Recommended Posts

Just ran across this auction. not too bad of condition. It looks better off in the front than the blue 77 280 does.

Also interesting is today it list the auction as 1-18-19 and the auction estimate is lower at $1154.00

When I click the BID NOW button it takes me to.....here

https://sca.auction/en/23847905-1973-datsun-240z

That site says it is not ready for sale. The second site says they are in Miami FL., and that the car is in Los Angeles.

The SCA site has the usual set of rules for bidding, like a $250 fee for a membership. A $250 transaction fee, $55 documents fee, $25 yard entry fee, an auction house fee, vehicle storage fee, sales taxes, etc etc etc....

Got the rear quarter pretty good too.

I use to have an IAA account. They are a dealer only auction site and I didn't feel like paying the fee every year. That's why I asked. I wonder if the SCA site is dealer only or a public site. If I were going to pay their fee I would just try to re-up my old IAA account. IAA cars can sit for months while they get the title work sorted. Things use to sit in my watch list forever. If you could buy it cheap enough transportation would probably add no more than $1,000 to the car. None of that damage scares me.

I need another project like I need a "hole in the head" :facepalm:

On a whim I tried their chat function.  They said 2-4 weeks.  Don't know if it's real but they didn't say next week.  You can't "Watch" it unless you're a member.

I was thinking the same, the damage does't look to bad in the pic's. You never know for sure until you look at it in person. 

"Another project...!?!"  I was thinking that too.......hole in the head.

Might just have to "watch it" manually,  just to see where it ends up price wise.
