History
I bought the car from a retiring sailor in Va Beach. The history of the car indicates that it was built in Ocala, Fla. I have tried to contact previous owners to verify the build of the motor and modifications to the car but haven't been able to locate them. The shop that built the engine is no longer in business. I owned a new 1973 240Z and always wanted to do the SBC conversion but after having owned it for 11 years it was totaled and not worth repairing.
