    Not sure if this could be of interest or not but I have a gearbox for sale, it was mated to an L28 when I purchased it, I don't know what it was originally in though, possibly a Nissan Patrol...

    Here is a photograph, perhaps someone can identify it...?

    Igot what your looking for

    Hi
    This may just may be your lucky day. I have what your looking for. One 280zx manual gearbox.
    Im also in Devon, just outside Plymouth in Ivybridge PL21 9DB.
    If you are still interested make me an offer.
    Phone number 07850310754.
    The only info i can give you about the gearbox i removed it from a running 280zx 2 seater donor car and was working perfectly when removed.

    Would make it 79-81 vintage (assuming UK car) unless already replaced with later type. Normally matched to 3.7:1 differential.

    Were you at the Classic show at Ugbrooke House back in August?

    I was chatting to someone from Plymouth that was trying to restore a 280ZX but was struggling to find parts, especially panels but I couldn't remember the name. There can't be many 280ZX owners in that part of the world.

    Hi
    No, alas it was not me in Ugbrooke House. Restoring a 280zx is not easy, due to the lack of interest in the model in the early years. The best way in my case was to buy a donor car when there were plenty available.
    Hope you find your missing contact.
    Regards
    Stef
