You absolutely have to have a passion for cars to be able to restore one. Especially when that means selling your already ridiculously awesome supercharged 997S to finish it. Oh, and, committing 40 hours a week for 4 years. Yet that’s exactly what one brave, extremely motivated man did.
The 1972 Datsun 240Z, although a 40-year-old ride, is nothing short of stunning. For starters, the interior is 100% stock and in flawless condition. That’s because the owner personally tracked down every piece, either restoring or completely replacing them. The body was handed over, and impeccably restored by the experts at Miller Brothers Hot Rod Barn. And the suspension is jam-packed with upgrades from Arizona Z Car.
The engine you ask? Well forget about the 151 horsepower from the original Datsun 1600 engine. It was replaced with a SR20DET engine that features two settings: 320 hp on cruise mode, and 437 hp when you’re ready to take things to a whole new level. For those of you who aren’t keeping track, that’s nearly three times its original power.
Throw in the attention-grabbing lime green paint job and you’ve got yourself one of the baddest cars on the planet.
