MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to present this solid California, first year 1971 Datsun 240Z you see before you. This Datsun will stand out from any other Datsun you\'ve seen thanks to its upgraded Scarab V8 conversion with a 327-CID engine (cast No. 3959512, date code K185 (Nov. 18, 1965) very rare Chevrolet block used only in special high-performance cars and sold only to those who know what to ask for. This Datsun has the privilege of being one of the first 240Zs to come out of Japan.
This Datsun pictured here has had the pleasure of its factory inline six-cylinder engine upgraded to an Edelbrock 327-CID V8 engine which was capable of competing with Cobras, Mustangs and Corvettes! The factory transmission has been replaced with Chevrolet automatic transmission with a Lokar shifter. The handling is fantastic, and with the powerful engine and Eibach suspension, this car drives like a dream.
The exterior is a quality paint job with a metallic maroon color and period black racing stripe down the passenger\'s side. This Datsun has mini lite wheels with newer tires and plenty of tread. The interior is a sophisticated yet sporty black vinyl and is comfortable for the highway or racetrack. We will note that the horn is inoperable.

This car is also street legal so it can turn heads even on a trip to the grocery store or a night on the town! With proper maintenance and care, this unique car\'s value can only go up! VIN is HLS3022093, and mileage currently reads 35,162 on a clear California title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!
