just wait for one to come up for sale in vic, and buy it asap
...i also agree that you dont really need to go into uni for mech eng and driving down from qld in one go with another driver isn't to painful at all, somewhere around 18hours

I like the look of your car mate nice job, have done so as you asked, How much you looking to sell for ruffly in a years time do you think? and why selling in a years time?
I have 3 Zeds;
260 2+2 Daily driver
260 2 seater (avatar) to be restored
260 2+2 Parts car
The car I plan to sell is the daily driver, but this will only happen when I restore the 2 seater. I'm currently $900 shy of my restoration budget. When the bank statement hits the magical figure everything will start to happen. When the restoration is finished I will have no need for both of the 2+2s so they will be sold at my leisure.
Good luck with your hunt, get the word out to anyone you know, within 6 degrees of separation is a Zed under a tarp that's waiting for you.
I found my 2 seater by a friend telling me about a car he had seen in a paddock whilst on a fishing trip. He said it was sort of like mine and that I should check it out. I was expecting to find a 280ZX and was blown away when I realised it was a 2 seater. $2000 cash and she was mine.

Found one in QLD
that be great but 4000km is a fair drive HAHAHAHA but its perfect for what im looking at
Before you blow your uni budget flying halfway up Australia to look at it. Ask him to send you more photos. In particular under the car (you want to see those chassis rails). Also under the battery area in particular they rust like anything here due to battery acid and neglect. Sills are another common spot, floor pans. There is rust in the rear hatch which means the rear tail gate area is probably rust and there is a sunroof in it.
Sunroofs are not great because the car has a unibody design meaning that the structural integrity of the car is affected by the sunroof. May or may not bother you.
Also the dashboard pic is not good, its probably cracked up good from QLD sun. That alone costs $800 to fix.
Overall the car looks ok and well priced but honestly get more photos from the guy first.
There are no engine bay pics either.

both damaged and not damged auctions.
had a very reasonable 2+2 sell here in adelaide for 1650. it had rust but definetly dirvable pretty good floor pans. just light rust around back hatch area. engine was clean and was runing.
they do pop up even there. also there was a rear damaged 2 seater 260 with a VG30DETT engine conversion that went for 3600. 2+2 was about 6month ago. the 2 seater was in NSW about a year ago.
if i find something on there ill post it here for you.
also fowles auction group too. massive one in Altona. thats the only spot i think u find a bargain unless there is a clown like me pressing the "bid" button behind the PC trying to snap a bargain too.
other than that. check trading post word of mouth works good. just dont blab how much they worth. also look around u be suprised what u see if u pay attention in peoples yards.
dont rush as of yet. give it a few weeks.
