What's a 280ZX worth these days? Question from Europe

Hi guys!
I'm looking to get into 280ZX ownership, trouble is that they're not that popular over here so I'm considering importing something from US - if the price is right.
I'm looking for a project car, it doesn't have to be perfect - I'd love something with a broken engine and shabby interior so I can go full custom inside plus RB25 it - but I'm also happy driving it stock initially. What I mostly need though, is a running shell in a good condition.

So, what would I need to pay for a running car with no rust and no significant crash damage - including in the past? Has to be 2-seater (I don't like how the 2+2 looks at all), preferably manual and '82+ with the upgraded steering, may require some work on the interior, paintjob, suspension, brakes etc (I would be eventually upgrading all of those anyway).
How much cheaper would it get if the engine/trans was busted (as an immediate swap candidate)?

Welcome to ZDriver!
Average going price for a decent 2seater 82-83 these days is $3k-$5k USD. If you are on Facebook, check out the groups Datsun Parts and Needs, and 280ZX Drivers. Lots of worldwide members.

Thats super helpful actually. I'm new to the forum. My father is handing down the 280zx 10th AE to me and I've been hunting for a few misc parts. I never even thought to look at facebook. Pic of my Datsun. <3
