My Z is for sale on Craigslist. I'm in Menlo Park, CA.
1971 Datsun 240Z Track or Street Ready

Text from the ad:
Up for sale a 1971 240Z with the L28 from a 280Z. This Z-car has been restored and prepped for the track. It has seen a half dozen track days and has performed flawlessly. Sadly of late responsibilities have taken me away from the track and it hasn't seen action in about a year, so its up for sale to someone who will enjoy and maintain it as it deserves.

* Decent paint job, British Racing Green, looks great, small dent in front hood and some fading paint
* Glove box signed by Mr. K
* Door locks, emblems, & side markers "shaved" for a clean, slick look
* Low-profile front air dam
* Good bumpers with riser bars removed
* H4 headlight upgrade, new wiring harness and relays
* JDM clear parking lenses with yellow lights
* L28 280zx motor, less than 7k on rebuild according to previous owner

* Coilover suspension, lowered

* Roll bar, nicely installed
* Sound deadening material in doors and interior panels
* Some interior removed for weight reduction (see pictures)
* New master cylinder, battery, plugs, etc.
* Lots of spare parts: seals, heater core, bulbs, front strut brace, gauges, etc.
* Heater core removed (included in spares)
* Current registration, all fees paid, no smog required
* Clutch is from a 2+2 (stronger clutch)
* Master cylinder is the a new 15/16"
* Clutch master and slave are both new
* Wheels are team dynamics 17" with Falken Azenis 215/45/R17 RT615 tires with plenty of tread

As mentioned, it runs and is drivable, but needs a carb tune, especially for cold driving.

Asking $5200 cash or also interested in partial/total trades, including Miatas, high end bicycles, etc.

Thanks for your interest,
