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:
