Phil Koen's 240Z

More than 40 years after he bought it, it was finally time to restore the 1971 240Z. Phil searched for a top-quality restorer in Southern California where Datsun (now Nissan) was so popular, as well as in the Bay Area — with no luck. Then, he remembered that his long-time acquaintance, Ralph Borelli of Borelli Motor Sports, did restorations.

“It’s an absolutely amazing restoration,” Phil stated. “It really hums. It sounds great, and has all the acceleration that I remember. I’m very pleased with the work Borelli Motor Sports did.
