In 1969, the Fairlady Z (S30) was launched with a more stylish coupe body as a new model of the open body Datsun Fairlady (SL/SP). In Japan, the standard model (two specifications) equipped with the SOHC L20 engine with SU twin carburetors, and the Z432 was equipped with the S20 engine that had been installed in the Skyline GT-R were out in the market.

On the other hand, the Fairlady Z was also designed to expand sales in the North American market from the beginning of its development. In order to compete with American and European cars with larger displacements, as the North American and British specification versions of the Fairlady Z, 240Z were equipped with the L24 engine, which had an increased displacement of 2.4ℓ. In addition to producing rich torque in the low-speed range, the 240Z's excellent serviceability was highly acclaimed, and it became a huge hit in the North American market, earning the nickname "DATSUN Z" and selling 550,000 units in 10 years.

In addition to its success in North America, since the production of the high-performance Z432 was discontinued in 1971, the 240Z with the L24 engine, which had been exclusively for export, finally came to market in Japan. The lineup consisted of three types: the standard grade 240Z, the luxurious 240Z-L, and the 240ZG known as the "G-nose" exclusively in Japan, with a special FRP front bumper and overfenders.

Among the three, the 240ZG with its sharp and sporty front bumper (known as the "G" nose) is extremely popular, and because of its popularity, there are many individuals who have completed the "ZG look" modification.

This one is a genuine ZG with "Model 02662 / Class 0070" listed on the vehicle inspection certificate. It is equipped with a genuine "G" nose when it was all painted recently. The over fenders, dual vertical exhausts, and wheels are all original. And the L24 engine with SU twin carburetors is still in original. The interior has been maintained in its original condition with a wooden steering wheel, shift knob, 3 lotus meters in the center, tachometer, seats, and several maintenance records left by the past owner.
