Automatic Transmission..but Three Pedals?

Automatic Transmission..but Three Pedals?

1978 Datsun 280Z

This car is a study in contrasts. The wide-fendered body kit and forward-mounted side mirrors are modifications typically seen on Japanese-market tuner Zs, while the small-block Chevy and automatic transmission (?!) are clearly American.

The bodywork looks stellar, and it appears that plenty of work has gone into the suspension. A new, more appropriate drivetrain – might we suggest an RB-series twin turbo out of a Skyline – would make this the complete package.

The clutch pedal is still mounted, after all.

It’s on eBay in Texas for $38k or offer.1978 Datsun 280Z black rear quarter 1978 Datsun 280Z engine 1978 Datsun 280Z interior
