Looking for a little expertise from this forum. I have a Datsun 240Z that has been stored in my garage for over 25 years. It's all stock, but is missing the transmission. It's spent it's entire life in Southern California so the body is still in good shape. It hasn't been driven since 1989. I've been lead to believe that because it's one of the early cars imported into the USA, and because it's all original components, it's rare to find these days. The VIN is in the low 2000's. Is it best to offer this through eBay? What should I know or do before I offer for sale? Thanks all
I've owned an early '71 (8/70, 8325) since 1975. I've moved since the purchase, so the title does not show the original owner. The serial number VIN does't work in today's VIN checkers. I've attempted to contact the selling dealer, with no luck. (I understand that it was the first Z that they sold.) Since I was 19 at the time, I didn't keep my sales receipt from when I bought it from the first owner. I'm open to all suggestions on where to go from here. What have you done to document the history of your car? DannDZ
So there was a discussion recently here. About non-defrost glass as being fitted to early 240z's delivered in the US (maybe 1969 dated cars?) but interestingly Nissan gave all HS30's delivered to Australia no defrost options (or it was an option but I've not seen any 240z's in Australia with this glass) up until the 1974 260z which didn't get the sexy vertical defrost glass, instead they got the horizontal lined glass. Anyway this was tough to photograph in the dark of a garage but this is the glass out of HS30 00150 a 1970 delivered HS30. As you can see it has the stamp M-214. The early US cars with clear glass (and no defrost) have the code M-214 and later cars with tinted glass (and defrost) have the code M-224 according to MikeB in the other thread. Personally I've always liked the vertical defrost glass look. The orange on the right is from an old sticker / emblem.
