that's s beauty, someone is going to be very happy to get it. I remember when I "out grew" my 71 240z back when I was about 22 yrs old back around 1980, sure do regret that, at least I was able to find a nice 280 36 yrs later... when I grew back into it.

Wish this was available when I was looking.  Shouldn't take long to sell and It will be a great car for whomever gets it.

Sounds like my son. I spent a good amount of time getting his 77 going nothing as nice as this and he didn't like it. He wanted a nice 4x4 truck which he now has. 3 years later he admits to missing it and wish he still had it.

If you have the means, keep it, tell him you sold it, and put it in storage somewhere. Get classic car insurance on it and drive it to work once a week or once a month to keep things fresh and moving. 

Then in a few years when it comes up again you can have a nice lunch together at an outside eating establishment and park it right where he can see it. Only tell him it's yours when you get up to leave!  If not then sell it. It should only go up in value.

Honestly, I think 8k is a give away price these days for a Z in this condition.  With no or minimal rust I would expect it to go for 11-15K fairly easy.   My two cents.

Don't forget, Kansas is way out there.  You can't ask big coastal-city money when you live in the country.  No offense kacrow.

 Keep it. Think of it as a 401Z retirement plan. Where else can you double your money in a year of two? Clean 280's prices are on the way up.

Might I ask where you got the door cards? I see molded-in speakers... I am having a lot of trouble finding door cards.

I agree with you Greg. It's, for the most part, in really good shape and should bring more than the asking price. JMO

Count me among the group that thinks the price is low. I still have a Craigslist alert for Z cars in my area (which isn't great for selling prices, obviously) and follow BaT pretty closely. Other than "trending up," it's hard to get a really good sense on the market, but maybe the most reliable indicator for pricing that I've noticed is condition. Cars in very good or better shape go for big (for Z car) money: $20-30k+; cars that need a bit of work tend to go for far less. Originality doesn't seem to be a major factor in prices; neither does the year.

My working theory is that Z cars don't yet have the same kind of intrinsic value as a collectible item that a lot of the other classic cars have. I think for many people, the value is in how "cool" they are. So knowing that you're looking at a minimum of $10-15k to do a very light restoration and body/paint on a "fair" car that costs ~$10k, it makes a ton of sense to just buy the finished product and save the trouble (and probably some money).

I bet you could take it  a CA or Texas car meet and get 50% more.  Otherwise, there's this.

Exactly, I look at mine and know for a fact I'm looking at more $$ to restore my 77 than this 76 is selling for. If I had the money I would be tempted to buy it.
