Lot 280 - 1973 Nissan 240Z Series II
|Odometer reading||71,898 miles|
|Result||Sold - £8,400|
The Nissan 240Z was the first generation of the GT two-seat coupés from 1969 to 1978. Dealers soon had long waiting lists for the 'Z'. Its modern design, relatively low price and growing dealer network compared well to other foreign sports cars of the time. The series I launched in 1970 with the Series II in 1971 with minor design changes in-between. This unusual example has been modified and could, given some light re-commissioning prove to be an effective racing car. A cam-tail has been added together with a louvered bonnet and enclosed headlights. Under the bonnet lies Chevrolet V8 mated to a B&M floor shift automatic gearbox. A Kenlow fan and oil cooler has also been fitted and it presents in vibrant orange.
