Offering For Sale: 1983 Datsun by Nissan 280ZX 2+2 Coupe L28 S130 Grand Luxury model with T-Tops. Color code#101/Nugget Gold Metallic.
Originally purchased from Crown Datsun in St. Petersburg, FL, this vehicle has always been in Florida.
This Datsun 280ZX has 83,055 original, documented miles.
All maintenance has been meticulously performed within the manufacturer’s recommended periods.
This vehicle has been garage-kept for most of her life and driven daily, by me, for the past 1.5 years. Options on this vehicle include: A/C, Cruise Control, Electronic Voice Warning System, AM/FM/Cassette player, Power Brakes, Velour Interior, performance radial tires, independent suspension, and factory aluminum road wheels — considered to be the single rarest option for these vehicles. The paint on the car is the original paint and is in very good condition, especially for a vehicle that is 35 years old.
The tires were replaced in 2016 with brand new Raised White Letters, BF Goodrich Radials, P205/70R14.
In 2016, a new radiator was installed, radiator hoses, cap, thermostat, and gasket replaced, transmission cooler lines replaced, transmission gasket and filter replaced, new spark plugs installed, new battery installed, and new fuel filter. Air filter was replaced in 2016 with a K&N Air filter.
Under the hood, the inline 6 cylinder runs great and is all stock and original. The Fuel Injectors were replaced in 2017. Most of the hoses and hose clamps were replaced with EFI hoses and EFI clamps in 2017.
I have only used non-ethanol 90 octane fuel in this vehicle; however, the vehicle will operate using unleaded fuel.
There are no oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid or coolant leaks.
The rack and pinion steering was replaced in 2017.
MacPherson struts added in 2017, along with lower ball joints, strut bearings, sway bar links, brake pads and rotors.
Both front and rear bumpers are in very good condition.
The under carriage is clean, strong and rust-free.
The interior is all original stock and is in good condition. The headliner was replaced in 2016. The velour seats, (front and rear) are in good condition with all seat controls in working condition and no rips, tears or stains. The carpet and floor matts are original and do show wear and tear — pretty much what you would expect from a 35 year old vehicle. The weather-stripping around the t-tops needs to be replaced, although there have been no water/rain leaks. There is a small amount of corrosion near weather-stripping frame of the t-tops — about the size of a nickel. (See Photos.) There is a 6”x2” piece of black body side molding on the passenger side, rear panel, that is missing. The dashboard does have a small crack. (Please see photos.) There is a tear in the vinyl liner located on the driver’s side, rear-portion corner of the hatchback/trunk area. (Please see photos.)
The A/C blows cold and works great. There was an R34 conversion done to the A/C system, as is documented under the hood. The condenser and compressor were replaced in 2016.

It has been my daily driver for the past 1.5 years; never failing to start or perform. She has been lovingly and meticulously cared for. I believe that is well represented in the photos.
