This is what happens when a skilled builder lavishes all his attention on a near-forgotten 1972 Datsun 240Z. It’s an absolutely gorgeous custom Z powered by a mean, lean, 2.0-liter turbocharged Nissan four with more than 350 horsepower. And the car is for sale. Price? Only $125,000.
The car began life as a fairly clean 1972 240 Z in the same shade of shocking ’70s green. Then master builder, fabricator, refinisher, and all-around awesome guy Jared Cullop of Knoxville, Tennessee, decided to turn it into the greatest Z-car ever.
He stripped it down to its bare bones, meticulously refinished the body to beyond-1972 factory quality, fabricated custom suspension bits, and dropped a built SR20DET Nissan mill into the engine bay.
It’s an amazing build with thousands of man-hours invested. The car features a custom stainless exhaust system, full coilover suspension, and one bad-ass built engine with a stonking-great turbo attached.
The car is absolutely perfect. And for sale. Cullop originally posted the car on teamspeed.com forums for a $125,000. Reasonable, I think, for what is essentially the ultimate 240Z. Now the car’s on eBay, current bidding at about $55,000 with the reserve unmet. What do you think? Worth the scratch? If you were swimming in cash, would it be on your wish list?
