1982 Datsun Z-Series GL
T-tops, five-speed, low-mileage, and one-family owned Ã¢â‚¬â€œ this 1982 Datsun 280ZX already has an attractive performance classic car pedigree... and that's before you dig into the ideal mix of preservation and restoration on this loaded coupe. The factory-correct Dark Brown Metallic represents the era so well. With a full respray, it has a great luster to make it absolutely attractive in modern times. Plus, this Z-car gets its details right with the full pin striping package that highlights the power bulge in the hood and the kick-up in the rear fender. And those factory alloys with the gold inserts do a great job of standing out while blending in with the total package. We are really beginning to appreciate how sporty these second-gen Z-cars look with their sharper edge profile and dual NACA scoops in the hood. This one does it particularly well, because it has been under the care of the same family all its life, and it has averaged less than 1,900 miles annually. Open the door to a terrific pair of bucket seats. This is the optional leather and suede package, and low mileage means it still looks great. The sports steering wheel gives you a clear view to the large speedo and tach, so this is a great place for grand touring comfort. A sports car like this came with plenty of factory options like power windows, power locks, alarm system, cruise control, and AM/FM/cassette stereo. Everything works, right down to the Z-car's iconic tri-pod gauges in the middle of the dash. The T-tops even still have their factory storage bags. Since the air conditioning is still blowing nice and cold, feel free to take the roof panels out all summer long! The fuel-injected 2.8-liter motor is what will make it so hard to resist adding extra miles to the low odometer. This original engine is one of the legendary smooth and rev-happy motors that helped establish Datsun/Nissan as an exciting brand of cars. It looks like there's a lot going on under the hood, but the SOHC inline-six is easy to spot and makes a wonderful baritone exhaust note that's a big part of this Z's allure. The good care means the motor is in outstanding condition, and all the factory stickers and markings seem to still be in place. If you do to choose to enjoy this 280ZX on the road, you'll be rewarded with the perfect harmony of the five-speed manual transmission, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. Complete with owner's manual and service manuals, this coupe is looking for a new family to cherish it. Will it be you? Call now!
