1978 Datsun Z-Series Jim Cook California Z (1978 280z)

1978 Jim Cook California Z
Historic Datsun 280z
This is not your ordinary 280z and you aren't likely to find many others like it for sale. Car is far from perfect and needs some TLC, but it should be an easy restoration. It has 4 brand new Micheline Z-rated tires and is a head turner/conversation starter. It has a Jim Cook Racing Series body kit, but I am not certain if the kit was installed after market or is an original Jim Cook California Z. I have heard conflicting opinions about the value of the car and buyer should perform their own due diligence prior to bidding or committing to buy. One thing that has not been disputed is that there are not many of these cars around.
