Chassis: HLS30137590. 115k miles. Fully documented from new. With second owner for 38 years. Recent major service. Private Party or Dealer: Private Party
This 1973 Datsun 240Z is a strong-running and thoroughly documented example on offer by its third owner. The car was sold new in Rhode Island for $5,000 and purchased by the second owner in 1975 who kept it for 38 years. A few mild performance items were added like a Pace header and Mallory dual point distributor, but the car is fundamentally stock and unmodified. It was acquired by the seller in 2013 who says it is a strong and reliable driver with recent maintenance including a new brake master cylinder and wheel cylinders, full tune-up, new fluids, four-wheel alignment, new springs, and a new alternator. The car comes with an extensive history file back to new, showing repair receipts with $8/hour shop rates in the early days. The car retains its original, uncracked dash and is in excellent driving condition. The car was repainted in 1980 in its original color and the finish is shiny despite its age. There is some cracking in various places but the seller says it is relatively light and only noticeable on close inspection. Chrome and stainless is complete, straight and free of pitting, rubber weatherstripping, bumper trim, and body seals are in good condition and the lockable Shadow rear louvers are a cool period accessory. There is rust evident in the rockers and the rear wheel arches, as seen above. The seller says typical Z rust areas like the battery tray, windshield cowl, spare tire well and floors are solid on this car. New Michelin tires were fitted two years ago and have less than 500 miles on them. The interior remains original apart from a replacement arm rest and period-upgraded stereo head unit. The dash is free of cracks and houses working gauges, lights, and switches. Vinyl, carpets, headliner, and upholstery are all in very good condition. The hatch is clean and stays open on its struts even with the added louvers. Photos in the gallery below show the trunk pan, spare wheel well, and battery tray, all of which remain solid and free from corrosion. Rockers can be left as-is or replaced, but the car is a great driver that can have miles added right away. The original “jute” matting is present under the carpet. The matching numbers L24 is believed to have never been out of the car and is said to be in excellent health as verified by a recent, documented compression test which revealed ~130 PSI across all six cylinders. Notably, the previous owner replaced the factory carbs with preferable early round-top models. Other modifications include a Pace header, ANSA exhaust tip, Mallory dual point distributor and coil and a Nismo front sway bar which retains its original paper parts number sticker. Nearly 100 pages of receipts and invoices document all work completed since new, and sale also includes all original owner’s manuals, warranty booklet, period aftermarket parts catalogs, and maintenance records.
