Looking for 240, 260, or 280zs in the $500-$5000 range.

Recommended Posts

About the only thing you'll find in that range is a parts car.  I have seen some really basket cases bring more than that lately. Good luck

What are your plans?  Why not a 280Z?

I suppose I could work with it. I really want an s30 chassis and I was hoping to not have to do the patchwork after removing the bumpers.

You're not going to find much in that price range that doesn't have a whole lot more work to do than patching 280Z bumper shock holes.  Good luck though.

Writing more words will get more interest.

And thats about right. You need to spend more to get something descent.

Do you think id be better off finding something in my price range if I were to start shopping 280s?

No. I did a quick look and didn't see anything under 6k. And its kinda rough looking. Maybe do a search for 280zx? Even then I doubt it.

I'm definitely looking for a project car. Nothing that would be drivable right away. That's why I hoped to find something a lot cheaper.

Haha, kinda figured you'd shrug your shoulders.

I'm a fan of all the Z cars. I have my favorites though. I draw the lines with the "sleds" (2+2)!

Yes but so does everyone else and a lot of those guys have more money than you and meLOL

280 s are great cars, are superior to the 240s in many ways and the prices are still reasonable.

I'm pretty dissappointed. Just recently, someone offered to sell me a 240 in decent condition with minimal rust for $815. I then came to find out that he lost the title. 🙄

Looks like a great project! But it says it’s an automatic. Plus, I’m in Ohio. On the opposite side of the country. Hah.

Apply for a new title ! Got a bill of sale and get the car - especially if it’s decent. I got a 1970 that way. I don’t care if I don’t have the original title - ITS MINE !

Your going to have to make concessions to get an early one. I guess I won’t offer my 71 with no title and needing bodywork .
