Hello,

I know I will come to regret this but sadly 7 months into parenthood and with work / family life taking over, as well as the need now for a loft conversion, I will be selling my 260z. I am floating on here before i put it to the masses as it would be great to pass on to another forum member if i can.

Bought from a forum member here back in 2013, I have retained this car ever since, continued the great work Rob initially did on the car whilst also undertaking my own vision for a 'Rocky Auto' inspired 260z. I have spent thousands of pounds on various works (stacks of paperwork / receipts with the car) during that time and all major works undertaken by highly respected Bobby Proctor of Zealou5. The car is ready to go, I infact MOT'd it just last year so can be enjoyed straight away and for the foreseeable future.

As you can see from the pictures below, its not standard but tastefully modified, enhanced and very well restored. Its an old car so there are bits an bobs to fettle with but the chassis is in fab order, thanks to its previous owner who undertook a full body restoration, and the engine and mechanics work perfectly. Speedo however does not but hasn't since i purchased in 2013.

Spec and photos below, please email - will@wjlproperty.co.uk - if you would like more info as i am rarely on here any longer. Thanks for looking. Price is £35,000 but will include a new dash, new front bumper (without number plate recess), original front lip spoiler, original seats and a few other parts. Thank you. Will

Hi Mark, Thanks for the message and sorry to hear you cant get it over to Spain. Pop me some pics and details of what you would want for it. To be honest, its probably a long shot but worth seeing what you are thinking and we can run from there. Thanks again, look forward to hearing. Will

Hi will, took over a year to get it over here. USA and my U.K. mechanic says it solid underneath and In really good condition. Paint job is not the best but it’s good and car was originally white. Full service and checks have been done. Everything working . New car seats , carpets, spare wheel refurbished. Starts first time and drives great.looking for 16k . The guy a bought it off said he would send the history of the car but didn’t. Have a cousin in Seattle who had it checked over. I drive it only in dry weather, was in Spain last week , and it’s just not worth the expense and red tape to : maybe: be successful.
Cheers will

Hi Mark - thanks for the message, hugely appreciated and do love your 280z. After consideration, im going to sadly have to hold out for an outright sale but would be happy to engage further if your zed goes. Im selling due to having to had a loft conversion done at home alongside limited time now we have a little baby so whilst i would love to maybe still retain a zed of sorts, it could end in divorce ;-).
Thank you and let me know how you go. Im sure yours will shift easy and whilst im still not too active on the marketing from, ill have to up the anti over the next few weeks so option still there for you. Let me know. Thanks again buddy. Best. Will
