Carlisle Auctions Is Selling A Time-Capsule In The Form Of A Datsun 240-Z

This well-preserved classic boasts original numbers matching motor and transmission, a rare color scheme, and exceptional drivability.

When it comes to vintage cars, few hold the allure of the Datsun 240 Z Coupe, especially when you come across an example as well-maintained as this 1973 model. Designed for enthusiasts and engineered for performance, this particular 240 Z represents the epitome of classic Japanese automotive artistry.

Under the hood, you'll find an original numbers matching motor and transmission, a seal of authenticity that collectors treasure. Elevating its performance capabilities are upgraded round top SU carburetors, enhancing not just the speed but also the driving experience. The car's mechanics are as sound as its aesthetics, with all gauges and lights in full working condition.

What sets this car apart is its rare and original paint combination: a 113 Green exterior paired with a burnt orange interior. It's a look that simultaneously stands out and remains timeless, offering a burst of color that perfectly complements the car's classic structure.

The car's originality extends to its interior, featuring an uncracked dashboard that has been painstakingly preserved, which is often a rarity in classic cars of this age. And for those concerned about durability, the floors and chassis present no signs of rust, offering further proof of this vehicle's remarkable condition.

Perhaps an interesting addition for California residents is the presence of a smog/emissions pump. While the pump has been removed to enhance performance, it does come with the sale of the car, providing an option for those who wish to adhere to state emissions standards.

In summary, this 1973 Datsun 240 Z Coupe runs and drives exceptionally well, offering a harmonious blend of originality, performance, and aesthetic appeal. Whether you're a long-time collector or a newcomer captivated by vintage charm, this 240 Z stands as a testament to the enduring allure of well-engineered and well-preserved classic cars.
