The bad (DUN DUN DUN!):


The car has some rust problems starting to show through the paint as well as a hole in the left front fender, yet the frame rails are in excellent condition

The paint is dirty, to say the least

Trim has been removed on the drivers side. I was experimenting with looks

The car was keyed in December, 2009. One scratch all the way around.

Plastic cover for manual choke is broken

Hood was dented in the front somehow

There is one 4"-6" crack in the passenger side of the dash

The CD player shuts off when shifted into 1st, 3rd, or 5th gear (fuse box wiring?)

There are places where there are oddball screws or washers, or something has been zip-tied instead of properly secured as it should be

Has a slight vibration in the front end that I can't find

The factory clock doesn't work

The fuel gauge needle just stopped working in the past month. It takes a tap or two to read correctly

I believe the Series I Z was '70-mid '71 and the later model 240Zs were considered Series II. The more desirable and rarer of the two is obviously the Series I.



Good thing I have a series one ;). I wasnt aware that they had different series, im assuming they made slight adjustments and those became the series 2? Get some pictures up! :P

S-1 were built from 10/69 to 12/70. Easiest way to ID them is the vents on the rear hatch. Also the S-1 had "240Z" on the c-pillar, whereas S-2 has the round Z medallion. S-1 steering wheel had indentations, not holes, on the spokes.

I've never had that accurate of a description of the differences between the two Series cars. Thanks guys.


There was some stuff I wanted to do before I got pics but the weather has been keeping me from them. I understand this thread it worthless without pics. I have older pictures of the car from the previous owner but I would rather not mis-represent the vehicle since the paint has deteriorated since then and some things have been removed.


If you want to bust my balls about not having many/any posts, go for it. I get on this forum to gather information and do research. Would you rather I shoot out a bunch of mindless posts that have no point what so ever?




Just to clear some things up:


The car is VERY drivable and fires right up with no issues.

The exterior is white.
