1990 Nissan 300ZXThis car has only 633 miles on the odometer!
Never registered or driven on the street.
I purchased this car from the University of California Long Beach. It had been donated by Torrance Nissan and The Nissan Corporation of America. The car was used to shoot a commercial for the 1990 Superbowl (look it up on the internet) and then donated to the university.
The car has been in storage at the university for the last 25 years.
This is the car used in the 1990 Super Bowl commercial directed by Ridley Scott; "The Dream", featuring a silver 1990 Nissan 300ZX TT. In the commercial the car is chased by motorcycles, a race-car and finally a jet.
At the end of the commercial you will see the car perform a jump over the camera. Apparently it was damaged in the landing--the vinyl nose broken and some minor frame damage. The nose was replaced (but not painted).
On receiving and inspecting the car it was apparent that the Z was originally black and repainted silver for the commercial (all the other vehicles in the commercial are black). Also you can see in the windows of the car were blacked out, including the windshield. There was even a piece of black cardboard RTV'd over the radio. And even though this car has a turbo spoiler and has many stickers stating its a "twin turbo", its actually naturally aspirated. According to the VIN number, this car is #000034 and I don't think Nissan had made any 300TT's when the commercial was shot .
In some respects, this car seems almost new--the interior even smells like a relatively new car. But the Z was stored outside for some years and the silver paint is fading in spots. There is also some residue--paint? grinding dust?--from its days in the University's auto shop. (I've cleaned most of that off). The clutch pedal was limp so I replaced the master and slave cylinders. The fuel tank was nearly full but after 25 years the gas had gone bad and the tank and fuel pump/sending unit were rusty and caked with gasoline deposits. I replaced the fuel tank, sending units and fuel pump assembly and the car runs fine.The tires look new but being 26 years old, I wouldn't trust them. Underneath, the car looks like it just rolled off the dealer's lot--aside from some scrapes on the front chassis, the two bent front tow hooks and missing splash shield.
This car was never registered. It doesn't have a title so it will be sold with a bill of sale. It does have a couple of Nissan camera holders, but no spare!
