To maximize your return, consider selling them individually.  Many times, only one side is needed.

 I'm curious about the manufacturer too but fitment is the real issue. Massaging a replacement valance is one thing. Just the thought of massaging a poor fitting replacement quarter panel makes me shudder. Have you taken any comparison measurements to see how close they are to originals? The info could boost the price.

Who made them? Any markings or tags? Factory replacements I used did not look like those.

I have no clue who made them if they are not nissan. i did pull them out of what was left of a old nissan motors blue and red striped parts box the boxed where very badly deteriorated. the lables where long gone tough. i did mesure them to my 78 2 seater and they where the exact same mesurements so no problems there.

The boxes seem to indicate nissan.  Above are photos of NOS that have additional reinforcements. Yours seem to be just the skins w/o the vent/pillar area....which is fine.

Most older Nissan body panels I have seen are primed as a white-ish colour. Newer panels seem to be black primer.

Wow Blue....That’s a blast from the past. I remember seeing those for sale about 8 years ago. I drooled over that set. Where did you find that archive? Seems like they wanted $1200.00 if my memory serves me.

They are not Nissan quarters. Blue shows pictures of the correct NOS panels. I used have about 50-75 sets of these aftermarket panels. They do install very well as compared to Tabco panels. I probably have some of the original cardboard wrappings but they're at my other garage. I think they were made in Taiwan.

Yes those do look better than TABCO. I think I would have used those instead of Nissan, had I known about them. The skin was really all that was needed.

Uh, i feel honoured 🙂

Regarding the taiwan or Thailand made Panels, they had a pretty good reputation until somethiing changed and the quality wasn't as good as in the beginning and people started to prefer the tabco ones.
I guess if you still are able to find a set of original old Thailand made panels then you're pretty lucky.

 

@240260280 I would have killed for that NOS complete floor section with the transmission tunnel. what a lovely piece...

In the original post are two 280Z quarters. Which year 280Z? They changed about half way through the 280Z series. They might have been when they changed the bumpers.

Not really fare comparing them with 240Z quarters. I don't know what 280Z quarters are worth, but they probably won't fetch as much as 240Z panels. Won't be far behind them in price either.

Can you read anything on the white label on the last photo? Just because it's black, doesn't guarantee it's nos. Still look really neat.

Goodluck with your sale.

Hey if you’re looking to get rid of them I know the guys behind vintage dashes wanted NOS panels to use as templates for reproductions, might be worth while contacting them, can probably pay what their worth /get panels back to the community

For what it is worth, I used to run a small shop in Virginia call Z-Car restorations, but got out of it in the 90's for various reasons. I have installed many of these on customers cars, and they work well as some others have stated. I had about 17 sets at one time, but went through all of them but one set. Mine were originally distributed / sold by Keystone, and it was my belief (at the time) that they were Tabco parts. As soon as I can dig out my old set I will see if I can still read the labels and report back if I can find any useful info.
