ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Here's a one-of-a-kind version of a rare Nissan coupe. The Nissan 240SX was sold in the United States from the 1989 through the 1998 model years. Built on a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive platform, the 240SX is popular in the drifting community, and thus used examples are highly desirable and often sell for seemingly inflated figures.

The second-gen 240SX was introduced for the 1995 model year and packed a basic 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine making just 155 horsepower and 160 lb-ft of torque. Because these figures are a little underwhelming, and given its appeal as a drift car, the 240SX is a prime candidate for modification. In the case of this 1997 example, the original 4-cylinder has been swapped out for a 400-hp GM V8.

The seller says that while the odometer shows 102,000 miles, the mileage on this 240SX is likely much higher. The LS2 engine was plucked from a 2006 Pontiac GTO and is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. The seller says that the car runs as though it were offered from the factory with this powertrain and that the power steering, air conditioning, tachometer and speedometer function as they're supposed to. The paint has recently been redone, and the headlights are new as well. If you're interested in a drift-ready vehicle with a fire-breathing American V8 under its hood, this LS-swapped 1997 Nissan 240SX is in Chula Vista, California, with an asking price of $21,000.
