Dan, just out of curiosity, what is a serious offer to you?  As I'm a cheap skate, I have a tendency to be insulting.  I'd rather you simply tell me what you looking for.

I think due to the rarity of the Fairlady, a package deal around $20k seems pretty fair. I really don't want to break the package up, but I'll listen. The 240Z needs some floor work and rockers, but overall it can be saved easily. The Fairlady needs more work and engine/tranny...but when are you going to find another???! I think that's a pretty reasonable number considering the 240Z fixed up is easily a $20-25k car, and the Fairlady if I can get my hands on the original motor and tranny in due time, will be worth $60-90k depending on quality of restoration. Thoughts?

Where is your for sale ad? I can't seem to find it. If you get the engine, trans, hood, etc. back will they be given or sold to the buyer of the car? A friend of mine in Myrtle Beach might be contacting you.

The package is being sold as is in their current state. IF I get the other items, they'll be sold separately but the buyer of this package will be given first right of refusal and a better price. I'm fairly sure I can get them, just not sure how quickly. They're several hours away from the last owner in storage, he's older, and in no rush. I'll be fair with pricing. I'd love for your friend to come look. Thx

And when I posted that a month or so ago I had recently acquired the car and was told I'd be getting the engine, etc but I'm STILL waiting. Since then we've decided to move and I will not have all the storage and space that I currently do. I'm literally getting rid of 12 of my cars and reluctantly moving on.

I'd say that your ad needs more detail description on the Fairlady Z-L (and more detail photos) to be more effective. You'll attract an awful lot of time-wasters and dreamers unless you give them a reality check, and the kind of people who might well take it on as a realistic project will be needing more to go on too.

The situation regarding (possibly important to certain buyers....) key missing parts is not ideal. I'm sure you realise that, but if there's anything that can be done about it I'd be trying to settle the issue before sale if I were you.

In the previous thread, I asked whether the original firewall-engraved chassis number was present and correct. The answer will be one of several key points for what I would class as 'serious' potential buyers.

I've reached out over and over, even offered to drive the guy 3+ hours each way to get the stuff (and he's 7 hours from me!), he's in his 80's and going thru a divorce after 40+ years. That plus health issues I think and he's just not that interested in proceeding. "Maybe" eventually, but I've stopped holding my breath. I need them gone before we move, but I'll get more pics up asap. As for the numbers on the firewall, I'll look today and take a pic if I can read them.

And there ya go...in the RHD side of the car as well. It's the real deal guys. I'm praying to get the missing stuff as OBVIOUSLY that is a big factor in the final value, but I'm starting to lose hope. Like I said, maybe once he's out of the funk from his wife leaving him I can get the stuff.  I'll take better pics of the entire car later this morning and post asap.

Looks like it has half of the propeller shaft used for the 5 speed, the FS5C71B.  Interesting.  Those parts the guy has, whatever they are, might be good for a more correct resto.

Had to do some research, and my guess might be wrong.

I really don't know. He claims the original engine and the tranny are in his storage facility. I texted him again this morning. It's usually DAYS or even WEEKS before he replies. I haven't given up, but damn! I'm moving and can't take all my toys with me. I had 18 up until a few weeks ago, down to 12 now, and need to be down to 5 or 6 max by the time we move. It sucks because I really wanted to restore these, but between the space issue and the advantage of having more cash at closing, things just need a new home.

'S30-01036' - as an early 1970-build 'S30' model 'Fairlady Z-L', would have been fitted with an L20A engine, FS5C71-A 5-speed overdrive transmission and 3.9:1 ratio R180 differential.

The remaining - splined - back half of the propshaft seen in the photos appears to be correct for the original 2-piece, sliding spline-jointed propshaft with flanged U/Js at both ends that would have been factory spec for this car:

That's an Eagle GT, a factory built Ferrari Dino replica (one of only 12 ever made supposedly) built on a Porsche 914 platform. Ferrari shut the company down because it was too close to the original (not really but that's what they said). This is a CA car and has been off the road since 1984. I'm dropping in a VTEC K20 with 6 speed. Should be a wicked fun little toy when I'm done.

Gotcha, thanks for the info! The Fairlady sounds like a very cool car; I'm new to all this, but I didn't realize there was a 2.0L version of the L24! (L20?) The G-nose is pretty cool-looking, too.

Yep, thanks. The smaller 2.0 was because smaller displacements paid less taxes

Ah, of course. Like the (ill-informed) Ferrari 208 and the BMW E30 320iS!
