  1. I guessed $24K-$28K - - SOLD For $21,211.00. Someone may have gotten a pretty good deal on that.
  2. I think this one at $41K is about right for both the seller and buyer. Given the extensive refresh of the undercarriage and upgrades. A 240Z ready to drive and enjoy in a very presentable condition.. the new owner is unlikely to lose any money on this one in the future if its cared for.
  3. My bad wording... should have said all the EPA, DOT and other Federal Regulations. Associating component parts of a motor vehicle with its VIN was, AIR a DOT regulation. It was intended to lower the number of stolen cars that were being taken for their parts to be resold. I'm sure it was pushed by the Insurance Companies and welcomed by the Police. At first GM stamped the actual chassis serial number of the vehicle on the engine blocks - that was were the term "matching numbers" originated back in the 60's. Car manufacturers started stamping the VIN on places on the frame and in some cases
  4. @psdenno Kroil by KanoLabs It actually is a class above everything else I’ve used in 60 years. For the average car guy one 10 oz spray can will last several years. Granted it is a little pricey - but well worth spending the extra few dollars. I always used to order it direct from Kano Lab’s - but now I see they are working though sales outlets and distributors (and it has gotten more expensive as well) https://www.kroil.com/where-to-buy/
  5. Given the stiff fines and prison time associated with Fraud and all the EPA Regulations in the automotive business even at the time - No Authorized New Car Dealer would ever mess with Federally Required numbers on a motor vehicle. I think the issue was addressed when the Seller Posted the block casting numbers. It would appear from the final sale price - matching vs non-matching numbers is about a $5K delta on a Driver quality 240Z today. It will be interesting to see what the Red 73 with L28 and other upgrades sells for tomorrow.
  6. Actual Mileage is very important - if it isn’t completely overshadowed by Condition. in this case 15K original miles is almost meaningless as it relates the market value of the car. The condition of the car says 115K and I think he has a $24K to $28K example at the best. It is certainly a driver or a restorable example. The only thing I see that is really exceptional is the condition of the floorboards/frame rails.
  7. Livermore, CA, Dealer asking $12k - 90K miles-no date recorded BringATrailer Arcadia, CA., 25Nov2019 No Sale Bid to $17K BringATrailer,Erie PA - George Lyons 14July 2021 FWIW Carl
  8. That is usually "age" and choke cables that need lubrication and/or adjustment at the carb's. - easy to put too much force pulling in the handle.
  9. That is as good as any it seem - There are Survivors at $50,000.00 to $310,000.00 then there are survivors at $20,000.00 today.
  10. There is also a difference between 72 and 73 - related to how far the choke lever is inserted into the handle. Both will slide onto the metal lever - but only the correct handle will line up with the screw hole in the lever. @VaCat33 can’t tell from the picture you Posted - where did your handle break? Did the metal lever tear out the back of the handle? That seems to be what happens when the set screw is missing. If the handle snapped the top off the base - that’s a different problem.
  11. Just get another set of rails for/from a driver side seat - and put them on the passenger seat. Yes the adjustment lever will be in the "wrong" place, but then who cares - your are not building a stock set up anyway. I changed my passenger seat slides, to driver slides for two reasons. My son is 6'3 and I needed to get him farther back so he wasn't blocking my view out the right side window, in addition to giving him more leg room. The right side slides were never a problem with the wife, daughter or girlfriends as passengers, nor when the boys were younger smaller. So I think for most peopl
  12. 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
  13. Possibly one of the Best-Buy's of the year. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1974-datsun-260z-43/
  14. 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.
  15. A large number of people pulled the V12 out of their XJ-S - after it caught fire and burned. That is what happened to mine - the next owner swapped in a SBC using the "Jag'sThatRun" kit. He also replaced all the dash gauges & wiring ..
