The Datsun 240Z, the 260Z and finally the 280Z were successive generations of ‘Z’ two-seat coupés produced by Nissan in Japan from 1969 to 1978
Between 1975 and 1978, the 260Z coupé replaced the 240. The engine was enlarged with a longer stroke to 2.6 litres with an increase in power to 165 bhp. The chassis rails were also extended and a rear roll bar added.
In the 70s, the 240 and 260Zs were very popular and valuable cars and this attracted the interest of motor trade companies willing to modify the mass produced models into something more unique. One of these was the Samuri Motor Company. In early 70s, they built modified 240 and 260Zs for sale as turnkey models.
This 1975 Datsun 260Z Super Samuri is one of 2 made in 2+2 form. It is listed on the Super Samuri Register as SS00020 and comes with its original registration number ‘JAG 10N’. This model was once owned by James Morris, a Z authority and the author of the Definitive Super Samuri book.
This “survivor” car has been in dry storage for the last 20 years and has undergone recent recommissioning. We have now fitted a new “old stock” bumber, the brake calipers have been reconditioned and the original wheel centre caps are present. It will come with 12 months MOT at the advertised price.
