This 240Z is in absolute, top maintained collector condition. From Motorvision Classic there is a report on YouTube about exactly this car – Datsun 240Z: Motorvision remembers a little known sports car icon
At the Tokyo Motor Show in late 1969, Nissan unveiled a new closed sports car as the successor to the Datsun Fairlady, marketed again in Japan as the Fairlady, and in export as the Datsun 240Z.
The appearance of the 240Z was a sensation. The trade press made comparisons with the MGB, the Jaguar E-Type and the Porsche 911 – but the car was in fact incomparable. Technically and visually, its appearance marked a whole new genre of vehicle.
Originally designed exclusively for the U.S. market, this sports coupe became the best-selling sports car in the world in less than ten years.
The two-seater station wagon coupe with a self-supporting sheet steel body was equipped for export with a 2.4-liter in-line six-cylinder engine (Type L24) with an alloy cylinder head and two Hitachi HJB equal-pressure carburetors. There was a choice of four- or five-speed manual transmissions and a three-speed automatic. All wheels were individually suspended on struts and wishbones: a MacPherson axle at the front and a Chapman axle at the rear.
