New to the Forum, 240Z with most dealer options

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, good evening.


I recently got my hands on a 1972 240z and decided to join the forum so I can learn more about her and Z cars in general. She's an automatic and completely matching numbers. 


The car itself runs beautifully and I don't regret the purchase one bit. Its white with a red interior and is almost entirely rust free save for some minor surface rust in the battery area and a few other places. The interior is in good condition. The dash is not cracked and all the gauges work. 


The car itself came with a lot of dealer options installed. It has the AC, Dual Racing Mirrors, Front and Rear Guard Rails, Shade Kit on the rear glass, and the 240z side stripe kit. Interestingly, it also came with a full set and spare of original Radial Snow Tires that were sold by Datsun dealerships. It also has the original floor mats. 


Also, I don't know if this was a dealer option, but it also came with a pristine Beltek 8-track player in the glove compartment.


I'm only the second owner, so I hope to learn a lot more about her. Thanks for stopping by! I plan to get some more pictures up tomorrow.
