1971 Datsun Z-Series

This is a customer's car that I have been servicing for the last 25 years. The owner has taken great care of the car as it used to be his daily driver and received all its services at my shop. He is not as physically capable now and the low seating position is a problem. The car has been at my shop for a year while he decided to sell or keep the car.
The L28ET conversion was done approximately 15 years ago and has never used even 1 quart of oil between changes. It starts on the first compression stroke, every time! The engine is all stock and has not been modified. The turbocharger is quiet and boost is 6 psi. The AFM cover is missing, presumably was lost on I-5 somewhere, during a road trip.
The 5-Speed is from a 1978 280Z. It shifts great and there is no bearing noise. The clutch is from a 280ZX Turbo and is OEM.
The differential is original and the U-joints are in good condition.
The brakes are new, including master cylinder and both wheel cylinders.
The struts are low mile and are KYB Gas-Adjust.
The tires are new with 20 or so miles on them.
The paint is in nearly perfect condition and is not justified by these pictures. If you have questions about any bodywork or rust, please call and I can go over what repairs were done when the car was painted. The floor pans are in amazing condition as are the frame rails. There are more pictures of the underside of the car, please inquire for these.
The battery is new and all of the electrical bits work, including the 8 Track!
If you have any questions regarding more details about this car, please contact me @ 253-565-9823 between 10am and 10pm PST.
