I started doing this coupe in late June, It just sort of fell into my lap as an empty shell lol.


started as this....

and a few months later is looking a little better....

for now rockin a fresh L20B, close ratio dogleg 5 speed, Z SU's on a custom cast 4 bolt manifold,
smoothed and coated early L16 exhaust mani, 280zx front struts on coils, corbeau seats,
Nardi wood grain, DZ push button start, and a few factory goodies (factory tach, ect)


kind of a lot to catch up on a full build in one post lol so heres the full build from the start here:
http://community.ratsun.net/topic/44555 ... 710-coupe/

gathering parts for an empty shell with a 710 coupe is a PITA lol
theres very little that will interchange from the sedans or wagons.
and coupes are few and far between...
