1971 Datsun 240z Series 1

107K original miles same owner for the last 21 years.

California blue plate car, with new tires all around and nice mag wheels.

The car was repainted 21 years ago, but held up great. Very straight body, and completely rust free undercarriage.

The hatch had some surface rust so the owner put some sort of gel to stop from water getting in. Other then that Its solid.

Automatic transmission but was rebuilt recently shifts good.

The car runs, and drives straight, brakes straight. Carbs are not perfect. The owner said he drove the car 5k miles in the last 20 years, and the carbs can use a little cleaning. When the car is warmed up all the way you have to keep the choke slightly on for it to run like it should.

The interior is in great shape. The seats were redone in good leather. The dash has a couple of cracks as usual.

Wooden steering wheel and horn button in good shape.

Enjoyable car to drive, if a manual transmission is fitted will be a great, great driver.

AC pump, condenser installed, but needs freon recharged.

Receipts, manuals, original keys come with the car.

The car was bought from a mechanic friend in the Valley.

I believe that it came from somewhere in the middle of america, but live most of its life in California.
The car has new paint, redone front seats in leather, steering wheel recovered in leather, dash recovered in leather, back bottom cushions recovered in leather, back speaker panel redone in leather.
The car has new front and back window seals.
Its got 112k on the ODO.
Comes with spare, jack, tools, manual and soon enough a title…
The targa top was redone recently.
The motor is dry, and runs good but the cold start could be adjusted. When you first start the car it needs to warm up before running correctly.
Oil pressure is very good, tranny is solid and all syncors good.
Drives straight, brakes straight.
