    Default Scarab Standard Equipment

    Here's a list of standard equipment, along with a photocopy of a original order from Scarab. This information is available in other posts, but, I wanted to dedicate a post to this topic.

    Standard Features:
    Balanced, blueprinted Chevy 350 (300hp) smallblock with electronic ignition
    specially designed cross-flow radiator
    high-performance water pump
    flex fan to cool the 22-quart-capacity system
    Borg Warner Super T-10 4 speed with special Hurst competition shifter linkage
    complete exhaust system with a pair of glasspack mufflers

    Koni adjustable shocks
    front and rear sway bars
    Teflon compression strut bushings
    high-performance rack and pinion mounts
    and springs by Scarab
    torque control arm, it is essentially a quarter-inch-thick piece of steel bent into a U shape, with about 3/8 of rubber laid in the bottom of the U. Scarab installed it from beneath the front differential mount, bolting front and back into holes tapping into the metal framework of the differential insulator. The torque control arm minimized the forces on the mount and on the front end of the differential itself without totally eliminating the cushioning effects of the insulator like a solid mount would.

    Disc/Drum (power) with HP pads/shoes or optional FIA 4 piston calipers
    Later cars could be had with four-wheel discs, and those with drum brakes could have optional finned cast-iron drums

    Door panels are soundproofed and covered in glove soft, hand-sewn Scottish leather
    Momo leather steering wheel
    Seats were re-padded and covered in Scottish leather and velour to match the door panels and console lid
    Deep pile carpeting

    Trans-Am front air dam, rear Trans-Am spoiler
    Twin exterior rally mirrors
    louvered hood and access panels
    Scarab logo with associated emblems
    high-speed driving lights
    All exterior Datsun badging was removed from the Scarab factory cars: the low production volume of these vehicles was highlighted by Scarab factory-specific badging that included raised Scarab lettering to replace the Datsun front fender nameplates, and Scarab Performance black-and-gold rectangular decals in the lower left corner of the windshield and the lower right corner of the rear hatch glass
    heavy gold medallions containing the Egyptian Scarab Beetle emblem

    Optional Features:
    350 SB (325 or 370hp naturally aspirated)
    Turbo (425hp)
    automatic transmission
    Limited slip differentials in R-180 or R-200

    four-wheel discs
    finned cast-iron drums

    Recaro contoured, reclining bucket seats with headrests
    12 coats of hand-rubbed lacquer

    whale tail
    reverse scoop hood with side fender louvers
    rectangular headlights
    flared fender packages
    rear window shade

    Cromodora Turbina wheels
    Campagnolo or Appliance Wheels
