Makes me wonder why someone would pay $35K for a basket case that needs at least that much for restoration when you can have this for less.
I found this Z interesting also since it had so many doc's. I thought the $60K seemed fair for what it had and needed. But of course seeing in person as Danzo had may make one think different.
As far as why one would pay $35K for a basket case. I think there's several ways to look at it as I'm one of those who dropped $30K on a basket case.
Yeah spend $60K, drive the heck out of it and enjoy it for what it is. Knowing that it's not "ALL ORIGINAL" parts (but a very nice driver) and still one day may warrant an addition $15-$20K in resto in reproduction parts. And then there's my thoughts. One..I don't have $70-$100K burning a hole in my pocket..lol Two.. I'm so dang anal that I'd rather spend $30-35K on a project and dump another $30K over a few years. At least I'll know that it was done correctly and not just shoved out the door for a fast buck. And last... I have the ability to complete a resto myself except for the final paint (only cause I don't have a booth), so a $30K drop was much easier. If I drop only another $30K, I'll have a True Z with all born with parts and drive-line at less than $70K... To me, hard to find !
I searched high and low and found a Z with every factory line part (except the battery), right down to the wing nut that holds the spare. Hard to find with so many of the orig's parts IMO. Everything is pretty much salvageable and rebuildable except a few obvious things such as carpet, wiring harnesses and headliner. I'm still waiting to see or hear of another Dusk Blue with a white top, flat hood and no rear spoiler !
