Datsun 1972 240z for sale. This is a 1972 240 chassis (pre-smog) with the motor, wiring, dash panel, and gas tank and lines from a 1982 Datsun 280zx turbo. Car is bare bones metal and wiring inside - set up for autocross.

Seats are removed.
Has sunroof with parts.
280zx gas tank for larger fuel capacity.
"Z" wooden shift knob.
Original 240z wooden steering wheel.
280zx Digital gauge cluster with turbo psi boost gauge.
Wider tires on aluminum rims for autocross.
Arizona Z-car shocks - lowered 1" total to a decent autocross height, but not too low.
Arizona Z-car aluminum high capacity radiator.
Wilwood disc brake upgrade.
Attachment points for 3-point seatbelts or racing harnesses.
Floor panels replaced with aluminum diamond plate.
Windshield has crack in it from something falling on it in storage, but still works.


I built this car 14 years ago, drove and raced it for a year. Then life got in the way and I didn't have time for it. Now it is time for me to let it go as I am starting a family. It would make a great autocross car or daily driver after some TLC. Car ran great up to 12 years ago, but has been stored since then and is currently not running. I have not hooked up a battery to test it, but I would give it some TLC (oil change, new battery, check lines etc), before giving it a go. Passenger rear tire is flat from storage and looks like it will need a replacement. Other tires are old but look good to go.

I would like to sell it but am in no rush.

Car will need to be towed.
