*Iconic Japanese classic
*Restored with no expense spared (2015-2017)
*'As close to factory-new as you can get'
'In the sixties no-one who knew anything about cars would have predicted that the Japanese would ever build a classic or thoroughbred. By the early seventies, however, they had to change their minds - the Z-Car had arrived.' - Graham Robson.
Formed in 1933, the Nissan Motor Company marketed most of its exported products as Datsuns until the latter name was dropped in 1983. There had been Datsun sports cars before the 240Z, most notably the Fairlady series of the 1960s, but with the Big Z's arrival in 1969 the Japanese firm established itself as a major force to be reckoned with in the sports/GT market. Indeed, the Datsun 240Z was the first Japanese-made sports car to achieve worldwide recognition. Although designed at Nissan by a team headed by Yoshiko Matsuo, with input from consultant Count Albrecht Goertz, stylist of the BMW 503 and 507, the 240Z looked every inch a European product.
Boasting a 2.4-litre overhead-camshaft six-cylinder engine, five-speed manual (or three-speed automatic) transmission, independent suspension all round and a generous equipment level as standard, the keenly priced 240Z proved an outstanding success in the all-important North American market, taking sales from MG, Triumph and Jaguar. Writing in his book 'A-Z of Sports Cars', Mike Lawrence observed: 'With a top speed of 125mph (0-60mph in eight seconds), a high level of trim as standard (options included air conditioning), a low price and new standards of reliability, the 240Z not only replaced the Austin-Healey 3000 but took sales from both the MGB and Jaguar E-Type.'
In addition to its commercial success, the 240Z was immediately successful in motor sport, particularly in club racing in the USA and on the world rally stage. Factory prepared and run rally cars quickly gained a reputation for durability on long distance events, especially the Safari Rally where the 240Z won outright in 1971,'72 and '73. Leading drivers included Edgar Hermann, Rauno Aaltonen, Harry Kallstrom, Shekhar Mehta and Tony Fall.
This beautiful Datsun 240Z has been restored in the UK over the last three years at a cost of tens of thousands of pounds. According to the vendor: 'as close to factory-new as you can get', the car comes with MoT to February 2018, a V5C Registration Certificate, and bills and photographs relating to the restoration.
