AH!! Again thank you!  Maybe someone could make a thread special on this subject.. all the different s30 and s130 chassis "designations" it is called i believe? ( My english is not THAT good hahaha...)  

Most of it has already been covered on this forum over the years. The Japanese market S130-series model designations list in post #18 of this thread was originally posted some years ago on classiczcars when the same type of question arose, so the information is 'out there' already.

If there is a 'problem' it is - in my opinion - more of a lack of imagination than anything else. Look at the comments on that Bring-a-Trailer S130-series Fairlady 280Z auction. For some people the idea that a '280Z' isn't just *one* thing appears to be akin to witchcraft. People appear to know that these cars were all made in Japan, but have little to no awareness what that meant for the Japanese market itself.

The other end of the spectrum, called a 1970 but looks like an early 71 hard to say. Only $3500.00         In Lynnwood WA

https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/cto/d/lynnwood/7229913576.html

1970 240Z ALL ORIGINAL, un molested, numbers matching. Car has been sitting for 25 years. Currently does not run, turns over and was running when parked. Car is 100% complete. Needs driver and passenger floor pans. Needs work but car is not to far gone. Has new battery, plugs and wires. Radiator has been flushed. Comes with a box of extra parts. Too much detail to list, serious inquires only!

It doesn't look too bad.  Actually looks like it probably looked good when it was parked.

I wonder if it has a title.  Lost titles aren't easy in Washington state.  Somebody better buy it before some good samaritan tells him about BAT. @Mike

The ad does say clean title.

I see now.  I looked for the VIN over there and the title info in the text.  Kind of looks like somebody is just selling an old car, not a 240Z.  Good for the buyer.  I'd take bets that the ad goes down and comes back up with a different price and more info about the car.

1st in stock 240z Zcon Toronto

Surprised that didn't add some value

Still 44k is a lot of money for a  240z

And another 73.  A little spicier.  With a brake system bleed status report!

"The braking system was overhauled with a replacement booster, master cylinder, braided stainless steel lines, rotors, calipers, wheel cylinders, and pads in 2018, and the system was last bled in June 2020."

Too bad about the sunroof but at least it looks like it's one of the better quality jobs.

The seller seems like a rational guy, who knows how things work.  Rational thought copied below.  Maybe he's been on the forum.  Of course, sunroof delete is a well-discussed topic on this forum.  And white is pretty easy to color match. 

The rest of the car is probably in good shape.
