  1. 1. What is my car?



Recommended Posts

that story goes like this. i saw this ad in craigslist for a 260 a few monthes back. it was owned by a really old lady. she said it was a 260 with a "bigger engine". That "bigger engine" was an L28. i looked at the manafacture date and it says 5/75. I though 75 was the first year for the 280z so ive always considered it a 280z. But latly there are things that give me doubts and make me think its a 260z. First thing was when i was at the MSA show when they were bringn the cars in he looked at the front of my car and but me in the 260z section even thou i told him it was a 280z. then i had listed the interior on ebay. I had said it was tan. Someone asked me a question telling me it looks like brown from a 260z. the car # is 216915. heres some really bad pics.

 

 

here it is when i first got it.

Is it carbed, or does it have fuel injection? Not a foolproof indicator, but 75+ 280's should have come with fuel injection. You might have gotten classed with the 260's since your bumpers are off. That's one of the biggest visual cues as to what model you are dealing with.

 

*edit* cool wheels by the way.

look at the VIN plates on the door jam and the engine compartment on the driver side. 2600cc = 260, 2800cc = 280z. And see if the actual VIN on the plates corresponds the VIN above the brake booster on the firewall.
