1971 Datsun 240Z 2JZ Turbo 6-Speed


Recommended Posts

Pains me to say, but looks like time may have come for me as it has for others.


I started school a couple months ago and keeping this car is an expense I can't justify. I've spent the last month or two cleaning up the car and fixing small points here and there. My car is pretty well documented on here, feel free to ask any questions. I'll update the post as I remember things.


Up for sale is my 1971 Datsun 240Z.

Lots included, tons of stock parts, lots of spare JZ parts, interior carpet, panels, and lots of parts that haven't made it on the car like a dash cap, electric power steering, new steering parts.


It is a 10 footer for sure, to make it shine it can use some body work, but mechanically it is really sound. Rust has been cut out and replaced so solid chassis. I've driven it quite a bit this last summer including a 300+ mile round trip a little while ago so perfectly drivable. I'll update the posting as time goes.


Looking for $14,000 


Trades: maybe something interesting, really only looking for maybe a BMW 335i/xi N54, or a Jeep LJ, both with a bit of cash.

I'm with you I think an extra grand or two would probably clean it up real nice and make it much more presentable, I just have limited time and access.


I go back maybe once a month if I'm lucky, and spending my time off working on the car is a bit depressing.


Plus, no income anymore so I'd have to do it on credit which is not in my nature.

I still have full vinyl and most of the interior pieces from the series 1 I scrapped. Really only good for patterns for people looking for a restoration sort of job, but most of it is pretty okay. Was gonna sell for like $50 plus shipping. You can have it for the price of some tasty tacos next time you're around and we hang out. 


Also, for this interested in the car. I've driven it and can confirm that it's a pretty excellent ride. More well sorted in terms of function that most of the Datsun I come across. Period.

Thanks for that endorsement, and I've found and fixed quite a few things since then. Far more pleasant seating (chair moved back), driving position (pedals adjusted), much less noise from the exhaust and interior rattling. Tune is being worked on still, chickenman has been a big help and I plan on getting the tune more sorted before it goes anywhere.


I may take you up on that, I'll let you know next time I get back over the mountains, we'll have to take her out for a spin before she goes :D


Power wise, should be good for at least 500hp, the turbo apparently is rated for 650hp or so, but haven't seen too many people reach that point with it. Currently running 15lbs of boost. Feels like a pretty solid mid to high 300hp level to me.
