SOLD: 71 240Z LS1 T56

Recommended Posts

Time to give up my Datsun to someone else. I just don't drive it much anymore and I'm now just too old for such an impractical vehicle :) . Owned it for almost 20 years and put 30K miles on it in various iterations. Lots of info on this particular car can be found in these forums. I have a little web page write up slash ad here: http://240z.jeromio.com. 

I have a punch list of what I would consider minor things to take care of - all relating to the interior. I've been chipping away at these over the past few weeks so there may be no todos left in the next month or 2. It does have fully functioning A/C. Seats are a bit worn. Wheels are kind of dated. If I were to keep it I would buy some 17x9 Rotas and install ZG flares. But probably better to leave these choices to the next owner of the car.

As it is, it is fully functional and enjoyable. I would drive it across the country. I would arrive pretty worn out tho bc it rides like a skateboard and it's loud as f**k :) .  Gets great fuel mileage tho.

What is it: 1971 Datsun 240Z (well, that's what it started out as)

What's in it: 1999 LS1, stock tune, stock manifolds, no cats, 2.25 into 3" w/ single stainless 3" muffler. T56 w/ McLeod clutch. 3.54 R200 diff. 83 ZXt CV Half Shafts (rebuilt). 

Chassis: Fully de-rustified, full subframe connectors. GC Coil-overs, 250lb springs, all poly bushings. Custom double poly front diff mount. Relocated front lower pivots. Sectioned struts, Tokico blue carts.

Brakes: Front 84 Z31 vented discs. Rear 83 ZXt solid discs. 83ZXt master + booster.

Cosmetic: Fancy Ford SVT Grabber Blue paint. Front poly airdam. Aluminum re-enforced fiberglass front bumper (which makes it functional).

Location: Philadelphia, PA

Price: $16,500 (or trades considered for more practical, manual transmission car such as Focus ST, Volvo C30, MazdaSpeed 3, etc.)

(Also - I'll transfer ownership of http://facebook.com/datsunz to whomever buys the car. Has over 31K followers)

Hi all - 

 

I’ve been meaning to comment on this for an age, but the car is now with me in the UK. 

 

I am planning on doing a build thread but progress so far has been slow & dull as I rewire the car. I’ve not even driven the thing yet!  Although that may be a way off as I found a load of metal in the old engine oil during a change. Joy! 

 

Best place to see updates for now would be on Instagram @Ryan_Trott
