1973 Datsun Z-Series
This is a 1973 Datsun 240z that I have been working on for the last 3 years.First I installed a 3.5 Olds aluminum V8 and a T-5 5 speed trans, his involved a newdrive shaftand a newhydraulicthrow out bearing. I then upgraded the braking system with vented rotors and heavy duty calipers up front and solid disk breaks in back. I also installed a larger master cylinder and ahydraulice-brake (Drift Brake).The next step was body and paint, reinforced the floor frame rails to go the full distance of the floor tohandlethe extra power.There were a few minor rust spots that I repaired along with adding the new custom front and rear bumpers. I then painted it sunset orangewitchis a little lighter anda lotbrighter than theoriginalorange. I am not a professional body man or painter but it turned out real nice. Not show quality but great driver quality.I then bought some custom matching seat, ew carpet and new door panels. also a new dash cap. It has new 16" custom wheels and new 225/50/16 Dunlapdizerra 2 tires.The tach was replaced with a V8 tach so it would read correct. The oil pressure gauge is not currently working I am working on getting the factory gauge to work with the V8. I will have a working gauge installed before I sell it.
