Posted 29 July 2011 - 03:59 PM

After my efforts at the lakeside 50th Anniversary meeting and the end result, which has been discussed elsewhere, it's time to put the car and all my spares up for sale.

The car is located in Brisbane, and inspections can be arranged to view the car and spares package.

I am only selling as I haven't the time or resources to rebuild the car. The front left corner is very bent with serious, but repairable damage to the radiator support, inner guard, chassis rail and firewall and floor on the left side. The car should be able to be straightened and pulled back into shape, but you would need to get the car looked at for yourself to make that decision.

For me, the cost of rebuilding is too much compared to building a new more modern car that will be a lot quicker out of the box than a 40 year old Z could be for Production Sports Cars. Having said that the car would make a great track or hill climb weapon, I have Natsoft results showing i can consistentaly lap Lakeside in the low 62's with a quickest time of 61.6 on old slicks on a 45 degree day in february this year. It is very easy to drive and if you need another opinion, Jason (dat2kman) has driven the car around morgan Park. The motor was built for torque more than outright power and the drive out of corners is incredible, it pulls better than a 14 year old schoolboy from about 3000 up to around 7000.

I have owned the car for over 15 years, first racing in the NSW state series, where the car took out out the 1997 NSW Marque Sports driver's Championship and was a consistent top 5 car. I had a ten year brake from racing from 1999 to 2009 with sporadic outings at hill climbs and selected race meetings. In 2011 for my first full season in a long time the car was a consistent top 5 car around lakeside in the PSCRAQ championship, and after 3 rounds in the 2011 series was sitting in 2nd place for the 2B championship.

I have attached a couple of pics of how it sits now in the garage showing most of the damage.

The car will be offered for sale as a job lot with all spares included until September 30 before I consider separating.

The price for the full package, which is the car and all spares, collected over the years to run the car in Production Sports, is $10,000 as is where is. I am only advertising the car here and have also given this info to the Z car club of Qld.

If a few of you banded together to take bits and pieces that is fine, but if it is to be done at the discounted price for the job lot, payment is to be made for the full amount at the one time and the car and bits collected preferable together.

After September 30 the car and all parts and spares bits will be offered at the following:

Bare shell and cage, suitable for rear cut and turret $3,500

Hi Matt,

Geez that's sad to hear, especially after 15 years with that car. Then again time enough for somethng newer!

I have seen this car a few times and it looks the business, could be a great project to get into racing for someone.

From memory it was about 1170 or so, but would have to check the log book. It is an early shell, but fitted with later hatch.

Not giving up on racing, just for the category i race in a Z isn't really competitive. For the money to build a new Z from scratch to do the times mine did I can build a Silvia for a lot less and go 4-5 seconds a lap quicker around Lakeside.

I have had some interest in individual parts, but would prefer to sell as the package to get a clean start on the new car. As PM's come in I am notifying the senders if they are the first second or third in line for the part of interest and also reminding them that if the package sells they will miss out.

For those of you from down south, It would be easier to club together and get the package deal and then fight like seagulls over a hot chip for the bits you want. Delivery may be able to be arranged for the price of a one way trailer hire and petrol money depending on when the car is to be delivered.

Alternatively, the car could be picked up no problems from my place, so a fun weekend road trip could be in order.

This really is a solid package - if you had a shell already you couldn't rebuy the parts for anything close to that.

I was trying to twist a lot of members arms at CiJ over the weekend to do a group buy :P

Matt , my young bloke wants first option on the Sparco seat, and I,m interested in the smallish rims 15" hobbies, that is if the package as a whole isn't taken.

Others you had better start putting your hands up for the parting out, if it happens.

James Flett in Sydney may want the rear half cut for Chris Grey's Z he bent it at Easyern creek a month ago, pushed in and over some 12"

So is this being parted out?

I might be interested in the suspension and or brakes if you work out a combined price.

Will be traveling down to brissy in September.

Some pics would be great if you can put some up.

Cheers

A bit of an update, there has been plenty of interest in specific parts. And those who have messaged me with their list know where in line they are.

There has been some interest in the package, but no dollars yet. After leaving it in the  garage for a few weeks, I have had another quick look at the car and it looks like it would pull out ok on a rack. Hopefully my panel beater will be able to see it ok the next week or so.

Also, if It is sold as a package to be used as a competition car the log  book can be included. This means the cage will still be compliant with the shell.

For zedevan, here is a video of the Zed at it's shakedown run last August at QR, before we went to Morgan Park for the one hour enduro.

Apparently I jagged fastest time of the day, not bad for making sure everything was working right.  :D

For those asking about the engine, i managed to dig up the Dyno sheet from when it was first tuned when the motor was built in May 2010.

The motor made 195rwhp and 212ft/lb of torque, with both power and torque curves relatively flat, basically the motor is like an old truck motor in that it is lazy, but it does pull better than a 14 year old school boy.

Sorry to hear about your Car. Matty Freeman down here sustained similar damage to his 240Z down here at Sandown a few months back. Sadly his will be sitting in a guarage for a few years as well. Big job to fix.  :(

The deadline has passed with no one stumping up the cash to buy the whole lot so it's all up for grabs and to be parted out. let the vultures start circling.........

Those of you who have sent me a PM for bits will be offered the parts requested in the order of receipt. To be fair to me and others who may also want the bits, I would appreciate a quick response if you want or don't want them. I reckon 3 days is plenty and then the next person on the list will be offered the part(s) of interest.

A couple of other conditions:
  • No lowballing - what the stated price is is what I want for the part and I reckon I'm being more than reasonable going by the interest shown in the various bits
  • delivery is on top of the price and for you to organise, I may be able to get the part to a depot or to the post office, but preferred option is pick up
  • Payment by bank deposit or cash on pick up, if by bank deposit i will PM bank details, the bits won't leave my hands until the dollars are in my hands

Shame about the car Matt ... that's a real heartbreaker  :'(
I'd love some of your bits but finance dictates restraint atm.
What's the story with the F54/N42 combo?

It's just a long motor I picked up as a spare for the race motor. I have two L28 long motors that were being kept as spares to replace my block when it was ready for the next rebuild.

Condition is unknown as it wasn't important to me as the block would be taken out to 3mm pretty well as soon as I was going to use it and i was going to use the head from my current race motor.
