  1. $35k 1971 Datsun 240z HS30-00793 This early model 240z was a project purchased from WA approx 6 years ago and has been dry stored ever since. With its previous WA owner it was a similar story and was laid up for many years before being sold. History before that is unknown and previous WA registration documents will be included with the sale. The car has never been registered in SA. The car appears to be very original and accident free with very straight radiator support panel and no evidence of accident damage anywhere around the car. Some rust spots either exist or have been repaired badly in the past - see photos - notably the doglegs showing poor quality repairs and the rear of both chassis rails are rusty and in need of repair. Other typical trouble spots appear to be in good repair but having owned these cars previously there are likely hidden spots that present themselves upon tear down. This 240z was originally 903 Blue and still runs an L24 with twin carbs (not the matching engine) and a 5 speed manual gearbox. The diff is believed to have been upgraded from an r180 to an r200. The car starts and idles but not very well, and is missing its muffler. The car is mostly complete with original parts (seats, steering wheel, centre console, complete interior etc that are all often swapped out over the years) and would make an excellent project - unfortunately other cars have taken priority and the sale will fund progress on those projects. Any inspection welcomed and recommended - based in the inner west of Adelaide. Interstate buyers welcome and happy to assist with transport arrangements etc Located in South Australia. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/mile-end/cars-vans-utes/1971-datsun-240z-manual/1299149089?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=ios_VIP&utm_medium=social&utm_source=com.apple.uikit.activity.copytopasteboard

This car has been in the same family for 37 years and this is a regrettable sale as I am moving overseas and the car must go.

The motor is the original number matching engine that runs really good. Very early chassis number car. The interior could do with some work but is ok .

  7. Yep, I assumed that was the case… It only had one side photographed - intentionally (probably), haha. Still very affordable in comparison to other iconic sports cars produced from the same era; such as the GTS Monaro (unforgiving boats to drive), Porsche 911s etc… It think vintage Zed’s are finally starting to become relevant in the Australian classic car market, and in a few years they’ll be priced more accordingly to what they deserve…
  8. If you’re not buying fertile land or investing in metals, you should be accumulating old Z’s - any condition, but make sure you have at least one that can outrun zombies But, I find this topic hard to gauge as there’s limited historical information and I’m repeatedly filtering-out owners with speculative opinions - as we know, the Zed community can at times be a little biased, haha. Only way to ascertain the value and scope the overall trend of this market is to compare historical sales of vehicles - most important are sale prices through a recession or stagnating economy - such as the one we’re currently experiencing. I recently saw a roughly modified red Zed come up on Gumtree which was priced around $40k (I think), and is no longer available. So assuming this example sold, it would appear the market would be plateauing slightly?
  9. Whoever buys it should remove those hideous wheels ASAP
  10. I think I’ve seen this one pop up in the past before. Non-matching, but seems like a very reasonable price for a complete, and straight, 240Z. I don’t think it will last long. 1973 Datsun 5 speed manual 240Z Melbourne Victoria Price: $39,500 *Negotiable* Description: Dry stored for many years - Starts, runs & drives nicely Owner is selling duel to poor health Please Call Colin 0409 954635 Body number HS30 100465 Engine # L26 106092 Good solid car.
