Houston Z owners roll call. I have parts


Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Houston Texas area Z owners.  I have cleared out my storage unit and I will be liquidating some of my excess Z and roadster parts.  Keeping what I deem critical. 

 

I have a recently rebuilt type B 4 speed with about 2000 miles on it. 

I have a 1971 Z orange airbox

I have a polished manifold for SU's

I have a like new Cannon manifold for some Webers that I ran for a while and looks good. 

Have a 1971 Z radiator in good shape as well. 

Have many sets of spark plug wires and other odds and ins as well.   I have a couple of distributers and ballast resisters.

 

If any Houston area Z owners are in need of anything, Mostly engine related, but do not hesitate to hit me up. 

 

I also have the original engine/transmission from my 1971 Z that was in perfect working order when I pulled it.  Those I may not sell. As I want them to go with the car.  But anything is possible 🙂

I have drawers full of grommets, turn signals, turn stalks, and other parts.

I have three distributers. One Original, and one has a pertronix unit in it I think. I will have to get the numbers on them if you like.

I am not planning on selling the engine.  I am actually going to clean it and rebuild it  maybe. It does not leak and never burned any oil.  I wonder if I should just clean it and store it or if I should just take it apart (for fun mostly) and put new OEM rings and bearings and let it go to the next owner.  I have the original A type 4 speed too, which also worked perfectly.

I know what that is like buddy. I was so Z oriented for so long. Then I bought the Roadster and that consumed me as well.  After my kids sports started the cars had to take a back seat for a while.  We had some illnesses in the family and picked up a new puppy and things just kept snowballing.   I am happy to start the Z rolling around again and get that beautiful hood some sunshine.  Want to do some projects that have been lingering in my mind.  Should probably put in a new clutch eventually, but the current one is still doing the job.  Want to up my carbs to 45 DCOE's instead of 40's, but that is a big investment to JUST try it out. 

 

Life does get in the way of the Z's but eventually when the dust settles they just wait for us. That next amazing drive is just around the corner.

I'm with ya!  I bought mine (HLS30-08215) in 2003 (I think) figuring it was a 5 year project, then the following year we had our first kid.  Well I spent years collecting parts and more Z cars and never putting any work into any of them until last year (thank you COVID, and my son for encouraging me and showing an interest himself).  Kids and life got in the way for a while.

 

I'm not sure I see anything in your pix that I need or must have at the moment (or that I think I may need in the future).  There's certainly stuff I could pick up and if it were cheap enough I might, though want to keep focused on getting at least one of these Zs back on the road soon.  😉
