Steering Column for a 73 240Z

So just an FYI so others don’t waste money like I did. The steering column off a 1978 280Z will NOT fit on a 1973 240Z. I contacted the ebay seller to check before hand and was assured it would, unfortunately upon reciept and attempt at putting it in the car it does not fit :(

I guess I’ll just have to rig the bad 73 column for the haul to Colorado and look for another solution in the coming months.

Lesson learned, don’t trust ebay sellers to know what they are talking about.

The steering column from the 280zx cars doesn't fit either, it's actually a smaller diameter. That also means the stalk controls and keyed ignition switch don't fit in their factory locations. Just another FYI. It's always a good idea to request specific measurements from ebay sellers ahead of time. Of course, I should follow my own advice there. I have some 260z seat brackets that don't fit the 240z because I didn't.
