Pre-80 240z/260z or 280z

Discussion in 'Cars Wanted' started by First Name Last Name, Nov 22, 2018.

  1. Hi All,

    Looking for a pre 1980 240z/260z or 280z.
    It can be original or not.
    Must be: a non-sunroof, no rust or minimal, sound bodywork car.
    RHD or LHD
    Resto-mods could be considered.
    Ideally it should be driveable, if not then must be easy to make it so.

    Budget is 26k max.

    Thanks
    GT

    Your budget isn't far off my car which is currently for sale! You should be able to get a nice car (even a reasonable standard RHD 240Z which doesn't require too much work for 26K).

  3. Hi Dan,
    I've seen your advert in carsandclassics. You have a very nice car but 30K is just too much for me.
    Good luck with the sale.

    "First name Last Name" :-D

    Considering the time, effort and money that has gone into the body, the price is very low! All done by a professional company, with invoices, etc.

    Yeah, thats mine.... please feel free to contact me regarding the car. Will be getting advertised on major sites like PistonHeads from the beginning of December

    I think for a modest outlay on the interior Graham, the car immediately becomes more desirable and the price could increase accordingly. As you'll be aware, you never get the cost of these restorations back (especially if done by a pro outfit) ...

    Of course completely agree! I do not think that the issues needing work are that major, but its not my decision (only) to finish or sell as is - and my ex doesnt want to proceed - I really wish I could finish the car!

    Are we talking 2 seaters only here re 260 and 280? Did you see my private 'Conversation' to you?
     
  10. Rob, I have just replied

    I have checked your rebuilt thread Graham, I may be wrong though but does it not look to you as if the front fenders were put too high, it does look that way to me when comparing to other cars online. Have a look and let me know, I will be worried about that if I were to see your car.

    Those front fender additions look to be in the right place to me - others will know more - it's the actual ride height which needs to be changed to achieve a better stance. I'm sure Graham's man took lots of references etc before putting them there.
     
  12. I am on my phone so difficult to compare well enough and I again apologise before hand if I am mistaken. I am seeing these 2 photos granted from different angles and they seem different to me.
    Anyway, I should actually go and see it myself instead of relying on photos ;)

    Yes, they're 'marginally different' but the 'slack' can be taken out in the stance by messing with the suspension somewhat. Others on here who have done this type of work will know more though.

    The position of that arch extension on the metal wing looks 99% the same - look at where the leading edge lines up with the bumper - then imagine the wheel higher in the arch ...

    Something to bear in mind: Sometimes people get R and L sided overfenders mixed up - putting RIGHT side ovfs on LHS and LEFT side ovfs on RHS.

    Look at your two photos more closely. One of them has done the above...

    Quicker to visually cheat by making the wheel fit the arch than bring the whole car down a tad!
