      Hmmm...Nice car.

      Some of the details you have mentioned are nice to haves but drive little value:

      Two front seats re covered.
      New battery
      New altenator
      New pana sport wheels 14 inch
      New Potenzia 901 tires
      Crain electronic ignition
      High performance ignition wires.
      Header and 2 1/2 inch exhaust


      That being said, no rust is huge, assuming it's true. I'm not questioning your integrity, it just that claims of rust free are frequent and truly rust free vehicles are very rare. The claim of original paint makes this seem even less plausible as 37 year old rust free original paint S30's are typically either stuck in a museum somewhere or pure trailer queens and the state of you engine (not that bad, just used) tends to indicate that neither of these are the case.

      Get her up on a lift and get some pictures of the underside. That's where the rust will likely lurk...

      So...an original paint, rust free, early '73 (round-top cards) 240z is likely worth early to mid teen's, more if you can authenticate low-mileage which would corroborate the original paimt claim.

      Good luck with the sale.

      Just to be a smartass...I'll quintuple Six's offer...

          Looks stunning!! I hope it goes to a desevering home. There are a couple of discrepancies that I have noticed, the front bumper is a 1973 but the rear looks like it has been changed to a '72 (no rubber between the body and bumper). Maybe those were removed at some point in the cars history. The carbs for a '73 were flat tops. These are an earlier version, again someone might have changed these to what most people perfer are the round tops. I don't think that these changes will affect the value. I'm thinking that this might be a 10,000 + car. This all depends on how long you can wait until the right person comes by with what you're asking. What do the rest of you think? Maybe with lots of people giving their idea of value Tony can come up with an average price.

            I know my '73 had body work done at some point, but, it doesn't have rubber between the rear bumper and the body either. My front bumper did, until I removed it.

                With out looking any closer than the pictures, I would rate this car as #3 condition. Looks very good overall. You can never tell if a car has orginal paint or not unless you own the car from day 1. But if this car does has its original paint it will have to be a single stage enamel paint.

                According to the "Old cars price guide" book. In 2007, this car was worth an average of $6,300 US dollars for this car in a #3 condition. You can find more info online at www.oldcarspriceguide.net
