At least the left 3 are datsuns, may be a fourth off out of the pic.

Who knows, maybe he put up the wrong pic.

#2 & 3 are the right body style, looks like #1 is also. They could be 240, 260 or 280 Zs though. They used the same body for all, but I dont know the individual subtle differences.

They look like 280zx's to me.


If you look at the colors he listed, the fieros don't match. He probably just uploaded one picture.

Yeah those left 3 are ZX's I used to have one. I used to have a 280Z as well, the older 240/260/280z Looks better than the ZX to me.

The easiest to spot difference is the quarter window

Z



ZX

I knew someone who had them would know the minor differences that I dont know. Driving past one, they all looked the same till the 300Z came out.

The 70 was the best by far. I sold my 65 Sunbeam Tiger and 'upgraded' to a more 'sophisticated, sleeker looking European style GT' car from Japan. Great legroom and AC to boot. Strong motor with as much hp as the 260 engine in the Tiger. The Tiger was a higher speed car as it had a 2.88 rear axle for gas mileage and higher top end. Both cars were about the same price at roughly $4300 delivered even though 5 years apart. Might sound cheap but when you get out of HS and start making $2-$3 an hour, $110/month car payment plus insurance for 3 years after putting 1/3 down is not all that easy.

There were only 17.005 '70 240Z's made and are easily distinguished from the '71-73 models as they were the only ones with the grates below the rear window to relieve cabin pressure or aid ventilation. There was only a decorative 240Z applique on the quarter panel. From '71 on Datsun changed to a quarter panel emblem that also served as the air release and the rear grates disappeared. The first 3 years also had small chrome bumpers and not the fugly crash bumpers of the later 260/280 and ZX . Driveability was also much better without the early emission control system that appeared in 73 I believe.

Much as I love my Fieros, I would trade for either of these cars.

The 240-280 body style and chassis were what was used for Ferrari 250 GTO kit cars. Lots of people built them and left the straight 6 in it.

As far as the two go, I dont think any of the panels are actually interchangable between the Z and the ZX, they just resmeble eachother. I only had mine a short time. But would love to have an older Z again. Preferrably with an American V8.

No. 2 car sort of resembles a Jaguar XKE which was first manufactured in 1961 with an inline 6 cylinder engine and was subsequently launched in 1971 with a V-12 engine. The Jaguar XKE may have been the inspiration for the Datsun 240Z that was launched in 1970.

See photo of a 1969 Jag XKE at this following link:
http://www.bramclassauto.co...guar-XKE-2-2-001.jpg

See classic car history of Jaguar XKE at following link:
http://classic-car-history....jaguar-xke-etype.htm

Further to Jaguar XKE, I was watching Fast N' Loud this evening and they bought an old Jag XKE in Minnesota that was covered in snow and ended up being a complete rust bucket. They lifted it off the upper level of a car carrier with a fork lift and bent the roof badly. They paid $4,000 for the heap of junk Jag and believe it or not, sold it to a European Internet buyer for $6,800! Yet some buyers have a difficult time paying less than this for Fieros that are in good to excellent condition.
