      Nice. Is it original, gone through? Repainted?

          Sid- Its has not been touched. I bought it in 1980 after my Corvette was stolen. 72,000 miles. Need to redo the leather seats, but that's all. Thanks for looking !!

            A contemporary and race rival of rhe earlier Z cars--a 74 Triumph TR6. A lot of shop made parts in it.

              I was in and around Japan in the early 1970’s. The “z” cars were sold a “Fairlady” and were marketed to women drivers. No Japanese man would drive one. I am rather fond of lumpy practical autos like the ‘38 Dodge sedan and truck, and my current towncar, a 1957 Beardmore, London Taxi. I put the wife in the back and close the glass partition. Some of you will curse him. British car enthusiasts refer him as “Lucas: Prince of Darkness” Click image for larger version

                  I've shown this before... A 1966 Ford F-100, purchased as the second owner in Whitefish, MT in 1984. I sold it to a friend a few years later, only to have my then girlfriend buy it back. Been storing the thing ever since.

                  The body had no rust holes but there was a lot of worn paint and surface rust, so I painted it in 1991. It's pretty much all stock. I reupholstered the seat a while back (just poked a hole in it last year) and the engine got its second rebuild about 14 years ago. The front bumper, grill, and driver side fender were replaced a few years back after an accident. These days you can buy almost anything for the truck. Other than the seat, the interior remains untouched, with the original paint.

                    George - that's a beauty ! My Dad was a plastering contractor in the 60's. I would help him in the Summer and drove that truck to work. He killed Dodges and Chevys, but the Ford was a beast !! Still a good looking truck !!

                      Beast is a good description. It's not overpowered with the original 240 straight six but is geared like a tractor. The original owner bought it to use with a bed-mounted camper and ordered a beefier suspension and a Dana 60 rear end with posi.

                          The Z cars used the Fairlady name in Japan through the mid 90s.

                          I’m not sure if they continued it with the 350z/370z.

                              IIRC the chrome grill was an option, the stock grill was white paint. Love the simple dashboard compared to today's' 747-inspired offerings.
