Late 260z 2 seater in less than ideal shape. Missing the top half. Maybe good for a convertible conversion?
Out near Newcastle NSW. Listing says $Free
I would be interested in going to look at it for sections of the body, but won't be back in Australia for another week or 2.

I find it hard to believe someone will do that to it. At this stage I think it would be restored. I did think about cutting it up though, mostly because I want a rear 1/4 panel on the driver side. So if someone does this and doesn't need it please let me know?
I could also be keen on the windscreen haha.

What are peoples thoughts on this? Is this overpriced?
Depends on what you're looking for, it looks like an honest car but you would want to know more about it's history, was it repainted and when and did it go to bare metal? How is the underside of the car and common rust prone areas? There is quite a few items that are not original, gear knob, choke knob is broken, radiator is aftermarket, airbox is missing, bonnet badge is gone. Hard to tell on the angle of the photo but bonnet may have had a nudge in the past as the swage line on it looks a little droopy and it's usually a very defined sharp line.
It looks like someone put some kind of temporary bench seat in there, not sure if it's permanently attached but certainly not original. Seats are late 260z (77/78 model).
If it was well restored apart from a few odd parts mixed in over different years and you want a turn key car that doesn't require restoration it might not look like a bad deal in the next 5 - 10 years if you buy it now, with the way the market is moving.
However the seller is a dealer and doesn't appear to know much about them, they are also charging quite a bit of mark up also.

short answer yes its not an early 240 or 100% original....knock 10-14 grand off the top and you are in the ball park i reckon.

Thanks for the responses Gav and 74zzz, I am a little new to the 240Z scene, but thought as much. There is so much to be aware of when buying a classic car, good to know people on here are willing to share their expertise
Furthermore, and I know this is off topic but, is there a general buyers advice thread somewhere on the forum?

I was looking at the photos earlier today and trying to see what was wrong with it for that price.
