1971 Datsun 240Z Restomod – LS1 5.7L V8

We love a restomod and this is up there with the best of them. Be sure to check out the video below…

From the seller: “Sourced and imported by myself from the USA 3-4 years ago from an established old hand on the ‘HybridZ’ forum who owned the car for ~20 years, much of which were with this swapped power-train. Family life had taken over and I had the opportunity to buy. After an incredibly stressful, drawn-out & expensive process importing the car into the U.K. I have spent the last few years with the car as a rolling restoration turning it into what you see now – Where essentially every component of the car has been significantly upgraded and modernised to form my idea of the perfect sports car; with classic car looks, sensations & involvement, but with modern performance, robustness & reliability.

I have genuinely never experienced a car get such universal praise & attention from such a broad demographic of people, which holds its own irrespective of the surrounding environment & company. Whether you are in the posh car park at Goodwood Revival, in a McDonalds drive-through, or in the outside lane of the M5 – People will be clambering to take photographs or give a thumbs-up.”

The rest of the eBay listing is lengthy, detailed and, quite frankly, superb. Be warned; if you read it, you may find your cursor hovering over the ‘make Offer’ button!
