Car Details

Sales of the Nissan Z Car started in October 1969 (for the 1970 model year), with separate versions for the Japanese and US markets. In the US it was marketed as the Datsun 240Z, and featured a 2.4L L24 inline-6 with twin Hitachi SU-type carburetors that produced 151 hp (113 kW) and drove power to the rear via a four-speed manual. A less common three-speed automatic transmission was optional from 1971 on. JDM versions were known as the Nissan Fairlady Z. Combining good looks, and powerful performance, it sold over 45,000 units through the '71 model year and over 50,000 and 40,000 in 1972 and 1973, respectively. For the 1974 model year, the 240Z was replaced by the Datsun 260Z. We are the proud third owner of this 240Z with the car coming to The Wilson Collection in 2018. It went through a full restoration and has been restored to original condition.
