Hi Guys,

 

Hoping you guys can help me understand what she might be worth.

Thinking of selling one of my 240z cars as I have many projects on the go.  That said, I don’t care if she sits in my back garage for years.

It’s a 73, auto, sunroof.  It has a L24 in it but not matching numbers.  I have had her running but it would need some love (there is no chance of a can of ‘start ya’ bastard’ and a new set of points making it a reliable engine).  Needs body work, interior, blah blah – it is a rebuild.  I could give a nice sounding L26 with the sale but – whatever!

 

As you see from the pics, it is not complete but I probably have most of it although, for valuation purposes, please assume my spares are crap.

 

What you think? 

 

Cheers

Cliff

Frankly I think that old coat of white paint is hiding a LOT of issues.

All the interior parts, trims and ancillaries look very weathered or knackered and whether the car is complete or not is a moot point as most of what I see there will want replacing.

It's a full restoration project for someone very keen and with an open chequebook.

So, I'm not knocking the car as it is what it is, but I'll stick MY neck out and value it at a bit more above half what is tendered in the post above. Purely MO but I consider that realistic given the quantum of funds that will be required to make it a restored car to be proud of.

As a buyer to me it's worth about 10k, as a seller I'd want $15k :).

From the owner's own description one needs to regard the car as not being too much more than a 'rolling shell'.

 

Unless the car must be sold then the owner is better to keep it for now assuming values will continue to rise for a better return than money in the bank.

To my way of thinking - the bodywork condition is the critical item in assessing value...

 

Those who have restored or sandblasted a car will know what I mean!

Yes, exactly why I said as a buyer I'd want to pay $10k, but as a seller I'd probably ask for $15k. :D

Yes, I have no doubt there will be fun under the paint for whomever.  I have not really done anything with this car since I purchased it other than put it in the back of my garage.  Even my so called "good" 240 had some issues found in the blasting space but we have just been slowly actioning. 

I am in no rush to sell this one but would sell it if someone where interested etc.  Just not sure what the best way of selling them is as I don't want 200 dreamers that come around saying "gee, lots of work there" - I already know this (as does any Datsun guy).

 

Thanks for the ideas on price.  Appreciate everyones ideas.

 

Cheers

Cliff

As a bit of an update, I am considering buying a 260 thus if anyone wants to do a trade (+ money either way to round out value) send me a message.  I am building another 240 atm and am away from home working most of the time so I am in no hurry if that helps anyone.  If not I will prob just buy one when I pull my finger out and sell the 240.  I am located in Caloundra.
