The car has always been garaged and never driven in the rain. The car basically rust-free. The odometer currently has 158,515 miles on it. It has a clear title.
This 240Z was painted about 10 years ago. Before painting, the car was stripped of its windows and everything in the engine compartment removed. All of the chrome was redone and all weather-stripping replaced.
As noted in the pictures the car has an extensively modified suspension to include Ground Control coil-overs, 5-way adjustable Tokikos, urethane all around, and larger sway bars. To help the handling it also has a 3.90 R200 equipped with a NISMO clutch-style LSD. It also has brand new (less than 20 miles on them) Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 ultra-high performance tires. Needless to say the car handles superbly. When equipped with Hoosier R-compound tires this 240Z has won fastest time of day by over 2 seconds at local Corvette club sponsored autocrosses.
The brakes have been upgraded to Toyota S12W calipers up front and 300ZX disks on the back. The 5-speed 280Z transmission was recently fully rebuilt, with all new synchros and seals. The engine has approximately 20,000 miles on it since being rebuilt. It is a lightly modified L28 (flat top pistons, larger valves, mild cam, etc.) which dyno'd a while back at 165 rwhp. Unfortunately the engine recently has been slowly leaking at the rear main seal area. When the transmission was being rebuilt, the engine rear main seal was replaced but despite this did not staunch the leak. I suspect the leak is due to bad vertical rubber strips that are part of the rear main assembly. The carburetors were redone by ZTherapy and have no issues. The ignition has been upgraded to electronic and as seen in the pictures I've installed an aluminum 3-row radiator.
The dash is uncracked and in excellent shape, as is much of the interior including the door panels. Included with the sale are the original seat and seat belts should you wish to bring it back to stock.
