Performance Parts for Nissan, Inifiniti and Datsun Cars

This 1973 240z belongs to a friend of the shop, Lou S.¬† It is a rare sight to see this Japanese-spec, Right-Hand-Drive (RHD) model with appropriate “FairladyZ” badging/lighting. The Z recently got new 3-piece, custom offset 17″ Panasport wheels. You might remember these beauties from the multiple sets ordered for the RB-240z builds.

These wheels allow the use of massive 255/40/17(Bridgestone RE050a) tires without major fender mods/flares. To take advantage of the larger footwork a complete Arizona Zcar suspension upgrade was installed.

The rear controls arms offer multiple points of adjustment. Struts were shortened and a Ground Control coilover kit with custom spring rates can be dialed in for any condition. Sway bars and new bushings throughout. The result is a car that stays absolutely planted in corners. It is almost begging for more power now. Triple Mikuni’s Lou? ūüôā

The new stance makes this “RightLady” look awesome, and the black center spokes with polished lip complements the paint really well.¬†Here is a short video clip of the car rolling on the freeway, enjoy!

Hopefully while Im in JP, I’ll be able to find me a Z in decent condition. I would love to be able to bring one back to the states.
