This Bring A Trailer auction should get interesting! Incredible Restoration of a 1970 Datsun 240Z #2545 - $100,000 with 4 days to go!
Is this the Gold Standard of early 240's?

62 Numbers behind mine, both build date 3/70. Probably was on the same boat.

Rick Morgan said Nissan North America offered him '6 figures' for his #13 car long before we even met him a decade ago.

This BAT car has a lot going for it; low number, perfect condition, restored to bone stock specs, numbers matching, the provenance of Mr. K and the Franklin Mint connection. Also, it surfaces to availability during the most-virulent value increase in Z history.

My understanding about this car is that the owner died unexpectedly and had not made provisions for the car after his death. His family sold it to a dealer they knew, who now has it on BAT? Something like that.

I guess there is a life lesson involved here; make some provision in your Will for the disposition of your cherished Z when you're gone, and please spell my name correctly. 8)
