Jay Leno: SEMA ’74 Datsun Sunny Ute


Typically the high profile custom rides at the SEMA Show come from major automakers and tuning houses. But sometimes individual tuners cut through the clutter with a standout project, like this 1974 Datsun pickup modified by Dominic Le.

But Le’s Datsun Ute is unlike any you might have seen before. It has the front end from a 70’s Skyline GT-R, an 8-inch suspension drop, powered by a stroked 2.2L Nissan SR-20 turbocharged engine. It even has mirrors mounted all JDM-style way out on the front guards, some fat Toyo tyres and the original right-hand drive setup.
