  • Original UK righthand drive example
  • Comprehensive history file
The Datsun 260Z was the second generation of 'Z' two-seat coupés produced by Nissan in Japan from 1975 to 1978. For the 260Z, the engine was enlarged over that of the 240Z with a longer stroke to 2.6 litres and the power output was increased to 165bhp. 1974 brought for the first time to the S30 line a new 2+2 seating version, which offered room for four passengers and an extra 11.9” of wheelbase. These cars have a notably different roofline from the two-seat coupés, incorporating larger opening quarter panel windows. The 260Z claimed a few updates or improvements over the 240Z. The climate controls were more sensibly laid out and easier to work, and those cars with air conditioning now had the system integrated into the main climate control panel.

The example offered here is in very good order throughout having been recently treated to a window out, panel off full repaint costing we are informed in excess of £10,000, and an interior that shows little sign of age. Offered in a very desirable colour combination, this Datsun must be one of the nicer examples currently available and only has a mere 44,000 miles showing on the odometer. The car comes complete with a comprehensive history file detailing previous maintenance work including photos of the recent paintwork, with a record of all owners from new verifying the low mileage. Offered with a V5C registration document, current MoT until May 2020 and previous MOT certificates and sundry invoices, this is a perfect opportunity to obtain such a truly rare and desirable UK car in righthand drive with low mileage.
