One Foot In The Crusher: 1972 Datsun 240Z

The advertisement starts out in the right direction —  6cyl, 4speed stick, — but things only turn south as the listing continues — needs to be towed, runs and drives good but carbs need adjusted,rebuilt or replaced runs great then runs rich. At least the body doesn’t look to be a total nightmare…but it is hard to tell with rattle can black paint job.  Find this 1972 Datsun 240Z offered for $2,900 in Graham, WA via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.

Upon closer inspection things only get scarier — rust has totally eaten away in the rocker sills and the interior is completely trashed.   Still, if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty on a project, this could be a pumpkin just waiting for prince charming…or something.
