Earlier today we featured a beautiful 240Z, but the seller was asking an astronomical amount for it. So we thought we would go hunting to find a similar condition 240Z, but at a more realistic price. After doing some searching we actually found another one on eBay, plus it has a manual transmission. The current bid is at $10,000 with the reserve still unmet and a BIN price of $24,900.
While we wish it was painted in the more eye catching orange, this car’s original bright red paint is in great condition and looks amazing. We are sad that the original wheels and mirrors have been changed too, but on the plus side these parts were dealer installed options and with the headlight covers they make the car look very sporty.
This car’s 2.4L straight six looks great and is unmodified. The seller even has receipts for maintenance going back to 1980. We bet running through the gears in this Datsun would be a blast, especially on some curvy back roads. The original exhaust has been swapped, but at least it was swapped for a nice sounding ANSA exhaust system.
We really like the 240Z and we are glad to see that there are still some really nice examples floating around. We’re even happier to see that the seller of this car is asking less for it. If the car from this morning sold for their asking price it could be a new record and it makes this one look like a bargain. We have no doubt these cars will go up in value as more people find out about how great they are to drive. Hopefully the seller has set their reserve lower then their BIN price, but either way this is a much better find.
