Good condition “S30Z” was refreshed with an emphasis on daily driving

We interviewed the owner of a first-generation “Fairlady Z” with a crimson body that participated in the “New Year Classic Car Meeting in Kiasse Hanyu” held in Saitama Prefecture in January 2023.

Refreshing body and tuning engine

The owner of a 1974 first-generation Nissan “FAIRLADY Z” is Mr. Takamichi Yoshioka. The S30Z, which was in good condition as a stock car, was completely refreshed and tuned.

The entire body was stripped and a friend of his had it completely repainted. The engine that was installed in the car was not used due to white smoke, so he used another engine that was in stock to be serviced and tuned.

The engine was bored to 3 liters with Kameari Engine Works’ pistons. A Kameari Engine Works’ head, an OER’s racing carburetor, and an OS Giken’s distributor were also installed. The setup was not designed for racing but for street use. The transmission is a stock 71B with a reinforced OS Giken’s clutch.

The head cover has been repainted for a clean finish in anticipation of popping the hood at events.

The engine, the heart of the car, was installed by his own hands

The bodywork and engine tuning were asked for each garage, but the owner did the engine installation himself. Mr. Yoshioka likes to do the work himself and even has a chain block in his garage.

The body was finished first. It was very difficult to install the engine. Two people supported the engine to prevent damage to the body, and one person operated the chain block, so three people worked together.

The finishing touches, such as auxiliary equipment, were done by himself

After the engine was installed, he wired the gauges and installed the Star Road’s radiator himself. He also installed many of the accessories himself.

“I like the shape of the Z,” he said. “I built it with an emphasis on daily driving. And I wanted to show it to a lot of people, so I cleaned it up. The mileage so far is 2000km and I just finished breaking it in. The performance is different from the previous engine. I like to work on it, but for now, I’m happy with it”.
