Craigslist – 1972 Datsun 240z – cheap

I’m a Craigslist troll. Any chance I get, i’ll be on there searching ‘Datsun’.

This one pulled up this morning, and it looks like a steal. A stored 1972 orange 240z with tons of recent goodies. Really, there should be a 1 in front of that price.

Just in case the link is gone, here’s the post / pics.

Up for sale is a 1972 Datsun 240Z.

This car was pulled out of a carport several months ago after sitting for several years.
I’ve gone over most of the mechanicals, and the Z is now back in great driving condition. 
This is a clean title California blue plate Z, however it does have rust in the floorpans, lower rear corners and hatch.
The chassis and body are solid, and you can either drive it around as is and do the body work over time, or just do the body work right away and have a great 240Z to drive around in.
It is a complete Z that hasn’t been butchered, with full original interior in great condition. 
I have too many project cars, and as this is the most sorted of the bunch, I’m letting this one go.

  1. I have a 1972 240 z front bumper and valance new oem i would like to sell . also one original hub cap. any Idea of worth ?

    1. hey pontiacbuddygreen, of course w/ prices of these things, it’s only worth what someone is willing to pay (as my mom always said). With that in mind, from my experience:
      front bump – $100 used ok shape / $200 used good shape / $300 new
      valance – free-$50 used / $100 new (not much demand for these because most get the modern valances).
      original hub cap – free-$10, just make a friend

      hope that helps!
