Yes, that looks like Phoenix to me. I will be there in a few weeks on Holiday visiting friends.

Great looking 280 on iron cross wheels.

I am not that familiar with the 280Z, but that may be a "ZZZapZ" model. It does seem to have the racing style door mirrors and, as I understand it, they were all finished in bright yellow paintwork (code 411).

Perhaps one of our American friends can confirm.

new pictures will follow after further progress of the restauration process

the painting (a classical americal job in the sellers own garage) is poor so I will have to repaint the whole car - and by this I am considering changing the colour ... perhaps to dark metallic grey
