1973 Nissan Fairlady 240Z Safari

The Fairlady Z (S30) was launched as the 2000 series in November 1969. Two years later in November 1971, the 240Z was added to the domestic lineup (it had previously only been available as a North American export model). Offering high power and superior maneuverability, the 240Z did well in overseas rallies, coming in 1st overall in the 1971 and 1973 Safari Rally. This commemorative car is the No.1 car that won in 1973, driven by S. Mehta and Lofty Drews.
