Classic Car Overview

Gateway Classic Cars is proud to list this drag modified a1978 Datsun 280z. The Z car is world famous for its curve eating handling and back road prowess. But Its equally renown as a light weight, quarter mile missile, when a monster motor is stuffed between the fenders. This Datsun 280Z subscribes to the latter. From the widebody front and rear fenders, the 911 style whale tale and the fat wide wheels and nose down rake; this 280Z is poised to light up the timing lights at the local drag strip! No street machine is worth a damn without a motor capable of doing the job. This 280Z packs a stroker V8 that rises beyond the challenge. At 383cubic inches and 550+hp, this Z will likely make mincemeat of anyone foolish enough to test it. Backed by a built Turbo 350 transmission, Ford 9 with Mosey axles being spun by a 4:56 gear intense acceleration is an understatement. This thing MOVES. As anyone experienced in fast cars knows, going fast is only half the trick. In case of the worst, you must also be safe. A roll cage with quick release side bars was fitted to the chassis as well as a fuel cell. But dont despair. This car is road legal. If you want to just scare yourself (or a friend) with an occasional quick stab of the throttle, this car can do it on and away from the track. This 78 280Z is a real street fighter!
