1970 240Z in SD. Surprised if this lasts one day.

Recommended Posts

Congrats, you made sure that it will last much more than a day.  Probably months or years now.  Greedy.  Looks like it's between a 4 and a 3.

I thought SD was South Dakota.

This might be a clue - "California Datsun Series one 240z justice."  Beware...

I don't think the reference was to "California Datsun"... more that it was a California model Datsun series one

But what's happened, with the price bloat, fits the model.  Kidding, but not kidding.  Wouldn't be a surprise if URGELIS was behind it.

I got your sarcasm... and enjoyed it. I should have assumed the poke!

Now it is more reasonably priced, was $22K.  The engine bay is pretty impressive on this one

What was the original price?  Never mind, I'm guessing $22,000 was original and you thought that was too low.  You think that that car is almost to Excellent level.  Pump,  pump, pump it up... (90's flashback).

I like the fact that the engine has not been messed with (much) and the 77K miles is probably legit based on the engine pic. Also looks very original except for a few minor details. (Granted the over all body pics and underside pics are poor and would effect the value)  This is exactly the type of car that I look for when doing a restoration.  It would be worse if it had a cheap $1K paint job and looked pretty pretending to be a Category 2, hiding what is underneath.  Too often this is what is sold in most cases.   I rarely buy a pretty face.  I want a complete, hardly touched package complete with warts.

And Hagerty is so out of touch with the Z community.  There are 1970 Z's selling for $100k and over among private parties.  Let them value the US muscle cars; because they are a bit behind the times with the Japanese cars.

I was going to post the CL ad Reply thing for a snarky response but it didn't get through.  $100,000 between privates?  For a 240Z?  Holey Moley.

I would not be surprised if really low number pristine cars were trading close or in that six figure range. It's only a matter of when not if.

$32K is at least $10k too high for this car. The seller is going to have trouble selling the car at that price. Here's a '70 that isn't as original, but has a lower VIN (#1578) and is currently at a far better price on eBay:

The CL ad looks legit.  But.  The phone number comes up as Skykomish Lodge in Washington state.  Beware.  Might be a phisherman.  Or it might be a mistake.  John?

Good luck to anyone who tries to buy it.

Hah! I wish! It seems to have ended yesterday, I would have already shared it here lol. Way too much rain in Central Texas to do anything right now! Just tending to the chickens and fixing up holes in the house...

Sadly no generous soul showed up with 12k... Maybe next time?
