In response to some questions I've received:

The subframe has been reinforced to withstand the torque of the larger V8 engine.

The front brakes have been modified with 4 pot calipers and vented rotors.

The rear end is a limited slip differential and the ratio is more likely to be 3:90 than 3:73

The seals and such are such that I have never experienced a lot of exhaust in the cabin.

The interior is such that one can have a normal conversation in the car.   From a noise standpoint. it is quite comfortable.

The tachometer is a Mallory and has adjustable shift light and rev limiter (it fits in the stock location as depicted)

The suspension is fitted with heavier duty springs. sway bar. nbsp;and aftermarket struts.

 

 

 

 

 

This is a stunning example that gets lots of attention wherever it goes. So many people can relate to this iconic vehicle and I am constantly told by auto enthusiasts that this is the nicest one they have ever seen.

I purchased it in March of 2012 from a reputable dealer in Tampa FL (Lash Auto Sales). I have invested in many enhancements since purchasing with the intent to keep the vehicle for many years. However. I am now faced with a re-location and will not have anywhere to store the car indoors. The car runs and drives great. It's a blast and a kick in the pants. It sounds awesome and it's very revvy.

**I Paid $13. 00 for this car on a competitive ebay auction one year ago and have invested $5. 00.   I have only driven the vehicle about 1. 00 miles and must sacrifice this investment as I am moving and do not have garage space for the vehicle.   MY LOSS IS YOUR GAIN**

When I purchased this vehicle. it was not equipped with air conditioning. I worked with Weber Motorsports to have a Vintage Air heating & air conditioning unit installed. It is fully modern and uses R134a refrigerant. In order to make it work. it was necessary to upgrade EVERYTHING in front of the block. I went with the black anodized Front Runner serpentine belt system which keeps everything nice and compact and adds the high flow water pump & high output alternator. This was a $5. 00 upgrade but well worth it for a black on black car with two small windows.

This vehicle is being sold as is where is. It's an older vehicle and has some minor imperfections.

I love this car and hate to see it go - please be a caring Z car enthusiast!
