Restored 1972 240Z RB25



A handful of other pictures located here: https://imgur.com/a/ZTWmMCw

Fully restored and modified '72 240Z in excellent shape. I have owned the car for the past 10 years and have rebuilt it from the ground up including a down to metal professional paint job. The car is turn key and ready to go for anything. Too much to list and receipts for almost everything going back to the 1970s with the original owner including log book, manual, warranty info, etc. The engine is a freshened up Series 2 RB25DET with just over 400HP with all supporting modifications (fuel, turbo, coils, etc.) new and professionally installed and tuned on a dyno with a PowerFC. Even the check engine light is functional.

Suspension is a complete custom coil-over setup with all new urethane bushings, oversize disc brakes, MSA sway bars and OS Giken LSD. The chassis was stiffened and setup by the late John Coffey at Beta Motorsports.

Interior is custom two tone black/brown with Recaro SRD seats and a properly installed rollbar with DOT/FIA approved 4pt harnesses for both driver and passenger. Dash is redone and contains custom Speedhut gauges in all factory positions.

Car is located in Southern California and listed at $35,000 or best offer

I contacted them, but they wanted a reserve that was fairly low since it wasn't original.

With that said, the car is pending sale at this point.

I've heard they can be difficult to work with sometimes. Hope the sell goes through for you. Got to hurt to let her go.
