues to call the car a "1970 Datsun Z Series"' when it is actually a 1971 model year 240Z built in 12/70. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Datsun-Z-Series/203164461998?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908131621%26meid%3D072e35cfb7354ae2b593a0e4e26e592b%26pid%3D100678%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D203164461998%26itm%3D203164461998%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100678.m3607&_trkparms=pageci%3Ae3a5b268-1eab-11eb-8485-46d8f547cc95|parentrq%3A93b50bc61750a9e391131f35fff2143e|iid%3A1
  11. Wow, your '71 240Z sat for almost 40 years without being started - incredible! Just think about that for a moment, the car was only 10 years old when you parked it. Congrats on bringing the old girl back to life!
  12. I have to agree, those headlights are ridiculous!
  13. Seller is asking $48k and is located in Santa Rosa, CA. Here's the link: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/cto/d/santa-rosa-extremely-rare-jdm-1970/7224018781.html Extremely Rare 1970 Datsun 240Z Fairlady JDM Right-hand Drive This award winning 1st year production collectable car has less than 80k original miles. The Fairlady Z was introduced in October 1969 as a 1970 model, with separate versions for the Japanese and U.S. markets. The Japanese Fairlady Z, like this beauty, featured a 2.0L SOHC L20A straight-six engine producing 130 hp (97 kW) and came with a five-speed manual transmission with a top speed of 151 mph. Fairlady Z is the first generation of Z GT 3-door two-seat coupés, produced by Nissan Motors, Ltd. of Japan from 1969 to 1978. When the Fairlady Z was exported overseas it was called the Datsun 240Z. One of the most successful sports car lines ever produced, the trend-setting S30 was designed by a team led by Yoshihiko Matsuo, the head of Nissan's Sports Car Styling Studio. The 240Z's sleek styling, modern engineering, relatively low price, and impressive performance struck a major chord with the public. Positive response from both buyers and the motoring press was immediate, and dealers soon had long waiting lists for the "Z". (*thank you wikipedia) I’ve owned this car for 30 years. In 1989 while I was wrenching at Mel Clayton Ford in Santa Barbara it came in as a trade. The previous owner's wife wouldn't let him get a new car until he got rid of an old one. He drove this one the least of the ones he owned so it was the first to go. I bought it from Mel Clayton immediately. It was in pristine condition, although I did have the bumpers re-chromed at the time. I've entered it only once to a car show and it won 2nd place for its class at the June 2007 ZONC. Over the years I’ve enjoyed caring for this treasure. The items I’ve upgraded and the spare parts included are described below (including a newly rebuilt L28 engine long block--see photos). I’ve retained all the receipts. If you’re interested in the car and have any questions please call me, I love talking about this car. This is a low-mile vehicle due to JDM right-hand drive configuration. It's been garaged for most of its life and has all original parts, except for handling and safety upgrades, electric fuel pump, and removal of Emissions Controls (I still retain original EC parts). Interior is in very good condition including the original rosewood steering wheel. There are some cracks in the dash and some other wear. Seats were replaced with used ones and are in good condition. It does have small rust spots beginning to show in places, a door sill is rusted (I do have 2 replacement doors that are included). It has a repaired driver-side floor pan. Vehicle was repainted at least once (scuff-n-shoot). It has a new OEM heater/radio bezel and an after-market Alpine stereo. I’ve added aftermarket custom LED lighting to the interior and undercarriage. Spare Parts: (Not Currently Installed on Vehicle): 1975 L25 Modified engine (complete long block with triple Weber setup and electronic ignition) 3-to-2-to-1 header exhaust system Fiberglass body mods (front and rear skirting, finder flares, hood scoop, and rear spoiler) Two spare complete doors Two transmissions one 5-speed and one 4-speed One 1972 rear differential Multiple suspension components Upgraded front & rear disk brakes Many small parts collected over a 30yr period If I removed a part that could be put back on I kept it.
  14. My vote would be not to have political rants on this site. I have always thought that this site, just like sports is an escape from the political B.S. Please find a political site to your liking and do your venting there.
