This car was sold at Niagara Falls Datsun in 1973. Manual transmission. In the 70’s the car was painted red, the g nose and flares were added at that time as well. The g nose is said by Datsun to add 13mph to the top speed of the vehicle, though I’ve never tested that heh. My uncle bought the car in 1982, the previous owner was a friend of my father’s. My uncle had a welder cut out any rust in the floors and put in new metal, he said the car wasn’t too bad when he got it. Still have the original warranty booklet, owners manual and service manual, and it looks like an extended warranty was purchased for it back then. In the early 2000’s my uncle pulled the motor and had a reputable shop rebuild the head and block. He only drove it a few hundred miles a year as it’s one of 5 cars for him. Probably only 5k miles on rebuild. I have his receipts from the engine builder: valve job, mill head, disassemble block, re-hone, new rings, deck block, etc. Also have receipts from Motorsport Auto (now The Z Store) for: crank seals, centerforce clutch w clutch kit, cam oiler tube, headgasket, steering rack boots, rear shoes, wheel cylinder, strut bars front & back, “How to Rebuild Your Nissan OHC Engine” book, urethane steering rack bushings, urethane steering coupler, dual Weber carburetor kit, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, etc etc. From Victoria British: piston ring set, timing chain/set, rear trans oil seal, clutch master & slave, reverse switch, front brake hoses, brake cylinder, etc. Receipts from the local dealer for assorted hardware. Other miscellaneous receipts.

I bought the car 3 years ago, though I’d had it for a bit longer than that. I’m 33 and this is my 4th 240z in the past 17 years. I replaced the emergency brake cable, upper and lower radiator hose, heater hoses, any other coolant and fuel lines that looked ready. I eliminated the vapor expansion tank, (car now has no smell when driving with the windows up) vented the filler neck to the top of the tank, new grommets where needed, thermostat, rear brake hoses, hard lines from hoses to wheel cylinders, wheel bearings & seals in back, stub axle nuts, spindle pin kit, just changed the oil 8/10/18 with the blue oem filter, full synthetic 10w30 and Lucas Oil TB Zinc-Plus zinc additive, poly rear control arm bushing set, Ground Control coilovers 200lb Eibach springs and Tokico Illuminas in back, probably some other stuff I’m forgetting.

The paint is older, single stage, up close you can see spider webbing in spots, but it looks pretty good for what it is. The paint is peeling a bit behind the license plate, but that’s hidden by the plate. Fiberglass hood with holes from hood pins, fit isn’t great. 2.5" exhaust, new Vibrant stainless steel muffler last year. No sway bars, I have a stock front one I can include but it needs to be re-mounted. I also have a new hatch seal I will include. Car has original numbers matching motor, only vin plate that doesn’t match is the dash as my uncle replaced it in the past with an uncracked one.

I do have a pair of round top SU carburetors and manifold that were on the car prior to the Webers (preferable to the Hitachi flat top carbs that came in 1973). The SU’s can be included in sale if desired.

If the S2000 I had wasn’t a sentimental reason for owning it, I’d be all over this car. I’ve been wanting one for years now. I actually considered selling my last S to get one.

I’ll pass the word on this car, GLWS!!

Gorgeous example, and honest write up. I don’t expect this to last long. :tup:


#5

Thanks for the kind words. Since someone local texted me about it, the motor is an e88 head (desirable for its higher compression) and p30 block
