Hey Jo, you never really hear about the z cars being popular let alone around in germany. How do I tell if its a series 1? it has the two chrome vent peices on the trunk lid. its a wild strange story how i ended up with this car but the gentlemen selling it told me it was a 72 so either im wrong or he was.

there can be so many mixed parts over the years…….
i do have seen series 2 models with the Chrome vents on the trunk….thats because your car was in an accident for example and the owner just had the rear hatch of an early series car.Because a 72 S30 dont have factory mounted vents on the rear hatch.Does it have the arched rear glass in the trunk)rear hatch)?

I cant tell from the pics on my phone but it does have the 240z emblem instead of the z badge on the c-pillar
