My Z Cars

  • About My Cars
    '71 240Z: Purchased in AZ in 2007. Rebuilt original matching engine. 904 White with rare Blue interior. Professional bare metal paint restoration, refreshed interior, re-chromed bumpers, etc. This car was my third refresh project since 2004. Previously, my son and I refreshed a '71 918 Orange/blk int as well as a '72 904 White/blk int and both of these cars also had original matching engine numbers. Presently, my latest '71 is the only Z I have at the present time. I had a '72 while I was in college in the late '70s & early '80s and my wife had a '79 280ZX when I first met her through the ea

    #305 on Bring a Trailer

    Good to hear from you, Chris! I'm glad to hear that #305 arrived in the Netherlands and is in better shape than you expected!

    1970 240Z on CL in Denver-Only $1,500.00

    OK, I now have an update on the VIN. The seller finally heard back from the buyer of the car and sent me a text message stating that the VIN is HLS30-02434. I texted him back, thanking him and I also asked him if the buyer was from here in the metro Denver area, and he said yes. Do any of you members from the Denver area know who bought the car? Whoever purchased the car, I sure hope they restore it and not part it out.

    I texted with the seller last night a while after I started this thread. He told me that the the transaction was finalized yesterday. I noticed the car's '2400' valve cover and asked him if he knew the VIN number. He said that he didn't pay much attention to the VIN on the title, but he would contact the buyer and get back to me today. Since I had not heard back from him today, I sent him a text message about an hour and a half ago, asking if he had a chance to call the buyer, but I haven't received a response yet. Once I hear back from him, I will post the VIN on this thread.

  7. Hi,  Do you still have the 240Z rear license plate light?  Please let me know when you get a chance.

      Sorry, sold the license plate light but have a 280z license plate light which is slightly larger.

    1972 240Z Sells for $37K at Barrett-Jackson Auction

    With this in mind, the seller of the '73 240Z that sold yesterday at Barrett-Jackson for $20,900.00 including buyer fees (pictured below) would have probably done better on Bring a Trailer or eBay, especially when you consider the seller fees BJ charges. On the other hand, the seller of the '72 240Z was very fortunate to get the $37K less the fees. There's no way that the '72 Z would sell for $37K on eBay or BaT.

    1972 240Z Sells for $37K at Barrett-Jackson Auction

    I believe that Barrett-Jackson charges both the seller and the buyer 5% each, but I could be wrong.

    1972 240Z Sells for $37K at Barrett-Jackson Auction

    I'm surprised that the car didn't sell for more money than the $20,900 including the 10% Barrett-Jackson fees. It looks to be a very clean and original car. It could be the bright color of the '72 that sold last night that brought more money. I know when watching the broadcast last night of the '72, Rick Debruhl mentioned that there was a bidding war going on between 2 bidders. That's usually all it takes to get the price to rise.

    1972 240Z Sells for $37K at Barrett-Jackson Auction

    The $40,700.00 includes the Barrett-Jackson 10% fee of $3,700.00. The winning bid was $37,000.00

    1972 240Z Sells for $37K at Barrett-Jackson Auction

    Did anyone catch this auction on Discovery or Velocity last night? It was the first time I have ever seen a 240Z auction televised at Barrett-Jackson before. Rick Debruhl talked about how "the 240Z pretty much single-handily almost killed the British sports car world". Mike Joy was on the stage with the car and talked about how the car was "restored to a high standard". Mike also pointed out that this '72 had the earlier 2400 OHC valve cover that came on the first 8000 Zs and that on eBay that you would pay up to $600.00 for one. Both of them seemed enthusiastic about the car and 240Zs in general. I thought it was pretty cool to finally see a 240Z auction televised on Barrett-Jackson and go for a good amount of money (even with the half-dash cap ).

  14. It's tough to tell by the picture how much the fire "tweeked" the 2 cars and if the heat compromised the structural integrity of them. But Nissan certainly "tweeked" the beautiful S30's original look when they decided to offer the 2+2 260Z and then again on the 280Z . I don't want to offend any of the 2+2 folks out there, but not a good look in my opinion. But even after being burnt to a "crisp" the original S30's shape still looks beautiful to me.
