  1. No mention of engine type and/or matching numbers
  2. Maybe a typo, but that 260Z is ahead of its time being a "1966" model.
  3. Yes, the collector, not a JDM player, took a punt on this 260Z and would have only made small money on a big risk at auction. ZShop probably tried to make some cream on Scumtree after sorting the car ? Investor may have been happy to recoup costs plus change after getting stuffed around by his regular "people" who have no JDM knowledge - then getting car sorted by Zshop. Just speculation on my part. If you start with a $40K 260Z 2-seater, you would struggle to get it to this condition for another $40K if you were outsourcing all of the work. Then allow $5K of your time managing the process and you are at $85K.
  4. Thank goodness. I paid top end for an unrestored, one-owner back in Feb. Looks cheap now. Will the prices hold once the "band stops playing"? Hope so. I think the 240Z is growing in desirability globally with plenty still left to run and people have realised that the early 260Z 2-seaters are a more forgiving "S30" even if they are not truly an S30.
  5. Looks like it. Matching wheels, mirror and rear strut-brace. Rust on the rear bumper is interesting.
  6. Auctioneers Price Guide: HKD1,000,000 to HKD1,200,000. Converts to $AUD175,000-$AUD210,000
  7. Yes, white Z32. A number from NDSOC also going in a convoy.
  8. Thanks. $40K plus $10K in rust repair is still a good buy if everything else checked out, do you think? Matching numbers, full history, one owner, older lady owner, etc Did all of that check out? I could not get anything out of them after the first two discussions so I called it a scam.
  9. I'm calling this as a scam ... it's 260Z, old lady, one owner, too good to be true. Avoiding direct mobile calls but picking up all calls from the Carsales hidden number, trying to get more on the hook. Nothing coming forth with proof of ownership or history, no more photos ... delaying tactics etc 1974 Datsun 240Z Manual-SSE-AD-7054656 - carsales.com.au
  10. I believe it's still 14 in government quarantine at your own expense
  11. hi, anyone up or near the Sunshine Coast willing to look at a car for a fee? I'm stuck in Melbourne with COVID-19 restrictions.
  12. No. It was at $116K when I stopped refreshing the page. I went back a 2 or 3 minutes later and the auction was over. When it ended, it did not list a final price.
  13. 2 cars did not get a bid. The LX Torana and one of the HSVs. Below are starting prices.
  14. Yep. It didn't quite finish at 9pm (AEDT) as it went into "BONUS TIME". Something I was not aware of. I was purely spectating as bidding started at $101K and way past my slush fund. I got annoyed and switched off at $116K at approx. 9:10pm. It could have hit $120K but with the 5.5% buyers premium, someone will be out of pocket over that anyways. I suspect a backroom deal was done with the Marcos to get a hold of the car's logbooks, ownership history and resto paperwork.
