Up for auction is a very clean and very sharp 1971 Datsun 240Z. The car originally came from California and is very solid. I bought this car from a friend less than a year ago. He's an older gentleman that poured his heart and soul into this car, he spend a lot of money on the car. 


I bought the car exactly as you see it but here's what I know about it.

The car has a 280Z motor that was rebuilt and has 4400 mile on it. It has a modified cam and a larger capacity aluminum oil pan. The original 4 speed transmission was replaced with a 5 speed and so were the rear end gears. All are from the 1978, 1979 era. (I have the original motor and rear end gears that go with car but not the original transmission)

Custom bucket seats (I have originals that go with car) The interior is excellent for the year, the passenger sun visor is signed by former race car driver Bob Sharp.

Custom wood steering wheel and shift knob (I have original steering wheel)

16" Panasport Racing Wheels

Custom dash gauges, the new speedometer was installed when the motor was installed and started at zero so this is the mileage since the motor was installed. I'm not positive of the body mileage but I may have the original speedometer showing mileage. I can check if anyone would like to know.

AM/FM CD player with remote control

Has front disc brakes

New shocks, ball joints, tie rods, and alignment.

This is just some of what I know but I can tell you that there are many other new items and I have a box of extra parts, new and old.

The car is very sharp, a real head turner. The engine compartment is beautiful, lots of polished parts and is super clean. The car is very fun to drive, runs great, drives straight, and stops perfect.

It does have a few blemishes that you can see from the pictures and is over 40 years old so if you look hard enough I'm sure you'll find some flaws.

Connecticut does not issue titles on this year vehicle so I will provide the buyer with the previous Connecticut registration and a Q-1 Bill of Sale form. (I never registered car)

Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer but I will be happy to assist with whoever you hire.

Please ask any questions and I will do my best to answer. 


Good Luck!

37K miles in a 1967 Datsun Roadster

Tue, 11 Mar 2014

When we think of comfy, long-distance road cars, there are a few obvious choices. A Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Bentley Continental GT or, assuming fuel efficiency isn't paramount, a Range Rover are all good options for a road trip. But what if that road trip was 37,000 miles? Maybe something more reliable but still comfortable, then, like a Honda Accord. What about a 1967 Datsun Roadster?
As insane as it sounds, Scott Fisher is doing just that, running a Datsun 1600 Roadster across North America and racking up 13,500 miles in his first three months on the road. His total journey will see him pile over 37,000 miles on his red convertible. The car is lightly modified, but most of the work is for the sake of reliability and comfort, with a five-speed manual 'box, an upgraded radiator and electronic ignition.
Fisher's trip hasn't been all smooth, with a few typical bits of trouble. He also ran into some deer in Utah, quite literally, clipping one of the animals, which delivered quite a bit of damage to the passenger's front fender (hence the rear three-quarter view in our lead shot). Still, the car seems to be holding up well, as shown in this latest video from Petrolicious.

Datsun's lackluster initial sales fall below Tata Nano

Wed, 15 Oct 2014

When Tata introduced the Nano back in 2008, everyone was amazed at how cheap it was. They called it a game changer, but no game was changed. In fact, it took Tata five years to sell the 250,000 units it had the capacity to build in a single year. As it turns out, even buyers in what economists call "developing markets" like India aren't necessarily interested in buying an ultra-cheap automobile. And now it appears that Nissan may be falling into the same trap.
A little over a year ago, Nissan revived its old moniker Datsun to serve as a budget brand - similar to what ally Renault did with Dacia. Its lineup (consisting of models like the Go hatchback, Go+ minivan, On-Do sedan and Mi-Do hatch) is largely based on old architecture, packaged with little more than basic equipment and sold at rock-bottom prices. But Bloomberg reports that, even in the brand's core markets like India and Indonesia, the new Datsuns haven't been selling.
According to local industry figures, Datsun has sold fewer than 10,000 units of its $5,100 Go hatchbacks in India since its introduction back in March. Maruti Suzuki, by comparison, sells twice that many of its similarly priced Alto hatchbacks every month. In fact, after peaking in April, Datsun only sold 607 units in India this past July, dipping 77 percent to drop below even the number of Nanos which Tata sold that month.

Renault planning a Tata Nano rival. Again.

Wed, 28 Nov 2012

Four years ago, Renault confirmed that it would partner with India's Bajaj Auto to develop a rival to the Tata Nano. At the time, as everyone waited for the Tata Nano to arrive, you could have used a Richter scale to measure the tremors the executive suites of any automaker with an interest in the low end of emerging markets. Then the Nano, still the cheapest car in the world, didn't sell so well - at the end of last year its sales were just six percent of its most conservative projections - and everyone seemed content to let Tata spend the money to figure out if there really was a market for the cheapest car in the world.
Renault believes there is, kind of. Automotive News Europe reports that it will partner with Nissan to build two low-priced cars for emerging markets, one for €3,000 ($3,888 U.S.) and another for €5,000 ($6,400 U.S.). The price of the least expensive offering is nearly $1,400 more than a Nano, which costs $2,500, and that can't be considered a small sum in comparison. But one of the hindsight knocks on the Nano has been that even in emerging markets buyers don't want a car whose biggest lure is that it is cheap; they'd rather give their aspirations a bit more of a workout.
Renault's offerings are scheduled to hit the non-Western market in late 2014, which is coincidentally the same year that will see the return of the budget-minded and emerging-market-specific Datsun nameplate. They'll be built in Renault facilities in Chennai, India, with no mention made of Bajaj this time around.
