I await the full description, but from what I can see it appears to be a sensible, well built car for 'mild' rallies.

Ok so it's 2.8, 5 speed, Quaife and has what you need to go rallying. 199bhp at the rear wheels seems optimistic but.....

It will be interesting to see what this goes for. It needs a good look over for rot, repairs, electrical integrity (important) but it may be a nice little buy for someone - not me sadly.

Sold for £31,500, not sure if this includes fees - I think so.

Good buy for someone after a rally car.

It does include fees. I know because I bought it. I'm a newbie here and do a bit of regularity (mild) rallying and this has been bought for London to Lisbon rally next spring. I had a hankering for a Z since I was a kid and bought a 350Z when they were in production but this is the real thing! I had a good poke around underneath at the show and it seems very sound. A long chat with PO who filled me in on some history but was a bit vague about the 'box so I am interested in AliK's comment. Pardon my ignorance but I am guessing tis is from a Silvia ?? Anyway haven't driven it yet as it is still sitting in the NEC.

Well bought IMO. A friend of mine had someone look for him and was told it was a decent car.

I don't think it's an S14 g'box but you can confirm for us when you get it. If the lever goes straight down it's S14, if it goes forward with a 'bush' across it's not.

Think I will pop it over to Fourways to give the once over and fit the new front shocks that the PO had built but never fitted. See what they diagnose.

Seems like the 5 speed gearbox is S13 in a 240z bellhousing. Speedo wasn't working and seems to be a fault at the gearbox end. A plastic gear to drive it? It's coming apart anyway to get the once over plus a new clutch while we're at it.

The speedo not working may be more serious than that. I'll try to find the detail but some of those boxes have the detent in the wrong position for the switch.

Edit Oops, getting mixed up with the reverse switch.
