Datsun 240Z

Introduction

When it comes to old school automotive design the 240Z remains pretty unbeatable. Gorgeous from every angle it’s a design that just gets better the more you stare at it, and stare at it you will!  

A typically Japanese concoction combining the world's best selling design cues. Classic British cars, US fastback Muscle and a good dose of Italian design house flavour added for good measure. 

There aren’t many cars that unite people; Surely this is one we can all agree on? Beautifully designed, a fantastic engine and a platform made from an age-old recipe that remains so brilliantly driveable 50+ years later. It sounds great, the problem is finding one that lives up to expectations...

Here it is and we can't tell you how utterly fantastic it is... Restomod perfection, an example we are extremely proud to have with us. Just look at it!

The culmination of a lifetime's research and ambition, a 240Z restored from the ground up with one clear vision; A 240Z sympathetic to the period whilst utilising the combined knowledge and experience of the Global Z community past and present to create something truly wonderful.... 

A well known car in the Z Community, regularly seen at Classic shows, awarded 2nd Place at Donington Historic 2019, beaten only by a completely original 20K mile Datsun 260z! 

We have an incredibly detailed level of documentation covering the journey from day of purchase, through the full bare metal preparation and rebuild process, every decision and every modification bringing us to what you see here today. An incredible amount of work, attention to detail and love. 

Anyone looking for something utterly special, get in touch! Here’s an opportunity to secure one of the very best Z’s around.
