Currently im trying to source an early 260Z or 240Z shell. During the restoration process the fuel tank was pulled out of my 74' 260Z and we had found that the rear end has had a very hard hit and someone has attempted to fix it themselves (quite poorly).
After a soul crushing day and having a panel beater inspect it on a hoist they have advised that the chassis is too twisted to be used. Not to mention that the previous attempt to repair is very bad cosmetically and structurally. We all take this risk in buying any 40yo car, but you can only hope for the best.
I don't mind if the shell has rust as I can use the existing shell to repair or NOS panels that I have purchased also. I also have other interior/driveline/panels to transplant into the new shell.
Would kindly appreciate the help.
