I didn't post it with the intention of being a smart arse, but I know when I say to a group that I'm offering an item somewhere first I usually give folks a couple of days to respond and if no response then I list on eBay or another place etc..

eBay just inflates prices (for potential buyers) and reduces profit (for seller). That's why I personally try to avoid it where possible.

Would have been nice to list an asking price also.

/Off soap box now.

Everyone is interested UNTIL they hear a price.. this is all too common. 

Everyone wants to buy cheap and sell high, you would do the same. Putting an item such as this at auction eliminates the cheap skates and attracts collectors, you have to pay to play specially when it comes to early Z cars/parts. There is a reserve, if it isnt met that is ok. There is someone out there who needs it.

You are correct. I have two of these and have offered them on the site to avoid ebay, but when a price is mentioned crickets......thus ebay. Yours is currently about what I have priced mine at with 5 days left to go. I sale part of my stash of parts to finance new projects on the car so every cent counts. My most recent project, MK63 front calipers with vented disc has become very expensive thus my offer to sell my 2400 valve covers. Good Luck with you sale.

Chris, I agree. I too am amazed. You don't have to go back but a couple of years when you could buy parts such as the inspection light from the dealer for a few dollars.... now NOS inspection lights being priced at $300+. Amazing...

Times have changed.. i find it funny that you guys are surprised. 4-5 years ago you could buy complete 240z for 2-6k now you dont find anything good in that price range. i have a lot of customers who are surprised when i give them a price on 113 and 111 parts for there classic cars.. supply and demand.  you have to pay to play.

I like Chris am not complaining what so ever. The parts going up is directly related to the value of the cars due to the parts becoming scarce for proper restoration. The value of the parts has also made it possible, I talked about the necessity of this a few years ago, for reproducing some of these rare parts. In my original post I was referring to the fact that I have offered one of my 2400 valve covers to members looking for them for around what your ebay listing is at now with 5 days left and interest was lost. So I too will be putting mine on ebay to help pay for other upgrades I am looking to do on my car. I have been paying up for hard to find parts for a few years now. I bought the NOS tail light for my car at the height of the value which has come down since the introduction of the reproduction tail lights. Good luck with your auction I will be following it closely.

Not to long ago i had offered this same valve cover for 250 USD and not a single bite, I had a friend offer me 300 for it 2 days ago. in no rush to sell as i dont need the money and the valve cover was FREE :D. I would buy your 2400 valve cover for what mine is listed at if yours is for sale. the difference between myself and most other people is that im willing to step up and pay vs to be cheap about.. No risk no reward.

I have no problem with anyone asking for the best price they can get on eBay. I just thought the whole purpose of offering here first was to allow those who contribute to the community the chance to get it first. As opposed to some random on eBay.

Either way good luck with the sale and if you get a good price I hope it helps with your own projects.

539.9400 USD Buy it now...

In Japan I used to see the 2400 OHC covers sell for around $400 USD. Not sure now however...

Quite a few L-series covers sell for crazy money in Japan.

The seller did offer it me for $750.  I'd like one but not at that price.

There's a value to every person of every part,  my car, even being an early one didn't come with the 2400cc valve cover, being chassis number 12000, 10/70 build.

You decide what its worth, in this case, a couple of bidders really wanted it, other times they've sold for $300ish.  which is its value to me. 

Above that, i'd just buy a new Kameari one, as to me I can't see the value.

Jason my car is HS30 00150 and was built around September / October 1970 also. So it actually doesn't have the cover. I believe the cut off date is around July/August 1970.

Australian delivered 240z's only got these up until around chassis no. 100 or so.. They are getting harder and harder to find. Like any early S30Z part now.

That's it, not every early car had them fitted.  They're just not worth the money some people are asking and getting to me.

I'd prefer to put that $700 to a nice brake kit to go under 14" wheels.
