The only problems are with the 3 speed auto which is missing 2nd and third, a damaged rear bumper, and some small trim items that are missing.

Can anyone help with some info on this model, or suggest a source of spares?


If you meant spare trans, there's lots of donors. Especially for a 3spd. 280Z, 710, 810, Stanza (with L18, not Z18/Z20), etc. Almost everything from the late 70s/early 80s with an L-series engine can donate a trans.

If you're hip to an upgrade, there's a few cars out there with 4spd autos too. :wink:

With the 4th gear/overdrive being electric (powered by a switch on the console) it's a breeze to wire up as well. Just need to shorten the prop shaft and maybe dink around with the trans mount a bit. :tu:

Yeah it's mine. all original adn everything works..

But i dont know how to post pictures. if you can help, walk me through how to post them. that would be great.


If an image is online (on the web), you can paste the link in a reply and place the link between img-marks:

[ img]your image link between these brackets[ /img]

example:

[ img]http://www.test.com/my_image.jpg[ /img]

BUT without spaces in [ img] and [ /img]
(I had to place spaces because otherwise this forum thinks it's an image, but it's an example)



How do you get them online?

Create an account on www.photobucket.com or www.flickr.com, or www.pixagogo.com, .... and you can upload pictures to your account. Then the images are in your personal online album. You can right-mouse-click to an image and copy the url...

If it's not clear, just ask!

allmost perfect :)

you have to right click at the full vieuw of the image, not a preview.
In photobucket, you can copy the img-code from the page where you view your picture, is much easier and always correct ;)

Thanks for posting, I am jealous! :)
So nice, that warm, comfy looking interior. We had the same in the eighties, except it was LHD and the chrome parts (lock, audio, ...) were also black, no chrome at the dash.

I regret my father sold it ...

Funny you should mention that, I'm looking at selling or swapping the 280C and my three Granadas, so I can concentrate on my other projects.
