Z stuff is really short on the ground here in perth so 10 doesnt buy much. Running with no rust might get you a 2+2 Try gumtree or martin f

I have some jousting sticks, I recall something vague about mabo  ;D

Whittie has just done rust free shell, not a cheap expense, then theres all the running gear too.

Maybe a more specific request? RB30X has a straight and very powerful example for sale ATM.

Unfortunately, rust free in cars this old means that someone has cut it out. To then have it back together and running, you're looking at significantly more than 10 just for the work.

10k will buy you a 240, but it'll be a long way from pretty. 25 will probably get you a running, good nic (not much rust) 240, but even then it won't be rust free.

Could get a nice project 2+2 for 10 :)

Haha
Tell him he's dreaming.....

Either that, or move the torana to get to the camira to get the car out.

Good luck with the search, something may turn up.

The yellow 240z is far from being rust free, also add another $1000 to transport it back to Perth and hope there isn't any issues that need rectifying to get it relicenced here in WA.

Not trying to be harsh but realistic; any "rust free" zed will either be on a rotiserrie being built, fully restored and IF for sale, would be at the very least $25K+. The other rusty "rust free" zeds will be around the $10K mark. Rusty zeds without any rust visible are usually said to be rust free.
