New Here, 73 240Z Project

Recommended Posts

Hey all, names Joe, 28 from melbourne have a 73 i beleive 240z im pulling apart in hopes to put it back together, fair amounts of rust but ill get there eventually!

 

attached some photos, these are before i stripped the fiberglass body kit which was applied badly to begin with... and shown are my new engine and tranny, r30 5speed from a turbo r30, and an l28et out of a 280zx.

 

not sure theres much else i can say, big project, alot of work ahead and i hope i can ask alot of questions here :)

 

thanks!

Ahh yes I recall this car, it was in Tasmania with a V8 in it and some horrid looking rear light modification. Good luck with it.

Welcome Joe.

 

 and shown are my new engine and tranny, r30 5speed from a turbo r30, and an l28et out of a 280zx.

That's actually a wide ratio, series 2 Bluebird gearbox.
 

FWIW an R30 Skyline gearbox is a 'short box' & won't fit a in a Z.

What size are the rims on it? They match the ones on my race car

Also look like my v4s similar dish too...

These ones 16"?

Maybe 16x 9 or 16 x10s with 16x8 up front? Just a guess, as mine are 9 rear with 7" fronts.

I too would be interested to know.
