Wondering if the z32 came as TT 2+2 in australia or was that import only?
All Z32's sold through Nissan dealers in Australia were NA 2+2's.
None were Twin Turbo's.
The VIN will identify which cars are JDM & which are Auspec.
oh, so if u want a z32 TT 2+2, u have to swap engines? Take out the na engine from the 2+2 and install the turbo engine in the 2+2 z32?
If you want an aus spec body, yes you would need a tt engine swap.
If you are happy with non aus spec, there are plenty of import tts
i want a z32 tt 2+2, with the removal-able glass on top.
Is it possible to get? doesnt matter if AU or JDM spec
Absolutely. Probably the easiest tt to find. It will be a jdm import though unless someone has converted an aus one
Should add that there is no reason to avoid purchasing an imported vehicle
Here's a tip.
If you want a 2+2 (or a 2.0 Seater) Twin Turbo Z32, buy a factory built Twin Turbo Z32.
There are numerous differences between an NA & a TT.
The differences go beyond simply swapping an NA engine for the TT version.
All 2+2 Z32's have the removable glass panels, know as Targa Tops, so it's probably a good thing you want this feature.
Because you'd have a hard time finding one that doesn't have them fitted.
The VIN on factory 2+2 TT's will commence with the letters & numerals, GCZ32-******
Thanks for the tip.
Will be looking to get one later in the year or early 2019 when i sell my mr2 2zzge

Nice clip board action there Scotty
Thread hijack kinda.
Nobody post, this IS a thread hijack
I have a 90 (89 perhaps)
NA 5 speed 2+2 (boasting)
No import plate
None of that
And the vin is short
Road authority think so
Insurer thinks so
Did someone jimmy the import plate?
Only clue here is the short Vin
Have other z and well..
Its not like the others, man!
No rivet holes or tell-tale signs
Just a clean z with someone to love
(Aren't they all and don't they?)
Destined to be a track car perhaps
Have heard import registries (snail
mail confirmation) keep a record
going back to perhaps that
far but what's the deuce.
I say, What is the Deuce!
Old timer once told me the 2+2
And the 2+0 are totally different
cars. He says he'll write a book.
"You can't petition the lord with prayer"
- the doors (you know.. the day destroys
the night, the night divides the day)
Segway for another hijack right there.
It better be!!! I've been driving one ever since my very first venture into "Z32 Ownership"!!!!
What is the VIN?
Zero clue what this guy wants to imply. Is he selling or boasting about his car?
Is this a turbo or n/a model
Some info from that Vin number for you:
July, 1989 model, targa-top, N/A, 2+2 seats, 5spd manual, stock paint colour is EH7 (yellow).
Hope this helps.
What about this one.
November, 1990 model, targa-top, TT, 2+2 seats, Automatic, stock paint colour is KH6 (pearl white).
Thanks. Found out its a trash bomb .
Neither of the 90 na's here have vin
Only chassis numbers
One is 5spd and recently began
Purring happily again after some TLC
R.I.P Left eye (curse the 4x4 that rolled
and she died in)
Chassis on the 5spd is only 10 digits
The other NA is auto
And has the typical 17 digits
Again, no import plates at all
Nissan told me today the auto
Was an AU release model
And shows on their system
But.. the 5spd with 10 digit chassis
Does not show on their system.
Called NEVDIS they want an email
To look into it, their msg on hold
Was a bit eerie - imprisonment wha??
Might just use at track cars
