1 of just 20 260Z Super Samuri's and just 1 of 2 made in 2+2 form;
featured on the front cover of one of the Samuri books; No. SS00020 on the
Samuri register; exciting opportunity with scope to recommission; clean MOT
Dating from March 1975, this earlier Datsun 260Z is a 2+2 variant, and some 30cm longer in wheel base than the 2-seat version permitting usable rear seats yet manages to maintain much of the style, grace and sporting prowess of the its 2-seat sibling.
Finished in red and silver this car is rather special, being 1 of the 20 260Z’s given the Super Samuri (yes we have spelled that correctly) treatment by the legend that is Spike Anderson and, one of just two 2+2 260Z to get the treatment making it very rare and special indeed.
The car and its reg JAG10N is relatively well known in 260/Samuri circles and features on the cover of one of the various books about Samuri’s and is also No. SS00020 on the Samuri register. There were only 77 Super Samuri’s built across both the 240 and 260Z so these are rare cars with no more being built. A link to the register is here - http://www.samuri.eu/index_files/Page1566.htm and a link to the history behind the legend of Spike Anderson and the company is here - http://www.samuri.eu/index_files/SamuriProjects.htm for anyone interested.
The car has come out of a period in storage and while it was MOT’d without advisory in September 2022, the car would benefit from some mechanical fettling as it didn’t appear to be running on all six when we moved it around but was low on fuel.
The body/paint work also shows signs of age and previous work and would also likely benefit from a proper, quality repaint to get the car looking its best – and then, what a car it would be.
We are not aware of exactly what modifications have been carried out by Samuri, the car is still recorded as being 2565cc, it wasn’t uncommon for Samuri to increase their capacity or what other enhancements have been carried out.
The history file includes an old style V5, 2nd older style V5 and the current clean MOT valid until September 2023.
These Super Samuri cars are rare and desirable with some 240Z SS versions commanding eye-watering premiums – they aren’t building any more.
