$7400 OBO. Over $10,000 Invested! Deal of a lifetime!

old price was $7400, now asking $6900!

Why so cheap? Needs transmission work. Current one is leaking (could be from t.v. cable; level checker; or cooler lines) and I have not tuned the kickdown cable. Brake and clutch pedal+brackets also with the car if you go manual. Easy swap to do, I don't have the time to do it! 47 hour/week schedule prevents me from anything. Car starts, and runs as is! Trans. will shift and drive fine, will not downshift at WOT.

College student in need of money, help a guy out! I don't even take this beast out because I'm scared it might get a dent.

Located in Houston, Tx

Great basis for a street, weekend, or all out dragster!

Thank you for your time,

Steven M.

You can e-mail or call me directly on my cell phone, please leave a message if I am unable to answer the phone. I prefer to talk on the phone.

Only two things I dont like about it is sorry, but you know opinions, there like "A" holes everyone has them.

Mine is the cowl hood look on a Z just doesnt really fit, me personally I never did like them at all.

Second should have went with a 5speed.

Besides that a truely gorgeous conversion.

Looking for $6500.

I drove her today and she drove fine. The tranny just feels like that leak is not making it shift so well. It is not leaking now, but once you fill up the tranny to a certain point, it then leaks. there is currently fluid in there though.

Actually sir, I've been around and have been doing the right thing; by searching before I ask, therefore my post count is low. If you feel like attacking me, leave it to the PM's or e-mail. If I was a Z guru, or had alot of questions that have never been answered I'd have a higher post count. But now, i have a 47hr./week school schedule and am working on getting my scholarships either wise I won't be going to school. I need something that will get me to point A to point B without worrying if my car is going to get scratched or dented. This is too nice of a car for a 17 year old to have, which is what I am. Maybe when I'm out of college and have time to build a car like I want to and trailer it everywhere...


Is that your Z in my avitar?


If it is, I hope you dont mind me using it, I found it on Kazaa!



Yes, that was it with the old motor, use to run a 9.90 on open diff. and 250 shot.

Thanks for the comments?

What is an open diff? Is that one drive wheel or LSD? What does the car run now with the different motor? I would love to have V-8 Z, but my husband gets PO'd at the very mention of "Why didn't you put a V-8 in your Z". He likes to prove that the Z's inline six, when built properly, is quite capable of producing horsepower.


P.S. The car you are selling looks very nice.

Yes, one drive wheel. With the different motor, i really don't know, because of the tranny i haven't put the pedal to the metal yet so i couldn't tell you. I'm estimating low 13's.

the inline 6's are very stout and quite quick. My friend down the street is capable of building a very strong and reliable l28 motor.
