Interesting Z on ebay
« on: July 16, 2015, 09:11:51 AM »
Hey Guys saw this Gold Z in a somewhat rare color combo of white stripes/white vinyl top, and with a white interior.
Also has a X ram set up, and certified by Jerry

$71K reserve not met.

It is a clean car, but I can't figure out if guys are bidding more for the rare color combo, or because of the X- ram

Lets see what it bids up to!

Neat car. Too bad he put all the other stuff on it. It would've been even more unique if built as the window sticker indicated...Joe

Great docs and rare combination.  The cross ram would come off and go back on eBay if it were mine. Its all about the documented original AND unusual combination.

Yep saw that a couple days ago when it first popped up.

My all time favorite color combo.  Love the golds, and coupled with white it just makes a stunning visual and very classy.  Not to mention a much cooler cockpit to go cruising in  ;)

Unique yes, but 71k for a non-original drivetrain Z????

Well by that you mean he would have had to have some kind of docs for the X ram and hood? I assume you could have run the X ram with a flat hood?

Only other things that caught my eye were: Top post battery, Antenna, should have a Z23 steering wheel, (passenger side mirror added, front bumper guards added), and some small item under the hood like incorrect hoses.

I agree seems like a bit much for a Z car with non original drive train, but it will be interesting if the bids are real to see where it goes...

It has Repo carbs, I doubt it is a Original GM crossram manifold, probably a current repo. Repo setups typicaly $3-$5K

I saw it several days ago and likewise thought it was a very sharp color combo.  It really stood out. 

Is it the color combo,  the power of the certification or both that's bringing in the $$  ???

The highly talked about rare 1/1 Evening Orchid 69 Z (over on Team Camaro) only sold for $59K after it's restoration back in 2014 (Though coming up on Mecum at the end of the month will be interesting).  The EO painted Z had original drive-train, plenty of doc's and is even rarer in aspect to color combo.   I don't believe it was ever certified as EO but instead Cortez silver w/stripe delete.

Hmmmmmmm !

I thought of , the car that not be mentioned(EO) :-X , as well, and the thought ran through my head of "rare" doesn't always = desirable .

I would not have posted a link except that this car has some bids that went unexpectedly high considering NOM drivetrain.

That and the fact the color combo may feed into that high bidding  ???

Wow..  ???  I get it that the value is only worth what one will pay.  But that just blows me away.  How can there be a huge $35K plus spread  from any other non born with drive-train Z out there ?  Is the color combo worth $35 large ?  Not in my book... JMO !
