 The car in the pics looks like a really nice driver to me. For a real Z with no issues the price to me is about where one would start. If you want 100% correct a fair amount of things need to be done. A nice non Z seems to be $35 - $45 these days. If it all checks out all the better.

Those were my thoughts exactly, nice driver quality to have some fun with.  That's also where I would expect the price range to be for something like this.  Easy to pick this level of car apart but if someone wants something better you'll end up paying more than $50k.    One has to decide what they want to spend vs what they want for an example.

VO8I9DZ on the top pad
So it wasn't decked after all? Sounds promising, but if you're planning to purchase it, I'd suggest you post pictures of the drivetrain stamps and cast dates, also the cowl tag. Several very knowledgeable members here who can offer their opinions on authenticity.
Hope it all checks out!

Agree with Tim, posting pictures of those stamps and letting knowledgeable eyes have a look would be best.  Replied to your PM, sorry I couldn't help with pictures but Kurt and others here can.
