Classic Car Overview

Offered here is an extremely clean and garage-kept one owner loaded 1982 Datsun 280Z that I bought from the original owner. He had a company vehicle and bought this beautiful Datsun 280ZX for pleasure and garaged and covered it its entire life. Only has 41K original miles. It is powered by the original 2.8L Inline 6-Cylinder motor mated to a 5-Speed Manual gearbox with RWD - the way a true sports car should be set up. This car came loaded from the factory and was ahead of its time. Two-tone black and platinum exterior and matching leather interior. Factory Air conditioning that blows cold air. T-Roofs that do not leak, power steering, power windows, power remote and heated mirrors, cruise control, rear defrost and wiper, digital dash with computerized systems check, matching rear window louvers and factory mag sport rims. Has new battery, alternator and tires. Still has the well sought after Datsun factory AM/FM Dolby Digital Stereo radio with cassette tape deck which works excellent and is paired up to the automatic factory power antenna. The dash board is perfect with no cracking. The car has been meticulously cared for. It is a blast to behold and even more so to drive. Comes with the original owners manual, factory and dealer paperwork, extra keys as well as a wealth of original service receipts.

As the 240Z market continues to climb, the low mile, excellent condition 280ZX Datsuns are the next collector cars, and you won't get much more collectible than this. All the books, stamps, stickers, tags, etc. are all there and the mileage is accurate at just over 41K. This is truly a timepiece and one of Japan's finest examples. The Datsun Z became legend with the 240 and this example will surely be the next one to climb in value. What stock market? Invest in an appreciating car!

History of the Datsun 280ZX: The Datsun 240Z was a game changer when in debuted in late 1969. Reliable, fast, and a bargain, the Z instantly redefined what a sports car could be. For British and Italian competition, it was like the comet that killed the dinosaurs. Like anything else, however, all good things must come to an end and by the late 1970s the original concept was beginning to run its course. The 280Z was essentially a 240Z with big impact bumpers and fuel injection. Datsun needed something newer and flashier. Enter the Datsun 280ZX which sold from 1979-1983. The 280ZX was raced successfully too in some cases by actor Paul Newman.
