Datsun 240Z Type 1 for sale. Single owner
One of the last Type 1’s; she was built in January of 1971. VIN HLS30-19862. I bought her May 25, 1971 from the Datsun dealer in Culpepper Virginia for $3716 + tax. We drove her across the country to California in September of 1979 and she was active until June of 1987; the last time she was run. The original wheels and “D” emblem hubcaps go with her, but she has mag wheels now. Over time I put in a capacitive discharge ignition and I put an auxiliary spring in the oil pressure regulator to increase the pressure. The week I bought her I had an air conditioner installed (Datsun did not offer that option.) I have the glove-box manual, and a body and an engine service manual. I also have Road and Track magazines and a copy of Consumer’s report from the early 70’s that can go with her.
She has gone 103,487 miles. When she was parked and put up on blocks, she was burning oil, the exhaust system had rusted out, and she needed a new left rear U-joint. The rear deck lid hinges are rusted out and there is some rust on the body. The red paint is original, but she needs new paint. The ignition switch gives power to the car, but two buttons on the console activate the starter. She had a deer run into her right front fender in 1972 and that was replaced. Otherwise, no accidents. I will sell her for $3716 OBO and the buyer will have to transport her new home at his/her expense.
