I am not at all current on 240Z values in the Netherlands nor most of Europe - however I do know that Chris Visscher at S30 World on Facebook - has spent a small fortune restoring several 240Z’s. I’m sure he expects to get at least $150K+ for the cars they complete.  The war in Europe may put a serious damper on the economy, which in turn will lower all Classic Car values for some time… nonetheless the 240Z’s are relatively inexpensive as 50+ year old classic Sports Cars go.

I dont know what the reason might be, but the 240Z is much more known in the US, hence prices people are willing to pay for them.

That looks like a great buy even with just three pictures.  Maybe @Racer X needs one more for his collection.

That's a classic Edelbrock filter.

I’m trying to thin the herd, so not likely.

Besides, Mrs. Racer would have a fit if I were to drag another car home.

Let Ollie Naugle have it.

Wrecked '78. Looks like it just costs a few beers.

From the ad: 

1978 dstsun 280z, it was t-boned a few years back ......

 

Looks more like the car rear ended another, or was driven into a ditch.

I think the seller is confused.

That could've been the T boner?

I need a pair in red for my '72 also - first owner cut holes in them for speakers, of course.  (gotta have music for pole dancing, I guess?)

What the hell happened to this carpet?

What looks to be the original carpet is in good condition under that animal print thing.

Yes, that is indeed original carpet under the tiger print. I suspect that the original padding/jute is also present by the dip in the carpet just forward of the luggage strap bracket. No padding used in that last couple of inches - 70/early 71 owners please take note.

Here we go again. Another one family, low mile 70.

Immediately jumped to $15,000..

 

Very nice Z, should do well. 25k miles is rare. Floor pans look great. Odd that they didn’t go with original fuel lines, pump,etc.

Thought the air cleaner was on earlier models, my Z is also a 12/70 build but has the later “summer/winter flap?
