A factory-commissioned 1972 Datsun 240Z restoration sold for Over $100,000 at Auction. It's one of 37 Z-cars restored by Nissan North America as part of its Vintage Restoration Program.

According to Jalopnik and The Drive, Nissan North America bought a number of early 240Zs in 1996, and gave them to four Z specialist shops for full restoration. These shops were responsible for completely disassembling, repairing, repainting, and reupholstering the cars to early 1970s spec, also adding better tires, new brake pads, a new clutch, and modern suspension components for reliability and legal purposes. Once that was done, Nissan sent the cars to 10 different dealerships across the United States, where they were sold for roughly $27,000 with a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.
