Japanese cars are one of the fastest appreciating segments in the vintage car market right now, and arguably none are more interesting than the tale of the 1974 Datsun 260Z 2+2. Best of all, you can pick up a terrific-driving stick-shift example of this classic for a value price.
The metallic gray paint has a timeless sense of style, and that just seems right on a 1970s Z-car, because it redefined motoring in America and continues to have a big following today. The soft glow of the .....
color shows off the sleek lines that made this car iconic. And the details are correct, right down to the chrome bumpers and badging. The largest upgrade you're likely to spot is the set of 16-inch Enkei wheels. They really make this look like a proper Japanese machine while also coordinating with the paint. So it's a welcomed addition that doesn't mess too much with the originality. This level of stock style is especially nice to see considering Datsun only imported the 260Z for one year, and it was also the first year the 2+2 option was available. These are two extraordinary vintage vehicle facts that will make this distinguishable its entire life.
The black interior looks great against the exterior gray, and it continues this car's very vintage style. There are nice details, like the dome light that greets you when the door opens and the vent rivets in the high-back front bucket seats. Those important first-year rear seats have the look of good care and investment. You likely won't be using them too much for passengers, but the 2+2 became quite a nice car for folding them down and adding luggage for a long road trip. And that attitude continues today with all the well-placed controls that make this one a terrific driver's coupe. Details like the radio, tach, and clock are still the stock units on display so that the car looks complete and you have the option of restoring them if you so desire. Your overall impression inside and out will be a car that has been driven and enjoyed, but it's done with care and reasonability to make sure it looks memorable in any crowd. So its history looks a lot like your plans for the future.
The 260Z had a newly enlarged 2.6-liter inline-six that could rev like a European, but it's built with a reputation for reliability never seen before. And the four-speed manual transmission makes it a ton of fun. This example looks clean, well-maintained, and complete - right down to the twin SU-style carburetors. The result is a car that has an unmistakable vintage sound, but it fires up and runs with the kind of confidence not felt in many other coupes approaching the half-century anniversary. The same can be said for the nimble suspension and front disc brakes.
Here's your chance to get an interesting classic that's also a blast to drive. The affordable price is just the cherry on top. Call today!!!
