Recommended Posts

Hello guys and gals,

Its me NBRautoparts, AKA Chris

What I sell is rare odd hard to find parts (when I can get them).

As sold before was my RARE clear glass 1969 240z rear hatch CLEAR glass for $2000.00

Yes, it sold for that price and since has be shipped to the UK (smart guy who know his parts)

 

Now I have another RARE beast for sale, its a L-series 240z/280zx ABS valve cover, Made completely

of plastic, from what I understand was a upgrade in the 70's only in Japan, this gem was part of my stash

and was planning to use it on my fairlady but I went with a 5.0 mustang engine.

Does have a minor Knick on the top (in pic) but this is all the damage I seen.

It comes with the rare rubber seal (still soft and flexible) and mounting bolts.

$300.00 SHIPPED...

Paypal accepted.

(pricing is based off RARE COLLETERS of our beloved 240z heritage, money comes money goes but this part will live on forever)

Please don't show your intelligence level while band waging to prove a personal point to justify your point on my items, if you don't agree with something, simply move on, its not for you.

There was some discussion about a plastic valve cover here on the forum a little while ago in this thread:
http://www.classiczcars.com/topic/57530-sold-240z-2400-valve-cover/?page=2#comment-521058

There was also a recent ebay ad for a similar part. The asking price was $550 and ended - no sale at that price:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-nissan-240z-260z-280z-280zx-RARE-ABS-valve-cover-JDM-1970-1971-1972-1973-/252459745803?rmvSB=true&hash=item3ac7c6020b%3Ag%3AH94AAOSwp5JWZ6Qw&afsrc=1&vxp=mtr&nma=true&si=ukwOSXVYy0FSfXGrdddCOdYZ3%2BY%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

Here's a pic of the no-sale $550 one from ebay:

So the $550 "No Sale" one on eBay is now offered here for $700?  My little mind is beginning to spin.  I can't wait until it's listed on Amazon for $2000.

Wait... You're saying that the part for sale here is the same part that didn't sell on ebay for almost a year now? You're saying this is the exact same part??? And not only that, but it's being offered here for MORE than it was on ebay? Really???

Here's the revision history from the ebay auction. Seems it was up on ebay for almost a year with a number of price reductions along the way:

And here's another shot of the one from the ebay auction. It looks nicer than the one being offered here. Like someone hosed it down with Armor-All right before the pics to make it look all shiny for the auction:

The glass was only installed in very early 240z cars, later when exported to the USA....slandered safety came in play and heater lines were installed.... I had a 000490 240z dated 11/69 with clear glass (sold the car years ago).

Sorry about that Captain, it was me selling this cover on eBay, just sick of the fee's and I'm going to let the account go as of 7/7/17, paying 800-1200 in fee's monthly hurts so I figure to go to the source with SOME members with Datsun knowledge and understanding....

I did over price it by mistake coming down from $2000.00 to $700.00 not realizing I dropped the price to $550.00 b4 I decided  to leave eBay.

I will adjust my price for this cover here to reflex $300.00 Shipped, I just need to move forward.

LoL... Yes is me, I like it but I must force myself to move on, as you see a year later and over 1000 hits is telling me its time to go.

I did adjust the price today to reflex $300.00 shipped, I just need to move forward Captain.

It was also used in all years of HS30 delivered to Australia. Strange I've always been envious of your vertical defrost glass. Didn't think they were worth $2000 without...

Gav, so was the glass untinted all those years or did they switch to tinted glass with no defrost at some point?  The Nissan logo and information etched in the lower left corner of the glass has a letter and number code combination.  The early US cars with clear glass (and no defrost) have the code M-214 and later cars with tinted glass (and defrost) have the code M-224.

Mike when I get to the garage I'll take a photo. Might be good to start a new thread on the topic. To my knowledge they are all clear no tint (unless an owner decided to tint it later). The rear louvre's were quite popular as the Australian sun is quite intense...so tinting wasn't that common on S30Z's.

It was defiantly worth it, money comes money goes the part is forever, never seen one since but the money is gone.

Its a strange one, I can see the value in rare parts, however the glass I can't.  Not unless you've a 432 etc.
