Hi All.


-'72 Datsun 240z

-date of manufacture: 9/71

-second owner, bought in Atlanta 2001.  The original owner passed and I purchased it from his daughter.  The original owner, George, was an airline mechanic with Delta AIrlines.  The front bumper has a small Delta sticker which must stay on the car!  

-roughly 2000 miles put on the Z since I purchased it.

-have original sales receipt- in photos


-Mostly original minus:

  • weber dgv carbs put on by original owner.  I do not have original SU carbs
  • front air dam and headlight scoops-seen in pictures.  I do not have original headlights/ scoops
  • car was  repainted  in early 80's.  It is the original color. 


-The Z runs and drives well.  It is not registered or inspected at this time.  I put roughly 100 miles on it this Spring.

-The Z burns a small amount of oil.  The engine has not been touched.  Compression is good and consistent across all cylinders.  I am not talking clouds of black smoke, just puffs under heavy throttle.

-The oil and temperature gauges are finicky. When operable, oil psi is about 45 psi at 2000rpm.

-No fluid leaks, no puddles/ stains on garage floor.

-The Z is equipped with air conditioning as a dealer installed option.  It is not operable, but compressor does engage.

-The original radio works.  I have a replacement power extendable antennae installed.  The switch on the radio to raise/lower the antennae is not sending power to antennae as of this Spring, antennae is operable when powered directly.

-I've replaced the brake master cylinder, both rear wheel cylinders, alternator and voltage regulator over the years.  That's it.

-I've documented the rot as best I can in pictures.  I've bondo'ed in front of both rear tires behind rocker panels.  Both front fenders in front of rocker panels have bondo.  The hatch area is in good shape.  A few bubbled have popped up around fuel fill area.

-The windshield rubber needs replacement.

-The floors are solid.

-The undercarriage is solid.

-The drivetrain is solid, shifts well, no clunks, grinding of any kind.


My nights and weekends are consumed coaching youth football, baseball, soccer, and lacrosse.  While I wouldn't have it any other way, I just don't have time to take care of this Z I truly love.  I've owned Z's since high school.  This is far and away my favorite and really really hoped to restore it.  She needs a good home. A little TLC and she's good to go.  Also a great candidate for restoration.  The lime yellow is uncommon and really sharp.  Having the original sales receipt and some hand written maintenance logs from George is pretty special.  

Thanks for looking and don't hesitate with questions.

Fiat contemplating sub-brand to compete with Dacia, Datsun

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 08:46:00 EST

You can add Fiat to the admittedly short list of automakers considering a low-cost brand to rival Dacia. The inexpensive Eastern European brand from Renault-Nissan has performed on the balance sheet like a premium model line, and the money the alliance is taking off the table is encouraging other players to deal themselves in. Pretty soon Nissan's Datsun sub-brand will join the Dacia party, going on sale in Russia, Indonesia and India and will claim even more rubles, rupiahs and rupees for the parent company. Volkswagen recently said it will make a decision this year on a budget line for the Chinese market. With the euthanasia of Lancia and plans to move the Fiat brand upmarket, company CEO Sergio Marchionne wonders aloud to Automotive News Europe whether there could be room for a new budget brand underneath Fiat.
We're told that the initiative has been in the idea box for five years and even moved to the stage of name considerations, like Innocenti, but worries about profit kept it from realization. If such a range were to be developed, Marchionne says it couldn't be built in Italy and stay within budget, and the company is "analyzing its manufacturing capacity outside of Europe to see if a low-cost brand is viable."

Datsun expands low-cost revival with new Mi-Do in Moscow [w/video]

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 08:01:00 EST

Those who were disappointed when Datsun changed its name to Nissan over three decades ago may have been pleased to see the marque revived last year, even as a budget brand. Nissan's counterpart to its ally Renault's Dacia budget brand, Datsun has been steadily expanding its lineup of low-cost transportation for developing markets with the debut of the Go hatchback in India, the Go+ minivan in Indonesia and the On-Do sedan in Russia. And now it has returned to Moscow to reveal its fourth model, the Mi-Do.
Based closely on the On-Do sedan (which itself is based on the Lada Granta) the Mi-Do takes on a five-door hatchback bodystyle but with no more frills. It uses the same front-drive chassis with the same wheelbase as the sedan, but its chopped tail makes it a good foot and a half shorter overall. Into that compact shape, Datsun has fitted dual airbags, ABS and... well, that's about it. It's got a 1.6-liter, eight-valve inline-four kicking out a grand total of 87 horsepower to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. Bare bones, this is.
While delivery of the first On-Do sedans commences next month (with the first example going to an IT specialist in Omsk), the Mi-Do is set to begin delivery early next year. Scope out the video and press release below from the Mi-Do's reveal at the Moscow Motor Show.

Datsun to unveil second model later this month

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 14:37:00 EST

Datsun, Nissan's new sub-brand for emerging markets, has announced plans to unveil its second model. Its first, the Go, was unveiled almost two months ago, and promised affordable, connected motoring for five in a handsome hatchback body. Datsun is following that up with a pair of new models for Indonesia.
The first of these two new vehicles will be shown on September 17 in Jakarta, eschewing the typical auto show debut. It's targeted at so-called "risers," the nickname for a group of highly aspirational customers in the Indonesian market. Datsun developed it locally with help from Nissan, and it'll cost under 100 million Indonesian rupiah (about $8,900 at today's rates).
We'll have the full boatload of information on the newest member of the Datsun family when it debuts on September 17. Scroll on to read the full press release from Datsun.
