Sports cars dont come much more sporting than the Datsun Z-car, and this 1983 Datsun 280ZX is very nicely preserved and hugely affordable. These were iconic back in the day and remain fun cars to drive with a balance and flavor that seems to elude todays overpowered 2-seaters. This 280ZX gets just about everything right: great colors, a 5-speed, and its a 2-seat version, not a 2+2 so the proportions are ideal and weight is manageable. Oh, and I should also mention that its led a very easy life in a warm climate so its not rotted and abused. It was repainted seven or eight years ago, so you know its not perfect, but it was nicely done and has been properly maintained so it shines up well. White is pretty durable and easy to maintain, which probably explains the shine, and the fact that its never been rusty or wrecked means that the sheetmetal remains in first-class condition aside from a parking lot ding in the passenger door. At some point it was upgraded with a Turbo hood and its cool offset NACA duct, but it would take an expert to spot it. Nice black rubber trim hasnt been oxidized by the sun and with painted bumpers it looks sporty without being too extroverted. No wings, no spoilers, just one of the cleanest designs of the period. The red cloth interior is one of the better places to do the serious business of driving from the early 80s. The bucket seats are still firm and supportive, the upholstery is in excellent condition, and even though its red, the sun hasnt faded it to some awful orange color. Its loaded with options including A/C (needs to be serviced), power windows, rear defroster, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo, the latter of which is splayed out on a silver panel just ahead of the shifter. Clear, legible gauges, including the traditional trio of auxiliary dials in the center of the dash, are all in good condition and as with any sports car, a 5-speed manual gearbox is a welcome sight. The cargo bay is in good shape with only light fading on the carpets (inevitable with that big rear window) and it still has the tie-down straps for the removable glass T-tops and a cargo net. The 280 part of 280ZX stands for the 2.8 liter inline-six that powers this sports car, and it does a pretty good job of simulating some of the great sports cars of the 60s. Plenty of silky smooth torque means that the Z is a fun car to drive in traffic and its an effortless cruiser on the highway with very good road manners. The engine bay, while covered in hoses, wires, and pipes, is remarkably clean and well detailed and it runs even better than it looks. The slick-shifting 5-speed is a joy to run through the gear, matching revs with each downshift and listening to the burly exhaust note that could only come from a six. The 4-wheel independent suspension is agile without a punishing ride and the 4-wheel disc brakes are powerful enough to easily scrub off the speed. Its not detailed underneath, but theres no doubt that this is a good original car, although it could probably stand a new muffler. Handsome alloy wheels are almost completely unmarked and carry 14-inch Goodyear white-letter radials that fit just right. With the way Japanese sports cars are appreciating, its only a matter of time before everyone catches on to what fun machines these are. Buy now and avoid the lines. Call today!
This handsome 1979 Datsun 280ZX 2+2 represents the last of the Z-cars that changed the automotive landscape in the 1970s. As some newer models prove, cars like this will always have a place in our garages and in our hearts, and this Z is a fantastic way to enjoy the ride. Looking at the shape, its clear that theres a bit of E-Type Jag in there, maybe a hint of Corvette, and perhaps some MG, too. Fast, light, agile, and affordable, even today, this Z is a delight. Its also nicer than most, with an older repaint in the original silver metallic, which still looks contemporary and will never seem dated. Its also been fitted with a deeper chin spoiler that accentuates the long, lean, low look of the Z without taking away from the clean overall look. Cars like this were often put away as sunny-day drivers, and as a result, this one shows none of the bumps and bruises of the daily grind. Chrome was still in fashion, so there are plenty of bright pieces, including the stainless around the windows and along the B-pillar, all of which remains in good shape. Even things like the rubber bumpers are in decent shape with only light fading, suggesting that this car has led a sheltered existence. One of the Z-cars biggest successes is the interior, which is both sporting and functional. The bucket seats were designed by guys who knew the car would be used to its potential, so they have thicker bolsters than most cars of the period, and grippy cloth inserts instead of vinyl help hold you in place. Of course, all of this remains in original condition, showing only very minor wear aside from some light wear on the drivers seat and some aging to the plastic, most notably the steering wheel and console, but its not particularly noticeable. The dash is full of easy-to-read instruments, including a row of auxiliary gauges in the center, a look that is still evident today in the Nissan GT-R. This particular 280ZX is also luxurious, featuring factory A/C (needs to be serviced), power steering and brakes, and an AM/FM/CD stereo, all of which are fully functional. The rear seats (which fold down) are in excellent shape and the trunk offers a surprising amount of room for gear or travel. The L28E 2.8 liter inline-six is a fantastic motor. Torquey, yet eager to rev, it was enlarged to better suit American driving tastes that demanded low-end torque. It still has that same baritone wail that epitomizes big-horsepower inline-sixes, and because its a Nissan, its reliable and smooth. The engine bay is pretty tidy and retains almost all its original equipment, and that tangle of hoses is how the factory did it, but dont worry, it has all been regularly serviced and is in excellent running condition. A recent set of plug wires ensure that it fires easily and idles smoothly, so dont be afraid to rev it. Its quite clean underneath thanks to a lifetime in a warm climate, and it doesnt look like theres much deviation from stock, as it even wears its original catalytic converter. The 5-speed manual transmission is a pleasure to run through the gears and stylish alloy wheels wear 195/70/14 Goodyear blackwall radials for a proper sports car look. Today, as when it was new, this 280Z is a lot of performance for not a lot of money. Call today!
The Datsun Z cars put Japan on the performance car map, and this 1977 Datsun 280Z 2+2 tells you all you need to know about why these are such special vehicles. With an unusual copper metallic paint job, a beautifully preserved interior, and long-term ownership history, this is exactly the kind of car that you can enjoy today and let it appreciate tomorrow. The long nose styling of the Z car never seems to go out of fashion, and when combined with a sophisticated and elegant color like this, it creates a unique blend of performance and luxury that was found on cars like the Jaguar E-Type. The paint is original, and with that in mind its in fantastic shape. Not perfect, mind you, but for being 40 years old, its pretty impressive with a soft shine that is exactly what youd expect. Typical of the Japanese, the fit and alignment of the body panels are excellent, and for a car from the 70s, this one fits together amazingly well. Details like the chrome bumpers are in original condition, and their shiny surface suggests that this car has always been properly maintained. Badges, the front grille, the rear valence with distinctive Z taillights, all of it looks far younger than the cars age would suggest. The two-tone 2+2 interior gives the Z a lot more space, and while you wont want to put two adults in back for a cross-country trip, it greatly expanded the Zs practicality. The front buckets are well preserved, with no cracks or splits, and showing virtually zero wear even on the lighter surfaces. With its distinctive dashboard design, with speedo and tach in front of the driver and three auxiliary gauges mounted up high in the center, the Zs interior has been the prototype for all Japanese sports cars for decades. In this car, the dash pad, the door panels, and even the rear hatch area are exemplary, showing no signs of sun damage which is so common on these cars. A/C (needs to be serviced) and an AM/FM/cassette stereo are included, so theres no reason not to get in and have fun. Power comes from an upgraded 2.8 liter inline-six, which makes wonderful sounds akin to the great British roadsters of yore, not to mention all that turbine-smooth torque. The 280Z uses fuel injection, which looks complicated but is extremely reliable and delivers improved performance and economy. Showing signs of proper maintenance throughout its life, this Z fires up the first time every time and pulls cleanly, with a long list of recent maintenance items including the fuel pump, fuel injectors, hoses, clutch master and slave cylinder, a new muffler, and a re-sealed gas tank. The 4-speed manual transmission is wonderful to row through the gears, making this Z a fantastic car to run down your favorite twisty road. The all-independent suspension is agile, and none of its handling prowess is diminished by the added length of the 2+2 body. The original alloys are in very good condition, with no curb rash or corrosion, and they wear a set of 195/60/14 performance radials. In the same family since 1980, this very well preserved survivor is an affordable way to enjoy a vintage sports car thats also surprisingly practical. The Zs day is fast approaching, and clean examples like this one will continue to be in demand. Call today!

This is the car that started the Z car dynasty. It is a lightweight sportscar with a fully independent suspension and a torquey 6-cylinder engine that loves to run. It has been restored and repainted with piles of new OEM parts that really set this car apart from the crowd. And, it is a fun, fun, fun car to drive! Check it out. Starting with a super solid car with all original sheet metal, this car was stripped down and recoated in Safari Gold topped with clearcoat. It is a classic design that has stood the test of time and still attracts attention anywhere it goes. 1001 little details and new parts add up to a huge difference with this car. Starting up front, a fresh European style bumper shines brightly as it leads the way. That long hood with a Datsun badge flows back to a fresh windshield installed with a new seal. All the stainless around the windows looks great polished up real nicely and new mirrors and trim pieces everywhere are little things that make a big difference. Datsun in script appears on the front fender and there is a 240Z badge high on the rear fenders. The hatchback design makes this a very easy sportscar to use as a daily driver, and another European style bumper adds to the super clean look of the rear of the car. Open the door and you will find a super clean Black interior. The door panel itself looks like a lightweight racecar piece in its simplicity. Slide on into those high-backed buckets which have comfortable pleated seating surfaces and substantial bolsters to support you for spirited driving. Grab hold of the steering wheel that has been nicely restored and reach for the new shift knob for the 4-speed manual transmission which falls easily to hand and is just begging to be stirred around. New pedals for the gas and clutch making that activity extra enjoyable. The dash board is stock with the speedo and tach directly in front of the driver and the engine gauges clearly visible mounted at the top of the dash in the center. Below them are the controls for the ventilation system that includes air conditioning for those hot summer days. The tunnel and trim in the interior is the great looking, original, diamond patterned vinyl and the headliner as well as the carpeting are in excellent condition too. The engine and drivetrain on this car were the focus of a thorough rebuild by a Datsun specialist and involves an extensive list of parts that you should ask your salesman about. Pop the hood and you will find that 2.4-liter in-line 6-cylinder motor nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. It was completely rebuilt to standard specifications, not over bored, with fresh pistons, rings and bearings installed before the reconditioned cylinder head was installed with a new timing chain and guides. The Hitachi carbs were rebuilt and a set of headers help the engine breath free and sound sweet. Power is sent back through a new clutch assembly to the independent rear suspension. The rest of the chassis received its share of love too with a new master cylinder along with complete brake job front and rear and a brake fluid flush. A set of polyurethane sway bar bushings tighten up the front suspension and polished Shelby Viper rims complete the picture. Come on down and see what this lightweight little sportscar that started the Z-car legend is all about.
Chevrolet celebrates 100 years of building pickup trucks as former chief engineer who helped Chevy trucks reaching this popularity celebrates turning 101.
Building off of the success of the first generation of Z cars, the 280ZX made numerous improvements that lowered the center of gravity, reduced drag, and improved high-speed stability. For the street, the car became more of a GT car that was comfortable and easy to drive. On the race track, Paul Newman and Bob Sharp racing were winning races and Paul promoted the cars in a series of commercials. Check this one out. A nice respray in its original Burgundy Mist Metallic paint looks great. It is a beautiful color with a nice shine that really highlights the smooth lines of the car. Up front, eliminating the old grill and splitting the air with the new bumper gave the car a clean new look and made a big difference in efficiency. Air for the radiator is fed in from below while a NACA duct and vents in the hood admit additional cooling air to the engine compartment. Removable T-roof panels give you the option of open-air motoring when the weather is nice and the roofline flows down over the hatch which gives great access to the large rear luggage area and really makes these cars practical to use as daily drivers. A tan pinstripe runs from front to rear along the upper fender lines and the back of the car brings all the lines together nicely with horizontal lines on the taillights and Datsun 280ZX badge on the back edge of the hatch. Open the door and you will find a Red and Burgundy interior that is comfortable and invites you to climb in and take it for a drive. A long one if you have a mind to. Because these second gen cars moved a bit away from the raw sportscars of the early Zs and toward a sports luxury, or Grand Touring orientation. The seats are comfortable and pretty dramatic looking in Red cloth, but also hold you firmly in place for spirited driving. A beefy Grant GT steering wheel feels good in your hands and the shifter for the 5-speed manual transmission rising from the center console is just begging to be stirred around. The dash is stock with the speedo on the left and tach on the right flanked by the fuel and temp gauges. Oil pressure, voltage and a clock are set high on the dash in the center angled toward the driver. Ventilation controls are under them which include those for air conditioning and the factory FM/Cassette stereo is below them. Pop the hood and you will find that torquey 2.8-liter in-line 6-cylinder motor nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. The air filter scoops up cold air at the front and directs it through the fuel injection systems air flow meter and then on to the intake. The aluminum valve cover is embossed with Nissan as these were the transition cars while they switched from Datsun to Nissan branding. Signs of good regular maintenance include fresh plugs and wires along with a new battery. Power flows back through that 5-speed transmission to the rear differential and out the wheels through new heavier duty half shafts. Revised suspension settings for these cars included different spring rates and sway bars. Up front, a new power rack and pinion system provide tons of fun on the backroads while power 4-wheel disc brakes insure that you can haul this car back down to a stop in hurry. The rubber meets the road through 205/75R14 tires all around mounted on factory 6-spoke aluminum wheels. A true GT car. Comfortable, fast, fun to drive. Come on down and check this one out.
These first-generation Z cars combined good looks with powerful performance as they started building the Z-car legend. This one looks extra good sitting up on a set of Rota wheels. It also looks like it wants to head out and find some fun little backroads. It just needs a driver to operate the pedals and turn the wheel. Might that be you? Come on down, check it out and see what you think. Silver paint really works well on these cars. It shows off the bulging fenders and sloping hood line quite nicely. It helps that before this one was recoated the surfaces were prepped properly before a drop of that paint was sprayed on. The hood flows down to a badge on the front that still says Datsun. It sits over a black grill and is underlined by a chrome bumper with black trim cleaning up the air flow. The headlights are still tucked back into deep pockets in the fenders which is a unique look that carries through on all the first-generation cars. The windshield lays back at a nice aerodynamic angle and the roofline flows smoothly down over a big, very useful hatch. A Datsun 260Z badge graces that hatch and quad taillights are set in a black panel and underlined by a chrome bumper. Open the door and you will find a really sharp interior that is completely stock, but one that Datsun started to dressed out a little bit more than the earlier cars. For example, the door panel is still simple with a nice armrest and a door latch mounted so low it looks funny until you sit in the car and realize that it is perfectly placed, but it also has a nice strip of burled wood trim running across the top. That compliments the wooden shift knob that rises out of the center console on the perfect angle wrapped in leather which is just begging to be stirred around. The high back bucket seats are both comfortable and supportive with air vents in the lower back area and substantial side bolsters for spirited driving. A three-spoke, deep dish steering wheel sits in front of a stock dash with the engine gauges mounted in the center and tilted toward the driver. Open the hood and you will find a 2.6-liter, overhead cam, in-line 6-cylinder motor sitting down in the engine bay. The twin SU carbs have been rebuilt and tuned properly, and they have also been allowed to breath freely through high flow air filter elements. A good set of plug wires assures good spark and the exhaust heads out through a Magnaflow high performance muffler. An aluminum radiator keeps everything running cool and the power flows back through a 4-speed manual transmission to an independent rear suspension with a sway bar to keep it cornering flat. Up front there is a strut type front suspension with rack and pinion steering that has been completely serviced up recently. New tie rods and ball joints were installed and then a good 4-wheel alignment was done. Power front disc brakes provide great stopping power and the rubber meets the road through 205/55R16s mounted on those great looking Rota wheels. This car looks great in its silver paint and trick wheels. Its ready to head out to find some twisty backroads, but it needs a driver to push the pedals. Come on down and try it on for size. You might decide that driver will be you.
This 280ZX is a fun and comfortable sports car. Its really more like a Grand Touring (GT) car with power everything and a killer stereo. Motor Trend named it Import Car of the Year when it was introduced and it went on to win SCCA and IMSA races and a new generation of fans too. Check it out. Z cars, now in their 6th generation, have kept a certain family resemblance throughout the years. Primarily, that is because they have stayed true to their mission. They are two seat, hatchback sportscars. There is a long hood with a powerful motor under it. The roofline only has to cover the driver and passenger, and then slopes down in a big useful hatch. This was a rust-free car that was taken down to bare metal before being brought back in the factory correct Marine Blue paint. Up front the hood slopes all the way down to the bumper. Air comes in through the grill under the bumper and escapes out vents near the cowl in the hood. Headlights are carved back into the fenders with a 280ZX badge on them, and rocker trim connects the fender wells. The window trim all shines bright and the rear quarter glass gets a polished vent. The large rear hatch offers great visibility out and great access into it with a Datsun 280ZX badge on it. Open the door and you will find a nice Blue and Gray interior. The gray door panel has a long armrest with the power window switches just at your fingertips. The blue velour high back bucket seats are comfortable and supportive. The unique two spoke steering wheel lets you place your hands anywhere you want and sits in front of a stock dash with the speedo and tach in front of the driver and fuel and water temp off to the sides. Three more gauges are mounted in the center and tilted toward the driver for oil pressure and voltage. Below them are the controls for the ventilation system that includes nice cold R-134 A/C and a Kenwood FM/CD/iPod compatible stereo. The shifter for the 5-speed manual trans just begs to be stirred around and there is comfortable console to rest your arm on. The hatch area is huge and access to it is easy from both the inside and outside of the car. Under that long hood is a 2.8-liter, overhead cam, fuel injected engine that makes great low-end torque and loves to rev too. There is an aluminum valve cover that says Nissan, which is interesting because these were the transitional cars when they were phasing in Nissan as their global branding, so it still says Datsun on the hatch too. The engine is stock and shows signs of good regular maintenance with the ignition components, belts and hoses all in good shape. Power is sent back through that 5-speed transmission that just received a new clutch to the fully independent rear suspension located by semi trailing arms with a sway bar and new calipers clamping the rear disc brakes. The front suspension is a MacPherson strut setup with a sway bar and big disc brakes that will haul this car down in a hurry. The rubber meets the road through 205/70R14 BFGoodrich Radial T/As mounted on 6-spoke alloy wheels. This is a very capable sportscar that you can comfortably drive every day. Come on down and check it out.
Youre looking at the last year for the original Z-car. So this 1978 Datsun 280Z 2+2 has the iconic design we all love and all the best updates learned over this models run. The Z cars defined 1970s motoring in America, and thats best represented in one color: Gold Metallic. Its that perfect hue that seemed as disco-friendly as the leisure suit forty years ago, and its still an attention getter today. But really the reason why the color still works so well is because the original color was given a professional respray later in life to keep this precious metal hue glowing. Plus, this has a nice aggressive streak with the black hood stripe that continues up the roof and ends across the hatch. This styling element coordinates nicely with the bumper caps, tinted windows, and wheel covers to give this one a full black and gold coordinated appeal. More than just this cool look, theres a fundamental desire that comes from the first of the great Japanese sports cars. The design borrowed the best elements from around the world with the long front end, vented hood, sleek profile, and an overall timeless appeal that is becoming more and more appreciated by the day. This is believed to be under the care of one family for most of its life, and so the interior is highly original. These 2+2s were a handy addition where the rear seats could hold others in a pinch, and they were especially nice to fold down a get extra cargo space for long trips. In fact, this is set up to be a nice grand touring machine with high-back bucket seats, armrest center console, and AM/FM/cassette stereo. Plus, we all love the look of the gauges set into twin round pods for speedometer and tachometer. Auxiliary readouts are placed on a trio of dials set high on the specially contoured dash. This is a look that became so iconic, it was used for the modern Z as part of its retro-style. Under the hood is a correct 2.8-liter inline six. This was the largest of the original Z-series, and so youll love the extra power. And fuel-injection just increases the desirability and drivability of these classic Z-cars. This motor just seems to be tidier than most with a handsome paint package, which reinforces the idea of a cherished single-family coupe. Out on the road, you really feel how a this is a great grand touring comfortable classic with features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and the fully independent suspension. This is a well-coordinated classic in a rapidly appreciating market. So dont look too long at the last of the great Z-cars, or it might be gone. Call now!
Japanese classics are really coming into their own as collectors are heating up the market. So if youre looking for an example that is worthy of awards and is extra fun to drive to the shows, then this 1973 Datsun 240Z is the right fit. With a beautifully restored body, more power out of the original motor, and an upgraded five-speed manual transmission, this is the best of everything. This example was restored to be particularly striking. The white paint was professionally applied during the restoration to have a huge gloss and shine. So the moment the sunlight hits this one, it radiates while also showcasing all of the best features. This includes the long hood, sloping rear deck, and rear fenders that had a powerful muscle car-like kick-up. Its all of this attraction why the 240Z wrote the first chapter in Japanese sports cars being accepted by the American public. And as you dig deeper, you can see why this example deserves the extra scrutiny. All the panels have a crisp feeling that shows good care. The grille, taut rubber trim, and blacked-out rear panel make for an attractive contrast to the white. And the 15-inch Panasport style wheels are great for distinction while still looking vintage. The original Z-car was made for two, and this one sports inviting black buckets inside a nicely presented interior. In true Japanese fashion, they took what was already great about contemporary sports cars and enhanced it with user-friendly design. As a result, the cockpit talks directly to the driver with no interference from quirky ergonomics or heavy control actions. Instead, the speedo and tach are set into twin round pods with a trio of auxiliary dials set up high on the dash. The restoration focused this as a drivers machine, and so the steering wheel was upgraded to a Momo Prototipo sports unit with a Datsun horn cap brightly in the center. Have you counted the gears on this one yet? So while you might have an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, this total package signals to your senses that your favorite soundtrack really starts under the hood. The engine bay shows off more great signs of investment as the bright long cover draws your attention to the original 2.4-liter inline six-cylinder. This exceptionally tidy setup is great to show off, and it gives you a clear view of the upgraded triple Weber 40DCOE side-draft carbs. Not only do these dominate the engine bay, but they also inject some serious extra power in this package. Plus, it has all the right supporting components like an MSD ignition, Optima red top battery, and an aluminum radiator/dual electric fans. Theres even a header package with stainless steel exhaust to add even more power and give this Z-car a great rumbling note. And best of all, you get to take full control of this machine with an upgrade to a five-speed manual transmission. When you get this out on the road, youll instantly feel the excitement of a European-level sports car that comes with easy everyday livability. Thats thanks to a lively fully independent suspension, front disc brakes, and added lowering springs. This is the cut-above Japanese classic for someone who loves to drive and be memorable everywhere. If thats you, call today!
T-tops, a loaded interior, and a terrific color combo this 1982 Datsun 280ZX already has an attractive performance classic car pedigree... and thats before you dig into the ideal mix of preservation and restoration on this loaded coupe. The factory-correct Cadet Blue Metallic is a great color that still looks good in modern times. Of course, it also helps that there was a professional respray later in life to make sure it has a nice gloss in the sunshine. Plus, the straightness of the panels give the paint a great canvas and reaffirms that this coupe has led a well-respected life so far. We are really beginning to appreciate how sporty these second-gen Z-cars look with their sharper edge profile and NACA scoop in the hood. This one does it particularly well, because it averaged less than 2,500 miles annually. And it also really gets its details right with the pieces like the shining factory alloys and even the Nissan fog light covers (remember Datsun was just transitioning the Nissan name into the market at this time.) We especially love the full-length gray pinstriping package that highlights the kick-up in the rear fender. When you open the door, youll see the other reason why the exterior pinstriping is so appealing. It unites the interior and exterior as the blue and gray presentation is fully realized inside. You get a pair of plush velour seats with a center console in-between. The sports steering wheel gives you a clear view to the large speedo and tach, so this is a great place for grand touring comfort. A premium sports car like this came with plenty of factory options like power windows, power locks, cruise control, and AM/FM/cassette stereo. Since the factory air conditioning is still blowing nice and cold, feel free to take out the T-tops long into the summer season. The fuel-injected 2.8-liter motor is why this one is always calling for the open road. This engine has a legendary smoothness and rev-happy nature that helped establish Datsun/Nissan as an exciting brand of cars. The way it fires up is yet another reminder of how well cared for this example has been. You can even spot great details like the movable service light and factory decals. It looks like theres a lot going on under the hood, but the SOHC inline-six is easy to spot and makes a wonderful baritone exhaust note thats a big part of this Zs allure. Out on the road you experience the harmony of the three-speed automatic transmission, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. Its a true touring coupe. The Z-cars are coming into their own on the classic car market, so this is a great way to get an up-and-coming classic that you can also enjoy on the road today. Call now!

Theres this great sweet spot where your vintage car also offers value and dependability. This one-owner 1979 Datsun 280ZX 2+2 hits that quality mark. We first bought these coupes decades ago because they were everyday reliable sports cars, but along the way, we fell in love because they were so surprisingly fun to drive. This highly original and five-speed example might be your last chance to get all those great feelings while still at a value price. There is just something elegantly great about the lines of this Z-car. It has the long hood and short deck of the Corvette and the E-Type, but with its own distinctively aggressive sharp-edge style. The Silver Mist metallic paint is the factory-correct color. It benefits from a recent professional respray to really showcase the angular lines of this super-straight body. This color also looks terrific against some of the darker elements like the black bumpers and the hood vents. And those white factory alloys are a true standout piece that add even more character. So the total impression is vintage, distinct, and crisp all rolled into one sporty package. Open the door, and theres more evidence of this its only owner cherished this one. The high-backed black vinyl bucket seats look quite good for a classic thats approaching its 40th birthday. Behind that are the handy rear seats on this extended wheelbase model, and they look like theyve spent most of their lives folded down for better cargo room instead of steady use. Getting behind the wheel feels great thanks to features like the center console and factory sports steering wheel. Its all part of an interior package where the Japanese studied the worlds best sports cars, and then enhanced it with user-friendly design. As a result, the cockpit talks directly to the driver with a large speedo and tach directly in front of you. Auxiliary gauges are placed on a trio of dials set high on the specially contoured dash. Its a look that became so iconic that it was used for the modern Z as part of its retro-style. And while this is a great time capsule right down to the factory AM/FM radio there has been one key upgrade. The air conditioning has been converted to modern R-134a, so you can really enjoy this one all year round. Under the hood is the original 2.8-liter inline-six motor. It provides silky smooth torque and an exhaust note that is definitely reminiscent of the great sports cars from Europe. Thanks to fuel injection, it starts easily and accelerates smoothly like a modern classic should. It also helps that this has been under the care of a Z-car specialist. But what will really seal the deal for you on this one is its five-speed manual transmission a rarity that makes this Z a true drivers car. And theres even a new clutch! This coupe is the perfect balance of a sporty and comfort thanks to the fully independent suspension, sway bars front & rear, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes. This is a one-owner car, and so it comes with great paperwork. It includes the owners manual, title documentation, and the original warranty card (that also proves this has the original motor.) This kind of opportunity rarely comes around for such an affordable price, so dont miss out. Call today!!!
