  1. Here are some hasty photos. I will definitely take more this weekend! The Z is still available as I am only chatting with about 3 people who seem to match the type of owner I'd like the car to go to. I know the dust is a sin, but that's part of why I have been leaning toward selling it for so many years...no one is enjoying the car, and it just sits under a cover in my garage.
  2. Just posted, let me know if you can find it there. website isn't super intuitive with how to receive emails/messages about it. anyone wanna throw their opinion on a price range i should expect? i won't sell it for 7k because i paid 2,500 for the car and 4,250 for the paint job. but i know 15k is way too much, since the interior needs all new carpet and lining and seats.
  3. Appreciate it! I've had a few local offers, but want to make sure I'm finding the perfect new home for this car. Any ideas on what more information I need to list, or what sites/ways I can get more exposure? eBayMotors and Craigslist now charge $5 for a car listing, it seems.
  4. I'm probably a bit higher on what I want, and sounds like you didn't want a mostly-done project, but if you're still looking, take a peek at my project: https://offerup.com/item/detail/871693279/
  5. Hiya, this has a 280ZX engine and transmission, if that would fit your bill. And it's originally from cali https://offerup.com/item/detail/871693279/
  6. If orange is your style, I just posted this. Been thinking about selling it to a passionate person for years now. https://offerup.com/item/detail/871693279/
  7. Hey friend, I was writing you on OfferUp, but the messages are being blocked. I'll get it fixed somehow and write ya back there. Best of luck!
  8. Update 21May2020: dropped price to $10,500, and showing to a couple people locally this week. Hey friends, I used HybridZ a ton when I was a teen. Haven't had any time for my '73 240Z since about 2011, so I made the hard decision to sell (to the right person! not selling unless it's a hobbyist) to give someone else a chance to finish this project. Got my stuff on a couple sites, mostly OfferUp. Donated $20 here to be able to post a For Sale thread. Let me know if I'm doing this right (I read the 2 related stickies). I'm a 33-year-old guy in Tempe in law enforcement/military. Price is $12,999 because I think that's what I can prove I paid so far on-paper, but mostly to deter the usual low-ball offers. I also have a 2007 CBR600RR for sale with low miles, though also not in a hurry to sell. I'll take cryptocurrency, cash, cashier's check, and whatever else won't get me ripped-off. Hope y'all are doing well, and here's the info from OfferUp! https://www.classiczcars.com/classifieds/item/323-1973-datsunnissan-240z-rebuilt-with-280zx-enginetransmission-not-in-a-hurry-to-sell-tempe-az/ 1973 Datsun/Nissan 240Z (rebuilt with 280ZX engine/transmission) not in a hurry to sell. Tempe AZ 499999 Miles NOT IN A HURRY TO SELL. will sell this rebuilt/project 240Z to the right person, only. looking for some enthusiast who grew-up in the 70s, or a gearhead who likes restoring cars. i also have my 2007 CBR600RR motorcycle up for sale, if you know anyone who needs a reliable moto.I bought this 240Z from a guy in California, around the San Pedro area in 2004. i think i remember him being the 2nd owner, buying it from a nearby woman. i was mid-high school and wanted to restore a car with my dad (he’s amazing at doing car projects by himself). i paid $3,000 cash after working a full summer at some side jobs as a kid. used the car as a daily driver for almost 2 years in high school, then joined the military. the car originally had some surface rust in the usual Z spots, but is totally clean now. spent hours with my dad doing the following: engine and transmission from 280ZX rebuilt and paint (5-speed manual and 2.8L now), rebuilt SU carburetors, rebuilt most of everything under the hood, shined the crap out of most surfaces (my valve cover is almost a mirror!), put a different geared differential in, re-did the brakes and painted the calipers, put a new exhaust in with a 2.5” pipe (super throaty with headers, a bit too loud for me now, and no catalytic converter), got it to pass Maricopa County emissions, registered it until the end of 2011 when i listed it as not in use, got out of the military and paid $4,250 for a nice paint job with the original orange, painted the engine bay with the motor out, sprayed rhino liner on the hood interior, painted a front air dam/spoiler i bought, painted a rear spoiler i bought, all totally running and rebuilt and clean, OTHER than the interior. interior was my last project, but i ended up moving out of the US until last year. i’ve had this car waiting for me in my garage, with a Noah car cover on it, for so many years. i don’t want to sell it, but i need garage space for my new 4Runner daily driver, and i’m already listing my moto for sale anyway.
