Hello! I have a 1973 Datsun 240z that I plan on putting an 800hp 2JZ in but obviously need to work on some chassis strengthening before I rip the thing apart with that much power. Here is a short list of items I found posted by the late John Coffey himself for a streetable car: 1. Seam Weld (every sheet metal seam overlap.) 2. Bad Dog Subframe Connectors 3. Weld-In Roll Bar. 4. Welded In Rear STB. 5. Triangulated Front STB. 6. Radiator Core Support Reinforcement. 7. Transverse Link Bracing Reinforcement. 8. RT Diff Mount. 9. Tubular Seat Mounts. 10. Box Upper Frame Horns to Firewall/Cowl. 11. Reinforce Pedal Box/Brake MC Mount. 12. Reinforce Front ARB Mount. 13. Reinforce Front Strut Tower to Frame Rail Junction. I plan on doing some competitive drag racing, roll racing, track days, and driving the car around just about everywhere! I have a very clean paint job on the car and the body is nearly perfect, so repainting the car/pulling out glass isn't really something I'd like to do. However, I think pulling everything else off the car and putting it on a rotisserie would make the seam welding much easier as well as the frame rails and such and I can live with that. I would LOVE to hear from you guys that have done this and if you were able to preserve the paint and glass on the car. This is a pretty big undertaking so I'd like to prepare myself as much as possible before jumping into this huge project.

This SCCA-ITS prepared 1970 240Z has been sitting in a climate-controlled basement for several years. I stumbled across it through a friend of a friend. The previous owner raced it in the SCCA, ITS class in the late 90’s - 2000’s. He put a bunch of money and time into a new motor, prepared the car, ran one event and parked it. Life got in the way. I bought it with the intention of racing it but my wife has other ideas… Even though the car has been sitting for a while it was very easy to start. I put fresh gas in the tank, cleaned the float-bowls, put a battery in it, and turned it on. The fuel pump primed the system, I pushed the button and vroom! The previous owner is a pilot so the car was only ever run on aviation fuel, I think that’s why it was so easy to start. The aviation fuel is very clean and leaves little residue so the lines, carbs and tank are clean. I don’t know as many details as I should about the motor specs but what I do know is it purrs like a kitten. Everything that has been done to modify the motor was done to the very limits of the ITS class but it was legal at the time when he parked it. I have the old SCCA logbooks. When the car was built, it was taken down to the shell and acid dipped. They put a cage in it, primed and painted inside, outside and under. There are some minor repairs and welds done at the time the race car was built. Everything is straight and flat under the car. All of the hoses and fittings are -10 and -6 “Aeroquip” brand AN fittings. Obviously there are some bumps and bruises on the car because it is after all a racecar. - 1970 240Z vin # HLS30-02347 - Roll cage with NASCAR bar on the driver’s side - Aluminum seat - Detachable steering wheel - 3 welded differentials each with a different gear ratio (336,???,???) - Spare 4 speed trans - Battery kill switch - Rebuilt SU round tops - 3 into 2 coated header - Aircraft style oil cooler, adapter, and remote filter, -10 Aeroquip fittings and lines - Wide body oil pan - Fuel Cell, Holley “Red” fuel pump and regulator, Fram HPG-1 remote filter, -6 Aeroquip - Brake ducts to calipers and rotors - Ballast box with lead ballast installed. - Spare half shafts and drive shaft, bearings, u-joints, fasteners, etc. - Lots of extra parts and pieces; electrical, gaskets, mounts, brakes, engine parts, transmission parts… - Spare good motor that was run before they built the one in it, very clean, fully assembled ready to go - 2 sets of “Panasport” 14” wheels - E46 intake - E88 intake - Pit crew headset, and driver’s helmet mounted earpiece with quick connect fittings, Motorola brand I’m asking $6,000 as is, no delivery. The car runs and drives great and is a good car for someone who is getting into SCCA racing or just doing HPDE’s. I own a 1975 280Z and it is a blast! on the track. You can text, email or call me with questions and I will answer them to the best of my knowledge. See the link below for lots of pics, I also attached a video of it. http://s1376.photobucket.com/user/roscosremodeling/library/
