So then it's been tarted up to look early : centre console, wheel trims.....

Where were you in the '80s ?

No, I wouldn't say it's been tarted up to look early. It's a Feb 71 - what the Americans call a "series 1.5". My Fairlady Z is similarly an early 71. That means vented quarters, not tailgate, but still early console, diff in position 35mm further forward that late-71 cars, straight rear transverse link rather than curved, two piece prop and (originally) 71A gearbox.

It could be possibly described as transitional, spec-wise, between the 70 cars and the late-71/72 model year cars.

Here endeth the lesson heathens...

I'm surprised you didn't spot the easy give-aways?

To be fair, I wouldn't have an idea about the wheel trims. No car of mine would ever roll on a set of original wheels with those abominations fitted to them!

They got worse - the 280Zs were horrendous.
