1976 Datsun Z-Series Coupe

1976 Datsun 280Z in stock color code 901 (silver.)

Lived its entire life in Arizona. Had 2 owners plus myself. This 280Z has been on jack stands in a heated garage in Gilbert Arizona completing restoration from 2005-2015 when I acquired it. Comes with a clean and notorized Arizona Title. This is a wonderful driver. Paint still new and should be wet sanded to bring out complete shine. It starts, runs and stops very well. It goes down the highway straight with no shimmys or shakes. I’ve driven it about 2,000 miles in the past 15 months. Never let me down. The new buyer is going to be very pleased with this Z. There are a few minor things to finish, like installing the 240 conversion brackets and bumpers and a few black grommets, pins and some screws for the interior.However, the interior is secure and the big work has been completed overall on this wonderfully working Z. Doesn’t burn any oil, runs smooth at 75MPH and shifts clean and runs up the tach strong. Any questions, please feel free to call me anytime at 602-795-7646. My text number is 902-997-1242.

Goodluck. Ross.
