Re: im a newb to z cars and i need help!!!!!

The body for 1970-78 Z-cars are the same. The main difference (body wise) is the bumpers. There are numerous mods for early z-cars, depends on what you're looking to get out of your car. I would suggest utilizing the "Search" feature to see what types of mods are available for what you're looking for. All you do is select "Search" and type in a subject line (such as "performance Modifications). There is a wealth of knowledge on this site that has been posted and archived. FYI, the more specific question you ask, the better answer you'll get. Also, make sure you "search" any topic of interest before you post a question, it will save you getting sarcastic answers. Good luck and welcome aboard!

Re: im a newb to z cars and i need help!!!!!

Keep in mind there is an early and late 74... Don't use a 75-78 nose if your turn sing are below the grill... Strut tube also change in mid year... 240 style bumpers on early and 75-76 type on late... Just a couple of thing to add to the mix...
