Used 1971 Datsun 240Z for sale in Houston, Texas
Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is very pleased to present this very well preserved 1971 Datsun 240Z. The Nissan Fairlady Z, or S30, as the Datsun 240Z was known in Japan was launched initially only as a two-seater & the budget Jaguar E-Type formula was clear and present: long hood, short deck, a revvy overhead-cam six, independent suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, a four-speed transmission, and full gauges—real sports car credentials. The 2.4-liter SOHC six was an upsized relative of Datsuns robust 2.0-liter I-4. Both are composed of an iron block with an aluminum OHC head; induction came courtesy of dual side-draft Hitachi carbs. The only trans offered in the U.S. was a four-speed manual (other markets got a five-speed, and an optional three-speed automatic showed up in 1971). Although 150 horsepower doesnt sound like much these days, it was plenty for a close-coupled sport coupe weighing around 2,400 pounds. This example repainted in British Racing Green has a period correct 2.4L mated with the traditional 4-speed manual gearbox. The black vinyl interior is showing very little wear and the undercarriage shows nice as well. The stainless exhaust, aluminum alloy wheels and the Kelly tires are obviously newer additions, but overall this 1971 Datsun 240Z seems to be an actual survivor.
