As a rough guess readers, what do we think its worth, as a guess looking at it externally, imagine the engine hasn't seized but will evetually turn over, the interior is rough but there and the rot doesn't lead to too much chassis work?

Guestimations?

Hi Jim, this looks like a total rust bucket by looking at the pictures
Are you planning on purchasing it for parts ? If so please email me !! I am interest in the rear tail lamps if you are willing to sell them to me. Norm.

I,ve seen one in worse order, quite recently (see Rob Gaskin,s......Looking for 260z Owner thread. That one started up quite easily and ran like a dream. This Samuri, with it,s colour,s etc. could have an interesting history , in which case,worth doing up!Check under the bonnet for Spike Anderson inner wing badge.if it,s just a rust bucket then buy the lights!...........................DJZ 60.

I love pictures like this!! I could spend hours in scrap yards (and often have!), prefer them to showrooms. Just look at the plants around the sills, wheels etc. and that rear wing is awesome, fantastic pictue. It must feature on the cover of our mag one day and what 'provenance'.

This car must not be left any longer, how about a club sponsored project to bring it back to life and then sold on as a raffle prize?

Seriously, where is it, I'd love to see the condition for myself.

If the board over the sun roof (although supprised it has one) is anything to go by its probable been letting in water for quite a few years. So the floors will be totaly nacked. If anyone tryes to restore it, all power to them I hope they a big wallet.

If some one decides to break it is there anychance of the window door frames and the quater light serounds. One of the previous owners of my car decided to black all the crome out and its proving a nightmare to clean up.

Looking back at Jims original post, He seems to be asking if anyone out there KNOWS anything about the car. I dont see any requests for buyers or ideas what to do with it. He's not asking if you would all like a bus trip to see it either.
Now I know that we are all a bit jealous cos Jim found it and not us (well I certainly am!!!) but knowing Jim as I do there is no way he will be telling us where it is , sharing a joint build with us , or anthing else as silly,so lets just concentrate on trying to find some HISTORY about it and leaveJim to enjoy his new found treasure in peace!!!
