Most Expensive Z So Far

Recommended Posts

There's a video link in the eBay ad. The designer, Kindig It, has a web site too. 15 years in business, apparently, but just got a web site in January 2012.

You'd think for $120,000 they could at least show that the car drives. The video is someone else's music choice impinged on to the sound of the engine revving. Who knows? Interesting.

If you didn't recognize the lines, you wouldn't know it was an S30. The description even states that the lamps, and even the antenna were removed. The car is now unsafe to drive at nigh. I think those tiny pedals make it even more unsafe to drive.

Someone put a lot of work in to it. I wonder if it's more show than go though. I see some odd things in the description like " front and rear shock tower anti-sway bars" and " ISIS voltage monitoring and starter kit." Makes one wonder.

Not to start a pick-it-apart contest. It's up to $27,100.

For that kind of money, I would rather have the 240 that blakt out resto-modded about 4 years ago and then sold it for around 60K.

I think he had well over 100K into it.

Someone has posted probably the most expensive early Z's I've seen. A very nice project car, and it looks like they spared no expense. Check it out on EBay and I've also included a link to the original images over at Jonathan Glover Photography.

It doesn't say it's for sale, or that it was purchased for that, it's just a number picked from somewhere. Plus it's shown in an online men's fashion magazine. Not sure that it counts!

I crossed this car when I bought my datsun, it came up while researching some parts. It was for sale at 190K when I saw it, and I laughed. So, I think it should count.

Buy it now price is 130k

Maybe he revised it. I seen 120K.

Oops, you are correct, the buy it now is 120k. I was probably thinking the number 30 because that's the current bid level and I mixed the two. Anyway, Does anyone know if the yellow Z was sold?

FYI... the yellow SR20DET 240Z sold for about $50K to a buyer in the UAE. I built him a new differential, a new suspension, and sold him a OSG clutch system because what was on the car was improperly installed/setup. It looked good but drove like crap.

The most expensive S30 has sold north of $250K. None of the cars listed here will break the $100K mark.

Any photos you can share?

Would love some details on this one, or links if you've got 'em.

IMO , Having these type of Z' s expose at that coin will spark more interest on these cars from the Orient , they are demanding

more money as they are getting scarce and is evident that good specimens are going overseas.

"The Orient".

That'll be the place where these things were actually made, and where they already have the "Most Expensive Zs So Far", no?

I'm pretty sure John is talking about a 432 or 432R. Those are easily 6-figure cars these days.
