    These cars a GOLD here in Australia now, you'd want to be offering some serious money as they don't go cheap anymore.

    An excellent restored car? $20k easy...a rusty coupe, $3k (apparently - look at eBay).

    Three times as much Swarf??? You found a sympathetic Sheikh?

    Driveable doesn't mean much as the running gear has so little value.
    A good body and interior is really special, and overseas demand has driven the price up a fair bit, but not to the extent of 240ks.
    An overall ok car... $1000 bargain - $3000 ok - $4000 too much.
    A super clean car... $3000 to $4000.

    I had a go at selling my c210 a year back, couldn't get anywhere near decent coin for it.

    Well this one is literally one owner, lil old lady bought it in 78 and has had it since.

    She stopped driving about two months ago and is thinking of selling. The brief look I've seen it's an auto L24 and is completely original. I'd driven past it for years before one day I paid a bit more attention when I stepped up the search for a c110.

    Thats for C210's right?

    C110 prices are more like:
    A total rust bucket $1000 - $3000
    An overall ok car... $4000 - $8000
    A super clean car... $8000+

    Absolutely.
    Despite the similar running gear, weight, size, and shape, a C210 is likely to fetch half of a 240K in same-same condition, and the poor old ADM MR30 half of the c210 again.
    This has very much to do with overseas demand.
    If that C210 is clean and reasonably priced snap the thing up. It'll never go searching for a home for long.

    Truthfully, there's plenty of well restored C110/C210 in Kuwait, UAE, and Saudi Arabia that don't get turned into burnout machines as well...

    They fetch some amazing money. There wouldn't be a car in that lot going for under 15K.

    Yet I get the impression (especially from the $20k comment) that the market is no higher than it is locally, so why are people bothering to steal all our cars and send them to the Middle East? The big money for C110's looks to be USA and Japan, from what I can see. I have seen several amazing C110 Coupe's on the market for ~$60k in Japan, the USA will pay $20k's no problem. I was not intending to go quite this high, but did have $15k to spend...a car didn't arrive in time, unfortunately.

    The market is high for LHD cars, RHD cars are used for parts, and therefore aren't worth as much to them.

    They want our RHD cars for parts. They cut them up and stuff as many as they can into a shipping container. Apparently its not allowed for them to convert a car to LHD legally so they will stripped and cut up for parts or possibly use the id of a wrecked LHD car to illegally convert it.

    This was the prices they were selling for 6 years ago (this post from 2006). Anybodies guess what they are selling for now.

    more eventhough it has some rest and missed many parts.

    You know those guys whom go to Australia and pay you hundreds of dollars they
    will pay thousands of them if your cars are LHD, cause we can not drive
    them here in GCC countries (GCC means Gulf Counsol Coporation including
    six Arab countries ) what we do we just cut the car into tow parts and
    ship it otherwise we can not inter it to our countries
    !!!! our trafic office
    in all GCC countries are so tough... then we start selling them as a spare parts ( yea it is a profitable challenge) we brought almost all the 240Ks in Europe (about 60 pcs from Germany,11 pcs Portugal,10 pcs Holland
    5 pcs Finland and .....) and about 300 pcs from Austrailia what to do you
    are accepting the offer ........
    our market prices nowadays are as follows (2006)
    1- Europian 240K sedan with Skyline emblem good codition $ 18000
    2- Europian 240K Coupe with Skyline emblem GC $ 12000
    4- Europian 240K sedan with DATSUN emblem GC$ 13000
    5- Europian 240K Coupe with DATSUN emblem GC $ 9000
    6- UK, Australian, Newz, Japanese 240K sedan GC $ 8000
    7- UK, Aus, Nz, Jp 240K coupe $ 6000
    8- GCC 240K sedan GC $ 22000
    9- GCC 240K coupe GC $ 18000

    GCC means the car was imported to our pretty hot countries with
    ( A/C , Skyline badge on fender , steering wheel center, dashbord, at rear
    between the tails, Steel distinguished rims and so and so)
    sorry I wrote to much later I will show you some photos from my yard
    which has C110 & C210 all of them KHLGC110 005019 but now I lost my
    Digital Camera and thank you very much brother Austrailian and whom others
    and please forgive us about what we did, BTW soon or later you will see no
    C110 or C210 240Ks running in your street

    ( 90% ) of ur 240Ks r stripped for parts
    nowadays we r searching in Europe.... we got about 20 pcs
    from Germany , 5 finland , etc ofcourse they are LHD
    I inviting u all guys to visited middle east to se our Ks
    we have about 300 C110 ( 270 pcs in Kuwait and about
    350 C210 250 in Kwt )
    so don't miss the chance to see especially in 25 and 26 Feb,

    A good 240k RHD can always go to the UAE, get restored and rego as RHD, converted to LHD, driven to Kuwait and reregistered as LHD. Legally, from what I hear.
    A 240K would have to be appalling to get half cut these days, but C210 and 280zx are most likely to get chopped up as spares.

    I've never really understood why Japan doesn't import the Australian 240k back to Japan. Maybe their customs/import laws are a dog. Looking at Yahoo auctions Japan a good c110 goes for similar money to the middle east, but I've yet to ever hear of one going 'home'.

    They don't sell back to Japan often because of their tight import laws on old cars. Registering an old car in Japan is very expensive (their govt wants rid of the old fleet, not to keep it!)

    A 240K coupe in NZ needing resto recently sold for over $10,00 NZ
    A 240K sedan sold back to Japan last year for $20,000 NZD however that was mini tubbed and had a full panel and paint.

    I often wonder what cars like ours will be worth when complete. Not that I'd sell it.
