How rare is an original 5 speed manual 240z?


Recommended Posts

The 1973 240z that I've recently purchased is a 5mt. I assumed that it had some work done on it to convert it to a 5mt with a newer transmission, maybe from a 280z. However with some research and a Hayens manual, it seems that I have an original 5 speed based on my VIN and this page below. I'm wondering about how to verify that it is truly an original 5mt and if this is a big deal or not. Thanks!

HLS30167378 is my VIN

Canada =USA in this one case...

Now we need detailed pictures of the trans to look for clues to see if its a 280zx or 280z 5 speed, or a roadster transplate or a true non-NorthAm 5 speed.
