1978 Datsun 280Z

1995 Chevrolet LT-1 / T56


 

This car came from Pennsylvania with just over 52,000 original miles on it.  There was no motor or interior in it, but it was nearly rust free. 

 

 

 

 

A poor f-body gave it's life for this little project.  Some idiot managed to spin this nice little convertible around and hit EVERY body panel.

I stripped every usable part and dropped it off at a local salvage yard.

 

 After a "few" months in the garage, this it what came out.

Right after the motor went in.

  

 

 

  


Look here to watch a couple of videos of the car at the race track.

What did it look like the day I pulled it out of the garage?  

Literally, this was the first time the car ran with it's new power plant.  

There were a few body parts and glass missing, the wiring was scabbed in to get the 

computer to run, but I had to try it out.

What does it sound like today?

After a little head/cam swap, the idle has gotten a little lumpier :-)
