1972 Datsun 240Z Z-Series L28
Used 1972 Datsun 240Z 37,432 miles
Chula Vista, CA
For sale is an outstanding, correctly modified 240Z Vintage Racer. In 2008 the drivetrain was completely gone through, giving the engine, transmission and rear end a complete rebuild. Upgrades were added at the time such as new Goodyear Tires, Electric Fuel Pump/Regulator, Tokico adjustable Coilovers, Strut Tower Braces, urethane steering coupler and bushings among other things however the majority of aesthetics and parts themselves remain unchanged since the 80's. This 240Z is far from stock yet many original attributes have survived showing how well it's been cared for over the years and that the customization began with a very nice rust free/ low mile car. The dash is very rare in that it is unrestored and crack/blemish free. All glass is factory and in like new, scratch free condition. Ignition tumbler is original along with door and hatch locks which all fit the 2 number matched keys that still remain with the car. Console and interior panels are all factory and look as new. Seats were reupholstered with a velour center and carpet was custom made fitted atop Dynomat Sound/Heat Barrier. Original seatbelts still have the date coded safety tags sewn in. The transmission tunnel carpet is hiding very nice fade-free red cross hatched vinyl which has been kept in place just to add to the already cool and quiet cockpit but could be removed if you favor form over function. 1 might expect it be a loud, hot, uncomfortable, a typical sports car but when you're behind the wheel and fire the motor, it is impressively quiet in the cab the clutch is light and it feels refined, solid, and has effortless power with precise handling. The mild cam grind produces a solid idle and the Z can be very tame to drive if your foot can resist the throttle. Gas mileage is incredible for a race motor, aiding to that is the fifth gear which also makes highway cruising a treat. This is really the ultimate 1st generation Z Car. Datsun was clever in using the same legendary inline six cyl engine/transmission drivetrain platform from 1970-1983. The best of these parts were sourced and properly mated together to produce a powerful L-series power plant that produces roughly 300lb feet of torque that really puts a smile on anyone's face. 2.8 Liter N42 Block with Flattop Pistons bored .40 overEarly E88 240Z Head - five Angle Stainless Steel Valve Job Ported and PolishedIsky Mild Race/Street Camshaft w/ Nismo Adjustable Sprocket and ChainGenuine Triple Mikuni / Solex PHH 44 Carbs Properly Jetted for ApplicationPX HiFlow Air Filters over Velocity StacksCompetition Polished Intake Custom Ceramic Coated Headers with Dual Exhaust / Stacked Stainless TipsMallory High Energy Ignition with Petronix IgniterMagnecor KV85 Competition Wires / NGK Spark Plugs'81 Close Ratio 5 Gear TransmissionCenterForce II Clutch w/ Lightened FlywheelCustomized Limited Slip R200 Rear End w/ 3.90 Speed RatioNew U-Joints / Balanced DriveshaftTociko Fully Adjustable Coil-oversCusco - Progressive Front and Rear Strut Tower BracesCustom Made Roll Bar / Mounted Fire ExtinguisherFront and Rear Sway BarsVintage MiniLite Alloy rims w/ Shelby CentercapsGoodyear Raised Letter TiresPower Disc Brakes w/ Stainless Steel LinesSummit Electric Fuel Pump Pressure RegulatorBraided Stainless Steel Fuel Lines280ZX 60AMP Alternator UpgradeNew OEM Cloth Braided Coolant Hoses and Correct Cad Band ClampsVintage Sears Air Horns w/ Toggle switch to and from Factory HornsPioneer six Speaker Stereo system w/ Cassette Player (State of the Art in '81)Genuine 3 Piece G-Nose w/ Fiberglass Bumpers and Custom Headlamp CoversProfessionally Sculpted Metal Fender Flares / Frenched Rear SpoilerRacing Stripes - Painted not DecalsBullet Style Racing Door MirrorsAnti-theft Kill Switch
