Kanto Seiki and the S30-series Z

Recommended Posts

Many of us will recognise the name and logo of Nissan-affiliate gauge and instrument makers KANTO SEIKI and their 'KS' trademark as they made most of the gauges in the S30-series Z, and a few other parts besides.

Perhaps less well known may be the fact that KS had their own line of sporty aftermarket gauges and instruments, which they sold independently to owners who wanted to upgrade their cars for more sporting use. 

One of my current (long-running and sloooow...) project cars will have a 'Rally' theme, and will incorporate a few Kanto Seiki aftermarket parts that I have accumulated over the years. I have two of the KS 'Trip Counter' kits (one standard, one 'deluxe') and one of the rare 'Twin Counter' rally odometers (basically a crib of the Swedish-made Halda 'Twin Master'). 

There was some nice Z-related content in KS's period literature, and KS stickers on some of Nissan's Works rally cars:
