Details About 240Z Dashboards
The Purpose of this page is to give the reader information related to the small, but important details related to the design/styling of the dashboad in the Datsun 240Z. There were two basic designs used between the 70/71 and 72/73 240Z's.
For 1972, with the change in the center console design, the cigar lighter was installed in the "blank" space above the Hazard Light Switch. The size of the opening for the Hazard Light Switch and the opening above it, were about the same size for the 70/71 design. For 1972 the opening above the hazard light switch was enlarged so that the cigar lighter could be repositioned there (see red arrows). For 1973 a lighted, push/pull type Hazard Light Switch, replaced the older style toggel switch, and the indent for the ON/OFF decal was eliminated along with the decal itself.
