This 1970 Datsun 240Z is powered by its factory 2.4-liter L24 inline-six and a rebuilt 4-speed manual transmission. The car was acquired by the seller nine years ago and is believed to have been in California since new. Modifications include European-market bumpers, removal of door handles and most trim, and the installation of an electronic door opener, electronic ignition, and an aftermarket stereo and wheels. A head rebuild was performed by Z Expert Automotive of Los Angeles, California in April 2018. This Series 1 S30 is offered with partial service records, partial factory tool kit, and a clean California title in the seller’s name. A repaint in factory Yellow (919) was commissioned by the seller in 2011 at Glendale Z of Glendale, California, and the hood, rear hatch, windshield, and window seals were reportedly replaced at the same time. Modifications include European-market bumpers, shaved door handles and brightwork, removal of the radio antenna, and an electronic driver-side door opener. I would rate the Exterior a 7/10 and the interior a 7/10
Silver Konig Rewind wheels are mounted with Falken Ziex ZE329 tires. Corrosion is noted on both doors and the rear hatch seams. The Hood and Passenger sugar scoop are a slightly different shade of yellow due to a fresh spray of those components.
The interior is trimmed in black vinyl and retains its factory faux wood steering wheel. The stock diamond-pleated side panel trim has been replaced with carpet, and an Alpine stereo with Bluetooth connection has been fitted. A dash cap covers the original dash. Headliner is drooping in the front. Photos detail the condition of the interior materials in the gallery.
Approximately 27k miles are shown on the 5-digit odometer, with 20k added by the seller over nine years of ownership. The speedometer reportedly reads 10-15mph fast, and the odometer is believed to have rolled over once. Total mileage is unknown.
The 2.4-liter L24 inline-six retains its factory SU carburetors and is fitted with a 1971 model air filter housing. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual gearbox. The transmission was rebuilt in 2014 with new synchros and seals. The flywheel was resurfaced and a new clutch was installed, along with a throwout bearing, pilot bushing, and a new speedometer gear and cable. The seller has added an electronic ignition, and Z Expert Automotive of Los Angeles, California performed the following work in April 2018:
