1971 Datsun 240z Coupe

This right-hand drive, five-speed 240Z was delivered new to the UK and first registered here on 1st January 1972, making it one of the earliest to reach these shores. The Datsun was immediately exported to South Africa (papers available) and was acquired there in 1986 by the previous owner, who kept the car for the next 24 years and brought it back to the UK when he emigrated in 2006. Totally restored in 1994, it is described as completely standard apart from a free-flow exhaust, ported cylinder head, electronic ignition and a lightened/fully balanced crankshaft. The car is finished in silver with black interior and is described by the private vendor as in generally very good/excellent condition. A 'delight to drive quickly', this Japanese classic enjoys tax-exempt status as an historic vehicle and is offered with current MoT and Swansea V5 registration document.
