1977 Datsun Z-Series 280Z "No Reserve"

"No reserve" I have for sale a 1977 Datsun 280z with a lot of the hard work done to it. Will just need body work finished and misc parts to get it running. It has a professionallybuilt Chevy aluminum block 5.3L V8 "LM4". Built for 500HP+. I have tape to protect from any dirt/dustgetting inside the engine. With Forged internals and ARP bolts. Combined with a 4L80 Automatic performance-built transmission. I installed a fullCxracing Damper Coilovers Suspension Kit. With adjustable coil overs all around. The brakes are brand new as well with new calipers, pads, and freshly bled. The whole drive train is built and installed. the engine will need an intake and computer that is it. (I suggesta Fi-tech system) I was building it to be a weekend warrior, but ran out of time. My lose is your gain. There has already been a lot of time and money into this car. The engine and trans alone have 10k into them. I have a list of parts included in this listing bellow. All the metal panels have been taken down to bare metal and primed. The whole underside has been bedlined. The engine bay has been painted black but may need more work to really pop. The roof is in need of some work. The body panels I am missing are the Doors, Hood, Rear Hatch, Fenders, Front headlight cones, cowl, grill, and front blinkers. Interior I don't have the seats, gauges, orwiring. I have, all the glass, boxes of parts, and a set of tires on the car that go with it as seen in the photos. The glass is all in good shape other than a chip along the bottom edge of the windshieldbut it is still usable. This is a project, but a lot of hard work has been done already andespeciallyall the high end upgrades.There is also boxes of parts as well. If you have any questions or want to find a time to see it message any time. The 3rd and 4th photos are to show that the underside and engine bays where painted. The engine and drivetrain is installed.

I can offer shipping services, but cost would vary. It depends on location and time. Shipping cost is separate from auction sale price.

Happy Bidding!
