Not an S30z, a Mazda Cosmo.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/252007034619

But worth watching all the same in my opinion...

US $169,500.00 buy it now price.

I believe this car is less than perfect, hence lower asking price than some other examples that sold recently.

This isn't an S30 either - but I remember when they were new  :o and they still look gorgeous. Like the Z, their design has stood up to the test of time better than most others.

"...car is in shipment to Germany currently !
Restoration - Project
Nissan Silvia CSP 311
absolute rare Japanese car
only 554  hase been produced  ( handmade ) from 1965-1968
...
the car is nearly complete
missing parts : hubcaps
fender banches**  ( Nissan Silvia )
seats are non original ( Datsun 240 Z  )
headlights - bezel"

** "fender banches" must mean fender badges.

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2ee3a5b883
eBay item number:201387784323

The (buy it now) price is £19,600.00 (currently = AU$41,575)

There was a metallic green Silvia like the second photo that I saw numerous times in the late 60's in Melbourne.

Gee its tidy. The corner valances are different to our 240z models with the indent and I'm not overly sure if the U.S. Style front bar.

This one is asking £40k, the car sales person said this car was own by some famous racer and with a highly modified engine.

Have you all wonder... If ever one day china opens up to classic cars.. What will happen?

Yeah I have wondered I imagine it will be a market of crazy speculation like their stock market, property market etc...

Some people will make a lot of money selling less than great cars to ignorant Chinese investors... Are you paying attention Phil Lee?

Hahaha Who is phil lee?
Anyway cars cant really compare to stocks and real estate i think. Stocks are unlimited so does real estate.
Population growing year by year, classic cars are limited. Unless the car brand rebuild the  same model, i dont think the price will have a sharp fall. Worst case scenario everyone sells at the same time. It could fall, but the again its so limited to begin with.

My dad was a Nissan dealer many years ago and mum and dad drove me home from hosptital in an identical orange 240Z in 1971... Apparently they tossed me on the back shelf in a basket and I ended up in the footwell when dad hit the brakes....it must have effected me!


Well it certainly did affect him ;).

Does the banks provides any loans for classic cars?
In Malaysia any car above 10years loans applications are rejected.

It's all relative to how much collateral you can put up and if they think it will be paid back, your credit record etc.. Of course size of loan is also a factor, I guess it depends totally on the type of loan you're looking to buy a car with. It might not classify as an 'investment'.

Then it is abit dangerous i think. it could burst like the us sub prime bubble. But as long as AU banks are strict in credit checking i think it should still be fine.
Malaysian has to pay cash for classic cars, i guess is because there is no benchmark for a classic car valuation.
Many insurance companies doesn't even provide coverage.

Gidday,

A rather complicated question but in summary.

Chattel Mortgages over older cars are very hard to get set, due to high risk over the condition of the vehicle, this should not be the case with Classic Cars but automotive finance companies generally just see cars as New, Demonstrator or Used.

General personal finance (often used for car purchases) is approved based on a range of pcriteria including financial capacity and credit history. Once approved you can use the money for just about any, legal, purpose.

Cheers

Pb
