In Melbourne, it's an auto. 1972. Looks nice and straight though. Check out those green carpets!. and its got a sunroof :ermm: . And that steering wheel really doesnt suit the car at all. :sick:

Starting at $3500, with a reserve.

Looks more green than original to me? Is that flaking paint on the plenum at the far left of the engine bay shot? Looks like orange underneath...?

I do like it though :) A few missing parts, but a nice looker. Wonder how much the reserve is

Hey V12

Yes, I have seen probably close to a dozen RHD 240z's here in Australia which came equiped with the Japanese domestic market bullet type fender mirrors as original/standard fitment.

When it came to mirrors, we got a mixed lot here.

The 2+2 in this auction has been listed in the Trading Post and on other for sale classifieds websites for several months now. Asking price there was $14k, assumed with the plates.

Where is the antenna? Take a look at the hole, it has either been patched with primered metal or had duct tape put over it.

As a bit of trivia...

There is an ADR (Australian Design Rule) "14" relating to rearview mirrors. I believe these rules only came into effect in the early seventies, so that may explain why cars imported prior to (whatever the date of effect was!?) didn't have to comply. One of the sub clause' states the drivers side mirror must be able to be adjusted from the driving position. Those old enough might remember a lot of Japanese imports of the early '70s with a plastic plug of sorts on both front guards...right where a mirror would have been. Years ago I was told the mirrors could not be placed forward of the bottom edge of the windscreen as a pedestrian safety consideration...but there is NO ADR requirement to back this up. It may have been a seperate State rego requirement?

.....Anyway this may help explain the "moving mirrors" :laugh:

Not only 70's import japanese cars were subject to the ugly bung in place of a mirror. Just through observing mid to late eighties cressidas ive noticed they too employed this little fix-it...Probably other models were subjected..?

14k is too much for a 2+2 and although it's in good condition for 14K i'd want it to look alot better than this.

yep what Gav said. Theres a guy in WA thats been trying to sell a 2+2 for $14K. It's been for sale for atleast a year. no takers.
