You will get good info here. You may also find good info at Zhome.com and ClassicZcars.com, both of which specialize in Z-cars.

I'm sure we'd all love to see photos of the interior and exterior. Rust is the #1 enemy of Z-cars, both on the body and the frame rails underneath. A good assessment of the rust situation is among your first tasks.

At six years you will want to get the old gas out of the tank and fuel lines, and clean goop out of the carbs.

There are a number of threads discussing bringing cars back from "the dead," so searching and reading will be helpful to you.

My first Z was a '71...I just found the purchase papers this weekend while going through old stuff. HLS 3015741, white with blue interior.
