Only $1,700.00 for this Solid '73 240Z Project Car in Tucson, AZ

Recommended Posts

Found this '73 240Z on the Tucson Craigslist. The car has a 260Z engine with round-tops. Needs front fenders, hood, fuel tank, bumpers, and tail lights.  Seller claims that the suspension is all intact and rolls freely. Seller will include a 4-speed. Has a title.  A lot of stuff missing, but appears to be a solid Arizona car for only $1,700.00.      

Here's the link:  https://tucson.craigslist.org/pts/d/tucson-datsun-parts-car/7083772784.html

 That one is as rust free as I've ever seen. 

I agree with you, Mark. The people in Arizona don't know how good they have it with their low-rust or rust-free classic cars. Can't beat the price at only $1,700.00!

 That's sooo tempting. Most of us already have the parts to complete it or know where to get them.

I just checked and the car is still available for only $1,000.00.

"Can’t put it back together or use it to replace parts off a rusted out Z. Already been asked a few times for the roof and tail section, I will not sell car in pieces if you want it buy it and cut it up yourself."

Heaven forbid that someone would cut this solid 240Z into pieces!

Looking at the condition of battery tray and the floor section, I really don't understand how this isn't already gone.

And someone asked him to cut the roof and tail section off.smackbutt - Copy.gif

It has a title and it rolls.  i bet he'd take $800 if somebody showed up at his door with a trailer.  It would probably fit in a UHaul van.

Now the asking price has actually fallen to $800.00 and the seller wants cash and carry. Any members in the Tucson or Phoenix area?  If so, someone hurry up and buy this solid Z!

The tires have tread.  Might be 200 - $400 right there, depending on date.  Drums, disc brakes and rotors.  Engine.  It could sit in a garage and be dream fodder.

Realistically, very good condition used tires with at least 50% tread might net you $75 a set, $100 if you're quite lucky.  If they're almost new (like only a couple thousand miles) you might get $150...and that's a highly qualified "might".

For a DIY project it has value. It also has value for parts. Putting it back into nice shape is a few hundred hours of labor, which is cool if you're interested in that.

My thoughts. From, shall we say, my european point of view. It's frustrating to see such a good shell and people asking to cut it up.

In this part of the world rust is inevitable because of the intense use of salt (past tense) on the roads in the winter.

You could restore a rust bucket, strip it down, sandblast it and replace all the rusted sections. 

An alternative would be to do the same on a relatively rust free rolling chassis and use the rust bucket for parts. Quite feasable for a 72-73 model 240Z.

It's gone…. the advert.  ?

Yes, someone got a heck of a deal for only $800.00!  I just hope that the buyer plans to restore this solid car and not cut it up, that would be a shame if that were to happen.
