    As above.

    Just go near where your based. I'm sure you'll also get a couple of PM's from 'specialists'.

    Well, after a few months of nothing happening to the car and other things in life taking priority I'm thinking of selling my 260z to help fund some much needed house restoration.
    I understand the market price is moving on Z cars but I've really not been paying any attention to it and would appreciate some advice.

    When the car was restored about 20 years ago it was done using new panels, (NOS nowadays) but back then they were just new from the dealer. Rear quarters, rear valance, sills, doors, wings and best of all is the early 240z tailgate, all new. I'm sure there are loads of other stuff but not going into great detail here.

    The original matching numbers engine hasn't turned in all this time so would need rebuilding but as it only has 45k miles on I can't imagine anything too scary.

    I have the original interior with nice door panels, carpet set, etc. and lots of boxed NOS parts including those complete bumpers in Nissan wrappers amongst others. Nice interesting number plate and complete owner history from new too.

    So, given that it's a local car - to me (lived within about 20 miles from new) and the history of it and that it's one of the very last 1978 RS30 Z's, what value should I place on it and do I sell it with the NOS parts or sell them individually?
    If I sell them individually, that raises another question on what price to ask for them?

    This is not meant to sound like an advert but I genuinely need some advice, happy to hear your views.

    IMO you have a great project for someone with the space (not me unfortunately) and from what I can see and have read the complete package is worth quite a lot of money. If you were to sell it complete I think you would get less than if you sold the parts separately but what a shame, this would make a great car using all your parts.

    You need to find someone who will give you a fair price for it as a job lot.

    Perhaps stick it on ebay as a complete package with a good reserve and a 'rider' that you would split if enough interest.

    I bet someone is after the bumpers already ;-)

    Value - IMO when finished it would be worth at least £25k maybe £30k if it's as good as it looks. So bear that in mind when considering what to 'pitch' it at.

    Thank you very much for your input, that sort of confirms my initial thoughts. I'd rather all the parts went with the car but appreciate that I'd get more separately.
    I'll have to get a list of all my parts together before placing an advert, there's too many to remember.....a bit like the generation game, cuddly toy and all that.
    I'd appreciate some input into values on the parts, there are items more valued than others I'm sure, new windscreen and bumpers are surely going to be of interest to many.

    Bob, how about joining the Club as a full member - then at least we get something for providing a 'platform' for the discussion?
