BaT Auction: 1972 Datsun 240Z 5-Speed

This 1972 Datsun 240Z was acquired by the selling dealer three months ago and given a glass-out repaint in its original red color. Power comes from the 2.4-liter straight-six mated to an upgraded 5-speed manual gearbox and work conducted in preparation of the sale included an interior refresh, as well as inspections of the engine, suspension, and braking systems. Modifications include a front spoiler, Eibach springs, upgraded sway bars, a full exhaust system, an aftermarket radio, and a pair of JDM taillights. This 240Z is now offered in Oklahoma with various receipts and records, and a clean Oregon title.
