A CAMS sticker on the roll cage or dadhboard?
Logbooks or paperwork?
Old rego papers? Who you got it from?
I can access the CAMS database if we can determine the number on a sticker in the car.
The sticker may have a year printed on it, and a four digit handwritten number.

It was not my race car, although I did campaign a 240 including in Marque Sports radial class in the 90's in a couple of races at the same time as Neil Cartledge, Lindsay Drife and Rob Laughton. It is 110 red. It is not Rob Laughton's ex car although in certain light you can see evidence of the large "Z-Spares" stickers from the time on the rear quarters. I believe it may have come from Bendigo. Anyway no log books, Cams stickers, etc.
Gav, re: your suggestion to name a price; I hear your point and I will think about that one.

Original numbers car is a road car - no signs of racing. Other car with L28 was raced - cage evidence, Koni inserts and in certain light I can see where large Z-Spares stickers were on the rear quarters. That tells me it could have been raced late 80's to mid 90's as I was campaigning a 240 that I ran in Marque Sports radial class a couple of times (Same time as Neil Cartledge, Lindsay Drife and Rob Laughton). I heard a whisper at one point that it could have been from Bendigo?
Both cars are currently Red 110 however the original numbers road car was originally in the darker red 905. This can be seen now I've got the interior out.
Road car doesn't have any obvious accident damage and the chassis rails, radiator support, etc look straight. Bonnet in particular is super straight however there is some minor hail damage. Track car has dent in roof, dent in right rear quarter and radiator support and rails have evidence of previous repair.
Both cars are rusty but not beyond repair in all of the usual places. I will focus on road car (it's rust is possibly a little more advanced than track car). It has rust perforation in roof side leading edges, floors (and rails) need replacing, rust in top of front guards, lower front guards, lower doors, rear quarter arches, A-pillars and bulkhead - the latter doesn't look irretrievable.
I was planning on removing all panels including unstitching the roof, rear quarters and sills, replacement floors and rails - basically restoring from the inside-out - lots of POR-15 rust preventative inside while panels are off, etc. - trust me this is the only way to do it properly on a 240 resto. If you want a long-term proposition.

I was tempted myself. But nowhere to store them. First world problems.
Still would like to see photos just to see what they were like.

Considering how quick these cars sold and even without pictures, demonstrates the demand for the 240z
They could have sold after an inspection. Details are light on.
I too would love to see photos but we might never see the seller again...

If there is enough demand you'll be able to find someone making parts.
So far only the very early 240z parts are hard to source. Some AU specific parts are however taking me a while to find. Like the 5 speed OEM knobs, the drivers door mirror, the early fender mirrors those are proving the hardest to find.
The rest is obtainable if you're willing to spend enough or wait for an item at a good price.
