spare tire well

    Recommended Posts

    guys,

    i have been rooting around the forum but unable to find an answer to my specific question.  I currently have a 71 240 that had the trunk deck cut out and replaced with a fuel cell.  i am putting it back to original.  My question is, does anybody know what years and models are the same?

    also, if you have one for sale, id be interested.  i live in CT.

    see pics of what im working with.

    What models are the same with respect to what parts? Different parts have different answers.

    sorry-to clarify i am looking for a trunk deck and spare tire holder that will fit in my 71.  the question would be can i use a 260z?280z? what year to what year?

    Basically trying to figure out my options.

    I think the 280Z went with a space-saver spare so that's not going to be a match..  I think any 240Z and likely a 260Z will have the correct rear section for you.  Check your area salvage yards for a car you can cut out.  Also - not to drive you away from this group but you also have the Connecticut Z Car Club to draw on for possible assistance in locating what you need: http://www.ctzcc.com/

    The late 260 and earlier 280 had the same spare tire well but I am certain the position of the tire well is different than yours due to the change in design of the fuel tank. Not sure if you are wanting to get that picky about it.

    I have access to a 1971 (late 1970) and a 1972 at a shop near me. I have a 1973, my early 1974, and my son's 1976 at my house. I the next day or two I'll try to examine them for differences and get some measurements.

     i may have a line on a 75 280z

    If you can get the fuel tank cheap and it's good, they are pretty desirable for EFI conversions

    That's a good price but the red colored stuff on the floor is probably rust. Just saying...:facepalm:

    I was under the impression the OP wanted a rear deck and spare tub. Yes, the floors are rusted but the deck looks decent. (could ask for more pic's)

    I personally have seen tubs for sale but never a whole rear deck. A complete parts car maybe, then it shouldn't necessarily be cut up.

    I'd use this deck to fix the car, and sell off the quarters and anything else. 🤷‍♂️ I guess that's just me.
