So fast, it's almost criminal.
Regarded as one of the best sports cars of the 1970s, the Nissan 240's sleek looks and criminally fast speeds made it incredibly fun to drive. One of the most popular versions of this stylish vehicle was the Fairlady ZG, which was available in Japan from 1970-1973. It featured an extended fiberglass "aero-dyna" nose, a rear spoiler, riveted wide over-fenders, acrylic glass headlight covers and fender-mounted rearview mirrors. Available exclusively in Japan, American drivers could purchase a "G-nose" kit from dealers to convert a standard 240Z into a 240ZG. This limited edition kit features new red light parts, along with new parts for the rearview mirror, antennae and police equipment. Markings for the Japanese Highway Police (Kanagawa Prefecture), 1972-1980 are also included.
