Chuck Smith’s Z Story: As for how I got the red z, I actually bought a different one first about a year and a half ago. It was a white 1986, just the shell with no trans or motor.
I bought a turbo motor from someone else, tore it apart and resealed everything but the heads, and then put it into the white one. Then I got around to wiring and realized that the harness was completely shot from flood damage and that the title was salvaged.
I didn’t know what to do next, and then two weeks later I saw the red one pop up on marketplace for super cheap so I showed up the day after it was posted and was the first guy to look at it.
It’s an NA motor, but I’ll be swapping in the turbo motor from the white one this winter and will finally have the project I’ve been workin’ towards!!
