    1972 240Z

    An appreciating classic priced below Hagerty price guide, this 1972 Datsun 240Z is considered the best of the model years. With a 10/71 production date, the car has a vertical rear window defroster without the deck lid vents. It has been in the possession of the current owner for 5 years. This original matching numbers car (orange #918) has been meticulously maintained by its four previous owners and retains the period look of a classic Zcar and considered an excellent driver. Service records from the three previous owners dates back to the late 70’s. It was resprayed in 1986 in the original color. The 2.4 L engine is original to the car with 123,505 actual miles. A 5-speed gear box was added by a previous owner and documented in the records. the car drives and pulls through the gears as it should. The car does not drip any oil or fluids and everything is tight. The engine is clean, but has not been pulled by the current owner to be completely detailed. The paint has some small chips on the front edge of the hood, a blemish from the removal of body-side molding on the passenger-side door and small glue mark from side molding on the passenger-side quarter panel. The imperfections are noted in the photographs. The car is rust-free and accident free. The car has modest upgrades to improve comfort and drivability that were installed by the current and previous owners which include: updated air conditioning system, 3-row aluminum radiator, Mazda Miata seats, 4-piston calipers and electronic ignition. All of the original equipment (seats and radiator) have been retained for original value. All the rubber window gaskets are new. Chrome is excellent. It comes with the original owner’s warranty card, owners manual and tool kit. The original radio was replaced by a previous owner. The vehicle is currently garaged in Virginia Beach, VA, after arriving at a Miami, FL Datsun Dealership and spending 39 years in Florida. Since acquired in 2011 the current owner has added/replaced the following: Fuel system: SU carburetors rebuilt byTidewater Z Auto Service Fuel tank cleaned/coated by Tidewater Z Pertronix electronic ignition NGK plugs K&N air filter Valve adjustment/valve cover gasket by Tidewater Brakes: - Upgraded 4-piston front brake calipers (Toyota 4x4)/ceramic pads - New rear brake cylinders/shoes Other: Clutch slave cylinder Upgraded wiring harness- headlight/parking light Glove box All the rubber/ weather stripping has been replaced Purchased/not installed: BRE front spoiler Motorsport Front air dam 240z alternator upgrade adapter STAGG Struts and Vogtland lowering springs kit Extra weather strip kit NOS Rear bumper rubber trim (scratch on right rear-got it treat) Serious inquiries only - contact owner by e-mail for telephone number and additional photos ASKING PRICE $26,000.00
  3. This vehicle, which has always resided in Florida is in excellent condition compared to other Datsun 240Z's which are often found rusted out. The owner bought this (nearly) rust-free car as a project destined for a performance build. Being mechanically inclined, the customer is going to be doing all the assembly and upgrades but wanted us to take care of the body restoration.
  4. Hi everyone. Hope you had a great new year and are enjoying the new changes to the Classic Zcar Club. Here’s a quick update about our status. Data Migration: The migration from our old site is 90% complete and you should see a much improved experience when compared to our old software. There are quite a few new features and I am a believer the interface is a lot easier to use. I’ve also checked to make sure our old site URL’s are now linking to the new site. If you have an old link that isn’t working, please send me the URL and I’ll see if we can get it mapped to the new site. Gallery: Over the last few weeks I’ve also been able to finish the gallery and invite you to take a look at the newly improved interface. There are improvements to the gallery in user contributions, navigation, and a much easier interface to upload files. The gallery also integrates into user profiles much better allowing a lot more capability around albums and private uploads. The one new feature I’m excited about is the ability to allow users to create categories in the public area. This is very nice for the administrators because we won’t need to create new categories every time someone wants to post new pictures (especially for events). I invite you to give it a try and let me know what you think. Store: I was also able to bring our store online. With the introduction of the store, we are now able to accept contributions and subscriptions. This means that anyone who contributes to the site will have a few additional benefits. These benefits are substantially reduced advertising banners, access to our new downloads area, and other small perks like larger private messaging limits and the infamous gold star. The membership system is fully integrated into the store, so, when you want to make a change to your subscription, it’s tied directly into your user account. Everything is together now, nothing is separate. Downloads: We also added more files to the download area such as wiring diagrams, EFI manual, and other service bulletins. As mentioned above, I am only planning to let contributing members access to this area. We are doing this to not only raise money for the site, but, also to avoid letting unauthorized people from uploading things we may not want to see. We have a lot of files to add to the downloads module, so please let me know if you have some time to help out. I anticipate this area will be a very good place for people to come and exchange files with each other. Blogs & Tech Articles: There are few dozen people who use the blogs and tech articles section on a consistent basis. The original conversion of these modules was a bit messed up, so, I’ve needed some help getting these back online. All of the original data is still in tact, I simply need to sit down for 3-4 hours and make this conversion happen again. As soon as this is complete, these sections will be back to their former glory. Advertising: Ever since we made the move to the new system, our position on Google dropped quite a bit. There are various reasons why I think this happened, but, the number one reason was due to the software change. As we moved from one to the other, many of our links were modified. I’ve been working on building the redirects and we have had a great success rate at this. However, there were quite a number of changes that haven't updated yet. Because of this, Google bots have been rescanning our site and slowly rebuilding their sitemaps. This will remedy itself, but I think it will take more time. Some other sites have reported that it takes Google around 4-6 months to rebuild their position and this was somewhat anticipated. We will get there, it will just take a few more months of spider crawling. Finances: The biggest impact on this change was our bottom line. Our advertising income from Google dropped more than half. I have no doubt that we will recoup the advertising income over the year but it will be a challenge. Because of this, I’ve started looking into other advertising programs and you may see some of those pop up on the site as they are ran through an experimental stage. I’ll do my best to assure advertising is done with class and will try not to defer from your use of the site. We are also looking into taking credit cards directly so we can minimize the confusion around Paypal redirects. Contributions: As you use the website I encourage you to participate, and better yet, send me your ideas. For instance, if you see an area on the site that needs a change, please let me know about it. You can take a screenshot and send me a PM or you can post a message in our website development forum. Likewise, if you see an ad you like, for instance a Jeep catches your eye, please click on the ad and take a look at their website. I also encourage those of you who use this site on a consistent basis to help contribute to our success. We have subscriptions in the store which helps pay the bills. When you contribute in any amount, the Google ads disappear. Classifieds: I am also looking to integrate classifieds back into our site. Please let me know what you think about this idea. While classifieds will never be put back into our forums, we now have the capability to integrate with a separate menu item. Mobile App: Our old mobile app (Z.Life) will no longer function on this new website. We are looking at developing a new app but in the meantime our site integrates with Tapatalk. If you are currently a Tapatalk user, the system should notify you that our site is available on that platform. The custom mobile app is planned for later on this year. Website Theme: Right now we are sticking to the current theme called “Zdash”… the theme has been working fine since we made the template changes to improve usability. As far as I know, most everyone is liking the theme and we may only change colors or implement new logos in the future. I’m sure as the year moves on, we will start looking at other ideas on theme design. Training: I’ve been experimenting with video training lately and you can see a sample of my work in our website forum. The advantage of training using this method is to help people visualize and get the most out of our site. While I may not be the best host for this job, it’s been a fun project to work on as I have free time. If anyone else is interested in putting together a video training, feel free to add your video to the website forum. There are plenty of people who will find it useful. More Cars: I’ve also been thinking about our current list of supported cars. As I think about the potential of doing this, I want to be careful that we maintain the original purpose of our club. The main purpose is to support and encourage people to keep the Classic Z going forward. However, as I see this culture of classic owners starting to dwindle either into sellling or into serious modifications, I tend to wonder what is the real purpose of our existence. As I do this, I start to believe that all classic Datsuns seem to fit into a similar purpose. As we go down this road over the next year, I’d like to know if you guys have any opinions in this matter. While I don’t think we will open the site to a crowd of modern Z owners, I do think there is additional opportunity to expand into the later model cars as well as looking into other Datsuns. This is a tough topic but I think it warrants a few constructive conversations, don’t you? All-in-all, I’d like to express my thanks for your patience as we made the move and continue to develop such a fun place. The Classic Z has always held a place in my heart, and always will. I look forward to interacting with all of you as we continue into 2015. Don’t forget to check out the store and sign up for a subscription. Thanks everyone, Mike Gholson a.k.a. Moderator Mike
  5. I thought this was pretty interesting. Cuba's way of keeping classics alive through the US embargo. http://www.ahametals.com/theyre-alive-cubas-frankenstein-classic-cars/
  6. Hi guys, I haven't posted on the Zed forums for a while as I've been working on another project, a 1968 Isuzu Bellett Deluxe sedan. On this note a new website (www.bellett.net) is opening soon and a forum has opened, based in Australia at www.bellett.net/forums and caters for all the Bellett needs of the country... Funnily enough the need is not great but as this is another Japanese classic and a contemporary to the Datsun Fairlady I thought I would post here for interest sake. Anyway, drop through and have a look. We are adding brochures, history and technical info everyday as the site grows. We are also keen on other Japanese cars of the day and under the 'Events' section car shows all over Australia will be listed, and possibly the world as we grow. Come along say hi and if your in Oz we might catch up on the roads somewhere Cheers, Ross
