If you have been looking to pick up a clean and well-maintained Z, then this sporty black 260 is worth a look.It comes to us from a local owner who is moving out of the area and needs to part with it.It was recently serviced appx 2000 miles ago and sports a rebuilt 260 motor.

Over the years many minor upgrades have been performed.Some of those include the heads being tuned and tweaked by Rebello racing.Completely replaced suspension including Eibach springs, urethane bushings,and motorsport swaybars.The current owner also had the exhaust system redone.

This model was sold in the United States for the 1974 model year only, but was available in other countries until 1978. The engine was enlarged over that of the 240Z with a longer stroke to 2.6 L. In the U.S., federal emissions regulations forced a reduction in ignition timing and compression ratio, resulting in a lower power output (140 hp) for the 260Z's despite the additional displacement, whereas in other countries the power output increased to 165 bhp (123 kW; 167 PS). A 3-speed automatic transmission was an option, and the 4-speed manual remained standard.

Due to its relatively low price compared to other foreign sports cars of the time (Jaguar, BMW, Porsche, etc.), it became popular in the United States and was a major success for the Nissan Motor Corporation, which at the time sold cars in North America under the name Datsun. The 240Z also broadened the image of Japanese car-makers beyond their econobox success.

The Z is still to this day one of the most recognizable designs from that 70s and its formula for success makes it a classic to this day.

You dont see too many of these in black and the color really adds an aggressive look to this 260.Please give us a call or email to learn more or schedule a visit to our showroom.
