Tamiya - 1/12 Nissan Fairlady 240ZG Street-Custom
Dressed to Impress
Released in October 1969, the Nissan Fairlady Z went on to become a world-renowned high performance sports car. A stylish long nose, short deck body was married with a 2-liter inline-6 engine and cushioned by 4-wheel independent strut suspension. The 240Z was an export version with 2.4-liter engine that was also released for the Japanese market in November 1971 on the back of excellent race performance. The top-grade variant of the car was the 240ZG, whose form was accented with the long 'G nose' and Frp over fenders, and a plethora of tune-up parts was available to those faithful owners who wanted to tweak its performance and stamp their individuality on this legendary car.
