    I suspected the deleted spare tire well would be for the "R" version of the 432. Doesn't make sense to take up the luggage space with a tire for a consumer model. 100...

    Thinking about the 432

    I've seen pictures of the deck in the 432, which has the spare tire well deleted. Does anyone know if there is a different / larger fuel tank than a typical S30 below this flat deck?

    The reason I...

    You would have to move the mounts to a lower postion to get the stock 280Z sway bar to fit. If there isn't a mount, you would have to buy some or cut them off of the 280.

    Rear sway bar mount

    My 1/73 has the mounts (as all 73's should), but does not have a sway bar. I was under the impression that no 240's came with a rear sway bar stock.

    I was stripping some parts from a 78' 280Z with...

    My five speed experience.

    For 5 speeds out of Z's from 77' up to 79' the ratios are all the same as the 4 speed, so if you like your current shift ratios on the four speed, go with the older transmission.
