    1978 Datsun 210 ZX w/ an F.E.D Bodykit

    I am BRAND NEW to the forum, but have been a Datsun/Nissan guy for years & years.

    I just picked up a 1978 Datsun 210 ZX w/ an F.E.D Bodykit from a seller off Craigslist in DFW....

    The car is in good shape (minus motor, tranny, drive shaft, & KEYS)

    I am looking for more information on the ZX model & the FED body kit option.... I assume it was an aftermarket kit not offered at dealerships, but I am not sure...

    I'd also be intersted in possible engine swap options and/or recommendations.

    My plan is to turn this into a full blown road race/track car that will compete in the 24 Hours of LeMons racing events...

    Thanks,

    yep.. she's a real beauty...

    oldcarjunkie.com suggested that I post on this forum in order to try and gather more info on the F.E.D bodykit option.... I personally have NEVER seen another Datsun B210 w/ this bodykit (and there's probably a reason for that)...

    This thing had been floating around Craigslist forever,.. and rather see it fall into the hands of a crusher, I decided to save it...

    ...should be a lot of fun turning this thing into a tribute to vintage 70s Japanese race cars like this one....

    Is it unusual that I'd never slap such a kit on a car... But once it was on, I'd never take it off :lol:

    Nope, still don't know a thing about it. Good luck though 8)

    It looks like the little brother of a Kaminari 280ZX.

    I will also be selling off many of the interior pieces & glass that I removed for the project.

    Let me know if you are looking for any interior pieces, seats, trim, windows, glass, etc...

    Thanks,
