Reverse Fetish: USDM AE86 Gauge Cluster at Auctions Yahoo!

I’ve posted up a couple of reverse fetishes so far and I even posted an AE86 Gauge cluster before (which was wrongly indicated as EUDM). Japanese like overseas stuff like the Datsun 240K badges or Renault 5 Turbos. So not surprisingly this USDM AE86 Gauge cluster from a US Toyota Corolla GT-S AE86 is currently picking up some serious money on Auctions Yahoo:

It is functional, its speedo goes all the way up to 150mph (240km/h) and it is mirrored in layout. Can you guess what the current price is???

For sale: beautiful Datsun 240K GT C110

Notice 2021: This Datsun 240K GT advertisement was over 10 years ago! It’s no use leaving a comment or emailing me if it’s still for sale!

The Doctor sent me about a week ago a link to a Belgian auction site. When I clicked on it my heart skipped a beat: there was a genuine Belgian Datsun 240K for sale! As some of you might know: the Datsun 240K GT is basically a Nissan Skyline C110 with a L24 engine!

When I looked at the biddings I immediately saw it was far beyond reach for me: the highest bid was already at 12000 euros (16500 US dollars).

Apart from the 280ZX rims it appears to be completely original:

I must add that the original wheels are not that beautiful, but if these 280ZX rims are fitted the Skyline C110 should be lowered a few inches as well. 😉

Judging from the thick layer of durst the 240K must have been a barn-find and most importantly the interior appears to have survived the time machine!

The seller states that it could easily be transformed into a GT-R, probably to boost the sales price. That last part was apparently very successful.
