I know the seller, he's on here also but doesn't post much and asked for some selling help.

The Story:
I bought it from the original owner's best friend in 2000. The car had 78k some original miles on it. It was a L24 (2.4 inline six) with a four speed transmission. It had all sorts of crazy built in late 70's radar detectors, with detectors in both front and rear. It came with an extra wheel and literally every single receipt, note, service, window sticker, etc. He had already disconnected all the emissions stuff (airpump) and had switched the 73 emissions carbs to Weber DGVs.

In 2003, I did all of the rebuild stuff. But, I was busy in college so it just stayed parked in my parentís garage (in Indiana). I graduated college and left the car parked in there garage from May 2005 through May 2008. The car was never started or moved during that time.
In May 2008, I finally decided to bring it to Minneapolis. I had the car taken to the best import shop in Fort Wayne, Indiana. They dumped the old gas, put new plugs, new battery, new oil, etc in the car. It started on the first push of the start button. They checked the carbs and they were still fully synched. I then drove the car 11 hours straight, from Indiana back to Minnesota.

Once here, I drove it around for awhile, took it to a Z show, but for the most part itís been sitting in my garage. I havenít driven it in over a month. So itís time to let it go.

The Engine:

Swapped dipped/rebuilt L28 block with flattop pistons (engine out of 280Z)
ARP rodbolts
E88 head from a 240Z, dipped, rebuilt
Crane Uni-lite distributor (getís rid of the points system)
Crane Hi-6 ignition box
Crane ignition coil
Taylor spark plug wires
Motorsports Auto (MSA) 6-3-2-1 Header/wrapped/temp coated
MSA full 2.5in exhaust
Rebuilt (Arizona Z car) dual SU carbs with K&N filters mounted over airhorns
Holley Redline fuel pump
NISMO turbo oil pump

Driveline:
Swapped late model 5sp transmission
3.43 rearend was replaced with a 3.90 rearend

The Suspension:

Eibach lowering springs
Tokico struts/shocks
Energy Suspension urethane bushings
MSA front and rear sway bars
MSA front strut tower bar
Various new OEM suspension components
H&R spacers and extended studs

The Brakes:
Hawk Metallic brake pads
New rotors
Rebuilt brake drums
Stainless brake lines
High boiling point fluid

Interior:
Dual Corbeau Forza seats, with custom made slide rail adapters
Corbeau four-point harnesses
Custom harness bar
CD player/new speakers
New carpet and mats (2008)
Push button start/toggle switches for ignition and fuel
MSA d-shaped wheel
Monster Tach in oem tach location/shift light on steering column (used as redline indicator)
Original OEM dash, with absolutely no cracks, I have been offered upwards of $500 for my dash alone at various Z events

Wheels:
Two piece Watanabe RS8, staggered, 16x8 and 16x7
Stripped, powdered in 2008
Tires (have 300 miles on them), Dunlop Direzza DZ101
I have over $2,000 in the wheels/tires/spacers
Also included, original dealer installed slotted mags with tires

Body:
MSA front airdam/spoiler
Engine bay and wheel wells were all stripped to bare and then treated with POR-15 rust inhibitor
Frame rails and battery box (most common) show absolutely no rust, will provide before/after pictures
New floor pan on driverís side
All glass is perfect



Issues:
Odometer reads 88,000 miles, when I switched the rearend, the odometer/transmission plastic gear thingy didnít match. Based on the trips I have taken, I can safely say that the car has had less than 3k miles put on it in the last five years.

People will follow you home, harass you at the gas station, etc
Paint, the original owner had it repainted 16 years ago, paint is probably a 7.5/10

Various nicks in the paint

Body is extremely solid, I notice two areas that have been repaired during the painting, one spot in the wheel well and the fender arch. I would still give the body a 9/10 (If I were to completely restore/paint I would patch/replace quarter panel)

Itís loud

I've been looking for a classic Z as a weekender but this one is too well done for me. That 2.8 is just to pretty to swap out for a SR20DET.

Good luck to your friend on the sale.
