KEN & MARY GT-R-KPGC110 replica

Thanks, not looking to seperate. Whoever buys the car get's the lot!

That's cool man! Figured you need money sooner rather than later and what better way to recoup than to sell some parts to an enthusiast.

You will probably end up shipping the car to Saudi Arabia at that price where it will sit sadly.

i'm happy to give you the six grand you paid for the car and i'll cover shipping to SA.

i'm not interested in any of your parts as i have plenty of my own.

11k is just a joke. PM me if you want a quick, no bull**** sale.

The car is sold for close to the asking price; it’s gone to a new owner who I know will do this car the justice it deserves!

For the purists wondering what his plans will be:

Full bare metal restoration

JDM fender mirrors

JDM grill

JDM steering wheel

L28 and manual box with LSD diff.

And that is it, so everyone will be happy to know that the body will not be going into surgery for the GTR treatment.

On another note, he didn’t take the gearbox, so I have a manual g/box with all ancillary parts and I’m asking $550 not negotiable and i'm not separating the parts, I’m located in Sydney. If you’re serious then PM me, I don’t want stories about how I’m asking too much or that your cousins dogs sister knows a guy who can get it cheaper!

swarf; there is a guy in melbourne who has shown me (on his phone of the cars at his house) nearly ALL of the 240K's purchased off ebay within the last 12-18 months are HIS(at least 15!) he's in melbourne, and he has been frank about what he does. quote "this is my business, i buy these cars and sell them to middle east". he buys them australia wide and keeps them at his place until either repaired to decent standard or immediately onsells overseas. when he was at my place a few months back looking at one of the wrecks i had, he was on the phone to a prospective o/s customer. speaking for myself, the ordinary guy has little to no chance anymore of getting a complete decent 240K, unless we pay the big mark up $$$. to him it's a way to earn a living, unfortunately for us it sucks big time :/ he has offered whenever i need parts to call him and he'd be willing to help out, although for how much! my point here is, i respect his honesty, he was honest enough and upfront not to bull$%$ me. i still don't like our K's going offshore though! oh, and NO, i didn't sell my K to him either, went to a local enthusiast ;)

Haha you guys crack me up. Do I look like a charity? I still lost a little money on the car so by no means did I make any profit.. but it was nice to maximise my returns..

You’d have done the same thing, it’s easy to sit back and say that you wouldn’t have done the same thing if you were in my shoes…

What a joke you guys are! They were the most serious buyers (bar one other guy who was actually a good genuine bloke) but apart from that they gave me a hassle free sale.. why would I go through time wasters and headaches from what you define as “enthusiasts” when I had a no drama sale from some guys who were actually pretty decent!? Your responses defy logic... if either of you were to sell your car right now, would you sell it for peanuts or lose a heap of money but be ok with it because it's going to an enthusiast (more like opportunist who will make a profit on it later) or would you maximise the money and try to recoup most of your $?

Honestly, I don't know what you guys do for work, but if it's business related, I don't know how youre still in business...

So, this one went offshore?

Well, for what it's worth, as I've been looking for a loooong time for a good original Kenmeri, $6k was an absolute screaming bargain and, had a still been employed, ~$10k is what I'd have considered paying for the car regardless of how MR240K's costs stack up. Money making exercise? I'm just glad to hear this cars not going to be cut.

MR 240K, relax mate. I sold my car to an enthusiast for the price I needed to recoup costs as well, the 'opportunist' wanted it at a fraction of the selling price. Sorry if my remark about respecting honesty etc came across as a personal attack on yourself, I was speaking in general terms (although i can understand how within this particular topic you felt it was directed at you).

Hey, we all have to make a living somehow, and when our means of doing so is cut off (ie employment) then other things are sacrificed in order to pay the bills!

My point also was meant to demonstrate the value these cars are now reaching, far beyond what most of us imagined years ago. Unfortunately the supply/demand factor has well and truly kicked in, most enthusiasts (let's face it, if we had huge $$$, we'd be driving Ferrari's) are/were your typical middle class Datsun driver. Factor in demand from o'seas, there won't be many left in Oz in a few years.
