    Question 240Z Steering Column Cover differences

    Does anyone have pictures showing the difference between the 70-72 steering column covers and the '73 steering column cover? I am just curious as to how they compare. Thanks!

    I can not show you a picture but the '73 has a larger one, just slightly , than the earlier years . My '73 had a top from a 73 and a bottom half of a 70 witch didnt come together well. I have since replaced it with a correct one . Gary

    For a comparison picture, go to Kat's website. Look under "Original Details",
    and the first item is "miscellanious of interior item". Scroll down and you will find the picture. I would attach it here if I knew how.

    Hi Mat, I just cleaned it up with formula 2000, so it is very shiny!

    So, the 240Z has three different types of covers?

    No, it actually looks as if it came from a post 68 Roadster either the 2000 or the 1600.

    Ask Victor Laury, he'll know in a heartbeat.

    Actually it look just like the one on my car so I'm saying it's from a 77-78 280Z.
