This car was my fathers, he found it in Redding Ca. it had been stored in a container since 1988. When I got the car from my Dad it did not run or drive, I headed up to his house from Sonoma County with a trailer and drug the Z home. I dug in right away with the clean up!
how she looked the day she came to town, I'm still working on getting the blue plates re registered but Ca likes to make it difficult.
I don't have to many plans for this other than to retain as much originality as possible and to make it a reliable and functional driver. I plan to never paint the car, originally it was Rallye Green which can be seen in many places still, then at one point it was a metallic blue before it was painted its last and final color the grey that you see. I like the patina that has happened naturally and I don't mind the grey color, sure I wish it was the original green but I plan to drive this car and a $15,000 paint job will stop me from doing just that.
The interior was not to bad, drivers seat was ripped, foam was destroyed so i made the decision to re cover the seats, the bottom rear is black so I'm not sure that its original, the top portion a fold down is original but i decided to re cover that as well but i kept the original carpet on the back side.
the console was missing the center shift plate assembly so I did a light restoration on it, I plan to paint it green in the future as well.

I replaced the carpet too that rats had eaten, in hindsight I will likely replace it again with green carpet rather than black. New floor mats followed along with the divider and package tray behind the fold down rear seat. The door panels and kicks were all original, some arse cut giant holes in the doors for speakers at some point down the line.
