LT1 V8 + 6Spd: 1973 Nissan 240Z

Nissan's athletic 240Z was sold in the USA with a Datsun badge and a silky smooth inline-6 to go with its ninja-like reflexes.  For years, folks joked that Japanese cars would never be collectable, and 240Z prices hovered above scrap value, so many were (for better or worse) turned into hot rods. Today we've got one of those hot rods and it looks like it could use some freshening...but could be fun when done. Find this 1973 Nissan 240Z offered for $6500 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

From the seller:

  1. An uncut hood? I must be on crazy pills! A V8 swap that doesn't have an unsightly somethingoranother poking through a hood gouge is a welcome sight.

    Were this in the Tampa area I'd be on my way right the F now to lay eyes on it. I've been wanting another Z for a long time but allowed prices to ascend heavenward before I realized what had happened.
