Hello everyone!! 3 days ago I bought my dream car. I am an 18 year old with a knack for buying non working vehicles. I got a 1970 Datsun 240z! I have been looking for one of these cars for close to 3 years, but I thought I was priced out. and after mostly completing my 65 Mustang restoration I could not pass this one up. I found this guy on Facebook marketplace, and bought it for $450. Forgive me as I dont know a huge amount about these cars. I know the basics like the history of them and some cool tidbits not but a whole lot. I found out thru posting on a Datsun facebook group that I have a "Series 1" car, which I would love to learn more about. I have also learned that its basically a sin in the Z world to modify these cars. Unfortunetly I dont have an engine with this car, so it will be impossible to do a numbers matching restoration. What is everyones opinions here?
Here is what I know about my car so far:
1970 Datsun 240z series 1
Factory color was sunshine yellow, is now black
Still has power antenna, but has an AM/FM radio with an AM radio faceplate
Non AC car
will need floors, rear panel, rear quarters, and front right shock tower
Thanks for the read and I would love any opinion's, advice, or ideas. Thanks!!
