These were great cars. I had the pleasure of driving a friend's 78 280Z on a road trip and fell in love with the car.

Personally, I think the aluminum slot wheels look right at home on the early Z-cars - Too bad I can't say the same about the dealer-installed body side molding. Still, it's a great-looking ride! trophy image

Yes they are quick! We have one too, and in the process of restoring it. Though, finding parts for it is a DOG! I can't find parts!! If you have any suggestions, please pass them my way.
I do need a floor pan, seats, and the usual interior stuff.
Nice looking car you have there!

1970 Datsun 240Z (The "Z")

Last updated Jan 6, 2010

This is a one owner car until the fall of 2009 where it has come out of 8 years of California storage and 40 years of limited use. It was always stored indoors and shows it.
The paint is the original colour but had a cosmetic paint freshening about 10 years ago and other than routine maintenance items is the way it was built. The car will stay stock inspite of my passion for V8 240z's because these very early series 1 cars are now becoming rare and collectable.


Stock specs are 0-60 in about 8.2 seconds with a top speed of approximately 120 mph

Factory Options

This is a California spec car meaning they all seemed to get the dealer aluminum slots and this one also got air conditioning which still works fine. There were virtually no options on these cars that were not installed at a dealer level.


None and will not get my usual V8 transplant, the car is just too nice and it is surprisingly quick in its stock form.
