On an aussie datsun site, someone is selling their '1969' 240Z which they say is all original right down to the hub caps for AU$15,000.
Please correct me if i'm wrong but i thought all 500 1969 datsuns were left hand drive and all exported to america.
I have a 12/71 240Z which is # 01810, could this guy just have an early '70 model, considering that by the end of '71 they weren't up to 2000 yet?

Oh yeh the site is ....

In the classifieds... This is mainly a 1600 (510) site, but they sometimes have a few bits and pieces for zeds. And it's aussie so i don't have to double the price of everything.

I dont think you have the correct info. I have a 10/70 240Z and it is #11966 so yours cant be that low and made a year after mine. Are you reading the right number? NB

Nitrouzboy...

Please remember the world doesn't revolve around the USA.
I currently have HLS30-06330, which is a 1970 Z. Deck Vents, hand throttle, no vents in the quarter panel C-Pillar.
I also own S30-06225, a Nissan Fairlady Z, which by Serial is an EARLIER production car, but it has C-Pillar vents, and a manufacturing date in 1971.
Both cars were bought within 350 miles of each other, here in the USA.
The same goes for Austrailian production. This car COULD be an Imported Fairlady Z (S30) or and Australian model with the L24 (HS30)--but there are also Fairlady 240Z's (Again: HS30).
I believe the information to be correct, I'll bet money the VIN is either 'S30' or 'HS30' and without a doubt the car is RHD. If by chance it's a LHD model (HLS30) then it's an import from the USA or Canada.
Cars move all over the globe, and collector/enthusiast cars moreso than others!

1969 240Z No. 0004



This car was imported to Australia by Nisaan for Auto Magazine testing and articles before being sold. It is the oldest known 240Z in the world.
