In the following book:

There is a copy of a letter, dated August 17, 1945, from the then president of Republic Aviation Corporation, Alfred Marchev, in which he makes reference to the P-47 "Z" being produced in limited quantities from November until June 1946.

So obviously the question is, what is a P-47 Z? Anyone know? I can't find anything on it...

Do you mean the part "and the P-472 will be produced in limited" it's a two, not a Z.
Ì think it's a typo, the only think the would fit in the time of 1946 would be the P-72 (Republic XP-72)
, a further development of the P-47 with a R-4360, one hundret was ordered but not build because the war ended.Look for an errata for this book.
