1976 Datsun Z-SeriesSelling trading my project to do something bigger. Car has had extensive body work done to it. Fuel cell in place, oil overs on all 4 corners, ig brake upgrade for front desk, omplete original interior, new bushings everywhere. Car will need a new hood prior to paint. Also comes with front air dam new in box from MSA. Work was started on dash to cover the side vents so that vintage air unit would blow from center only. Vintage air unit not part of the listing.
The VQ motor is out of a 2007 NISMO 350z that had 22k miles. I personally drove the car and verified the miles prior to pulling. I pulled the motor as well and the harness is complete, he only wire that was cut goes to the brake controller. Also have the drive by wire gas pedal and the ignition with original key. Transmission is still connected to motor. All accessories are also still on the motor.
McKinney motor sports sells the items needed for the swap (Drive shaft, engine mount, rans mount and shifter relocating bracket) for 1800. I kept the wiring harness complete so that I could use the existing NATS on the car.
I would prefer a project I will be able to enjoy with both of my kids when wife's not around. Will consider trades 2 doors with 4/5 seats, o 4 door, othing past 1986 and no rust buckets. Rolling chassis are welcomed if its the right one 55/56/57 no post rollers, omad, udson hornet, ontiac safari wagon and so on are welcome. I like classics a lot. I've done a lot of Zs and this was going to be my favorite one of all, ut have to be practical at some point.
Videos of the car can be seen on youtube, xcuse the bad angles the battery was dead on the car in front of it so I couldn't move it.Walk around:https://youtu.be/YKHwfF0BaM4
also added pictures of the two rust holes I mentioned and the air dam.
I still have the donor car I pulled the motor from so if there is any other part you think you may need off of the car feel free to let me know. Shipping will require a shipper who will crate the motor and trans for you. Calls are welcomed 281-704-7534 Kevin
