This model came in a generic Tomica box, only marked "Tomica Special Model No 18". But what a beauty on the inside:

The 240ZG was a honologation special of the 240Z produced to make it eligible for Group 4 racing. Differences between the Fairlady ZG and an export market Datsun 240Z include an extended fiberglass 'aero-dyna' nose, wider over-fenders riveted to the body, a rear spoiler, acrylic glass headlight covers and fender-mounted rear-view mirrors.

The aero nose could also be special ordered in the US - but these modified Zs are not considered genuine ZGs.
