I'm trying to find out if vin # hl s30-15600 is a 70 or 71 240z. The date on the door says 12/30 and it has all the 70 markings but the title says 71. I'm also trying to find out how much its worth, the floor is gone but it still looks good.

Please Help

Thanks

If the title says 71, then it's a 71. basically when they came over on the boat at the end of the year (late 70 models) the dealers had the option of titleing them as either 70 or 71's. Of course if the called them 71's then they would be the new models, and that's what a lot of dealers did. My car is also a early 71 meaning it is basically a first generation 70 model. There's a good article on the zhome page about this. I put the link to it below. Go there for a better explanation. As far as worth, if the floor is gone (serious rust) I wouldn't give more than $2000, even if the resyt of the car is showroom new. A better offer would be close to $1000 for a running car. Prices on z's are all over the board. Rust free ones are the only ones worth buying, and none are worth buying to sell as a short term investment.

This is not always the case. My car was titled as a '71 when I first bought it. It was built in 7/70 and I thought that it was a '70. I called Nissan headquarters in California to ask them. They sent me a letter stating it was a '70. I took this letter to my state Department of Motor Vehicles and they re-titled it as a '70.

The dealer pretty much had the option. Never thought about trying to get mine verified as a 70 model. I might try it just to see what happens.
