71 Datsun 240Z Race Car SCCA/Vintage/Vscda/SVRA/IT

This car is eligible for SCCA ITS and other sanctioned competition, and can perform as a very reliable car to gain your SCCA or other sanctioning body’s competition license. It is competitive in SCCA club Regional’s, or Enduro’s such as the Charge of the Lights Brigade etc, (with its Hella 3000 night lights and 22 gallon fuel cell, adjustable seating and driver refresh system). You could also convert the car to E-Production in steps as you go, if you would choose National competition in that popular class. (Note that a Z car was on the pole last year at Road America’s SCCA National Runoff’s!) Of equal or even greater interest could be Vintage Racing through SVRA, VSCDA and other vintage organizations that welcome the Z cars, especially with this car’s 19 year actual, verifiable race history. While it’s not in full C/P trim, you can race with the Vintage crowd right away while you may choose to put together a triple Weber engine and/or other period configurations, a true bargain to enter the Vintage arena. And of course there are other great organizations such as NASA, Midwest Council, SCCA Solo, even the Chump Car Enduro’s where this car can run. Just aim where you want to go race!! (I’d write you a $500 receipt of you wanted to go Lemon’s racing, but you’d have to convince the Judges about that…)

Although spare parts to race these Z cars are still widely available I am selling the car with a great spares package including a set of brand new Hoosier Radial race tires, a set of low cycle Hoosier mounted’s, mounted Dirt Stocker rains, numerous good condition test-and-tune Hoosier Radials, a rebuildable/E88 engine, tranny’s, Diff, Brake drums, drive/half shafts, etc.. All the major items you could need as you take the machine to competition. Guaranteed that you could leave from my shop and go straight to the race track for a competition weekend! This car is Turnkey.

The Z cars are a challenge to drive, I have enjoyed racing these machines for many years now and the sound and torque of the 2.4L straight 6 is fantastic, and combined with the well balanced rear wheel drive chassis, is a thrill to drive. The car when setup for racing, requires and brings out all your racing skills. If you master the Z car drive, you will be able to race anything.

to see pictures and a current VIDEO walk-around of this car, including engine run.

Priced at $11,500 for the complete package. The car is located near Kalamazoo, Michigan. Please contact:

Mine looks dirty after just getting it to the track today and it was painted last weekend!

If she wasn't on blocks, she'd be the queen of the road, she'd be the princess of asphalt if her engine weren't blowed....
