About “Buzzz”

When I got my drivers license in 1973 the musle cars were pretty much done. The cars from Japan were catching on with the younger kids, cause the first oil crises made gas prices jump to something like .47-.50 cents per gallon!!! My father got me a 1973 Plymouth Duster, but I really wanted a Datsun 240z. It took me almost 39 years but I found one that was built the same month and year I turned 16. This Datsun is like a time machine for me, I feel like a kid when I drive it and I try to drive it often.

 

Specs for “OLD CHRYSLERS NEVER DIE THEY JUST GO FASTER”

Also the name of a city in Spain, Cordoba was the name given to an intermediate personal luxury coupe sold by the Chrysler Corporation in North America from 1975 until 1983. The Cordoba was Chrysler's first model produced specifically for the personal luxury market and the original Chrysler branded vehicle that was less than full-size. While other up-market brands were expanding into smaller vehicles in the early 1960's with such models as the Buick Skylark and the Mercury Comet, the Chrysler Company adamantly and very publicly declared that Chrysler vehicles would never get any smaller. (This statement was dismissed within 15 years.).

The Cordoba's emblem was a stylized version of the Argentine Cordoba coin, rather than after the name of the city in Spain. The implication of the emblem was Hispanic, and this theme continued to be carried out with baroque trim on the interior, and using Ricardo Montalban, Mexican movie star, as the vehicles advertising spokesman.

Becoming one of Chrysler's very few genuine hits of the 1970s, the Cordoba was popular while the Chrysler Company itself teetered on bankruptcy. Production itself was over 150,000 annually though and the demand actually exceeded supply for its first couple of years. Nearly half of the Chrysler division production during this period was made up of Cordoba's.

Originally introduced in 1975 as an upscale personal luxury vehicle, the Chrysler Cordoba did well in the personal luxury market at the time that was large and growing. The Cordoba was a twin of the formalized Dodge Charger SE. Considered to be one of Chrysler's better efforts, the Cordoba was sleek, well proportioned and very graceful. Priced to compete with the Chevy Monte Carlo, the Ford Elite and the amazingly successful Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme..

Factory Options for “Buzzz”

All 240z's had a 4-wheel independent suspension consisted of MacPherson struts in front and Chapman struts in back. Front disc brakes and rear drums were standard.

The 240Z used twin, variable venturi Hitachi one-barrel side-draft SU-like carburetors.

Due to its relatively low price compared to other foreign sports cars of the time (Jaguar, BMW, Porsche, etc.), it became popular in the United States and was a major success for the Nissan Motor Corporation, which at the time sold cars in North America under the name Datsun. The 240Z also broadened the image of Japanese car-makers beyond their econobox success.
