Prince GTB Value

Hi everyone,

I am new to this so please be patient.

I own a Prince Skyline S54BE-3. It is original with matching numbers. The wheel flairs were ruined by the previous owner. I had always intended restoring it but left it too long.Hence my name.

Everything is there except for the standard wheels and one LH guard lamp. Motor, Gearbox and Weber pack have been garaged on a pallet since I purchased the vehicle.

I want to sell the vehicle but have no Idea f what it is worth. Can anyone help.

Hi Mike,

Your Prince is gorgeous! I have no idea what it's worth though, sorry.

How long have you had it?

:welcome: to SAU!

Hi Christian,

I have owned it for 33 years. I only drove it twice. Then pulled the motor and box out to start restoration.

I still love it. Especially because it is all still there. Matching numbers. As a restored vehicle that would add value I think.

I have the same old story. Got busy with work and work on the Prince just stopped.

Now I don't have the energy.I also have a series 1 RX7 that is almost fully restored. Selling that as well.

Health issues.

Thanks for the comments

Thanks for looking Liam,

That is a different vehicle.

Mine is a Prince Skyline. The predecessor to the Nissan Skyline.

Regards

Mike

Hey Mike, this might get more traction in the classics section. Do you want me to move it?

I did some searching and didnt find much. Few similar era skylines in Japan, but none had prices.

Might be worth asking some members of Classic Skylines Australia. Their facebook page might be the best bet. https://www.facebook.com/Classicskylines/

Thanks Leroy,

I didn't realise they were still available in Japan.

Not to worry. I have a bloke interested in mine at a fair price.

Thanks for your effort

Is this car still available ? I know someone who had one from new and is looking for another one now they have the time to fix it up. Let me know if still available as he would come take a look straight away ! Cheers

Hi.

No I didn';t obtain a price. Best guestimates were between 5K and 15K.I had numerous offers at the lower mark.

The death of my wife stopped my wish for an immediate sale.

It is still available but I still won't consider the lower end of the range.

Mike,

Sorry I haven't spied this earlier. We have a number of GTB enthusiasts in the Nissan Datsun Sports Owners Club here in Melbourne. If you have trouble finding a buyer, can I suggest you contact Jason Quigg at permit-plates@ndsoc.com.au

I have decided to restore the Prince myself. It is no longer for sale. Thanks for the help in trying to establish a value.

Hi Mike, I assume you would be aware of the Prince register? Jason as listed in the post above yours would be a great place to start. Lots of really passionate Prince guys there.

Hi Blue.

The passionate guys I did speak to from the Prince club were all happy to tell me the car was only worth a few thousand due to the cost of restoration. Mind you the cost of components,If I were to wreck it, would be greater than my asking price. 

I came to the conclusion that the only way to get the true value for the vehicle was to restore it. Top to bottom.

Thanks for your input but the experts all seem to be more passionate about scoring another bargain rather than actually giving any real advice. That's why I have withdrawn it from the market.

Regards

Mike
