Why So Many Project/Parts Zcars For Sale?

The first car has too much iceberg showing-even as a non running "6" with no title and brand new 8 year old tires!

Not enough to get me to swap $650(incl.travel exp.) and the better part of a couple of days.

Too much project for too much money-without considering the time and effort in going to get it.

I bought a complete 280Z 2+2 with flawless mags(but flat tires), a great front clip and a freshly rebuilt 5 speed, and a 60k engine for a great deal less than that recently, and only had $1.78 in expenses and 2 hours in the tow.

Perhaps, but they are very 'period' and will look just right on a mostly stock Series I.

At least, they would to me, but everyone is different.

Arne,

I think Libra-type wheels look great on a first gen Z, just wish they came in 15x7. Not fugly at all.

The Libra or at least 'Libra type' wheels were the hot setup on Z's as well as other Datsuns back in the day. I had them on my white 510. They were popular then probably because that's the type of wheel that was on the BRE cars.

Fun,

I agree, the brown one looks like the best value for a project (at just $1,280.00 with only 17 hours remaining at the time of this post). Needs a new set of floor pans, weatherstripping and some TLC.

3rd Wife......One Z

A few years ago the wife was giving me crap about my 73 Z taking up room in the garage. And I promptly reminded her that it has already outlasted 2 wives. To which she replied....well then "go do what it takes to get it running"

And now about 5 years later it is just about done.....
