DATSUN 260 Z £5,247
A lean, businesslike sports coupe developed over several years with the benefit of Datsun's successful experience in tough sporting events like the East African Safari. There are two versions, a two-seater and a 2+2 on a longer wheelbase, both equipped with the twin carburetter 2.6-litre six-cylinder engine with chaindriven overhead camshaft. The reclining front seats have built in head restraints. A front air dam and rear spoiler aid stability.
