The Datsun 240z is one of the most iconic classic Japanese sports cars. These cars offered great handling in an attractive, yet affordable package. Most of these cars were driven hard, put away wet, and suffered from sever rust issues. This 1972 Datsun 240z wasn’t one of those cars, instead it was stored by the West Seattle car dealer from new. The car only has seen 714 miles and has been stored indoors for the past 40 years. The car has been serviced and is now for sale. It can be found here on Craigslist Seattle, Washington for $25,000. Thanks to reader Andrew for sharing this find with us!
The interior doesn’t show any wear or tear, but does show its age. After a good cleaning and some vinyl treatment, this interior should look as good as new. The seller claims the car even smells like new. We love the red and black interior, but we wish this car had the manual transmission instead of the automatic.
The seller says the biggest problem with this car is that the paint was touched up at some point in the past 40 years and doesn’t look the best. Overall the car looks solid and should make for a great collectors piece or possibly a driver. Valuing this car is hard, as there aren’t any Zs with this low of mileage on the market. What do you think? Is $25,000 in the ball park or unrealistic? And is the automatic gearbox a deal breaker?
