Auction Watch: 1971 Datsun 240Z

Take a gander at this crusty 1971 Datsun 240Z project here on eBay bidding for $1,301 with auction ending on Wednesday.


  1. Looks like a lot of good parts, but will need many times the (current) bid before it crosses the threshold from "decent parts car" to "weekend driver". Also, either it had a fast and furious erector set wing, or those holes on the decklid are indicative of a "rack" of some kind.

    Unrelated: I had a set of those wheels on my '72 240z before the Rota RB's came in. There isn't really an angle that makes them look good, is there?

    1. Also - I paid about ~$700 more than the current bid ($3241) for a running/driving '72 240Z two years ago with almost no rust (also a lifelong SoCal car) and pretty decent paint. Unreal that this thing is currently sitting north of $3k in it's state (rusty, incomplete, non-runner) is amazing to me.

  2. That ugly pup was taken for ride! OK I have nothing constructive to ad.
