Good luck, even rusty / projects are now minimum $15k+ it would appear. There is 1 on Gumtree and another on eBay at the minute. Under $20k.

Missed the boat

A few spare kidneys will do the job lol

I agree with Gavin, plus minimum 30k for minor rust work and paint. Then you have running gear, missing parts that you will need to buy (new aftermarket or old parts that need fixing), interior, wiring, wheels & tyres and the list goes on. 

Best to find a really clean example and enjoy that one and add your own mods to your taste.  

But its all up to you in the end.

I thought the same thing about Real Estate for ages. Still hasn't happened. Whilst central banks are printing trillions of dollars and devaluing currency it's hard to see how it's all gonna pan out.

I personally would rather hold assets whilst this insane money experiment pans out.

Fair warning they will cost you much more to restore in the long run than a good example. I personally look at those cars and question if they are worth it?

Since they are not early 240z's, having said that I'm sure 260z 2 seaters will increase in value going forward but you can save yourself a lot of headaches buying better examples.

Hi, Folks!

I saw your thread and i've been looking at the same in the 4,000 - 3,300 range either 240z/260z or perhaps a 300zx.

Would really like to secure something before the prices become unfeasible.

True Gav

It will take alot of time and money to bring one back in that condition. Ill take either a 260z or 240z hopefully in better condition than these were.

His cars are very rusty and in need of a full skin.He will not  go lower than 8k. And it is the son selling for the father. Another old guy hanging onto the dream of a resto while not starting it he was not willing to sell it and let it sit out in the weather.

I just posted a V8 240z on Gumtree that looks solid and a good start. Matching no.s it is not, but a better starting position then others I've seen.
