Asking $600 could probably get it for $300.

Floors are shot...no hood or front end. Has the engine and trans and an extra set of wheels. Rockers are probably going to need replacement as well
It has the doors also

Well it all depends on what you want to do with it. If it is a 260Z then it is actually a 1974 since that was the only year for them in the US. Other countries had them further on with the 280Z so here they become rare. If the engine and transmission are still good you could try to go for a rule resto or make it your own. If that isn't what your are into just say f***it and go all out because you will be spending alot of money anyway. If it were me I would do it for that price and I would go through it regardless of how much it cost because I know deep down inside that in the end it would be well worth it!!

It's a RLS30 vin with a build date of 11/73 so it looks to be a very early 260z

With that build date most likely it is a 260Z. Something to remember is vehicle manufacturers started makeing the next model years before the year began. Nissan did release the 1970 240Z in 1969. So if it has a clean title and you want to have fun I say go for it!! If it were me I would do it but Im not in a situation to do so. And I'm trying to grab a 1970 240Z from a friend as it is. If you get it I hope you enjoy it!
