Here are notes from long time, previous owner: " This car has not been a an occassional, daily driver for about 15 years. I have driven it around the block one or twice a year and recently drained the tank and put new gas in it. Less than 1000 miles since comprehensive engine rebuild. Rebuild included hot tanking, cylinder honing, new pistons/rings, bearings, crank polishing/balancing, oil pump, complete timing chain kit, rebuilt 1971 240Z head ( 71 head has higher compression than 73 head, also has steel seats instead of brass). Rebuilt alternator, water pump, starter. driver "I'm not the original owner but as far as I can tell, the car has never been in even a minor accident. I did have it painted years ago. Car was sanded to bare metal or original primer. Some minor dent repair done in various spots. Car was originally the competition orange color. Yellow/green paint now is matched to a factory original color. Floor pans have been restored with a procedure of grinding rust out and brush applying a anti-rust primer. Suspension strut cartridges were replaced with KYB shocks. This was many years ago but probably on have 5000 miles on them.. Exhaust was replaced at time of engine rebuild with a header, Wolverine Glaspak, and resonator/muffler. The clutch was also replaced at the time of the engine rebuild. I replaced the pressure plate, clutch disk and throwout bearing. Front ball joints have been replaced. Steering is pretty tight unlike most 240z. Front end is very stable on the freeway. Much brake work was done but again it was many years ago. Front disks were turned as well as rear drums. I just replaced the rear wheel cylinders as they didn't survive the extended garaging. The brake lines also got a good flush. As you can see by the pictures the original side-draft dashpot carbs are not on the car. I retrofited the carbs with the 240Z weber upgrade kit. I still have the old dashpots and linkages if you want to restore back to original. I also have the original 1973 head along with a bunch of other misc. parts. Even a spare back glass." Note: These notes from long-term owner was written years ago before I purchased the car. Current price reflects recent work and significant increase in market value in similar condition 240Zs.
