History of the car:
This Z was built by Tom Wyatt III (aka Turbo Tom) for the previous owner who is an avid sportscar collector and racer. The project began after the previous owner traded his way in to a Daytona SCCA race in Jim Fitzgerald’s Z. He won the race and received Datsun factory parts in return. On the way home from the race, he purchased this car and shipped it to Tom’s shop in Atlanta to be converted into a street sleeper and track car. The car was built specifically to run for fastest time of the day honors at the Mitty (Road Atlanta), with the project beginning around 1980 and finishing around 1984. The car did take fastest time of the day and remains unchanged since the mid-80’s and is very nostalgic.

The car is very reliable and has been driven on 250 mile road trips and has also run in many track events over the years. Anyone who knows Tom’s work knows he was way ahead of his time and how quick and tractable his cars are. I have owned this car since 2007 and the previous owner had kept it in his collection since he had Tom build it in the early 80's. It has a clear Florida title. Please contact me with any questions or if you would like to discuss anything in more detail.
