If you think you'd want another 240k two door down the track, my advise would be to sell your other car and keep this one. You will be lucky to find a second one and every man and his dog wants a two door 240k.

Ditto.
This one has done stuff-all mileage, it's not museum quality restored, so ideal to hang on to as a hobby car until things improve economically. Flog your daily driver!

Your original purchase price, may have been at a premium, based on "rarity"
The bits and pieces you have accquired, in general did cost you premium,
At$900 for a 240k box, that eas about $500 to much (i reco and sell them)

I'd strongly suggest you keep it, put the capital expenditure into it, carefully, drive it, enjoy the ownership, and in a few, or a lot, of years, maybe sell it.
You will not get back what you will have spent, no-one ever does, unless it is a super rare very unique and highly desired car, and the depressed world markets at present, are not a "sellers" market.

Your ask of 11k, if you have to sell, will more than likely be around 6k selling figure

I am working on a "granny spec" datsun 1600, original ask price, $15k, it finally sold, to a non-tyre kicker, who was only prepared to offer $5k. That seems to be pretty well the price for a granny 1600. Your 240k will be the same.

Money back? I am reluctantly selling some cars, their cost to restore them is high, eg my Z, cost 60k, asking 45k, it is a specific use car, a little unique, and in Australia, it is extremely rare, in fact, it is the only one, of this particular Nissan model ( Ex USA import variant)

Here you go - http://www.ozdat.com...hp?f=54&t=28687

Risky ? Possibly, although I know of a few that have gone overseas without dramas.

May be a chance to get your asking figure. Personally, I tend to agree with the above comments. Stuff like NSW rego / shipping / flights - they were a cost to you, not something that increases the car's value.

They may even lower the price someone is willing to pay, if they are interstate and have to pay for their own shipping to get the car back to them for instance.

The car is sold for close to the asking price; it’s gone to a new owner who I know will do this car the justice it deserves!
For the purists wondering what his plans will be:
Full bare metal restoration
JDM fender mirrors
JDM grill
JDM steering wheel
L28 and manual box with LSD diff.
And that is it, so everyone will be happy to know that the body will not be going into surgery for the GTR treatment.
On another note, he didn’t take the gearbox, so I have a manual g/box with all ancillary parts and I’m asking $550 not negotiable and i'm not separating the parts, I’m located in Sydney. If you’re serious then PM me, I don’t want stories about how I’m asking too much or that your cousins dogs sister knows a guy who can get it cheaper!

Well done on the sale, just goes to show you, a car is worth what some one is willing to pay. This guy has a vision, just like you had. Sounds like he will enjoy the car, and everyone is happy. Cheers.

I guess there is an important lesson here for all of us. We shouldn't discount what something is worth until the market has had time to validate our theories to us :).

Is the car remaining in the country or going far away to another land, perhaps the middle east?

Not a surprise at all, there are practically none left anymore. They were all scrapped in the 80's and 90's.

Believe it or not the car is staying in Australia...In saying that, I did have A LOT of international interest...
