Hey all,

I'm trying to price this 1971 240z from eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-Datsun-Z-Series/153392514460.

I've gotten a little bit more info from the owner:

"The build date is 12/70, the vin is HLS3017073

It has quite a bit of parts, I would say it’s 90% complete.
It has small holes in various places on the car, but the rust was removed. The only rust in on the bottom of the car and it’s nothing a sander could take off since it’s just surface rust.
The worst spot is on the left rocker panel, it’s about 5 inches wide.

Unfortunately it doesn’t come with the original drive drain, it was already sold from both cars before I bought them."

It's in pieces and I've asked for more pictures of the included parts.

I would only purchase the original shell + parts and maybe the 300zx tranny - not the RB engine, turbo etc.

:shock: WOW Marc! How great to hear from you again!!!
I would love to zee you back in an S30 again. Do you still have #88178?
This engineless project, if nearly complete, might be worth around $3,000 if the interior and dashboard were available. Prices on our cars have gone nuts during the past year, so anything under $3g would be an investment. If you have a solid shell and the rolling parts, you can make the car anything you want it to be.

So good to hear you in here again. I still have the video of you racing my 240 around Lime Rock Park!! :lol:

Thanks Frank - Wow you're still up late helping Z fans. Appreciate that. I remember that ride at Lime Rock, that was a great day. I remember you telling the Ferrari guys that they were all lucky.... that was awesome.

No I'm starting over on the Z front. That estimate is helpful. I'll let you know how it goes. Been reading about The Fairlady Z-L and the Z-432R for inspiration. Supposedly the Nissan 2000GT was part of the early inspiration.

Best,
Marc

Do you ever see your old Blue Beauty? Do you keep up with where it went?
Do you have 6 more kids now?

Haha - only the engine bay was blue... the car itself was Maaco Gray... The new owner shipped it out to california and turned it into a show car. Here's a link to it: http://japanesenostalgiccar.com/events-2016-z-bash/
Look for Matt Kochaon’s 1972 240Z

And no more kids. The two I have are more than enough. They're doing well though, thanks.
