  2. Up for sale and looking for feedback on value before listing. I'm thinking $5K. On the mark? Australian delivered 5-speed manual. Respray looks good from afar, drives well, but interior butchered and a little rust in the usual places; behind battery on firewall and small spots on the floor under passenger and driver's foot. Previous owner resprayed all visible areas but left rust in places such as door internals etc. I have many detailed photos I can email or SMS a link to and report from Z specialist with high resolution images of rust spots. Just about everything is functional outside of radio, volt gauge & spotlights which may be related to a possible earth somewhere in the dash, which as you can see, was resprayed black. There are more details in the report which I can share. Sadly, the gloriously loud 80's red and burgundy interior is mostly gone. Car is in East Warburton (80 kms east of Melb CBD) where there is a hoist for inspection. I received this car as the beginning of a restoration project but with a Z32 and S30 to drive and 4 bikes to ride, time to get realistic and move it on. Not registered and will not come with a RWC.
  3. I read that it was sold in OCT 2018
  4. Apologies, should have posted in "Cars For Sale (3rd Party Sites)" back in March 18th.
  5. Hi to all, wondering why this one hasn't sold yet? Looks ok. Anyone seen it? https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/new-farm/cars-vans-utes/1972-datsun-240z-coupe/121287642
  6. Spoke to Graham this morning and he tells me that the car sold over the weekend. An excellent buy to the lucky new owner.
  7. Yes. I should have bought it in 2015 when GCM bought it. My beautiful wife was arguing the point that having just come back from touring central Australia in a Subaru and Jayco Swan, I didn't have a job or much money or any real prospects - a few points hard to argue with. I followed that car on @matt drago website for some time. Spoke to him at the time, price was fair. It came up 2 years later and I thought I had it. I was making transport plans when they delivered the bad news. Went to a lawyer. FYI - If an organisation provides you with an invoice for your deposit and they have an LMCT license, then that paid invoice is still legally just a letter of offer unless it has been signed off by a director. It's the game they play to get the highest amount. The things you learn. Anyway, it all ended well.
  8. Thanks. I'll get another opinion regarding rust. However the interior was butchered some time ago. A previous owner has repainted that gloriously loud RED interior, installed leather seats that sit too high and covered everything else. Some people can't appreciate genuine beauty the way its maker intended.
  9. I have been stalking this forum for years and have been admiring Z cars since I was a teenager in the 80's when older guys were buying them second hand. I would only dream of owning one. I'm sure it's a story repeated many times. I started looking for a 240Z over 5 years ago and even bought one only to be shafted by Gosford Car Museum taking my deposit and then selling it on me. I missed out on that same silver 240Z twice and after a few false starts and distractions, I ended up with 1973 240Z (113) manual #102924 with original delivery paperwork. In addition, there's a lovely Z32 NA manual in the collection with original 96,000kms and I inherited a 280ZX which looks good, drives great but a rust bucket underneath. Not sure what I'll do with the 280ZX yet as it is not feasible to repair for a RWC. Any suggestions? Might have to make space soon ….
  10. Welcome. We bumped into each other at the Z Shop a few weeks back. Took some photos of your car.
  11. Sold For $USD48,000 On 14/FEB/19 ~$67,000 AUD.
  12. First time poster, long time reader. I had a look at this project last night. Owner is genuine (a retired car man), car is terrific with just a little rust in the doors. Everything else is structurally excellent with many genuine Nissan parts to complete it. If you are willing to finish it, you will end up with a great 260Z 2-seater - the glass is half full. If you run these things from a spreadsheet (like me - sorry guys) then the glass is half empty having to pickup a project mid-way. It needs a LOT of time & money but plenty of upside if you are willing to roll your sleeves up now and not cost your own time. PS. I'm looking for a clean 260Z 2-seater, original matching numbers, Oz delivered, manual. (The green one Curtis had was sold.)
