Datsun 240Z(1972: HLS30)

This No.5 car was driven by R. Aaltonen and J. Todt , coming in 3rd overall in the 41st Rallye Monte-Carlo in January 1972. The Rallye Monte-Carlo is often referred to as the "snow and ice rally", and it is accepted that FR cars are difficult to control, so when it came in 3rd this car was the center of attention for everyone around the world involved with rallying. Helped too by the brilliant achievement of winning the Safari Rally in the previous year, the number of Z rally cars in Japan increased.
