Classic Car Overview

A cool two-tone exterior, T-tops, loaded A/C interior, and a turbocharger on Datsuns legendary inline-six...This 1981 Datsun 280ZX GL Turbo is a well-kept classic with everything you want. The first impression is both vintage and premium. After all, the factory-correct two-tone is an intricate presentation where a blue car has a shining silver hood that also delicately flows into the door panels. This has the look of quality everywhere from the straight panels, to the complete trim. There are even cool details, like a black pinstripe to match the bumpers, silver sport mirrors, and a secondary silver streak on the rockers and wheel arches. And we especially love the look of this 15-inch factory alloys. The two-tone continues inside on this Z-car. It has a highly original look, and that showcases good care over the years. So that means the blue velour in the high-back bucket seats feels comfy, the carpeting is nice, and there are cool details like sun blockers and storage bags for the T-tops. This is a driver-oriented environment. The dual-spoke steering wheel is on a tilt column so that you get an excellent view of the full gauges with large speedo and tach. Datsun was going up-market with this generation Z. That means a long list of desired features, including power windows, power rear defogger, power mirrors, and cold-blowing factory air conditioning. There are also few worthwhile additions. This includes a color-matched dash cover and an AM/FM/CD stereo for upgraded driving music. This cars smooth-revving, fuel-injected turbocharged 2.8- liter is directly descended from the engines that powered the famous early Z cars. But when the Nissan engineers bolted a turbocharger to the silky six, the performance comparisons started mentioning BMWs and Porsches...yes, this car is quick. This is believed to be the original motor, and the way it fires up and runs reaffirms a life of good care. On the road, this turbo Z has the sporty feeling of a fully independent suspension, four-wheel power disc brakes, and new tires. This is well-balanced with grand touring features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control. Complete with owners manual, this is the cool, clean, and turbocharged Japanese classic youve been waiting for. So dont let it slip away, call today!
