The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Classic Car Overview

Japanese classics are really coming into their own as collectors are heating up the market. So if youre looking for an example that is worthy of awards and is extra fun to drive to the shows, then this 1973 Datsun 240Z is the right fit. With a beautifully restored body, more power out of the original motor, and an upgraded five-speed manual transmission, this is the best of everything. This example was restored to be particularly striking. The white paint was professionally applied during the restoration to have a huge gloss and shine. So the moment the sunlight hits this one, it radiates while also showcasing all of the best features. This includes the long hood, sloping rear deck, and rear fenders that had a powerful muscle car-like kick-up. Its all of this attraction why the 240Z wrote the first chapter in Japanese sports cars being accepted by the American public. And as you dig deeper, you can see why this example deserves the extra scrutiny. All the panels have a crisp feeling that shows good care. The grille, taut rubber trim, and blacked-out rear panel make for an attractive contrast to the white. And the 15-inch Panasport style wheels are great for distinction while still looking vintage. The original Z-car was made for two, and this one sports inviting black buckets inside a nicely presented interior. In true Japanese fashion, they took what was already great about contemporary sports cars and enhanced it with user-friendly design. As a result, the cockpit talks directly to the driver with no interference from quirky ergonomics or heavy control actions. Instead, the speedo and tach are set into twin round pods with a trio of auxiliary dials set up high on the dash. The restoration focused this as a drivers machine, and so the steering wheel was upgraded to a Momo Prototipo sports unit with a Datsun horn cap brightly in the center. Have you counted the gears on this one yet? So while you might have an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, this total package signals to your senses that your favorite soundtrack really starts under the hood. The engine bay shows off more great signs of investment as the bright long cover draws your attention to the original 2.4-liter inline six-cylinder. This exceptionally tidy setup is great to show off, and it gives you a clear view of the upgraded triple Weber 40DCOE side-draft carbs. Not only do these dominate the engine bay, but they also inject some serious extra power in this package. Plus, it has all the right supporting components like an MSD ignition, Optima red top battery, and an aluminum radiator/dual electric fans. Theres even a header package with stainless steel exhaust to add even more power and give this Z-car a great rumbling note. And best of all, you get to take full control of this machine with an upgrade to a five-speed manual transmission. When you get this out on the road, youll instantly feel the excitement of a European-level sports car that comes with easy everyday livability. Thats thanks to a lively fully independent suspension, front disc brakes, and added lowering springs. This is the cut-above Japanese classic for someone who loves to drive and be memorable everywhere. If thats you, call today!
