  1. Haha you guys crack me up. Do I look like a charity? I still lost a little money on the car so by no means did I make any profit.. but it was nice to maximise my returns.. You’d have done the same thing, it’s easy to sit back and say that you wouldn’t have done the same thing if you were in my shoes… What a joke you guys are! They were the most serious buyers (bar one other guy who was actually a good genuine bloke) but apart from that they gave me a hassle free sale.. why would I go through time wasters and headaches from what you define as “enthusiasts” when I had a no drama sale from some guys who were actually pretty decent!? Your responses defy logic... if either of you were to sell your car right now, would you sell it for peanuts or lose a heap of money but be ok with it because it's going to an enthusiast (more like opportunist who will make a profit on it later) or would you maximise the money and try to recoup most of your $? Honestly, I don't know what you guys do for work, but if it's business related, I don't know how youre still in business...
  2. Haha well said! How much did he pay for it 6 months ago?
  3. As topic suggests, up for sale is a 5 speed gearbox, tail shaft, flywheel, slave cylinder and all the other ancillary parts needed for my auto to manual conversion. I am after $550. Located in Sydney NSW not far from the CBD. Cheers

  5. I sent him a text with the link here. I think he has all the bits ready to go, he was just waiting for the right car. Cheers
  6. Unfortunately,I think so . On another note for those looking for a coupe: http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/heybridge/cars/1973-nissan-skyline-datsun-240k-gl-gtr-coupe-project-khgc110/1003945875
  7. Thanks Duane, I too hope we both land ourself's jobs but unfortunately, the car was sold this morning. On the flip side, you will be relieved to know that it will be staying a 240K and not copping the "GTR" treatment.
  8. The car is sold for close to the asking price; it’s gone to a new owner who I know will do this car the justice it deserves! For the purists wondering what his plans will be: Full bare metal restoration JDM fender mirrors JDM grill JDM steering wheel L28 and manual box with LSD diff. And that is it, so everyone will be happy to know that the body will not be going into surgery for the GTR treatment. On another note, he didn’t take the gearbox, so I have a manual g/box with all ancillary parts and I’m asking $550 not negotiable and i'm not separating the parts, I’m located in Sydney. If you’re serious then PM me, I don’t want stories about how I’m asking too much or that your cousins dogs sister knows a guy who can get it cheaper!
  9. I honestly feel gutted... thanks guys. Hopefully it goes to a good home and also to someone who'll appreciate it's originality!
  10. Thanks, not looking to seperate. Whoever buys the car get's the lot!
  11. Fair point and I can see how some may jump to conclusions. Not that I should have to justify my pricing rationale but for the sake of people on this forum, I will break down the costs: Purchase of the vehicle $5900 Blue slip, green slip and rego ($1000) (it also needed new bushes which I bought from Nissan at $104.56 plus the labour cost to fit them in order to attain a road worthy cert in QLD and pass rego in NSW) Transport from QLD for the car $990 Flights to QLD $300 G/BOX and ancillary parts $900 (I bought it interstate so this is including the freight cost via DHL) IMMACULATE Chrome trims from eBay $250 (plus Import monsters 2,500yen standard fee then 20% on top and postage charges from Japan) A spare hubcap I bought on Yahoo JP for $150 (plus Import monsters 2,500yen standard fee then 20% on top and postage charges from Japan) NOS G/Knob $130 (plus Import monsters 2,500yen standard fee then 20% on top and postage charges from Japan) So far that’s $9,620 excluding the costs of bushes+labour and excluding Import monster fees and postage on the parts and some of the other extras I bought including another carb. I put $11,500 as I have left room for negotiation. If it doesn’t sell for what it owes me then I’ll hang onto it and sell my daily driver. I know i'll regret selling this as I have spent a while looking for one, but I have to put my priorities straight... tough job market at the moment and realistically, I am not sure how long it will be before I can find another..
  12. $11,500 NEG http://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/datsun-240k-1973-12884405?base=1216&vertical=Car&eapi=2&page=1&sort=LastUpdate&cr=1&__N=1246%201247%201252%201282%204294966615%201216&silo=Stock&Range=Price:Min,Max~0.5
  13. Unfortunately with much regret due to a recent job loss, upcoming lack of income and ongoing bills, I have to put my 1973 Datsun 240K up for sale. I am a very meticulous person and this is a good honest original car. The original QLD owner, who is now 91, bought the car brand new in 1973 from Nissan and has done a fantastic job keeping it in on the road but like anything that’s old and tired, it needs restoration (paint work and mechanical). To my knowledge the car has never had an accident and no rust that I can see. It’s not museum quality but it is a great example of a well maintained 240k with a genuine history and I believe that it is the perfect starting point for a concourse restoration. I have only owned the car since May 2012 so essentially it still is a one owner car and while I’m not looking to make a profit on it, I am looking to get my money back and ideally I’d like the car to go to an enthusiast who will bring it back to its former glory. What else comes with the car? - New Old Stock Nissan KPGC110 Skyline gear knob (bought from Japan); - Complete 5 speed manual conversion (pretty much everything you need to convert the car from automatic to manual) - Very good condition chrome trim moulds front and back (bought from Japan) - Original point of sale brochure, original owner’s manual and genuine Nissan workshop book - I have a heap of other parts that will be thrown in with the sale of the car. PLEASE DON’T MAKE ANY SILLY OFFERS, I will only respond to genuine enquiries and if you’re looking at this car then you know what they’re worth and how hard they are to come by.

  15. Interesting, thanks for the info. I might give them a miss and hold out for a better upgrade then. Cheers!
