Rare and super rare Z - parts pricing! JUST ASK your question here!

Recommended Posts

In this topic you can put parts with (real or unreal) high prices people ask these days for Datsun z (and zx?) parts..

Reason is i got a set of 240Z AND 260Z doors…  The 240z door set is in still Original black metallic without rust!  and the 260z set is with new doorscins (one is on the door already, the other comes with a good  door.)  (Not complete doors only the metal part, no glass or handles and..and…)

One time i askt 600 euro for a door.. i got questions like: are they made out of gold?  To tell you the truth, here in europe a door is no where to find… i'm not selling but what i ask myself is: what's the price in the U.S of A  on a very good door (one with no rust or dings in it!!) ?

 

Another one…  A early as new rear window glass with naturally vertical heaterwiring in good condition!  What do you think or "have seen price" .

Decent doors are anywhere from $200-300 here in the states. A really clean door might push $400 from what I've seen. So $600 in europe doesn't seem unreasonable.

I don't know on the rear glass

“Decent doors”... are the issue. Finding anything worth buying is difficult. Another member on here paid hundreds of dollars just for the door skins... new metal that need to be welded on. Might be the way to go these days.
Here’s a few pics of my luck with doors.

Hi , in Japan this shop is selling some of S30 body parts , they are made in Taiwan ? 

https://www.restore-parts.com/category/item/fairladyz/

I have heard  the  skin thickness  is 1 mm , and the quality is not meet for the serious buyers . But the shop is trying to make it better , they are now having a contact with some well known restoration shop in Japan to learn what they need to do .

236000 JPY ( 2000 USD ) for a set of doors .

I guess why they set the price like that is , normally we see the NOS doors on Yahoo auction or privately selling are asking it’s price like that , or little higher than that of price . 

The rear vertical defroster glass also will be the same price range , but I just don’t know what is the right price because we don’t see the NOS or mint vertical defroster glass in Japan for more than 15 years. Maybe the last NOS one in Japan is the one which I have got for 50000 JPY (450 USD ) in 2003 . However I have got another one from the well known restoration shop in the US this year ,I think  the  price was right for the current market would seem to ask for the die hard enthusiast .

Hi ..  Ive got a Original new 240z/260z doorskin, years ago bought it from a ex-Datsun/nissan dealer. It's possible it has the 260z partnumber on it.. but it has a orig nissan partnumber on it.  If i had a micrometer i could tell how thick this orig. one is.. :-(

Another question, does someone have the colorcode for this type of (260z) wheels?  It's a blue-ish dark grey i see on my originals.. (the pic shows a restored wheel by a Nissandealer where i saw this one.)

Thank you so much , unfortunately I don’t know about the color code for your hub cap , it is beautiful blue .

You have the vertical defroster glasses at your shop ! What a wonderful place it is .

By the way , if you are interested in a rear deck glass story behind , please visit

No no.. the rimcolor!  Where this one on the pic (from a car from a ex-Nissan dealer)  is black.. i've got some Original wheels with first Original paint on them and it looks like a dark grey, a bit blue-ish .. THAT's were i want the paincode of.. but it is going to be difficult i think..   I ask these things because i want to start later... next year or so(?)  with a restoration on my 240z early 1971. (and yes i know those are 260z wheels but i think they look good under my 240z.)

Those hubcaps i have also. i believe they came in a few colors, i've got these blue ones also. and a few without the blue, they are chrome were the blue normally sits around the Z..

Hi folks,
so when I bought my '70 240Z I had the opportunity to buy some steel wheels and hubcaps. Even though they weren't MY correct (wheels are stamped 72 and slightly used and the hubcaps are "Z" hubcaps not D hubcaps) I jumped on it and bought them.
The hubcaps are NOS in their bags. The question now is, how rare is a set of NOS ones? It's kind of tempting to mount them on the car, even though I would'nt really drive them as I prefer my Works, Wats,...
So are NOS caps valuable? To valuable to fit them and regret later?

Her some NEAR MINT ones.. for.....US$1949,-   (Hope yours are still in the factory sealed bags?)

I don't have the specific colour code for the "Black Pearl"-type wheel infills, but here are a couple of pictures of an unused spare. The grey infill colour on the unrestored original appears a lighter shade than the restored wheel in your image. Saying that, as has been noted a number of times on this site, there will inevitably be shade variations between batches of parts from the OEM supplier(s). To prove that point, I have attached a picture of four NOS centre caps I have for the "Black Pearl"-type wheels, albeit with the same part number, but which illustrate significant shade variations on the white/ivory "Z" and the iridescent blue/green background.Wheel Centre Shade Variants.JPG

I will take a pic of my old wheel color..(one of these days...pff.. busy but no energy at all..)  it's a blue/grey...  Thanks for the pic's.  I got a set of 4 wheels and hubcaps from the UAE (emirates) imported long ago and they have also blue very metallic looking hubcaps.. There are also differences in the edge of the circle where the z is in..  btw, have you noticed the lower left z is upside down in your pic? not many people notice that..

I did notice on two of the caps, the ones with the ivory-coloured "Z", that there is a gold ring around perimeter of the iridescent centres. I didn't notice that one cap was upside down, so I am part of the majority, I guess!  I had to take a long look at the picture before I saw what you meant, about the "Z" on one cap being inverted.  Great spot!

Seem to vorgotten this.. i have some pics from cleaning them but in these pics the blue'ish tint they got in the sun is not really good to see. I think the color of these rims are like the orig color of the rear plates around the rear lights of the 240z..

20200802_085243.jpg

It looks like black here but it's a bit blue-ish when you hit it with the right lighting..

20200802_085205.jpg

 

I wet-sand blasted these rims and came out wonderful..  (I do this with silversand and a special tool on my pressure washer.. Pressure is somewhere around 30-40 bar (kg/cm2) i guess..)

The lower one is a defect one i'm not restoring, maybe i could weld it but i've got already 8 of these 🙈

Maybe someone could tell me the color code of the rearpanels of the 240z ?

Hi Mart!

Please take a photo of the top cap on one of the NOS (Nissan boxed) fuel pumps.

Are there any markings on the pumps which would identify the supplier of the pumps to Nissan? (i.e.: Nikki, Ampco, or Kyosan Denki)

I have two of these sets. I have been holding them in case I need to swap for a rear quarter panel that I have been working on and hoping it turns out ok.

Not sure how rare but there pretty cool. Once I get it done I'll sell one set and put the other on my 71 once its got fresh paint.

OH.. i'm sorry if i can't answer you all but i'm covered in mails about a lot of parts, haven't had this ever.. 

Jim, the pumps are of the old laurel but are the same as on a 240z for as far i remember.

In a orig. Nissan box they are made by ATSUGI part number on the box is 17010-S3085 and if i google it this is what comes up as 1'st answer..

 

17040 59G24,NISSAN 17040 59G24; Fuel Feed Unit (yoyopart.com)

 

I can give pics faster if you ask me the pic's  on my mailadress:  martzedcars@outlook.com

 

As i have these pumps i can sell 2 of the 3 i have, they are 250 euro a piece as they are no ware to be found on the net..

ALSO..  i got a few old pumps that are of the other even more rare fabricators.. (ofcourse i can't remember the names but i got 3 or 4 (incl. the new ones of atsugi).

Do they have three mount holes, or just two??

Yes they have three mountholes for in/out but one is closed and has no thread in it.. (If your asking is it possible to make them i think yes you could make the outlet on the other mount. You need the right tap and a stub to close the old outlet hole.)
