Engine rebuilt at 68082. Added dual Weber carburaters. Runs great. Needs paint unless that is not important to you. People do not respect nice looking cars. Door dings etc... Custom painted in the mid 70's. It still turns heads today. Very little rust as you can see by the pictures. I have owned this car since it had 3000 miles on it. I was living in Southern California at that time. Moved here to Nevada 30 years ago. My car has always been garaged. I'm 70 now. Time to let go! It has been a nice ride. Lots of stories. Lots of races .This Z is a fast road course car. even the car next to you wants to race. It will be hard to refrain!! FYI
The Pick of the Day is an impressive example of a 1970s icon that is destined to rise in value

Japanese collector cars are kind of a new thing, with some of them making it into the higher echelons at auctions and private sales, and being included in museum collections.
An undervalued darling of the recent run-up in collector car values, the Datsun 240Z has become one of the few mass-produced Japanese cars to gain any notice.
The Datsun 240Z changed everything in the world of affordable sports cars. It offered serious performance, tremendous build quality and striking styling.
Eighteen of the greatest Japanese sports cars will be on display at the Simeone Automotive Museum in Philadelphia as part of a special exhibit, the Best of Japan.
“The difference between the Datsun 240Z and your everyday three-and-a-half thousand dollar sports car is that about twice as much thinking went into the Datsun…
Datsun scored a major breakthrough in the American perception of Japanese cars with the launch for 1970 of its 240Z.
