1973 Datsun 240Z
The 1970 240Z was introduced to the American market by Yutaka Katayama, president of Nissan Motors USA operations, widely known as "Mister K". The 1970 through the mid-1971 model year 240Z was referred to as the Series I. These early cars had many subtle but notable features differing from later cars. The most easily visible difference is that these early cars had a chrome 240Z badge on the sail pillar, and two horizontal vents in the rear hatch below the glass molding providing flow through ventilation. In mid-1971, for the Series II 240Z-cars, the sail pillar emblems were restyled with just the letter Z placed in a circular vented emblem, and the vents were eliminated from the hatch panel of the car. Design changes for the US model 240Z occurred throughout production, including interior modifications for the 1972 model year, and a change in the location of the bumper over-riders, as well as the addition of some emission control devices and the adoption of a new style of emissions reducing carburetors for the 1973 model year.
This Datsun 240 Z is a well maintained driver quality example. The car has a great stance and appearance with the period correct aluminum sport wheels. It has a correct L-24 replacement motor fitted with twin SU carbs. An aftermarket AC unit has also been fitted for our hot climate friends.The body is very solid with no blisters or checking. We have used a magnet and are happy to report that it sticks on all of the panel surfaces. If you are looking for a 240 Z that you can use and enjoy while prices continue appreciate this is the car for you.
