This Z's classic factory code 918 "New Sight Orange" is gorgeous and was just fully buffed and hand waxed.The body and paint on this car looks amazing and shows very few blemishes, a true testament to how well this car was taken care of! The car has had one full repaint back in the mid 90's and still looks great. There is one light spot on the roof that can only been seen in certain light. The car is arrow straight and shows no evidence of being in an accident. All the lights and indicators work as they should as well.
The car is riding on tasteful, polished 14" alloy wheels that really add to the sportiness of this coupe. These were dealer added when the car was new. They are all in great shape and wrapped in new Cooper performance tires. The car will also come with brand new calipers for a rear disc conversion if desired.
The beautiful black interior is very clean and looks amazing! The inside of this car has received a complete overhaul with the exception of the headliner and the diamond paneling. The seats have been recovered and the hinge plastics sourced. The dash has been full-face capped and the seams blended to retain the oem look. Brand new door panels, carpet, rear hatch panels, console and refinished center stack all compliment the beautiful steering wheel. Lights, gauges, radio, seats, windows, locks, a/c are all operational with the exception of the map light and power antenna. The Blaupunkt radio was just pulled out of the box as a NOS item and is period correct. Its wired into a nice set of Rockford Fosgate speakers located in the kick panels. The car will also include all the factory radio paperwork.
Mechanically, this Datsun is in great condition and runs and drives well. It is very healthy and quick. This car no longer retains its factory L24 and has been replaced with an L28 (Datsun 280z) engine. The engine was rebuilt (per the last owner) and a dual carburetor setup added to acclimate the newer motor into the older chassis. Both Weber carbs have just been rebuilt and are mated to a cannon side-draft manifold. The original 4 speed was rebuilt a few years ago and still shifts great into every gear. At that time the clutch was replaced as well (per the last owner). The radiator was pulled, tested and re-coated before being put back into the car and it just received a new starter. This Z also has a newer exhaust that compliments the L28 up front.
The engine bay on this 240z has been preserved and presents very well. The valve cover was freshly polished and received a new gasket. New plug wires were just installed as well. The engine bay lamp is fully functional and has a new reproduction lens on it. Radiator was recently pulled, tested and treated before being put back into the car.
This car is ready to go! The exterior of this Coupe is stunning in New Sight Orange over black interior and is definitely a desired color combination for the 240z. This car is an excellent value and these are going up in value rapidly! Dont miss out on an opportunity to own an appreciating classic you can enjoy and not feel bad about keeping a garage queen.
