   The 240z was Datsun’s first foray into the mainstream sportscar market. Datsun had produced sports cars in the past, but they now wanted to compete with the Europeans, especially in the booming American market. The 240z was the start to one of the most successful lines of sports cars of all time, the Z car. Released in 1970 it’s name stood for it’s displacement, 2. 4 liters. This small sports car produced 151 horsepower out of its inline six. the series 1 240z ended in mid-1971, with the series II cars receiving slight cosmetic changes. Throughout the 240z’s history it has been used for many purposes, ranging from road racing to rally, even winning the East African Rally in 1973. The 240z helped put Japan on the map for sports cars, proving that they were able to make more than small economy cars.

    This car runs and drives quite nicely, and could be kept as-is, but it does have a 20 year old paint job and is not perfect. Outside the Original yellow paint has been covered with a metallic Maroon. The paint presents OK from a distance but is lifting in some locations. The real beauty of this car is how solid the chassis and body are. These cars are known for rusting away to nothing, and this car is extremely dry, thanks to it being in a dry climate its entire lifetime. I The body is very straight, and all the panels fit great, just like they did from the factory. The floors are original and have no rust, and there are no signs of any rust popping up anywhere on the body. This is remarkably rare for a Datsun 240z.

   Under the hood of this 240z lays the numbers matching L24 Inline six. The engine fires up very easily with the turn of the key and idles smoothly. The engine pulls nicely and feels very strong and healthy, proven by the very consistent Compression numbers we tested. The 4 speed manual transmission shifts very nicely and the syncros seem to be in excellent condition. With prices of 240zs continuing to increase every day this is a great opportunity to get into an affordable example that is in great shape mechanically.
