1972 Datsun 240Z in LaVergne Tennessee

 Vehicle Description
This Datsun 240Z strikes that ideal balance where the iconic lines you love meet with some handy and stylish upgrades. So if youre on the lookout for a thoughtfully presented Japanese classic, you need to check out the details of this coupe. br / br / The 240Z did come in dark colors, but you know it never had the deep tones you see on this one. Thats because this Z-car has had a full professional respray later in life to a more modern hue. Its one of those intriguing colors that will have you swear it shifts between gray and blue depending on the sunlight, and the metallic element means it always has a nice radiance. But as much as this is a custom look, it does not betray the original spirit that made this a legend. The front bumper overriders were removed so you can get a cleaner view of that iconic long front end, and the rear remains uncluttered as the hatchback closes flush into the fastback profile. There is quality in the details, like straightness of the panels and the pliable weather-stripping. And speaking of details, Z-car fans know those wheels. They are the distinct later model alloys associated with the Black Pearl special edition. br / br / The white interior offers a striking contrast to the dark exterior. And as you peek inside, you can really tell there was a solid investment to make sure it has a bright and clean total presentation. Part of this thoughtful arrangement also means high-traffic areas like the door handles and capering are done darker colors, because after all, a car like this was meant for carefree driving. High-back bucket seats, a center console, grippy sports steering wheel, and deeply recessed gauges in a smooth dash are all part of a package that speaks directly to your enthusiast heart. In the center, youll love auxiliary dials set up high on the dash, and everything is working, including the clock! Datsun partnered with Clarion for their radios, and so its great to even have the era-correct AM/FM stereo still cranking out the tunes. Plus, while you have the stock heater controls, this has been upgraded to an R134a air conditioning setup (it likely just needs a recharge to blow ideally cold again.) It makes for a total package that feels clean, thoughtful, and absolutely vintage. br / br / The presentation under the hood is as nicely preserved and maintained as the rest of this coupe. Datsuns 2.4-liter inline six-cylinder has always looked great with its long block filling the long engine bay. Everything from the bright valve covers to the twin SU carbs has the tidy look of proper maintenance. So you have a motor that fires up with gusto, and the four-speed manual transmission put the full control firmly in your hands. As you hit the road, this 240Z reminds you why its the one that helped make Datsun/Nissan a household name. The nimble steering, power brakes w/front discs, and fully independent suspension have an immediate chemistry. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, you can see a freshness to this restored car that instills even more driver / br / Complete with the owners manual and service manuals, this is an ultra-desirable first-gen Z. So when a true classic has also been given the right investments, you know it wont wait for long. Call today!!!br/br/
