THE DATSUN Z SERIES

With the 'Big Z's arrival in 1969, the Japanese firm established itself as a major player in the sports/GT market. Boasting a 2.4-liter, overhead-camshaft, six-cylinder engine, independent suspension all round and a high trim level as standard, the keenly priced 240Z proved an outstanding success in the all-important North American market. The 2.6-liter 260Z followed in 1974, the larger engine making for greater flexibility. Performance was increased throughout despite the increased weight thanks to 160 horsepower and a stiffer chassis. These iconic Z cars, or Nissan Fairlady as the sister version was called, made their mark on the era, and have become increasingly more collectible in the past decade.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Available is an incredible survivor of the Z-Car family. Delivered new to Robert Fox of Minnesota on April 30th, 1974, it remarkably stayed in his ownership until 2017 when it changed hands for the first time with only about 5,400 miles on the odometer. A desirable model year, this 260Z features the original smaller bumpers of the earlier cars which were changed mid-year due to new legislation. Additionally, Mr. Fox made sure to order the car with the highly necessary air conditioning option. The vehicle has stayed original inside and out with the body presenting extremely well and the interior incredibly fresh. A section of the paint had been touched up early in its life due to a scratch and the fender recently had a re-blending completed by a specialist. Despite the harsh northern winters, the 260Z stayed safe from decay and was kept in a heated garage for its entire life. Over the course of time, the car received a new battery, spark plugs and brake master cylinder. Besides the paint touch up and minor mechanical work, this Datsun remains in superb original condition, and looks just as it did when it left the factory in December of 1973. Factory markings and decals are present, and just 5,435 miles were recorded on the odometer at the time of cataloguing. Included with the car are its original factory manuals, build sheet, and a signed and notarized letter stating the mileage, single owner history, and selling dealer. A more original Datsun Z would be very hard to find.
