Forty-five five for a  red seventy-three.  Pretty good.

30 years ago - it was a $3,500.00 example.  You have to wonder how much the Dealer paid for it, before he flipped it.

Too funny.  I posted my post and thought "wait a minute.  That has harmony01 all over it".  Sure enough...  It won't sell.  It will end as "reserve not met". Edit - actually, nobody will offer that $74,500 price, it's not an auction.

+74,000?  It must be the trailer hitch.  Or the velour.

I've never seen "GARAGE" on the ignition switch.  Japanese thing?  Always learning something.

Check out the old computer punch card though.  Japanese.  Some good provenance.  Just need a machine to read the card.

Curious... What's the proper definition here of a "survivor" Z?

I don’t know about “here” - but at most Judged Concours events I’ve attended that had a Survivor Class -  a “Survivor”; has to met a list of criteria. In general they have to be at least 40 to50  years old, they have to have at least 90% of the paint applied at the factory, they had to have 90%+ of their original factory installed parts. As importantly they have to present as a well cared for example of what they looked like when new. A few dings, scratches or stone chips are expected, signs of normal use are expected.  Of course they are judged based on over-all condition.
 
The 260Z in question certainly would not be considered a Survivor - as it was a complete repaint right off the bat.

I just checked my 68 Roadster and found out it has the "GARAGE" stamped on the ignition switch, except it is between the "ACC" and the "ON" position.  The key is located on the left side of the steering wheel.

I didn't even know there was an official category at the car shows.  I just use the word for any car that looks like it hasn't been modified, crashed, or rusted to bits.

That is as good as any it seem - LOL    There are  Survivors at $50,000.00 to  $310,000.00 then there are survivors at $20,000.00 today.

I think of a survivor as one that's not been wrecked that has original paint, glass and interior. Rebuilt original motor passes too. That's just maintenance like tires and oil changes. My opinion only. LOL

A slightly modded 73 240Z with a California Datsun engine.  Wonder what kind of parts it has inside.  It sounds decent.

A replacement L28 2.8-liter inline-six was reportedly sourced from California Datsun and installed in 2016.
