My guess. These are actual physical photos that were scanned into a computer and therefore come out mirrored. I'd say the photos are from some time ago now and likely the car has deteriorated since then. At a guess... :P

By the way he's got that car advertised as a 1969 production car, but I'm doubtful it was...

http://www.classiczc...umber-for-1969/

I'd say it's an early 70 model.

Dude.... why do you keep posting US sales?

Nobody cares.

These cars are on International soil, left hand drive and cost a lot to import...

Yes, I appreciate it, too.

The US classic car market is often indicative of what is going to happen to local car prices. Looking at US auction prices gives you a good idea of what is likely to happen here. Look at FJ40s for example; a quite few good examples went for $60-80K at auction in the US last year, and you can already see the local market responding here.

Some people aren't interested in educating themselves in market trends, but I don't mind it as a hobby, and regularly buying and selling cars is entertaining, so...each to their own.

I would have thought it was self explanatory but since it's not allow me to elaborate. I'm sure there are dozens of us who are interested in the same thing on here. DOZENS!


1. As mentioned it's indicative of a greater trend. The US market has always been saturated with choice compared with everywhere else in the world. As a result their prices have always been softer. Lately though I've noticed their prices are starting to uptick relatively rapidly, I think a big part of it is interest in other Japanese marques like the Toyota 2000GT that sold for over 1M and the Hakosuka GTR and Mazda Cosmo's selling in the $200,000 + range (which I personally think are bargain prices).

2. I watch a lot of markets for parts and cars to get a feel for the way things are going. I also watch cars in Japan, Europe etc.. it is a hobby. Just like this site, like my restoration. I'm interested in all facets of these machines. I have owned an S30z since I was 17 (1998) and nobody else in my close circle of friends really understood my fascination with them. It is validating to see that views are changing and people are feeling nostalgic for these cars. When I was in School I used to get given a hard time for wanting an old 'Datsun'.

3. In particular I like to watch early S30z's. Since they are the very first of the breed and what has lead to the Nissan 370z today. They are coveted for a reason, they were simple, reliable, and a pure sporting experience. With each succession of the series in my opinion they started to loose what was great about the first examples. I think others feel the same way also, hence the reason early cars are attracting a lot of interest.

4. There are not many RHD S30z's around these days, so at some point people are going to consider importing an example from the US as the most viable option as opposed to trying to find 1 to restore here.

5. Would you be offended if I posted genuine PS30's for sale here also? How about HS30-H (Fairlady 240ZG's?) or perhaps a genuine 'works race car'? I think the community would be interested.

6. This thread is about cars for sale, either locally or globally. Do you ever visit Bring-A-Trailer? Most of those are US barn find type cars. But I still find it interesting myself and I'm sure their web-analytics indicates many others do also.

I thought the Cars For Sale classifieds on VicZCar forum were for local members who are selling their vehicles (Z-cars as it is a Z forum) and this post dedicated to local third party sites sales.

Some of the points you mentioned Gav are personal and out of context.

Please don't be offended, I just don't see the logic in posting International eBay sales to simply monitor global prices for personal intrigue and marketing statistics on a local member forum car sales thread, just as how Trading Post also do not see the logic in doing the same.

I can see both sides to the story, in one way i agree with Bozo, when i click on off topic cars when there is a new post, I'm expecting to see cars that are attainable to me, not international cars.

However i am also interested in seeing how the international markets for Zed's are compared to our own. 

Perhaps a new sticky topic would be in order, to cater to the international cars that pop up for sale? would that not keep everyone happy?

Rudolf.

I remember as a kid there was a show called Bozo the clown, seems he's still as funny as ever!

You can import a LHD ZED for about $1500, so it is a viable option and easily done - it also takes about 2 seconds, when looking for a car, to see that the steering wheel is on the 'wrong' bloody side , and you can move onto more productive things like listening to some doof doof- if it takes you longer than that you're a bloody clown! (the double entendre is yours for free Bozo - you're welcome!)

just my rant!
Rev!

I go along with this. I really don't give a shit what cars are selling for in the rest of the world but always eager for a bargain here in OZ. Lets keep it OZZIE. 8)

Really?

- freight and insurance (for the transport of the goods to Australia);
- customs duties, GST and LCT, if applicable;
- storage and delivery charges;
- logistic services providers' charges;
- customs brokers' charges;
- entry processing charges;
- steam cleaning for quarantine purposes;
- other wharf and transport charges;

Would have thought all that would add up to a bit more than $1500?

This is the quote I received from Irony Lady Imports. I was looking to import a clean US car that came up a while back. Here is the quote breakdown I received.



Hi Craig / Kristian,


I was recently watching this car.

http://www.ebay.com/...T-/161224166741

It's a little rough in places, but otherwise looks solid and honest for it's age.

I am wondering if it's possible to tell me what it would cost to bring in such a car to Australia?

For compliance I'm aware that the rear lights might need changing to the amber indicator lights for compliance but it doens't require conversion to RHD being that it's over 30 years old.

Are you able to let me know what it's roughly likely to cost?


Good morning Gavin,

If you choose to proceed with this then we can certainly help with the process. We have great shipping rates arranged from the US at the moment and know the process well.

Compliance should not be too hard as there were not a lot of rules that needed to be met back in 1971. You are correct about the rear lights and also the headlights will need to be swapped to RHD versions although this is cheap and easy being standard round lights which can be sourced from most local car parts stores. Conversion of the car to RHD will not be necessary.

-- shipping costs --
USD $1,350 ocean freight & export customs
insurance up to 1.8% of vehicle value

-- Australian import costs --
$1,350 customs, quarantine & port fees
($500 Quarantine cleaning if required)
$0 import duty
$1,630 GST

-- road registration costs --
$880 ADR compliance
$135 roadworthy (blue slip)
$750 CTP insurance (green slip)
$420 registration (12 months)
$620 stamp duty 

-- other costs --
$50 import approval application
$990 Iron Lady Imports fee ('A' Package)

This is allowing for our full 'A' Package assuming you wanted us to take care of everything, and also trying to over allow a little on the costs to give a really fair idea of real world expenses.

Let me know if this seems like something worth doing and I will be very happy to help as I personally love these cars and miss the one I used to drive about 25 years ago!

Regards,

Craig


Be careful of other vendors as they are not always upfront with the total costs involved of purchasing a car and getting it registered here.
