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

    Look what I found.

    @wrecked2001 Tell us more about this Series I 240Z. Is it for sale? If so, are you looking to purchase the car yourself? If you're not, how much is the seller asking for the car? Please let us know, as we are all very interested.

    Good progress and looks to be a solid car. Thanks for posting the pics!

    Found this snap shot of myself when I was in college (circa 1980) standing next to my very first 240Z #HLS30-59523. The car was repainted black from its original 115 Blue Metallic by the previous owner, the body shop manager of a Datsun Dealership. Had the car for about 3 years before I sold it. Not sure of the car's whereabouts today.

    Ugliest Z ever?

    Ugly Zs have been covered a few times before over the years. Here's a good thread from a couple years ago called "Zs Only a Mother Could Love":

    THE RESTORATION OF CAR #304

    The underside looks solid - typical SoCal 240Z! The eBay listing from October didn't show any pictures of the underside.

    THE RESTORATION OF CAR #304

    Hiyabrad, Earlier today on the "HLS30-00304 Up for Auction on eBay" thread that Zed Head posted a link to in post #4 of this thread you said: "I bought #304!" My response was: " Congratulations, Hiyabrad! We were all wondering what happened since the eBay link (in the first post of this thread) showed that the car didn't sell back in October. I assume that the seller also had it up for sale locally and that's how you bought it. Please let us know what you plan to do with the car when you get a chance, we are all very interested." Just curious, do you plan to have #304 restored back to its original 904 Blue paint color?

    Parts car in Van Nuys

    Cool, an early '72 model with an 11/71 build date with lots of good parts. The early '72 models have the non-retractable seat belts, blank plastic plug in the fuse box cover where the safety belt light goes starting in 1/72 and the vertical defroster lines in the rear hatch glass - tough to find nowadays. I'm surprised that the rear hatch glass did not break!

    '72 240z on eBay - With a Very Low Buy It Now Price - Hurry!

    Yes, that could very well be. Looks to be a pretty solid car. The automatic transmission can be changed out to a 4 or 5-speed. Price looks to be low for the car's condition.
  12. Only $11,300.00 for this '72 new eBay listing and here's the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1972-Datsun-Z-Series/123623517243?hash=item1cc8892c3b:g:5s0AAOSwZddb48NU:rk:4:pf:0&vxp=mtr
  13. Here's a '73 custom 240Z that sold for $48,400.00 (includes buyer commission) in late September 2018 at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction: https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1973-DATSUN-240Z-CUSTOM-COUPE-222608
  14. Jayhawk, My first 240Z I bought when I was in college. It was a '72 with a build date of 12/71. At some point, one of the prior owners installed an L26 engine with flat tops. It was actually a pretty quick car, but it had some vapor lock issues during the summer months. I had the car for about 3 years before I sold it. The other 240Zs that I've owned since then all had round tops and I only experienced a couple of summer vapor locking incidents. My past personal experience plus all the discussion in the Z community and on this website ( member since 2004) has led me to believe that flat tops are inferior to the round tops.
  15. True Black Pearl with Paint Code 638 that needs a lot of work. At $1,000.00 and listing ends soon on eBay. Here's the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1978-Datsun-Z-Series-BLACK-PEARL-EDITION/163499977529?hash=item26115bab39:g:q7kAAOSwNJJcQJdW:rk:22:pf:0&vxp=mtr
