Just curious. If it was a real low number car I could see it being worth it. I hate seeing any Z get parted out but from the looks of the quarters there is a lot more rust in there.

Hard to say. No doubt it's going to need some significant work, but from what I can see, I don't think it's beyond repair at all. Whether it's "worth it" depends on the owner, and also what standard it is being done to.

I texted with the seller last night a while after I started this thread. He told me that the the transaction was finalized yesterday. I noticed the car's '2400' valve cover and asked him if he knew the VIN number. He said that he didn't pay much attention to the VIN on the title, but he would contact the buyer and get back to me today. Since I had not heard back from him today, I sent him a text message about an hour and a half ago, asking if he had a chance to call the buyer, but I haven't received a response yet. Once I hear back from him, I will post the VIN on this thread.

So the valve cover alone was $300-$500 of the car's value.

I agree the car is salvageable but it becomes more economically practical if the VIN is lower

OK, I now have an update on the VIN. The seller finally heard back from the buyer of the car and sent me a text message stating that the VIN is HLS30-02434.  I texted him back, thanking him and I also asked him if the buyer was from here in the metro Denver area, and he said yes.  Do any of you members from the Denver area know who bought the car?  Whoever purchased the car, I sure hope they restore it and not part it out.

With the price of Zs today, especially early examples, I wouldn't be surprised if it's being restored. I hope so, anyway.

Good for you man. Score!!

 

 I had a pretty good score last year as well. Picked up a running driving rust free series 1 240z. (Early 71)  12/70.   Got it from a local tow yard for $500. Still can't believe it.

Hi Steve, Thanks. I've been going slow, title was so  clear it was invisible. Just got clean title last week. If only this car could talk, there is a heck of a story in there some where. Overall great shape, major rust is confined to rear wheel arches and down to back half of rockers Front 8 inches of frame rails and radiator support have been worked on. And rear was tagged slightly, but nothing that can't  be fixed, all panels have great gaps.Getting ready to pull motor and trans. to go over. Will keep posted.
