Probably Not the Best Z, But Not a Bad Deal

1970 Datsun 240z for sale Sorry it’s been a little slow today. Uberbird work and real life and all that getting in the way. Given today’s Hooniverse Asks, this screaming deal of an eBay/Local Classifieds ad seemed apropos. We’ve got a 1970 240z in rough, but generally serviceable shape. If you go for the full price, it also includes a spare turbo motor and stroker crank.

This particular hoon has never owned, nor spent more than brief stints in any Z-car, but that hasn’t stopped me from wanting a semi-gutted 240 with an assortment of go-fast upgrades. This one’s definitely a project, but not a bad deal with a $2000 asking price.

    This Z-Day had me looking for Z cars on Craigslist all day. Found quite a few non-turbo, but all in slightly better condition than this gem.

      But are they cheaper?

        None of them were cheaper. This one gets a point in that column.

    Gotta look closely underneath at these old Z's. Rust was a big problem with the first-generation cars, particularly in the first few years.

      Good point. I had a buddy who had an absolutely lovely 240Z , years ago, and the damn thing almost folded in two because of those rust issues. You could actually feel it flex while riding in the passenger seat.

    It doesn't take much to make these really wild.

    I readily admit that I'm no expert on early Z-cars (and I've never had the pleasure of driving one), but it befuddles me that a car in this condition, that was produced in such numbers and can still be spotted almost daily here in SoCal would command $2k. I'm not suggesting that this isn't the fair market price, I'm just wondering if it's worth it, when just another couple of k's would get you the complete, running deal, needing only, say, paint.
    After all, a Hemi-Cuda, DS, Sonnet, Opel GT, or Benz 6.3 this is not. Maybe I'm just a cheepskate.

      Correction…I've never driven a 240, 260 or 280Z. I driven many, many 350Z's. Good car but I doubt they'll be as collectible (and they too are everywhere).
