    Default Looking to buy a 240K - Melbourne

    Just joined this forum in the hope that someone might be able to give me a lead on any 240k's for sale. I know its a long shot as I have been looking on and off for a year since seeing a great looking black car at the show in Knox over a year ago. I would also consider 180b coupes as well if I could find one.

    I have always liked the Nissan models having owned a modified R33 GTR when I lived in the UK and fancy taking a classic style and updating it with modern running gear. I imported my skyline from Japan and have been in touch with the agent I bought it from as I would like an early GTR but they are mega bucks. Considering selling one of my other cars to fund one in the future.

    I have restored a lot of cars over the past 20 years or so so am happy to take on a project which is what I think I will have to do. If anyone knows of any coupes available let me know.

    Are there any clubs in Melbourne that cater for the Datsun coupes?

    I had been trying to buy a sedan for over 12 months when out of the blue a guy responded to a wanted ad I put on Gumtree. Can't believe he rang me over so many others. Seems to be completely a matter of luck. Hope you find one.

    I cant find it on ebay. It must be a nice car at that price.

    I spoke to the agent that imported my 33 GTR and he quoted me a figure of around 2,500,000 yen for an early skyline which equates to roughly what the 240k is currently at. That would include the import costs so I reckon I may go down that path once I have sold one of my other cars.

    If anyone knows of someone that may want a 1970 Dodge Superbee I may end up selling that to fund the skyline.

    I've looked a heaps of JDM C110's. It's not a bad option IMO.

    This is the Gumtree one -

    The guy I bought my gtr off of inspects the cars and takes about a 100 photos. I understand anything can be hidden but this option would get me a rarer car and hopefully a good basis.

    If $27k is the going rate for an unfinished car what would a fully restored car go for. wish I had bought one of these a few years ago.

    Sorry but 27k is about 3 times more than what an unfinished car is worth

    2 240k's appeared on ebay last night. rang the owner and the c110 4 door was already sold for a lot more than it was at on ebay at the time. Great market for current owners.

    Bought a 180b sss coupe, same owner for 23 years with only 2 owners in total so a good basis for a resto, however still looking for a 240k if anyone knows of one
