    Where do these auction houses pluck these guesstimates as to the value from! Is it simply to garner interest?

    Looks reasonably priced to me. That strut picture doesn't even look like a 240z.

    I know how much work goes into building a car like that, but why do they so often insist on calling them a "Works Replica"?

    The only similarity to a Works rally 240Z there is the red paint and anti-dazzle black bonnet/wing tops. Nothing else there - literally nothing - replicates the spec of a Works rally 240Z.

    Alan, what were other rally schemes of the period? I'm 'bored' of seeing the same thing done all the time.

    This looks like good value at the estimate. Bet there's £8k's worth of suspension.

    My focus is usually on the Works cars, and they didn't tend to have that much variety in livery (except for lettering/signwriting/stickers) until they passed into private hands and became 'ex-Works'...

    There were exceptions, as the very first Works rally test/development cars were 918 Orange and Shekhar Mehta had a habit of painting roofs white (possible heat-reflecting properties but helping with identification) but the real variety came when new private owners wanted to stamp their own identities on the cars. I'm a big fan of the blue with white side stripe livery seen on some of the cars that Old Woking Service Station were looking after, and particularly of Kevin Videan's 'KEU' cars:

    Maybe you could pop back to 1969 and tell Nissan that they won't win the East African Safari Rally outright in 1970, 1971 and 1973 with cars using Magnesium wheels?

    Hitch up the knickers sisters and calm down:chillpill: - what was/is the shelf life of these wheel?

    And didn't I see that they were being reproduced in Japan now ?

    Magnesium wheels will last the same length of time as any other wheel, its just about how they're looked after. Lots of none truths spouted about magnesium stuff.

    Not nearly as reactive as aluminium.
