Super Samuri 240Z 1973 Vintage Men’s T-Shirt




Spike Anderson grew up as a tuner in England in the ’60s, working for Broadspeed. In 1973, he went solo, launching Race Head Services, and his new Datsun 240Z was his first customer. The cylinder head specialist worked his magic on the 151-hp straight-six, which lead to developing his own exhaust manifold. Next came a custom triple carb setup, tuned suspension, and big brakes. Now delivering 250-hp and handling like a true race car, the Z was suddenly in direct competition with Germany’s fastest coupés. Dubbing his new build ‘Big Sam,’ he took his Z to the ’74 Modsports Championship, and fought off all comers, including factory backed racers. With requests to build copies of ‘Big Sam’ piling up, Anderson started Samuri Motor Company to build more of these track ready Datsun’s, calling the resulting car’s ‘Super Samuri.’ Just under 80 units would be built over the next two years, so finding a ‘Super Samuri’ is pretty rare, and finding one for sale is almost unhead of.


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
