1972 Datsun 240Z CoupeIF you are in the market for one of the hottest imports cars currently sought after for a project car. look no more. Although this car has sat for many yrs here in the AZ desert. its body is about the most rust free desert find we have come across in a few yrs. 95% Rust Free Body / frame and floors . add to that I cannot see anysigns of previous body damage on the whole car except for a small spoton the front hood. and that too is very minor. Add to that this being somewhat of a rare 240z. with an automatic transand matching #s original engine. Built 1/72 this car also has alot of therare parts such as early emblems and override front bar and more. Brief history of the car: Original color combo was one of the coolest tocome out of Japan. sivler with maroon interior. The current white paint is horrible. old and looks like it was done with a spray can to be honest. But under that is a very solid unmolested body. The lower rockers. doglegs. frame areas. trunk panel are extremely solidand the desert has been very good to the factory sheetmetal. Plenty of pics to show you what we mean. Over the yrs some silly wiring repairs etc where done under the dash and about 20 yrs ago the car lost spark. Since then it just sat next to a house in the AZ sun till we received it lastweek. Its been clean up and we can get the motor to crank. but stillno spark at the points. May just need a new distributer. to get running. nbsp;not 100% sure. But once running. the motor should be fine. Clear AZ title in hand of course. The full interior will need restoring. but at least it looks like its stillvery complete. so that would make doing the job easier. Many people are doing motor swaps in these cars and I can see the funin that. but this car almost deserves to be restored back to stock asIm finding less of these cars on the road and original anymore. But at least you know with this car. you wont be chasing down rust issuesfor weeks on end. Body shops love charging you for fixing rust. Interiors and paint and still less costly to do. DRIVETRAIN: under the hood is the original matching #s motor2. 4L straight six (is missing the air cleaner now) but the rest of itAll seems there. It cranks when we jump the starter. but not with the key. And still no spark. Not sure why. Im sure youll want to atleast fix that. then rebuild the carbs and see how well it runs beforeyou just pull the motor. Unless you are doing a full restoration thenof course just rebuild it all. Trans and rearend should be fine. It did see for 20+ yrs. Also it does come with the fuel tank. not shownin pics. INTERIOR: this is where AZ heat etc did most of the damage. Theinterior is baked and its going to need just about everything. The goodthing is most of the core stuff is there and usable. The car at one timedid have dealer or factory installed AC. The original panel and switchfor it are still under the dash. Rest of it all seems to be gone. Solid floors and trunk from front to back. no rust we can find at all. Both front door windows dont want to roll up or down that easily if atall. but the glass is good. Regulators could be bad. All the importantswitches and factory gauges seem to be ok still. Another rare optionFor this car is a factory AM/FM radio ! Pass door only opens from theinside handle. Does have an slightly odd car smell. which wont matterif you plan on restoring it. Just gut the interior and start fresh andit would be the best way to redo it. Exterior: the paint is garbage. but the body is really in decent shape. No huge dents. no signs of any major body repair. 1 small repair on thefront center hood area. Sand it all down to the original Silver and startfresh. and you would have a great body for a driver or full on resto withless work then some rusty 240s out there people are offering for sale. Even the chrome on the bumpers and how straightthe bumpers are is really amazing. Az cars are like time capsules :)Chrome on the bumpers is decent too and original . It has a few dents and stuff on the car. but honestly. Id get the mechanicsdone first. and interior . and take it from there. Saw no rust on the floors. front hood area. hatch area or dr side dogleg. The pass side dog leg in front of the RR wheel has very minor rust. and I had to really scrape away paint to find it. but a super easy repair. SUSPENSION: the suspension looks to be pretty much bone stockIm sure some stuff is worn out but get it running and driving and startreplacing what you need. These suspensions are easy to work on and notall the expensive to rebuild either if you need to. Car also has PDB up front as well. Wheels and tires are all old and mismatched. Nothing you would want to keep. But the car rolls and steers fine. This car is 90% rust free Arizona carCheck out ALL the pics below ----->it may take a full minute for them all to load if you have aslow connection. so be patient AND looks for the extra scrollbar on the right side.
