1969 Nissan Fairlady Z 432
1970 Nissan Fairlady Z 432 PS30-00092
– sold for $253,000
This car was imported from Japan in 2013 and had been acquired, incredibly, from its first and only owner. At the time, the Nissan was still registered on its original Shinagawa license plates from September 1970. Save for one repaint in its original color, it has never been taken apart, and it remains in remarkably original condition throughout. Everything continues to function as it did when it left the factory, including the original radio, clock, and heater. Additionally, the car includes its original Nissan tool roll, spare tire, and foot-well flashlight, and it also features the optional rear spoiler and desirable factory magnesium wheels.
