Found another Z, this time a bit of a drive from me- I'd have to drive the truck there and trailer it back.
Currently non-op, but I can register it here with the title later.
383 SBC build with 5 speed (I assume a T5).
The guy bought it from the previous owner who daily drove it, but it's been non-op on his property ever since. I guess she has a big ranch and drives his toys around there (must be nice, I'd have a motorcycle track!).
He claims everything works to the best of his knowledge, but it hasn't been on long trips. Dash cover is glued on (I assume cracked dash), gauges swapped for aftermarket.
He says the clutch chatters on easy launches, probably has some aggressive race-y clutch on there, I've experienced that before.
What do you guys think? Pluses for me is the body is relatively solid (I could live without the hood bulge, but I think it's needed to clear the carbs/filter), he claims no rust, and it's supposed to be mechanically solid.
Interior work I can handle slowly. Carpet kit, steering column, maybe a better wheel to match the car.
I'm assuming the side pipes are damn loud (my cobra kit was), so that'll need some work later on, maybe replace with a more traditional layout.
I'd plan for a full fluid change too- brakes to oil to radiator. And to play the CA registration game. At least I have AAA.
