    1970 240Z

    I bought this car in 1984 when I was working in CA. I started to restore it in 1990 all the body work was done and first coat of color put on. Engine is a 280 motor with high cop pistons triple Webers headman headers Isky cam. I still have the original 240 motor rebuild on a stand. Then I moved back to CT in 1994 and never finished it(Life got in the way)Now my son is 10 so it's time to drag it out and finish this classic.

    Nice!!! I miss my Z car
    can't wait to see yours finished sounds like you have given that motor some serious mods
    have you looked to swap out the 4 speed for the later 70s 5 speed?
    keep us updated with pics as she progresses. good work Beerdart!

    The pics are from 1992 and yes I have a later 4 speed installed with a 280 rear. I have all the original parts from the car as well.

    Beer,
    Did you get some of the parts from The Wizard of Z's?
    That place was 5 miles from me & I spent tons there! My 76 280 was a 4 speed with a TALL ass 3rd & 4th gear! The 77 280 was a 5 speed But not as much grunt as the 76. Man, this thread is gonna give me the bug!
