    The Global Z-car (S30/S130) Market Thread.

    1 family owned, California Datsun 240z. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1972-datsun-240z-60/ @my_mad_z same colour combo as my 73 240z. :D, 110 red with white interior. Nice drive in San Francisco (just see the Bay Bridge at the start).

    Finally got these home for inspection. Beautiful! Plating looks great and they are super clean, like a new set! Photos don't capture them properly.

    MZR Datsun 240z Coupes

    Anything bespoke or custom always costs a Premium. That's the cost of having something unique.
  4. Early 240z's would not be drastically lighter than later ones or even 260z 2 seaters for that matter. Yes later body shells would weigh a bit more due to air con being fitted and perhaps more accessories etc.. and more structural rigidity in the frame rails and rear strut towers etc.. but I doubt it's a huge difference. It all depends what cars you're comparing too. A 280z with big bumpers and fuel injection or a home market late s31 with electric windows, mirrors etc.. and slim bumpers but fuel injected. Where I suspect the lighter "240" shells idea comes from is confusion around the Z432-R shells and some of the works rally shells getting the same treatment in terms of thinner panels but strong in terms of frame / support sections etc.. some of these cars had HS30 and HLS30 prefixes where as the PS30-SB was the Z432-R of course. Mostof these cars were not generally available to Joe public and many of them got binned and are simply not around anymore anyway. For AU market cars I'd be very surprised if an early 240z weighed much less than a 73 240z.

    Modifying KGC10's doesn't seem to hurt their value too much. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1972-nissan-skyline-c10/ SOLD ON 8/16/18 FOR $87,000

    Classic car bubble

    I don't think Ferrari's like this are in a bubble. I think there will always be demand at the top end. However I love the story. Thought this was the best place for sharing it. https://www.drive.com.au/motor-news/-2000-piece-of-junk-tipped-to-sell-for-10-million-119183
  9. I may sell mine, because I am not using it (after partially re-shaping it) and with surface rust. I've found it easier to just make a new 1.

    l26 ignition help

    Petronix if your existing distributor is in good condition (no shaft wobble). Also if you want to retain the look of the "stock" distributor.. A stock ZX 1, I'd only bother with a rebuilt unit (can get them on eBay US). Since many are stuffed by now as photo above shows. 123ignition would probably be ideal there was also someone offering similar for Datsun's in Australia recently. Refer to here. Here is the company that makes those CAS based distributors. https://www.facebook.com/OneSixIndustries/
  12. Funny close to what I quoted when I was originally asked to give a price guide. :). By the way how did you find out? Did you ask the Auction House?
  13. It's turned up in Melbourne at Zshop
  14. Shame the seats didn't retain the tan theme. Looks like it has a Calendar clock too.
