1972 Datsun 240z. Supercharged Lt1 T56 Wilwood Ac More! on 2040-cars
Charlotte, North Carolina, United States
This Datsun is not and was never intended to be built as a restoration project. This car was never intended to be built and brought back to stock formation. The whole idea of this car was to make a cool looking, cool sounding, fast street car that could be enjoyed in all driving conditions. Though the list of "negatives" are higher, be known its all smaller stuff. This car as is, right now, is a complete turn key car. The car doesn't leak, smoke, or make any weird noises from the motor or transmission. You turn the key, and it starts right up, idles fine on its own and will drive down the street. All the lights, blinkers, horn, gauges, wipers, radio and interior climate fan work as should. The motor pulls strong and the Transmission shifts smooth. The clutch grabs firm, yet easy to handle. The car brakes just fine and steers straight.
mods are as follow:
Suspension: Struts with coil-over sleeves
. Poly bushings here and there (not complete set).
OBD2 Lt1 with T56 trans.
GM "hot cam" performance kit
electric water pump
big aluminum Rad with multi-speed fan.
Vortech V2 supercharger with Vortech Water
to air Inter-cooler.
Crane digital ignition system with on the fly timing control dial.
300zx LSD diff and axles.
lightweight 17" wheels
Wilwood stage 3 kit: floating rotors and 4 piston calipers
on all 4 corners
Please call with any serious questions, I will be happy to answer as much as possible!(704-756-2146) For reference, I did NOT build this car. An older gentleman did, and he has passed away. Therefore, I do NOT have every ounce of knowledge about this Datsun.

Those who were disappointed when Datsun changed its name to Nissan over three decades ago may have been pleased to see the marque revived last year, even as a budget brand. Nissan's counterpart to its ally Renault's Dacia budget brand, Datsun has been steadily expanding its lineup of low-cost transportation for developing markets with the debut of the Go hatchback in India, the Go+ minivan in Indonesia and the On-Do sedan in Russia. And now it has returned to Moscow to reveal its fourth model, the Mi-Do.

Based closely on the On-Do sedan (which itself is based on the Lada Granta) the Mi-Do takes on a five-door hatchback bodystyle but with no more frills. It uses the same front-drive chassis with the same wheelbase as the sedan, but its chopped tail makes it a good foot and a half shorter overall. Into that compact shape, Datsun has fitted dual airbags, ABS and... well, that's about it. It's got a 1.6-liter, eight-valve inline-four kicking out a grand total of 87 horsepower to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. Bare bones, this is.
While delivery of the first On-Do sedans commences next month (with the first example going to an IT specialist in Omsk), the Mi-Do is set to begin delivery early next year. Scope out the video and press release below from the Mi-Do's reveal at the Moscow Motor Show.
If there's a trend in the auto industry we can firmly get behind, it's the small, light and affordable rear-drive coupe. The positive critical reception to the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ twins has encouraged other manufacturers to look at building their own rear drivers, and even a few to show actual concept cars based on the idea. The Chevrolet Code 130R from 2012 and more recently, the Nissan IDx twins that were first shown at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show both come to mind, as does the brand-new Kia GT4 Stinger Concept.

Nissan trotted out the IDx Nismo and the IDx Freeflow for another showing in Detroit and we'll admit to being totally smitten with both cars. Again. The duo draw inspiration from the iconic Datsun 510, a lightweight, affordable rear-driver that remains a cult favorite decades after production ended.
Now, a report from our friends at AutoWeek reveals that we may, possibly, hopefully see a production IDx, provided fans make a strong enough case for it. "It's in the plan," Nissan product boss Andy Palmer told AW. According to the report, Palmer said the IDx is "into the first sage of the development process. The next stage is project validation and then looking at the business case. It's no one's intent to waste millions of the company's money, so obviously we have a good feeling about this one."
There's an evergreen debate among auto enthusiasts about whether they would prefer to have the latest and greatest car of today or a certified classic from yesteryear. What if you had to further define that, though, and the choice was between a brand new 2015 Subaru Legacy or a turbocharged Datsun 240Z with a hatch that wouldn't close? Roadkill aimed to find out that and more in one of its best videos to date.
According to the hosts, Subaru came to them, handed over some money and challenged Roadkill's project cars against its latest Legacy. The result is every bit as good (or better) than any automotive-themed show you could find on television.
Things start simple with a figure-eight race in a rodeo arena with the Subaru taking on Roadkill's 1968 Ford Ranchero, originally built for ice racing. From there the Legacy races a 1968 Dodge Charger with no windows around and off-road rally stage. Finally, the Subie goes head-to-head against the Rotsun, the aforementioned turbocharged 240Z, through an abandoned neighborhood. Plus, there's a bonus drag race challenging them all.
