1971 Datsun 240Z



  • Very smart, LHD rally-prepared Datsun 240Z imported from California and UK registered in 2011
  • Professionally converted to International Rally specification by Rally Preparation Services of Witney at a cost of £60,000
  • Originally prepared for the 2012 London to Cape Town Rally and built for strength and durability
  • Subsequently returned to Motorman in Greece for further restoration and upgrading costing another £15,000-£20,000
  • It has a Greek AVR that is valid until November 2023 and, we understand, an FIVA identity card (not seen)
  • After the 2012 London to Cape Town event it has been dry stored and only used occasionally
  • Purchased by our vendor three years ago with plans to go rallying however the arrival of COVID changed his plans (and everybody else's)
  • In the meantime, the Datsun has benefitted from two new wings and a front-end respray
  • As well as historic rallies, this classic '24-ounce' is suitable for club events with night stages, regularity runs, demonstrations at Race Retro etc. or even just going to the pub on a winter's evening

GUIDE PRICE: £25,000 - £30,000+ buyers premium of 12.5% plus VAT (15% incl VAT)
