Blues Mobile: 1974 Datsun 260Z V8

The 1974 Datsun 260Z was an evolution of the original 240Z that was first released in 1970 but it was only a one year affair before it was replaced by the 280Z in 1975.  Regardless, the relative rarity of this car didn’t stop an owner from transforming it into an unholy Chevy V8 powered beast.  Find this 1974 Datsun 260Z V8 offered for $13,500 in Bothell, WA. Tip from Rock On!

Under the hood is a small block Chevrolet V8 that pushes out an undisclosed amount of power — probably in the 300-400 hp range.  The power and torques head to a 700R4 slushbox and to a posi-traction rear end, this thing should scoot!!
