Official: Random Verts for sale thread (ebay, cl, etc)

Postby biggie » Thu Jul 29, 2010 6:54 am

Starting this thread if anyone finds Verts for sale so that they can be tracked. I search Autotrader, ebay, etc to enter them in the registry, this thread should help keep up with them as well. Some don't have VIN numbers listed so this will also be a way to track those.

If anyone finds a Vert for sale post up a link and info on it.

Note: don't post your own Vert for sale (use the FS/WTB thread for that), this is only for the random ones we find.

Feel free to enter any you find in the registry: http://www.240sxvertregistry.com/

This thread is also in the FAQ Sticky thread for future reference.

Great idea!

If we keep this up, we should be able to get damn near all of them in the registry in short order.

That's what I'm hoping for. All the ones without VINs hurts though.

Have also seen a few on other forums and PM'd them to register theirs. Hopefully they will.

Yes, I just hadn't had the time to do it.

If anyone wants to contact those without VINs please do.

We have every VIN # for every car they built.

What we don't have is a match to any current or recent information about those cars.
We have 302 registries in the database website.
We have 340 posts in the registry thread on the forum. I suspect about 120 of the 340 in the thread are not in the registry website due to people not posting their vin# or just not putting the info on the website.

So if I were to make an educated guess... we probably have about 425 or so convertibles accounted for.

It would be nice every convertible owner realized the value in this registry effort. It's a limited production vehicle. They are getting to the point where few are still roadworthy (almost 20 years old). They are getting more and more collectible as time goes on. The more information we can get on the current status of these cars, the more we can identify just how rare and collectible they are. Plus, having pinpointed more info can help us register them as officially collectible for a number of different things like license plates in some states, insurance policies, etc...

Please... Every 'vert owner should put in some effort to locate 'verts and update the information we have on them.

FAST found 2338 US VINS for 1992. There are 16 holes.
FAST found 4315 US VINS for 1993. There are 485 holes.
FAST found 1392 US VINS for 1994. There are 0 holes.
The holes are most likely Canadian models.

For 1992:
615 white with federal emissions. (color code 326)
669 red with federal emissions. (color code AG2)
513 black with federal emissions. (color code KH3)
209 white with california emissions. (color code 326)
165 red with california emissions. (color code AG2)
167 black with california emissions. (color code KH3)

For 1993:
1004 white with federal emissions. (color code 326)
1115 red with federal emissions. (color code AG2)
200 red pearl with federal emissions. (color code AH3)
1104 black with federal emissions. (color code KH3)
319 white with california emissions. (color code 326)
276 red with california emissions. (color code AG2)
16 red pearl with california emissions. (color code AH3)
281 black with california emissions. (color code KH3)

For 1994:
338 white with federal emissions. (color code 326)
331 red with federal emissions. (color code AG2)
224 red pearl with federal emissions. (color code AH3)
265 black with federal emissions. (color code KH3)
85 white with california emissions. (color code 326)
61 red with california emissions. (color code AG2)
42 red pearl with california emissions. (color code AH3)
46 black with california emissions. (color code KH3)

We usually refer to the red pearl as "maroon"... it's a deep dark red. If you find one.. snag it.. They only made 482 in that color.

For the record, Red Pearl is what we know of as Burgandy. Those may be my favorite color of stock Verts. Weird that I have my least favorite color.

I'll be back on the search for Verts later in the week (beginning of the month they actually make me work a lot).

The one for sale in Wilmington was listed for about a month on craigslist for $1000 and $1200. Now, it is listed at $2000. Now that defies logic. :chuckle:

Again, don't post your own for sale ads (that's what classifieds and the FS/WTB sticky thread are for).

Moving this post. Hopefully he will add to the registry.

Its because I was searching and entering in the registry long before I created this thread. I'm surprised there aren't more that we find. Maybe the S13 Vert is a car people are holding onto.

There are a TON of CL ads, this may be our best chance ad adding to the registry, but would take a team of people emailing to get VIN numbers/info about them.


If anyone needs to find a Vert on CL Nationwide:
