Stricter emissions standards, even early 240z's in the US had air pumps fitted etc.. Can blame CARB :D

No all our fuel lids were lockable.

Thought as much, but the non locking would be a talking point on a car in Aus

Early 240z which is relatively original and solid looking 905 Monte Carlo Red. Early features such as 2400 OHC cover and E31 head etc..

Already at $5k USD.

Surely you can stick it in the container of panels you are bringing over from the states.

And retrieve it from all points along the mid north coast when it jettisons off the side of a ship. It’s a crazy world when you get fined for unsecured load on the back of a Ute with an empty stubble floating around but 80 shipping containers is ok.

The load restraint laws in Sydney are certainly causing some stress.

I think some the most dangerous and amusing examples of goods transport can be seen at your Bunnings on any given Saturday.

If I have any loose change after buying the GTO at the same auction I might pick this up.

Great car, wonder if it sold last time? I saved these photos.

Starting bid US$55,000 (app, A$75,000) :o

Totally worth it. IMHO..

Has all the early S30Z features (not the 2400 OHC cover) but a late build for those details. Hence very rare to see them in that colour! Build tag says 1/71 which would be very last of what North American's would refer to as "series 1" even though that term doesn't really make sense in the context of S30Z's.

Very very tidy and original ? Looking car.

given what restored early cars have been fetching I would have to say that the starting price is appropriate.

Just imagine what the starting point would be for a Porsche or Ferrari of similar vintage and condition with that level of documentation, it would make this look like loose change.

Would be great to have a look at this car.
