Re: Auto transmission 240z

I doubt it's rare - a girl I went out with has a 72 240z automatic, and i've seen plenty of automatics being sold around here (california)

Re: Auto transmission 240z

...and automatics go out more frequently. So as you said, if the automatic dies in a 240Z most of the time the owner probably converted it to a 5-speed.

So there are fewer automatic 240Zs today than were sold originally. If you like the auto, but want something to do with it for more torque, get the 4-speed auto from a 1984 Nissan Maxima. That is the last year the Maxima has an L24 and also the first year Nissan used a automatic with overdrive in that car. So, that 4-speed auto is the only 4-speed that will hook up to the L-series engines. You can put a lower geared differential in your 240Z and still have some decent cruizing rpms. But the first couple gears will have some more punch.
