This is the one from last week then that sold quickly ...

Some people don't waste any time!

"The body will be stripped, dipped and rebuilt to as new and will be painted in its original metallic blue."

Was the original 'metallic'?

(within reason of course)....

So another speculator - pay me now for your car later ,

Luckily : However, Yutaka Katayama ensured the American version had all Nissan, Fairlady Z, and 432 badging replaced with "Datsun" and prevented all dealer shipments until they were replaced.

What's properly? The only way that anyone could hide the fact it's not had 5 or more roles of mig wire added to it would be a reshell. In which case 'this car' wouldn't be a show winner...

If you want to weld up stuff to look as much like factory as possible it can be done, but prepare to get the spot welder out and of course it'll all take a LOT longer ...
