Description


UP FOR SALE IS MY 1971 DATSUN 240Z. I AM SELLING THE CAR BECAUSE I (READ MY FIANCEE) HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT ONE TWO SEATER VEHICLE IS ENOUGH, I ALSO HAVE A 93 300ZX CONVERTIBLE, LOVE Z CARS!. I do want to mention that I am advertising the car locally, so if you have an interest bid or purchase soon. I am relisting the car because it was bid upon and sold and then the buyer never paid or would even return my contact attempts, really upsetting.
THIS CAR HAS BEEN PARKED IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY CONTROLLED WAREHOUSE FOR THE LAST 9 YEARS, THE TITLE REFLECTS THIS FACT.I DID TAKE THE TITLE TO THE SCDMV AND THEY SAID THE TITLE IS CLEAR AND THE BUYER JUST NEEDS TO SIGN THEIR NAME.THE CAR HAS A TEN YEAR OLD PAINT JOB THAT STILL LOOKS GREAT OTHER THAN THE FEW REPAIRED SPOTS WHERE THE COLOR DOES NOT MATCH PERFECTLY.THIS CAR HAS ALL THE KEYS, EVEN THE ONE FOR THE GLOVE BOX.THE CAR ALSO HAS THE ORIGINAL SPARE TIRE COVER AND IT REALLY LOOKS LIKE THE ORIGINAL BRIDGESTONE MADE IN JAPAN SPARE IN BRAND NEW CONDITION.THE CAR ALSO HAS ALL THE TIRE TOOLS STILL IN THE ORIGNAL SOFT CASE, PRETTY NICE CAR.I AM NOT SURE IF IT HAS THE ORIGINAL ENGINE BUT IT NOW HAS A 5-SPEED VERSUS THE STOCK 4-SPEED, PERSONALLY I'D RATHER HAVE A 5-SPEED.
THE BODY IS STRAIGHT AND ALL PANELS LINE UP LIKE FROM THE FACTORY. THE INTERIOR OF THE CAR IS LIKE NEW OTHER THAN THE REAR CARPET NEEDS TO BE REPLACED, ITS JUST OLD, THE CAR STARTS RIGHT UP AND RUNS GREAT, AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURES THE ENGINE BAY IS VERY NICE AND CLEAN.THE ENGINE HAS JUST HAD A TOTAL TUNE-UP, POINTS/CONDENSER, DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR WIRES AND PLUGS; ALSO AN OIL/FILTER CHANGE.THE TIRES ARE BRAND NEW AS IS THE BATTERY.I HAVE DRIVEN THE CAR AROUND MY NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTS INTO ALL THE GEARS AND DOES NOT MAKE ANY SORTS OF "NOISES".
THE TRUNK AND BATTERY BOX DO NOT HAVE ANY SIGNS OF RUST. CAR HAS RUST IN JUST A FEW AREAS. THE HATCH LEDGE HAD ONE SMALL SPOT ¼” X 3/4” WHICH HAS BEEN REMOVED AND REPAIRED, SHOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM IN THE FUTURE. EACH FENDER HAD A RUST SPOT ¼” X 1/2” WHERE A FACTORY BRACKET IS ATTACHED UNDERNEATH IT, THESE SPOTS WERE REPAIRED.THE PASSENGER DOOR HAD A SLIGHT DENT, NOT RUST, WHICH WAS REPAIRED; IT LOOKED SOMEONE NAILED IT WHEN OPENING ANOTHER CAR DOOR IN A PARKING LOTIDIOTS.THE PASSENGER FLOOR LOOKS AS THOUGH THE A/C CONDENSER HOSE MUST HAVE LEAKED IN THE PAST AND GOTTEN TO THE FOOR BECAUSE IT HAS HAD A NEW FLOOR PAN INSTALLED, WHICH IS IN GOOD CONDITION AND ATTACHED TO GOOD SURROUNDING METAL.THIS SAME LEAKING LOOKS TO HAVE CAUSED SOME RUST UNDER THE PASSENGER SEAT, THIS HAS ALSO BEEN REPAIRED.THE DRIVERS SIDE FLOOR LOOKS FINE. THERE WAS A SLIGHT BIT OF SURFACE RUST AROUND THE HATCH GLASS AND NEAR THE 240Z BADGE THAT WAS REMOVED AND REPAINTED. THE DRIVERS SIDE HAS A LITTLE RUST UNDERNEATH THE CAR NEAR THE SEAT AREA AND A LITTLE ON THE FRONT FRAME RAIL, EASILY REMOVED AND REPAIRED AT THIS POINT.ENGINE BAY FRAME RAILS ARE STRAIGHT AND SOLID OTHER THAN THE PORTION THAT WAS AFFECTED BY THE PASSENGER FLOOR LEAK AREA. THE SAD TRUTH IS THESE CARS HAVE RUST PROBLEMS AND YOU JUST HAVE TO STAY AHEAD OF IT, THIS CAR HASN'T HAD ANY ATTENTION THE LAST 9 YEARS SO IT JUST NEEDS CATCHING UP.THE PASSENGER RAIL DOES HAVE A TWO INCH SPOT WITH AN UPWARD INDENTION WHERE PROBABLY SOMEONE PLACED THE JACK INCORRECTLY. THE RADIATOR SUPPORT AND GAS LID AREAS ARE STRAIGHT AND SOLID. THE CAR DOES NOT APPEAR THAT IT HAS EVER BEEN WRECKED. NO SIGN OF FRONT END OR REAR END DAMAGE. THE RIGHT REAR STEEL BUMPER DOES HAVE A SLIGHT BEND WHERE IT WAS TAPPED AT ONE TIME.LOOKS LIKE A WOODEN MALLET WOULD BEND IT RIGHT BACK.I HOPEDIDNT MISS ANYTHING.
WITH ALL THIS SAID, I THINK THE CAR IS A NICE EXAMPLE AND IN FAIR CONDITION.COULD BE A LOCAL SHOW CAR BUT NOT PERFECT, IT DOES LOOK AWESOME AND DRAWS ATTENTION IN A GOOD WAY: )
