1976 Datsun Z-SeriesDon't let the location fool you, yes this is a rust free Z in the Midwest that spent it's life stored west of the Rockies. Excellent interior condition, factory dash in very good condition (no dash cap), would consider this car perfect for daily driving, weekend cruising, or the base for your modifications.
Exterior condition overall is good, was repainted at some point, the body is straight and rust free with no evidence of collision damage or body repair work, only normal wear and tear. Frame, floors, rear hatch, and chassis are solid with no rust either. I have provided photos of both floor boards to show the original rust free condition with the sound proofing removed and then after photos of Eastwood rust inhibitor (think POR15) applied as a preventative measure (a safety must for these cars in this part of the country). A photo of each frame rail showing their original excellent condition as well as the spare tire well are included. This Z does not leak water into the hatch either! Original front bumper and all hardware will be provided to the new owner.
The interior is redone and looks brand new. Dash (no cracks), panels, carpet, vinyl, seats all look great. Center console has 1 small crack on the side and the drivers door lock could use some adjustment. Stereo works but I have removed the speakers as they were very old and assume anyone will be upgrading, I can provide them if desired.
L28 engine turns over without hesitation and runs great from there. 4-Speed manual transmission runs through the gears with no issues. Oil, oil filter, coolant, and transmission fluid have all been changed this month. Bridgestone tires have plenty of tread for your driving needs. I would not hesitate to daily drive this Z or take it on a road trip for the weekend. I am unaware of any mechanical items that need replaced at this time, I would also keep in mind that this is a 40 year old car and will require normal maintenance. Currently the AC needs recharged to function properly.
Overall this Z is perfect for your gearhead needs, it is a rust free car with an excellent interior condition that'll take you wherever you want to go..... whether that is across country or fully modifying!
