Project Z: 1974 Datsun 260Z 2+2

The 1974 Datsun 260Z was an evolution of the original 240Z that was first released in 1970 but it was only a one year affair before it was replaced by the 280Z in 1975.  The difference between a 240Z and a 260Z is hard to see from the outside…unless you find a 260Z 2+2, which added a small back seat and notched roofline. Today’s example isn’t perfect, but if it runs/drives it could be a good buy. Find this 1974 Datsun 260Z 2+2 offered for $5500 in Dublin, CA via craigslist.
