The Z was re-painted and upholstered in the early 1990's and it looks like it was finished last week. Extremely high end paint and detail to finish. The car is spectacular. I will list below what I see and know about this Datsun 240z.

Engine and Drivetrain... The mechanics have never been out of the car so what you are seeing is the original engine compartment. It is VERY clean and leaks nothing. There is some dirt in certain places from being driven 90 thousand miles. The clutch, transmission, steering and brakes have no issues. I would have the carburetors rebuilt. They work fine and do not leak but I think it could run better if overhauled.
The Body and Paint.... WoW! There is not a spec of rust anywhere and it has never been in an accident. This is not just one of the finest Z's I have seen, it one of the finest cars I have seen. The 20 plus year old retoration is as near perfect as you can have. There are 4 pepper flake sized dings on the right side of the car that the "Dent Doctor" could take out without touching the paint. Very showable and looking like it was 1972 again. A 10 out of a 10.
The Interior..... Here is where I am going to tell you about flaws. The clock does not work and the light that shows you the flashers are on has been pushed in a 1/4 inch and does not light. Everything else is 100%. Seats, carpeting, headliner, door panels, dashpad, gauges.. Like new.
The Glass.... All Nissan and perfect. Scratchless and no pits.
In the tool boxes behind the seats, everything is there as seen in the photos. .
If you are looking for one of the finest early Z's it is this one. Fun to drive, rocket to look at and needing almost nothing. By the way, I have the original wheels in the boxes that go with the car.
The tires are Pirelli's and although in like new condition they were made in 1997. I would recommend a new set of tires before driving much.
