This 1970 Datsun 240Z was originally a Canadian offered car and spent all of its life in Canada until the selling dealer purchased the car and then imported it into California.  It is currently registered and titled in CA and is driven locally to shows and special events.  History ownership since new.  The car was originally orange with black interior and the prior owner did a color change to this Jaguar gray color scheme.  The paint job is driver quality and there is some orange peel and imperfections.  Upon importation the car was brought to well known Z restoration shop, Pierre Z’s, to have the car sorted and minor repairs completed.  The car has its original 2.4-liter L24 inline six and four speed manual transmission and runs and drives perfectly.  This car would be a great candidate for a complete restoration at a later date to bring it back to it original condition but in the meantime you have a fun and reliable restomod.  These early vin series one cars are experiencing the most appreciation with good examples hitting six figures.

Was at Willow Springs this weekend and there was a 260Z that was made out to look like a 240 and he was tracking it. Similar look to this one but the owner said he wanted a “show” and track car put together. Not sure if I agreed but definitely fun to watch on track. GLWS

Here are a few answers to questions asked; this was originally a Canadian delivery car, the restoration was done about 7 years ago, paint work is average, engine runs strong and recent maintenance done, we don’t have the orignal OEM parts, it is a very nice “driver” condition car.

GTS25 the paint job was average and looks good from a distance but up close has some orange peel and door gaps need to be better. As described above, this is a great driver that would be a good restoration candidate at a later time.

I have always wanted a 240Z. This one looks nice but how hard would it be to bring back to original?

These early Z’s have really been going up in value. Looks like a nice driver.
