Auction Block: 1970 Nissan Fairlady Z432R

Dec 2, 2019

Category: Rides

As one of the most beautifully-designed vehicles in existence, the Nissan Fairlady Z432R is an exceedingly rare specimen. The platform’s introduction into the automotive space at the dawn of the 1970s was certainly a historic affair, and for modern enthusiasts, a well-kept example can solicit a sense of nostalgia that is, for lack of a better term, unprecedented.

Such is the case for the 1970 Z432R you see here — a race-ready model that topped Nissan’s range at release and stood as the original high-performance iteration of the S30-type Fairlady Z. As one of only 30 believed to exist, the car’s immaculate exterior boasts a perfectly-restored presence and spotlights the manufacturer’s illustrious linework, accents, and badges. But the vehicle’s track-oriented performance enhancements are its true calling card. A specialized 100-liter fuel tank used for endurance racing, a simplified interior that’s been stripped of cumbersome components, and body panels that are 0.2mm thinner than the original model, shave almost 220 pounds off of the car’s already-lightweight chassis. Of course, all of this would be for neigh without an iconic powerplant to back it up. Below the Z432R’s hood, you’ll find the same 158-horsepower, S20-type unit 2-liter DOHC that was used in the first-generation Skyline GT-R. Head over to BH’s website — where the 1970 Nissan Fairlady Z432R is slated to sell for an estimated $670,000 or more — to place your bid on January 11.

Purchase: $670,000+
