1978 DATSUN 280Z

Excellent condition. I have owned this car for four years and driven it approximately 5,000 miles with very few issues. It has a known history, no damage history and no rust. I am the third owner looking for another Z Car project, so must sell this one. Overall condition is excellent. Paint and body are excellent. The car was repainted in 1989 at 72,000 miles in original Datsun Sterling Silver #306. One very minor blemish on the right front portion of the hood where previous owner closed the hood on the removed oil cap that was sitting on the radiator ( a common z car malady). Very faint swirl marks near rear hatch latch. I bought the car locally and over time have updated and improved a few things. I have swapped the original 3 speed automatic transmission, with a five speed manual from a 1980 ZX. The donor transmission was rebuilt and installed by a local specialty transmission shop. I also installed a set of 240z bumpers to replace the heavy 5 mph bumpers that came with all 75-78 Z cars. The car has been lowered one inch (springs) and has all urethane bushings and is riding on Koenig Rewind 15 inch wheels and Nitto NT 450 205 55R 15’s. This car drives straight and true. Everything works with the exception of intermittent rear defrost and low fuel level warning light. Dash and console are in perfect condition. Original Datsun Hitachi Am-Fm radio with working retractable antenna. Very honest and respectable car. Other recent work: new injector harnesses, newer battery, intake manifold refreshed, new carpet, new seat covers and foam, new fuel pressure regulator.
