Thanks for sharing Alan, very interesting.  I was lucky enough for visit Zama a couple of years back, the guides were super helpful, gave a parting gift on the way out and you could buy GTR water

Probably will, but I have to say that this BaT phenomenon of high-selling S30s (and it is almost exclusively HLS30Us) seems to be fuelled by a small coterie of self-styled 'Collectors' who are trying

Nissan has three cars in its Heritage Collection at Zama: The '71 East African Safari Rally-winning car, the '72 Monte Carlo Rallye 3rd place finisher and the '73 Safari-winner. They regularly show th

Am I being picky, but for NZ$400K should the window rubbers not have been replaced and maybe cad plate the door strikers ?

No I thought the same, also the steel wheels don't look like the original style Topy's that would have been fitted. They are slightly different and to me kind of spoils the look a little.

I personally would have fitted the OEM airbox too, because it would just look that bit more pure..

Based on this I might get my money back if I ever sell :), what great example and well worth the money.

I am glad zeds are now being valued for how good they are.

Always a good idea to keep all the original parts when restoring cars to ensure they can be converted to 100% original if needed, I know I threw away a few parts over the years that I now regret. Things like original steel wheels and splash trays. The cost to replace these items are more than I paid for the car 20+ years ago.

Ouch, I recently picked up 4x Topy Wheels (72 date stamped) for my 72 240z. Took them months to arrive, but finally got them on Friday, as I left work early to go collect them I was wondering if it was all worth the effort chasing down these parts and taking time out to go get them. But like you a result like this indicates it is worth it.

My first 240z cost me $3,250 in 1998, and it was original with steel wheels and caps! I didn't keep either :(... instead I put 260z alloys on it.

So glad I collected 'D' caps and AM Radio's a few years ago too!

We really need to get together to compare parts inventory, I have been collecting parts for the past 20 years that I thought would be hard to find down the track. I remember buying 6 brand new hubcaps for US$800 10 years ago and I thought that was good value. 

Looked through a few tubs over the weekend and was surprised at how much I had forgotten about, NOS headlight switches, blinker switches, gear knobs etc.

I think I need another zed to put them all in.

Bloody hoarders. You're making it hard for people to restore their cars. :p

Sadly I feel like I should have hoarded more stuff, with 4 240z's you can never have enough spares.

I've actually been going through my stash of spares in Melbourne (at my mum's place in the country, in a big shipping container) and getting stuff re-plated for re-use. So I'm trying to put a lot of this stuff into use. I hate having it sit around doing nothing.

I haven't seen this one posted yet


Very significant car in the USA. It will be interesting to see what it sells for and if it manages to reach the "dizzying heights" of the recently auctioned Franklin Mint car by Bill Reagan.

Time will tell, in fact approximately 6 days!

Im betting it will go above USA$100k.
