Features and Specifications
1978 Datsun Z-Series
Presented here for your consideration is all original low miles, last year 1978 Datsun 280Z. Straight 6, fuel injected, 5 speed manual transmission, shifts smooth, this car runs great with only 79,000 miles on the odometer (unverified). It starts first time every time and has a peppy 170HP engine. It is a great car to drive and the sound of a straight 6 engine is unmistakably adorable. The title is clear and its in my name (sales tax paid). Here is whats new or new-ish on this 280Z to the best of my knowledge: brand new windshield, refurbished fuel tank, new fuel pump, new cap and rotor, new plugs and cables, has a good battery, good tires and best of all everything works. Brakes are good and so is the steering. The sunroof opens and closes easily and has a good seal. The car is mechanically sound and reliable. It has the ORIGINAL paint and the body has never been worked on. As such there is rust in usual places: floors, rocker panels, rear quarter panels (see the pictures). If I would have a body guy to fix it for me I would never sell it. As an extra, I am including a brand new front L fender. The original rear louvres are also included. The radio is original and it works. Interior is all original, cracked dash, few tears on the seats covers. The driver side door panel is warn off, the passenger one is in good shape. The car is complete and all the badges are there. The rear right wheel bearing makes noise and it needs replacing. Enjoy it the way it is, or restore it to its original glory. Don't miss a chance to own this old gem. Was told it is the original Colorado car a real survivor. Not very many 280Z are left to be all original like this one. Reluctant sale. If you are looking for all original car to restore this is it. I always try to describe my classic cars to the best of my knowledge. Small print: Shipping is at buyers expense. Deposit is mandatory (non-negotiable). Bid only if you have the money and intention to buy and pay. Way too many time-wasters on eBay. Good luck.
