Description:

1978 Datsun Z-Series

This is a 1978 Datsun 280Z. It is a project. It does not run. It needs engine work. It needs paint. It is a rustfree Z that the previous owner had been working on. He did a lot of performance stuff to it. New poly bushings, rear sway bar, new parts in the rear end, moustache bar mounts, etc. Front lower valance, custom grille, aluminum radiator early SU carbs instead of fuel injection, 5 speed tranny with new driveshaft, test exhaust pipe in place of cat, 15 inch 82-83 ZX Turbo rims with new Yokahama low profile rubber all around. This car is not stock. It even has an aftermarket sunroof installed. Neat clean job, but not stock. No bumpers front or back.Car is original factory black. With primer over the front end. And back paint on some chrome trim, rear tail light trim, etc for that blacked out look. Guy was going for the racer look. He had the car up and running until he dropped a valve or 2. He bought another N42 head and had it gone thru.So that needs to be installed to get this Z going down the road again. And it needs to be painted.The interior is actually pretty nice. Excellent door panels,not bad seats. dash cover, nice rear panels. Main thing about this Z is how nic, straight and rustree the body is. Think it was a Nevada car most of its life. Good old 115 degree Nevada. Speaking of which, this is a AC car. This car is a project. It needs work. It is not stock. But it has had a lot of good stuff thrown at it to make it a bit of a racer. 5 speed tranny, poly bushings, rear sway bar, aluminum radiator, louvered inspection lids,15 inch Turbo rims, free flow exhaust, SU carbs,front air dam,etc. Not for everyone, but tailor made for someone to finish off. Full payment within 7 days of auction end. I can get this car delivered to Long Beach, California shippers for $250 if you are overseas
