Model: 1976 260 2+2

Location: eg: Melbourne, South east

Item Condition: Excellent

Body: Has some small (20c) sized dints from vandals

Mechanical: New motor/mikunis/manual conversion (over 7,000 spent)

Registration: Registered AND RWC

Extra Info: For any of the guys that have tracked the progress of this car they know that it has been done right!

I am the second owner of this 260 and I have spent an extensive amount of time getting it to where it is.  It has had a rebuilt L28 which was hot tanked, new pistons,fully recon head and port matched and this has been coupled with recon triple Mikuni carbs on the latest imported manifold with the strong linkages.  it has been converted to a 5 speed manual with a 280ZX box and new clutch slave & master, New brake Master cylinder, new heavy duty alternator, converted to electronic ignition, recored radiator and other goodies I can't remember!

It has 16" Sportsmax wheels running 245 on the rear and 225 on the front with 90% rubber all around, lowered on King springs, ZG flares, non fluted 240z bonnet, nolethane bushing kit, 3.9 ration diff and quite a few of the rubbers have been replaced.  The bum has been modified to go with the bumperless look and looks great.

The interior is pristine with perfect dash and console, perfect seats, carpet and some aftermarket mods such as console, speaker box and tool box.

Really the only thing still to be done is minor dent repair (you can only see it if the light is shining down the vehicle)

Price: with Reg and RWC $12,000

Hi simon ...I knew that question would come!  with kids growing up I would like to buy a 2 seater...I'm still not sure I can bring myself to part with it...but it's the only way I'm going to afford anything else.  I built it as a 'keeper' so someone will get a bargain!

Guys,
If anyone is looking for a VERY good Zed, this is the car to buy.
I can personally vouch for it - as I'm sure Daniel Moore can.
It's very underpriced for what it is.

FWIW, Dave has a very good reason for selling.

Where are all the guys on here that want a Z?  ???

I think those that have seen this car in the flesh would agree that it's a very underpriced Z and it looks even better in person.

It's actually at that price that I'd consider buying it, however, that would probably mean that my Z would never get finished  ;)

Hope you end up with the Z you want Rev!

Wow Rev will be sad to see that car go. Someone will be getting a bargain. To all you talkers out there. You have no excuse for not buying this car. You would have to spend 25K to get one this good if you were planning on doing up one. So save your time and bucks and get one that was built with lots of TLC.
Good luck with the sale Rev I hope the 240 isn't far away. Anyone would think you had to much time on your hands.
Regards

Hey Johnny...yep almost got the second Zed finished and that will be up for sale shortly...it is looking fantastic...pics to come.   The other one I was working on has gone to a mate to try and get him started in the world of Zeds.  By the way I thought I would put it out there that I may take a trade in of another Zed as part payment...so that I can bring another one to life!
Rev.

P.S Thanks also to the guys who have commented how nice the 'RevZed' is, I appreciate...it pumps up your tyres to know that others appreciate your work!

It really fustrates me - people come onto this forum and post "I'm looking to buy a Zed", yet when one a good one like Rev. Dave's Zed falls into people's laps, all that can be heard is 'chrickts chirping'.

Lurch, reason is everyone wants a fully restored zed with "drive away with no more to pay" for a couple of thousand. Like a R31 Skyline I sold on ebay, with reg and RWC struggling to get a bid at $2400...I know it's just a Skyline but a scarce 5 speed with new 17" wheels and tyres, you'd think people would've bashed my door down to get it. In the end I got screwed over anyway so i lost more  >:(
