The Datsun 'Z' series was produced by Nissan Motors from 1969
through 1978. The 'Z' was created to go head-to-head with
established European sports cars and forever changed world's
perception of the Japanese automobile. The 'Z' was far from an
'econbox'. Our 1974 260Z spent its early days in California and has
since received a full restoration with careful mechanical upgrades.
(Only year of 260Z model) Included in the sale is a large binder
that documents the restoration effort and maintenance procedures
over the years. We have only room to list a fraction of that
undertaking here. The exterior was professionally refinished in
2-stage Candy Apple Green in 2003 and is in excellent condition.
Accents include all new chrome, 'Z' badging, body side moldings,
bumper overrides and 14" Performance Specialties alloy wheels that
mount Hankook Optimo H724 radials. The factory interior was also
refreshed with new vinyl, carpeting, rubber seals and all essential
details. Dash/dashpad, door cards, headliner - everything is top
shelf. Convenience features include factory air-conditioning,
AM/FM/cassette stereo, tinted power windows and a full factory
gauge package. The detailed engine compartment houses a 2.6L SOHC
six-cylinder that was totally rebuilt in 1984 and again refreshed
in 2016. It incorporates a cast iron block, aluminum head, new
high-compression L18 pistons, dual Hitachi 44mm SU-style carbs
(rebuilt), electric fuel pump and performance exhaust system. Power
is delivered through a 4-speed all-syncro manual gearbox w/new
clutch to a stock rear differential. The factory driveshaft has
been balanced with new u-joints and disc brakes have been fully
serviced including a new dual master. The suspension is a
MacPherson/Chapman strut design with front/rear sway bars that has
been upgraded with new KYB coil springs and gas shocks from
Suspension Technologies. This Datsun 260Z coupe has been
meticulously restored and will be a handsome addition to your 'Z'
garage. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
