Here's the deal,

This car has been my project for the last 2 years now. I bought the shell and the drive train separately, and spent about a year building it. Ive wanted an RB-Z for quite a while, but am finding that the wedding Im planning for is taking priority for me financially.

Lots if top notch parts and one hell of a good runner. New seats, new carpet set, disc brakes in the rear, 4 puck front brakes from silvermine, koni adjustible dampers, cosmo coilover kit. rb25det spec2 with LS2 coil conversion, t3/t4 turbo, ali radiator, thermostatically controlled electric fan, urethane fuel cell, bosch 044 fuel pump, aeromotive FPR, full length mandrel bent 2.5" hand made exhaust, CV axle upgrade (not installed yet), STACK tachometer/telemetry system, VDO gauges elsewhere (currently no speedo) PLX devices Lambda wideband controller. New JNC wheels, tires have 4000 miles in them, like the freshly rebuild motor... Which got new pistons, rings, ARP head studs, and cometic head gasket. Has a new 5 puck clutch, master and slave for the clutch too. Brand new wilwood master cylinder.

It doesn't have a working e brake, but I should have that installed this weekend. So unless you come buy it tomorrow, it'll probably be working by the time it sells.

Only wiring bug is the blinkers don't work, flashers do though.

Buying price is $10,500, which is damn decent considering how straight and rust free the car is, and how much car your getting with the RB swap.

That's a steal at that price. You should put it up on ebay, you could double your money.

Uh yes man, absolutely... you'd easily get way more than that on ebay. Don't be surprised if whoever buys it here ends up listing it up for auction to make a buck.

Well, long chat with the Fiance, and I've taken it off the market. I build and sell custom watches and sales are looking up finally, so its looking like I may not be forced to sell the hot rod. 

 

 

Thanks everyone for making me come to my senses.

Is that leather or vinyl covering the strut towers? I like the look of it. Do you remember where you got the kit from?

1971 240Z - LS1 swap in progress. Just need to: get wheels, drop the car from the rotiserrie, install the motor and trans, rebuild my dash, put in a new interior plus a few more odds and ends (about $10k in incidentals). Should be on the road before my 5 year old heads off to college.

Just read the whole post. Not going to lie, kinda disappointed that it's no longer for sale, but congrats on being able to keep it. If you ever decide to sell, I'd be very very interested. Thanks!

Yup, beat me to it to post on here haha.

Ive since gotten the gauges all sorted and built ebrake adapters for the rear disks, so thats all taken care of too.

It also now has a front splitter that runs back behind the core support, which was a nice little addition for looks and function.

If people are interested at the new price point let me know!
