1973 Datsun 240Z

SOLD.  The asking price is $16k, and that price is firm.  It’s solid, with a bit of rust under the battery tray, but otherwise super solid.  See pics below.  Also included (if wanted) are a strong 2.4 engine and a 5 speed and all the hard to find parts to convert to manual.  You’d have to buy a clutch set and a clutch master and slave, which are available on rock auto or zcarsource.  I have the pedals, the factory hydraulic line, the shift boot, the cross member, etc…
Car runs and drives fine as is, but smokes a bit at high RPM

Compression is 170, 170, 165, 170, 150, 125.  This engine is numbers matching.

1967 Datsun SSS

This 1967 Datsun 411 SSS is for sale.  $11,000

Extremely rare: 1 of about 12 known to be on the road in the USA right now.  And 1 of about 6 originally equipped with a manual transmission.

The car is really well sorted.  Runs like a top.  The entire braking system was done, all new rubber lines, master, slaves, and shoes.  Park brake works great.  Many of the brake parts were replated in zinc.
Suspension also totally gone through.
No-matching R16 engine with dual carbs, runs great, excellent even compression across all cylinders.  Lots of replated parts under the hood too.
Interior has a new headliner and seat covers (not new upholstery), stereo, and good floor mats.
The paint is original with a fairly decent clear sprayed over the patina.  Some of the clear is now chipping off of the roof.

Some negatives: the condition of the paint, obviously, the rust in the lower rear quarters, damaged or missing door seals (the hatch has a new seal), doesn’t like to start when it’s cold.  With the 4 speed, top speed is really only about 55 mph.  A 5 speed or a roadster rear diff would help with highway speeds.

Some positives: It’s been gone through, so the fuel, brakes, engine, and electrical all work.  It’s ready to drive.  It’s uber-rare, so you’ll be the only one at the car show.  It’s the SSS version, with the big, bad 1600 motor.  It has new tires and really nice 510 wheels (not the ones pictured, they don’t come with the car).

F150 Overly Aggressive Lumbar Modification (2015-2017)

Truck

The new NeedThatCar 2016 F150 is proving to be a great vehicle, which will fill many roles.  But there was a problem with the seat comfort that had to be rectified before I could drive it very far.  It has FAR too much lumbar support, and even though it’s adjustable, even in the most relaxed position, it’s too much.  So much, in fact, that it would cause back pain after as little of 10 minutes of driving.  I do not have previous back issues, so this was very unsettling after just a few days of ownership.
