1975 Datsun Z-Series

Very, very extensive videos and photos in the google drive link at bottom of description. All offers are respected and considered. This is a one of a kind car. Truly an amazing find. Will be placed on auction April 21 for 7 days to end Sunday April 28.
This auction is for the white 1975 Datsun 280z manual transmission NOT the orange 280Z or Ferrari also in my garage/driveway. The white Z for sale has a clean title. Owned outright. Runs great and the body and frame is incredibly clean (extensive videos and pictures linked below). Fluids hold. Brake and clutch pressure holds. Drives well. Starts up in cold weather no problem. 59,704 miles shown (picture of tach in link below); will start going up in the spring. Bushings underneath all look good. Trans and diff is good. Very clean. I am the third owner. The second owner got it on trade and parked it in a barn which is where I found it. Body is super clean, but the paint is old and a 6/10. Advantage with old paint is you get to pick your color (if you choose to repaint it) and you know new body/paint work isn't hiding rust and rust repairs.
Many, most Zs on the market now have new paint and body work to hide their flaws and manipulate buyers to pay top dollar. Not the case with this one! These cars with new body/paint work would fall apart on you have have seriously less appreciable potential. Many Zs outthere even have aftermarket side skirts to hide problem areas. This Z doesnt have that! You know exactly what you're getting.
You wont find a more accurately represented Z out there and proof of this is the extensive photos and videos I have of it for viewing (linked below). The main flaws to the body was light to moderate bubbling by the gas cap, light to moderate bubbling on the front of the leftside skirt 6" below the emblem. I sanded down and painted over these spots. There is also a small to medium dent on the roof which resulted in paint peeling. I peeled off and sanded down this section and put touch up paintover it. All this can be seen in the photo album linked below. The body panels all line up so well. You can see the original blue paint beneath the white on all panels, meaning they were notreplaced. You can even see a lot of the blue paint coming through beneath the undercoating, but no rust holes!Incredible!
The thinnest bits of metal on this car are so clean. Again, look at the photo album. The electrical system is unbelievable; the clock, tach, dash lights, overhead lights, door andseatbelt alarm, radio/cassette player, engine bay inspection light all still work. There is a night video showing electrical system working. It is truly unbelievable! The photo album even shows some interior body panels off so you can see both sides of the car, inside and out. There is a driving and walk around video too.
Now is the time to buy this appreciable asset as their appreciation has just begun to accelerate over last couple years. You're not spending money, but rather relocating money to aninvestment piece and something fun to enjoy. Better appreciation (interest) rate thenbanks are paying...
I will respect and consider all *reasonable* offers. Don't negotiate arbitrarily. These cars in this condition fetch $25-35K. With a paintjob and some basic TLC this car would yield $25-30k easy. This ad will go to auction eventually. Deposit is required immediately and non-refundable. Payment is to be made within 72 hours. I canFaceTime you over the car as well pre or post payment. If you are shipping it, then I will meet the shippers and make sure it is handled appropriately.
