1973 240Z with Chevy V8 - Monguuz


Recommended Posts

This car does not currently belong to me. I'm simply helping my friend with the listing. I did, however, own the shell for five years. See below for more on that. Contact the owner Paul (details at bottom of post) for more info on this sale.


For sale - a '73 240z that was an early build on Hybridz.org. This car was originally built/modified by Tim240z on Hybridz. The car originally had an LT1 and T56, installed with the JTR kit. It had full length headers and one of the first documented Q45 diff swaps.


Some info on the original work can be found here: http://tim240z.iwarp.com/index.html


The car sold to a gentleman in North Carolina in the mid 2000's minus the rear suspension and drivetrain. I bought the shell in July of 2010. My intent was to put it back together similar to what it was before. I got an LT1 from a local guy and bought a Q45 swap. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to really work on this car. It sat in my garage for 5 years, mostly untouched.


A friend of mine, Paul, had a V8 240z that got totalled by a county truck driver. He wanted an 240z to work on, but was having a hard time finding a replacement. He remembered my shell and convinced me to sell it to him. I had a few too many projects anyway, so it was best to sell to someone like Paul who would take care of it.


Paul turned the rolling shell into what's in the pics in the photo album here: https://goo.gl/photos/k2umgWcb24314roL9
