1973 Datsun Z-Series 240Z Additional Info:

Relisting as I was incorrect on the year. It is a late 1972 (Oct) production making it an actual 1973.
Very nice original 1973 Datsun 240z
Ready for restoration or daily driver with a little tuning.
I acquired this z about 5 years ago from the central California valley. It had been sitting for 6+ years.
After sitting in my garage for the past 5 years I finally started tinkering with it.
New gas, changed the oil, adjusted valves, new starter, ignition switch, clutch master and slave cylinder.
Started right up drove it around the block, transmission seemed fine as are brakes but it will need some carburetor work and fine tuning to be road worthy, and new tires etc. They hold air but are 10+ years old.
Compression check ranged from 150 to 160 on all cylinders
It is a numbers matching engine.
It has had a white repaint at some time and it is an original white car.
Upholstery is clean but not original.
All body panels and glass appear to be original and firewall vin matches strut tower and dash vin and as far as I can tell it has never been in an accident
and no bondo present.
Things that need attention are;
Carbs, they appear to be the original smog equipped flat top hitachis which I heard are pretty hard to tune properly so I haven't attempted yet.
Headlights don't work (not sure why, fuses are ok)
Rust in rear quarter panels in front of rear wheels and rear hatch panel ( i will include new patch panels as in pictures)
Also a little surface rust and a little rust in floorboards and A pillars as shown in pics.
Struts seemed a little clunky??
Missing one hubcap and no spare.
Needs wiper arms but wiper motor works fine as does heater and gauges. Clock does not work and some dash and marker lights are out.
Speedometer shows 67,168.
Just got new plates and tags so good to go for a year, California title in my name ready to transfer and I will get proper year fixed at DMV.
