Age: 1974 Transmission: Manual Engine size: 2600 cc Among Datsun enthusiasts, there is no bigger name than that of Spike Anderson, legendary creator of ‘Samuri Conversions’. During the 1970s, his modified Datsun 240 and 260Zs found fame on both the roads and tracks around Britain, the most notable of which was ‘Big Sam’ 240Z, which took Win Percy to the British Modsports title. These track derived mods were translated successfully onto the road cars, where more power, more noise, uprated suspension, and dramatic red and gold paintwork made for very fast but comfortable Grand Touring cars. Extremely rare beasts these days, GED 220N is one of only two 2+2 Datsun 260Z Samuris ever made. Subject to a recent comprehensive restoration by marque specialists Z-Farm, GED 220N is finished in correct Nissan 110 Red with Rootes Tango Bronze, and is equipped with a gas flowed head, fast road cam, triple Weber carburettors, and a sports manifold and exhaust system. It is also recognised on the Samuri Register. With a superb exhaust note, fantastic handling, and iconic lines, this beautifully restored Samuri will make for some very enjoyable trips to the pub with the family!
Manufactured in Japan in 1973 this is an original UK RHD car first registered in August 1974 and is one of just a handful of surviving cars converted to Samuri specification. This particular car was actually owned and converted early in its life by Kevin Irons himself, a former partner of Spike Anderson at Samuri Conversions at Silverstone. The car is finished in the correct colours of Nissan 110 red and Rootes Tango bronze metallic and has recently had the front and rear ‘Samuri’ script and white pin striping re-painted professionally by hand to ensure the vehicle retains the perfect period look. Of course the vehicle has the usual Samuri additions which include a modified engine with a gas flowed cylinder head ,up-rated stage 2 fast road camshaft, triple Weber 40 DCOE carburetors, sports manifold and exhaust system Also upgrades such as four piston Wilwood Superlite front brakes and coil over suspension, along with a Mishimoto alloy radiator and S14a gearbox conversion make this car drive and handle superbly, more than capable of keeping up with modern traffic and surprising many with its performance. The body work is in excellent order with some slight patina adding to the cars fantastic authenticity and the car’s fuel tank was replaced in 2014. All clocks and gauges are in perfect working order and whilst it cannot be guaranteed to be correct, the speedometer reads just over 27,000 miles with MOT’s back to the early 90’s showing each annual mileage. The interior is in excellent original condition with the correct period Hitachi radio fitted and the addition of an extremely rare genuine Nissan Nismo 10th anniversary steering wheel sourced directly from Japan which complements the sporty handling of the car with its slightly reduced diameter. Also fitted are rare painted and polished JDM Enkei 15 x 8 Alloy wheels adding to the period feel of the vehicle. Tyre’s are as new. The car has been owned and improved by myself over several years, including a full engine overhaul 2 years ago by a professional specialist in historic road and rally cars to keep the car in peak condition. When completed this was rolling road tested showing over 200bhp so it goes as well as it sounds! Currently with an agreed insurance value of £55,000 today the car comes with much recent history and as a 1973 build is eligible for historic road fund licence. The car completed a trip to the Le Mans Classic in July and covered over 1,000 miles without a hitch. I would ask that genuinely interested buyers contact me on 07914 380833 to arrange a mutually convenient time to view the car.

(SOLD) This beautiful, unmolested vehicle is in excellent, original condition and would be a great addition to any Datsun enthusiast collection. It was well maintained, garage kept and is a solid, California car with only 2 owners. The paint and interior is all original and in very good condition. The brakes and suspension have been gone through and included new shocks, springs, sway bars and strut tower braces. The car received a major tune up and service, the carburetors were rebuilt and the cooling system has been serviced. The engine is in excellent condition and would serve well as a daily driver.
(SOLD) This Datsun Fairlady is a very original and complete classic, which makes it rare & collectable. The previous owner recently installed a brand new top and windshield, and has serviced and maintained the vehicle regularly. This Fairlady runs and drives well, and is a great candidate to improve the cosmetics as you go. The car is acceptable as a Driver “as is”; if you want to take it to a higher level, we recommend taking out the small dents that are easy to remove, repainting the car, and re-chroming the brite work. Some new carpeting and panel replacement would make the car really shine. This Datsun would make a great car if you are just starting a collection, or adding to your existing. It is economical to drive, and will continue to appreciate in value over time. *Classic Showcase has not performed any maintenance or any other automotive service to this vehicle.
In the late 1960s, the Japanese auto industry had a new sense of confidence as they finally found their stride with uniquely designed and meticulously engineered cars. Earlier in the decade, American buyers saw Japanese cars as novelties or oddballs, cars to be avoided especially for those who still had WWII fresh in their mind. The earliest Japanese sports cars borrowed heavily from their two-wheeled counterparts, particularly Honda with its bike-engined S600 coupe and roadsters. Nissan-Datsun took a slightly different approach in the middle of the 1960s, with their take on the traditional British sports car. The Datsun 1600 and 2000 Fairlady roadsters were aimed squarely at the MGB, Triumph TR4 and Sunbeam Alpine. Datsun held the upper hand thanks to its 5-speed gearbox and beautiful 135hp overhead-cam engine. The British cars felt positively agricultural in comparison. Combined with the mechanically similar 510 sedan, Datusn enjoyed moderate success in the US market, demonstrating the Japanese could build a very capable competitor to the best of the British roadsters. Enthusiasts and club racers knew the Datsun was the superior car, though Japanese cars still struggled against the attitudes in the US. When the Fairlady 2000 was due for replacement, Datsun decided to go all out and design a sports car specifically for the critical North American market. The basic formula for the new 240Z sports car drew inspiration from Jaguar’s E-Type. The elegant 2-seat coupe body was designed in-house by Yoshihiko Matsuo at the Nissan sports car studio. A 2.4 liter, overhead-cam inline-six was chosen along with four wheel independent suspension and front disc brakes. The 240Z was very pretty, could punch above its weight in terms of performance, and had a build quality unseen in its British rivals. Yutaka Katayama (known to loyal Z-car fans as “Mr. K”) was the driving force responsible for marketing the Z in the North American market. His effort to promote 240Z paid dividends for the Japanese industry as a whole, whole he developed a cult following for his sports car, Nissan, Toyota and Honda all benefitted from a newfound respect and admiration for the quality of Japanese cars. In 1997, with the 300ZX nearing the end of production and the 350Z still several years off, Nissan sought to cash in on the still-vibrant community of 240Z enthusiasts. They bought a handful of solid, original 1970 and 1971 240Zs and handed them over one of three carefully selected restoration shops to be fully restored from the ground up, using as many factory parts as possible. The restored cars were then sold “new” in select Nissan dealers around the country. It was a brilliant move for Nissan, as they reignited the passion for these wonderful cars and helped to boost the value and interest in all other 240Zs. Our featured 1971 Datsun 240Z is one of the finest examples we’ve ever encountered. This well-documented California car has covered just 200 miles since a four-year, obsessively detailed nut and bolt restoration by Les Cannaday’s Classic Datsun Motorsport, one of those select shops chosen by Nissan to restore their own cars. While this car is not one of Nissan’s dealer cars, it is no less spectacularly restored to exacting standards by a respected marque expert. Presented in its original color of Orange (code 918) over black interior, it is a stunning and thoroughly correct 240Z. The body fit and finish are superlative, all trim is correct and in as-new condition and the car rides on a set of classic slotted alloy wheels. The paint is beautifully laid down and it even wears a set of the seldom seen optional black stripes on the rockers, a wonderful period touch that is often overlooked in lesser restorations. The black interior is upholstered in factory correct materials and executed beautifully. Likewise, the engine bay and undercarriage are fully detailed with correct decals, tags, braided hoses, clamps and gold-cadmium plated hardware. Rarely do we see 240Zs restored to such a level of excellence and with such meticulous attention to detail. Even the owner’s manual is original to this car, down to the matching warranty card. The trunk is properly detailed as well with a full original tool kit including the original wheel chock. The beloved Mr. K, who passed away in 2015 at 105 years old, put his mark of approval on this restoration, in the form of his signature on the glovebox. This is a concours-quality car that also happens to be a fabulous thing to drive; we have tested it on some of our favorite local roads and are happy to report it is simply a joy. Clearly this was a cherished car from day one. As a basis for restoration, this was a very solid, very original and sound example with long-term California history, sold new by Varsity Datsun of Davis, CA. It was never rotted or crashed and the results of the restoration attest to that fact. For show or to drive, one would be hard pressed to find a better 240Z available today. .
