The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Classic Car Overview
The 1973 Datsun 240Z has an iconic style thats defining the new class of vintage sports cars. So when you can find an example that keeps the classic looks but has all the right subtle upgrades like slick paint and a larger motor then you know youve discovered something quite special. The brown color is exactly the kind of hue that belongs on a 70s machine. But as you get closer, you also see that it has a nice clearcoat luster from a more modern respray. This really makes the car pop every time the sunlight hits it. So youll love how that added glow highlights the crisp sheetmetal that includes the long hood w/lengthy power bulge, fastback profile, and the tailgate that neatly integrates into the racecar-inspired rear. There have been more nice investments in this car, but none of it was to distract from its classic style. You see it everywhere from the mirror-like chrome bumpers, to the slotted mag alloys that dealers loved to give loaded cars in the 70s. The butterscotch tan interior has a bright look thats absolutely inviting. High-back bucket seats, taut door panels, and plush carpeting make this a great place for two people to spend some time. Theres even an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo to have the best in driving tunes. But Datsun also knew that a proper sports car is all about the driver. Thats why you get a grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel, and the stick shift feels like it was perfectly placed in the cockpit. Plus, the crisp dash look positively European with the deep dual pods for the speedo and tach, and even the auxiliary gauges are at eye-level. At first glance, everything looks correct under the hood with Datsuns long block, dual carbs, and even the factory air cleaner cover. But this Z-car holds a secret. Youre actually looking at the larger 2.8-liter straight-six borrowed from a 280Z. The motor still fires up with the same sturdy steadfastness you expect from a Datsun, but now you get an extra kick of power. And you really get to take advantage of it all with the control of the four-speed manual transmission. Plus, with a fully-independent suspension and front disc brakes, this classic is truly an enjoyable sporting machine. Complete with owners manual and build receipts, this is the cool original Z-car with the best subtle upgrades. So dont let something this unique slip away, call today!
