1974 Datsun Sunny Truck with a SR20DET

Dominic Le and his 1974 Datsun Sunny truck stopped by Jay Leno’s Garage recently. Dominic built the truck with a friend in their free time over the course of two months. The truck runs a SR20DET from a Nissan S14 that has been stroked to 2.2 L. The engine produced 450+ horsepower on E85 fuel but now runs a more conservative tune for 91 octane and produces around 350 horsepower. Which is plenty of power for a vehicle only weighing slightly over 1,800 lbs. Behind the engine sits the factory S14 five-speed transmission. The modification that stands out the most to the observer is the classic Skyline front end. This was accomplished using a C10 Skyline conversion kit from 09 Racing in Japan.

  1. 100% can’t afford this on military salary sadly but looking to get something and start the process slowly but surely to have my dream vehicle.
    Does anyone know or recommend where to find one reasonably priced I’m not very wealthy. :/ also good sites or company that make the parts to do the front end conversations.
    Thanks. Love your build btw lucky fella to have that.
