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 there's more evidence of this it's only owner cherished this one. The high-backed black vinyl bucket seats look quite good for a classic that's approaching it's 40th birthday. Behind that are the handy rear seats on this extended wheelbase model, and they look like they've 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. It's all part of an interior package where the Japanese studied the world's 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. It's 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 driver's car. And there's 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 owner's manual, title documentation (this vehicle has a rebuilt title, call for info), 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 don't miss out. Call today!!!
