This 240z has been recently painted with a beautiful Nissan “Deep Scarlet” color with flat black trim, and the paint is in great shape. Fresh rubber seals all around following recent paint job. New carpet covers for the deck area and dashboard. Interior is in great shape, but the original radio is missing (removed long before I got the car). Real 16-inch Panasport racing alloys with locking lugs. Bridgestone Potenza tires have ~3000 miles on them. Anodized black aluminum bullet mirrors. Headlight conversion to modern bulbs with added relay to prevent the wire heating problem that is common to these cars. Nice aftermarket steering wheel (original was replaced before I received the car) with quick-release security measure. All fluids (coolant, transmission, differential, engine oil) all flushed and replaced about 400 miles ago. Car is smog exempt in CA.

This car is great all around. It looks good (gets compliments and wistful stares whenever it is taken out), sounds good, and drives even better. It holds temperature flawlessly and doesn’t overheat. It has been 100% garage kept ever since its last paint job and has never spent a night outside or seen rain. The car has increased in value a lot since I have owned it, and will probably continue to do so as more of them disappear. Sale comes with a large amount of old/new spare parts I have collected (carburetor sets, fuel pumps, original smog equipment, interior pieces, etc).

If you’re a serious buyer, send an email and we can set up a time to see it.

I do not need help selling this car.
