    Super mega rare. I'd pay like a million made up dollars for that.

    I think that Z40 falls somewhere between the Z28 Camaro and the new ZXX Ferrari. A rare find for anyone who has been searching for a Z40!

    They trade in a razor thin market. I've actually yet to meet anyone who is actively seeking a Z40

    Check out the pictures on the website. I love the hidden HVAC controls.

    I'd always assumed they were just a myth, some factory 1-off or 5-off and not a real vehicle.

    If you ever get a chance to talk to any of the old timers at the factory, they'll speak with reverence about the legendary "Zed-Quatro-Zero" project from the early 1970s. You won't find pictures of it in any of the Nissan/Datsun historical books because of the hush hush nature of the project. I had heard that all of them had been destroyed after the project folded, but it appears at least one left hand drive example made its way to the States.

    You gotta love those slick well done door cards and the velour seat covers as well as the tasteful HVAC panel.
