    Nissan 240sx based kits?

    I was wondering.. does anyone know of any 240sx based kits?

    I was comparing the measurments to see if it was close to have classic cars:

    '89-'93 240sx

    Wheelbase 2474 mm (97.4 in)
    Length 4521 mm (178 in)
    Width 1689 mm (66.5 in)
    Height 1290 mm (50.8 in)
    Curb weight 1224 kg (2699 lb)

    1968 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona

    Wheelbase 2400 mm 94.5 in
    Length 4343 mm 171 in
    Width 1727 mm 68 in
    Height 1156 mm 45.5 in
    Curb weight 1197 kg 2639 lb

    I know one of the Body kit makers... Erebuni Corperation, use to make a type of conversion.. but it has been discontinued.

    Has anyone thought of using the 240sx as a base?

    Daytona:


    240sx (Fastback)


    I guess the biggest problems are the distances from the A pillar to the front wheel and the rear wheel to the trailing edge of the door

    There is a SLR and some other fancy body conversions like Skyline and one strange G25 Frontend. But I never saw a ferrari replica based on the 240sx. It is born for drifting

    Drifting...

    too many nice 240sx's are getting screwed up by the so called "drifters"...



    The SLR has the same long distance between the A pillar and the front wheel...

    Whoa.. interesting..

    I canceled my subscription to Drift Tengoku about 3 years ago... now I get Nostalgic Hero...

    I've been looking for exotic cars with a close wheel base to the 240sx...

    Maybe a 575?

    Here a quick comparision, good match ???

    Ferrari 575 (2002) Nissan 240 (1990)
    ---------- ----------
    Type: 2S FHC 2+2 FHC * Fix Head Coupe
    Wheelbase: 2500 mm 2474 mm
    Front Track: 1632 mm 1460 mm
    Rear Track: 1586 mm 1460 mm
    Overall length: 4550 mm 4520 mm
    Overall width: 1935 mm 1690 mm
    Overall height: 1277 mm 1290 mm
    Wheelbase ratio: 1.82 1.83

    Drive: RWD RWD


    Front/Rear track & Width can be easily rectified by the use of wheelspacers?

    I did a quick eyeball of a 2003 SLR Mc against the Nissan 240 and they are way more off compared to 575 against 240.
