Seems a bit of a bargain considering he only wants £2,500 for his standard spec 240z engine or his bargain gearbox with knacked second for a mere £750. ��

Has he made a typo with the cost and put an extra zero on there?

Must dig out my samuri head and sale invoice from samuri conversions. Looks like it may even pay for my new engine

With the price of samuri, would this be a required item to go in your sam that doesn't have its original sam spec engine? Will putting this in your normal zed make it more desirable to the general buying public? Could you then call it a samuri and sell the car for more money?

Remember there's no such thing as a samurai spec engine.... they're all 'unique'. Are samurai's really more desirable to the general public? I understand there's 2 or 3 that are, others have been for sale for a long while...

I'd love to know what he's smoking really.

£10k for an engine rebuilt 17 years ago, to a very very moderate spec/standard?

£750 for a knackered gearbox?

£1650 for broken bits of interior...

The slightly rusty steel wheel (one only) at £100 caught my eye.
