Awesome Original: ’70 Datsun 240Z
You will only see nice original, 240Zs on Mint and that means there won’t be many of them. Somehow, 240Zs found it difficult to stay original and rust-free. This is the best way to buy a Z car. The Z has accumulated only 44,000 miles. It had one repaint some time ago but everything else is original to the car. These are really nice looking cars with somewhat derivative styling and we love it. This one has the original wheel covers and that is remarkable. It seems like every one fell victim to the after market wheel manufacturers. These early Zs have great performance chops with a decent 6 cylinder engine only a little rough around the edges. But they were faster than many cars, a lot more expensive back in the day. Back to this one – the engine is rebuilt, the transmission shifts nicely, the brakes stop smooth and straight. All according to the listing so trust but verify. The seller tells us he is a Z car collector. Price guides say #3 condition cars should be valued at around $15,000, #2 at $24,000. Original cars should command a little more respect. Click here for the listing.
