More Details & Pictures
1970 Datsun 240z Series 1 White 904 on rare Blue interior. All of the original parts specific to the Series 1 are still there. It is a Numbers matching car and still has the original E31 head.
The paint has scratches and dings on most panels. Most of the dings are on the hood and roof. It’s a 10 footer and looks good over all. See pic
The floors and frame rail are very solid. There is no undercoating typically found on 240z’s so it makes it very easy to tell the condition. Both quarter panels wheel lip edges and dog legs have been replaced in the past and you can see about 3″ rust on the lowest portion of the inner dog leg on the pass side.
There is a small rust spot bubbling underneath the engine plate plaque about 1-2″. See pic
The battery tray is solid has only very clean surface rust where the paint has come off. See pic
The interior is pretty well preserved overall and the seats have been recovered at some point in time. The dash has 3 “clean” cracks above the three center gauges.and some webbing on the glove compartment side. The original Radio is there with working Antenna. The radio works from time to time. The RPM gauge is stuck at 3K mark and is not functional
I have installed a direct plugin upgrade modern fuse box from motorsport auto but have the original clean condition long pigtail fuse box included with the car. Its a simple plug in option.
All 5 original Steel wheels including the original 4 “D” hub caps are included. Hub caps are very straight with no damage. See pic
Mechanically it runs very well and starts very easily with or without the aid of the choke.. The suspension is surprisingly very smooth and there are no rattles or clunking. I have added a refurbished new factory Hitachi Alternator, new take off Kyosan Denki Fuel Pump, NOS Hitachi voltage regulator and a brand new battery. The shifter has some play from side to side but shifts very well. The motor is very strong and still powerful.
The headlights, signal, hazards, taillights all illuminate very strong and bright with the help of the updated fuse box.
Its a very good first year 240z and a joy to drive as is or to do a ground up restoration on. I am only selling it because I currently own 4 Z’s, and with my other toys, the garage is just too cramped to enjoy.

Registration is current and title is in my name ready for a buyer. Its a great Z and even better in person.
