It's not Datsun or S30Z specific. I am tracking several cars on CarSales (thanks to the star icon you can save certain cars) - it's my little wish list. :). Anyway I get notifications daily of price m

Hi all Just bought this 260z from Carlos @ Classic Sports Ex Targa Rally car (some of you may remember its been up for sale for a while)  Im  going put myL28 in with triple webers  (out of my Dam

So to clarify. 1971 car HS300561 is my car. I've put 30k into it already.  after sandblasting it required a new roof, firewall, quarters and sills, floors pretty much everything.  Have prepp

Pretty hard to find 260Z 2-seaters in any case, most 260s around are 2+2s.

Pretty much anything priced under 10K is needing a lot of work, 2+2s included.

IMO prices for 2+2s have climbed by the same proportion as the 240/260 2-seaters have.

You just have to forget what you could have paid back then, & pay what someone will accept today, or you'll just get further & further behind & still have nothing in a year's time. Simple as that. It's all to do with supply & demand. Your friend made his move & won't regret it.

Bout a year? I picked up a 2-seater 260 for $12k probably a year and a bit ago.

 

Don't think I'll ever be able to get another one for anywhere near that again.

 

 

Note the low AUD makes imports out of Australia quite attractive for people in Japan/UK/Etc. I think this has definitely played a part in it.

I picked my 260Z 2 seater for 13k bout 5 years ago. took me nearly that long to find one to begin with

Wholeheartedly agree...

 

#299, #596 and #675 (see thread here), have all been exported to the UK recently. Whilst I have no problem with people in the UK wanting an S30Z, it's a bit depressing to see them leave Australia. Less cars here = less of a market = less specialists / workshops to cater to these cars.

 

So whilst I'm happy so long as they end up in good hands, I really want them to stay here if possible. We have so few left as it is..

 

Take a look at sites like: http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/and www.pistonheads.co.uk to see what prices are being asked over that side of the pond for a good 240z/260z 2 seater.

 

It's my estimation that of the original 3000 or so 240z's brought here, only 10% survive today. So about 300, not all of which are currently on the road (many undergoing restoration).

 

260z 2 seaters were imported in even fewer numbers than 240z's. I can't recall the exact numbers now but that means there can't be many 2 seaters left in total.

1971 Datsun 240Z L28 5spd,

http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/melbourne-cbd/cars-vans-utes/1971-datsun-240z-l28-5spd/1103805449

He lists the vin as being a HS30 however I thought the early zeds were just S30. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Does look a little dodgy to be honest... Reminds me of my zed haha.

Look at the bidding history, you can see many of the bids are from eBay users with a lot of eBay history. They don't appear to be phantom accounts set up to drive bids higher.

Hi Guys,

I now own the green 240Z having exported it from Sydney to the UK in December. I'm trying to piece together the history of the car. I bought it from Classic Throttle shop in Sydney in October. I think they bought it from a guy in Victoria who only owned it a couple of months. I would really like to get hold of the Lithgow owner to see if they have any history or paperwork for the car.

Can anyone help me with their contact details ?

 

The car is H30 00675. Very original and only requiring some slight changes to make it perfect. I am currently repainting the car and doing some work on suspension and gearbox to make it perfect.

 

Thanks for any help

I notice that there is no engine bay photo, which is unusual for a V8 conversion - so don't expect it to be very pretty.

for anyone with that desire for V8 this could be worth a look.

$8800 for a car that is engineered with a 350CI is pretty good going - would just depend on just how bad that body is, the photos lack detail.

Already sold, lots of bog in the 1/4 panel but otherwise looks original and a good deal. Brown on brown combo seems to only have been available for 2 years. 74/75 and was phased out in 76/77.
