240Z nose-cone questions

Post by Nis&Dat » Sat Feb 13, 2021 11:33 am

Hi all,
My first post, so a quick intro as well. I'm Lincoln and have a Z32 with a VH45DE engine transplant, living near Hamilton.
A quick question, can someone please check out this pic of what I am told is a 240Z. I have only seen a couple with a front-end/nosecone like this and want to know if this can be modified to look more like the regular 240z's. If so, what work is involved?

Cheers,
Lincoln.

Certainly a 240Z (or maybe a 260Z) with a G-nose.

That's called a "g-nose". There were some homologated "Fairlady ZG" cars built with this, but that will be an aftermarket add on.

I think all you'd need to convert back would be unbolting the g-nose and bolting on a front valance (I have a beat up one under my house actually) and possibly replace the headlight buckets. So, pretty easy.
