Turns out the rel="nofollow" attribute is already enabled. So shouldn't be passing PageRank to Tubby Lees. Link away :).

Being Edward Lees I think that photo should represent his mindset.

I will honestly put him at 500k if it's an original.

No Kobe Seiko wheels? Or were they an option?

Far to many have been ripped off or mislead by that dealership - I can't believe that the MTA haven't cancelled his dealer license.

I wouldn't believe anything that Edwards Lee's has to say - He has less than zero credibility in my book.

I guess all those photos were taken in Japan, can even spot a 2000GT in photo 11 + 14.

Then I've done my job.

Makes you wonder doesn't it?

No Kobe Seiko wheels? Or were they an option?


I am pretty sure (but open to correction from Alan HS30-H) that they were fitted as standard on the 432 PS30 (but not the 432-R PS30-SB), as some of you may recall there was a Yahoo! Auction recently where a set of 5 wheels was sold. The price was upwards of $15k AUD for wheels alone.

The seat trim is also incorrect for this year S30z, it has the later 74+ style seat trim.

Pretty poorly crafted ad anyway, no mention of the rally clock working or other components. Asking top money.

I would be interested to know what it sold for in Japan, I'll bet nowhere near asking price.

I doubt it is even for sale ?
This kind of ad can help lift a business's internet search results.

I've just checked into my hotel in Tokyo, so I'm *almost* on your timezone.... ;-)

 

Isn't this just Edward Lee's doing an "I can get this one for you" type thing? The car is clearly with a classic dealer in Japan (I'll see if I can find out which one...) and isn't in Australia. It's nothing to do with Edward Lee's as far as I can see. It's registered on a Hachioji area plate (Tokyo dormitory suburbs), so that might give a clue to where the dealer is.

 

It's a 'late' PS30, and in Japan they call these six-digit chassis numbered cars '240Z' shelled 432s. They kind of have *less* 432-specfic 'shell content than the earlier five-digit 'shells. They have the 'B' type transmissions, usually R200 diffs instead of R192s, the big brake booster and all that kind of stuff. I think the general concensus is that these *late* 432s are less desirable and worth less than the earlier ones. This particular car has some strange un-432-like mods - for example the front valance/spoiler - and seems to have lost its standard-issue Kobe Seiko '432' magnesium wheels. 

 

The car doesn't appear to be on the list of known extant 432s kept by Club S30 member Watanabe san. I'm meeting up with them on Saturday night for the club AGM and dinner, so I might ask him about it then. You never know, it might be one of the known "Obake" (ghost) 432s that suddenly re-appear after having been MIA. Some of them (*some* of them...) are re-shells.... ;-)

Come on now Alan, calling it a "240Z shell", is that really correct?  ;D

An expat Aussie I know, nw based in Kyoto, has been to the shop.
It can be bought directly.
There'd only be one or two here that could afford it,
PITA i can no longer drive.

Seems like the ACCC might like to know? It looks like 'bait' advertising to me.

Hi Alan

It certainly looks like he is doing that - Again.
If he is, then it constitutes a clear breach of not only the MTA act but also contravenes Dept of Fair trading advertising rules.

Hmmmm.....

Spot on Gav. If you advertise a particular vehicle you must have it available for sale and delivery at the time the ad goes live.
In the industry we have watch how we advertise new cars that are in short supply so as not run fowl of the ACCC. At times we have stop advertising a particular model in order to remain compliant.

Plenty of interesting stories around the media and net.
He seems to be Mr. Teflon though.
