Original Content From Ad: Up for sale is my 1972 Datsun 240Z. This car is truly something special and the ONLY reason its up for sale now is because my parents are in some serious financial trouble due to hurricane sandy. They haven’t been able to bounce back as soon as they have hoped especially with new issues arising with the house (joys of being a homeowner right?). So with that, on to the Z. It currently has an L28ET from an 1982 280ZX which runs great, compression test was done back in December I believe and it checked at 155psi in each cylinder (I was very surprised that it was so equal across all 6). Most of the swap work was done by the previous owner and anything that was not properly sorted out was corrected by Tidewater Z here in VA. At Tidewater Z the car was looked over by their mechanic/specialist with over 20 years of experience with Z’s and he was blown away by the condition of the car. No rust issues, engine runs very smoothly, transmission and turbo run great with no issues. The car has been garaged by the previous owner and now myself as well. A lot of time (and $) has went into this car because I was preparing it to be with me for MANY years to come but unfortunately that won’t happen. The car can be driven daily if you please but I drive it during good weather only. This car literally turns heads. It looks amazing. It recently won top pick at Springfest here in VA which was awesome since they had over 600 cars registered. It has new struts/springs/shocks (eibach), new alternator upgrade kit with new belt to deal with the proper voltage of the L28et, new exhaust with glass pack, new down pipe, all proper valve adjustments have been made, wheels have been properly CnC’d and balanced to fit (15×10.5). All lights work, interior was redone with new carpet in the rear, refurbished 15 gallon fuel tank installed with proper hoses so you have plenty of fuel for long road trips, new weatherstripping, new shifter bushings, new valve cover gasket, new braided steel lines for brakes (front brakes are from a Z31). Not sure what else to include but please feel free to ask. Again it has no issues with rust, not even in the notorious spots like near the battery or frame rails. This car was not intended to be sold at all but its keep it and watch my family struggle or sell it and actually help them. My mechanic has tried to talk me out of this as much as possible saying “you will probably never find a Z in as good condition as this ever again, especially with the L28ET” but family comes first. So here’s your chance to own something special, I would love to sell this car to someone who can appreciate this car as much as I do.
The only “problems/work” the car needs:
-Needs a fuel gauge
-2 inch crack in front bumper (damaged in shipment, nothing awful but I was going to replace the bumper with the one that has vents if I was keeping her)
-no radio (if thats important to you, I had no plans of ever adding one)
Serious Inquiries ONLY, Please contact me for more pics or videos if you’d like. And Yes I actually do own this Z. Thanks for looking.
