I actually saw this car and the paperwork. Paperwork was spot on, original mileage. Great car, I put a commission bid on it 25k incl fees, but lost.

Some minor bodywork was needed, the odd dink here n there, mainly the engine bay needed attention, but interior wise was like going back to brand new, doors shut with a nice solid clunk.. Brightwork, save the back bumper was a joy to behold and the glass, well not a scratch.. looked pukka.

Hi Steve, It was featured in the Z club magazine. 1991 I believe, titled as "Possibly the lowest mileage Z in the UK. I think at the time it has about 8.5k lol.. It even had the receipts for ZClub membership in the documentation.

Yes I always liked the colour of my/your car. This one certainly looked an interesting prospect. Very low mileage often seems attractive but, as I say. I don’t think cars benefit from being allowed to sit around in garages for years on end without being driven.
Surprised to see you bidding on another 260 though - thought you were looking for. 240? Why would you want two 260s?

Because your car has convinced him, because he's cornering the market with a future investment.....'cos he has a double-garage ?

Was this made use of in the auction description ?

Yes but perhaps there was a catalogue description in more detail ?

Coming with an extensive history file, this lot's condition scores 82 / 135.

So what would a 120/135 be worth ?

Me too.. Was the perfect car for my wife. The Roadster looks like it's never going to happen, plus she's not too keen on a 944 Cab Turbo and she loves driving the Z. She would have only driven it occasionally in the summer so all seemed about right. The only negative is I could see me sneaking into the garage stealing the odd part

I'm not sure Sean, I wasn't at the auction itself, I'd put on a commission bid. But details were prominent in the details folder. It had the magazine and several years of Zclub membership receipts. There was also a write up in another mag, but can't remember the name
