This 1972 Datsun 240Z was sold new by Ken Keegan Imports of Los Gatos, California, and is finished in orange over a black vinyl interior. Power comes from a 2.4-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes 14″ American Racing alloy wheels, dual SU carburetors, chrome bumpers with overriders, rear window louvers, and a Kraco cassette stereo. The seller acquired the car in February 2021, reportedly out of long-term storage, and subsequent service is said to have included overhauling the carburetors, repairing the radiator, cleaning the fuel lines, and replacing the head gasket, water pump, clutch cylinders, brake booster, rear wheel cylinders, brake hoses, and brake shoes. This 240Z is now offered by the seller with the original warranty and service booklet, an owner’s manual, repair manuals, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
The car is finished in orange and features chrome bumpers with overriders, rear window louvers, a locking gas cap, and a chrome exhaust outlet. The seller notes paint repairs on the right-front corner of the hood and on the rear valance, the latter of which is fading. Other blemishes in the paint are depicted in the gallery below.
Four-spoke 14″ American Racing alloy wheels are mounted with 195/70 Kumho Solus tires. Service since 2021 reportedly includes replacing the brake booster, the rear wheel cylinders, the rear brake hoses, and the rear brake shoes.
The cockpit features front bucket seats trimmed in black vinyl together with matching door panels and carpets. A Kraco cassette stereo has been fitted to the center console. The cruise control has been disconnected, and the air conditioning does not blow cold.
Instrumentation includes a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 7k-rpm redline, and auxiliary gauges mounted in the center of the dashboard. The seller reports that the clock is inoperative. The five-digit odometer shows 52k miles.
The 2.4-liter L24 inline-six features dual SU carburetors and was factory rated at 151 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. Service since 2021 reportedly includes repairing the radiator, overhauling the carburetors, flushing the fuel lines, and replacing the head gasket, water pump, and fuel-level sending unit.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. The seller reports that the clutch master and slave cylinders have been replaced.
The original warranty and service booklet is included in the sale along with an owner’s manual and repair manuals.
