Highly collectible early 240z # 0672 race shell for sale.

Matt (PZG302) still a member of this forum and still in the racing game owned this NSW road registered car for over 15 years, first racing in the NSW state series, where the car took out out the 1997 NSW Marque Sports driver's Championship and was a consistent top 5 car. It had a ten year brake from racing from 1999 to 2009 with sporadic outings at hill climbs and selected race meetings. In 2011 for his first full season in a long time the car was a consistent top 5 car around lakeside in the PSCRAQ championship, and after 3 rounds in the 2011 series was sitting in 2nd place for the 2B championship.
If this car was restored to it's former gory the car would be fully compliant with 2B prodsports by fitting the headlights
You could then run anywhere, such as sprints, hill climbs in championship classes as well as door to door when you want to step up.
Door to door includes CAMS championship sprint races in QLD, NSW and Vic, as well as the one hour series that is run at Bathurst at Easter, Wakefield, QR or Warwick and finishes at Phillip Island in November each year. PLus can be run various AASA events that are either prod sports rounds or run to prod sports rules in Qld, Vic and NSW plus the 300km races at Wakefiled and Winton.
Here is a video of the Zed at it's shakedown run last August at QR, before we went to Morgan Park for the one hour enduro.
Apparently he jagged fastest time of the day, not bad for making sure everything was working right.
If this car was restored Matt still has the log books and is willing to to release these to the person upon his approval of the car when it is ready for Cams inspection, any racing information and detail you will need to get from him, the log books have nothing to do with this sale and only an arrangement between Matt and the buyer after the car is finished. I am sure he would even sign the dash board for you.
This car is not on any register as a right off so should be no real problems getting back on the road.
For best investment potential I would suggest the car would be better to be restored to former race days. Matt is building another race car so his racing history days will only get better.
Sadly after his efforts at the lakeside 50th Anniversary meeting 2011 the car was smashed as shown.

The roof is in good condition, as is the left rear quarter. The right rear quarter is useable, but has had a hit that was repaired. The inner guards are also modified for extra clearence.
The rear panel is good as is the rear floor from the step back. The front of the floor around the footwells and transmission tunnel isn't great, it got tweaked in the hit. The firewall is also ordinary. The front....well the right inner and rail maybe useable. The cage is six point and is also useable.
Price to get this highly collectable shell is $3000.00.
Shell is located on the Gold Coast Qld.

I have decided at the moment to not sell these cars until this race shell is sorted, so the buyer can have first choice on the other cars either it gets rebuilt or cut up.

Seeing you were interested in these years ago, even though you never came to see them, I will make you a one time offer, you can have the lot for 4k, but you only have till next Sunday to put a deposit on them. After that I will keep them.

If I was going to keep the cars the 2+2 would be cut up for the parts for the race car as the front is fine for it, the roof of the 2+2 I was going to use on the matching # 1051 car making a complete one using the hatch and back sides off the old roof. so there will be only 2 cars to store both being 240z's
The #1051 car only needs the roof replaced and the back hatch panel, and some small rust repairs that have shown up on the back corners of rear guards, the rest is only surface rust that will clean up with a disk. The matching motor still turns and dash has been re-skinned.
I have no photos on this computer and I am sure they may be lost when my office one went down, will take some when I get a chance.

Forgiveness is easier than permission.

Finished discussing the cars with Patch and looks like he will be holding onto the cars which is great news.

So I wanted 3k for the race car, that would make for an extra 1k and they would of got
A complete matching number 1052 car with a re-skinned dash,, needs a roof and a few new rust repairs on the back hatch and corner of rear guard's
A 100% complete 2+2 that has the 240z motor in it and complete air con, and the seats from the 240, it is a rust bucket at the back but front is fine for parts for the race car.
There was a complete L280c motor sitting in the shed as well.
The 1052 car is sitting in a shed with flat tires, for me to take photos I would need to move the car to get around it, so I would need to clean the shed up to make room, no point taking photos of a dusty car, so while I am at that I might as well clean all the junk out of the car that doesn't belong there, while I am doing that I might as well grind all the flaking filler off and clean the surface rust off, seeing the T-Top looks unsightly now, I might as well cut that off also. I can use the roof off the 2+2 to make this complete, so might as well start cutting up the 2+2.
People don't like the idea of to many cars so I will need to take the motor out of the 2+2, while I am doing that I might as well clean it up so it looks nice in a photo, might as well put in back in the matching car to make it easy for transport, might as well take the seats, and windscreen out of the 2+2 and put that with the 1052 car, that will make that 99% complete, so to make it 100% I should of bought a pressure plate, that has gone missing. Seeing the motor still turns over I might as well get that going.
Since I am going to clean all the rust off to make a nice photo, I had better put an undercoat on it as well to stop it rusting again.
So as you can see trying to sell 3 Zd's car is not easy, to make things worse I have a broken hip, so please all the people that want nice photo's taken the cars will be taken off the market until I can get those nice photos for you.

I know its a lot of work but you are basically getting 2 cars for the price of one...
Anyway good luck with the recovery of your hip Patch and the sale of the cars.

At the moment I have given up trying to sell them and I am not far from walking so might be able to start back in the shed again so will get them ready for the photo shoot that they all what photo's of.
When a man says he is going to do a job, you don't need to remind him every 6 months to do it, so no reminders please.

I'm truely surprised how hard a time you are having selling these.
I'm not. Had a hard time myself selling a straight but rusty 240z myself. Started it at $5000, and had to take $3000. Most people don't want to put the work into it, or don't have fat enough wallets to get the work done. Most people want a Z that just needs a buff and a polish and a tune up, and be drivable, and they want to pay 1990's prices for them.
Is there no Z specialist workshop over where you are that might be interested the lot for parts?

The wife won't let me buy using our combined savings (the money I convinced her to use for the other 240z I was going to buy but got screwed on) because of how many there was and lack of space here so if I just keep the money aside from my own savings therefor she can't say no. So if these pop back up for sale next year (I plan on having my 2+2 done by years end) I will be racing down your house throwing the money at you so you better have upgraded from walking to running so you can catch it all.
