This beautiful 1984 NIssan 300ZX Turbo is part of a 60+ car private collection in Austin, Texas.
I purchased this 300ZX in October of 2011 for my personal collection. At that time, the car's odometer showed 26,207 original miles. Today the mileage of the car is 26,384 miles.The car was originally sold new in February of 1984 by Tony's Imports-Datsun in Lawrence, KS. The original owner kept the car for more than 20 years selling it to the second owner, a collector in the northeast, when the car had 25,652 miles. The second owner used the car as a show car and eventually moved the car to his vacation home in Miami, FL where the car remained until I brought it to Texas.
The mileage and history of the car is supported by nearly a dozen independent mileage records as documented by CARFAX that are available for viewing by potential purchasers. The mileage is also verified by a copy of the Massachusetts title showing the mileage of 25,652 on 4/30/2004 marked "ACTUAL MILEAGE".
As you would expect from an ultra low-mileage vehicle, the car is simply spectacular in every way - as close to a brand new 300ZX as you'll ever find - and truly an investment-grade vehicle in all regards.Under my ownership, the car has been maintained at my private facility in Austin, TX where it has been serviced by my personal staff who maintain all the cars in my collection.
I would not hesitate to drive this car across the country tomorrow. Along the way, I'd make sure to stop by a few tracks just for fun and I'd do my best to find and enter a local car show (which I would win). I believe this car to be among the finest, if not the finest, of its type available anywhere in the world. If you've been searching for a very special car, I urge you to consider this beautiful example. Further information is provided below.
Mechanicals:The original window sticker shows the car was delivered well-optioned with both the T-Bar Roof and the Leather/Digital Package and having an MSRP of $21,084.
Under my ownership, the car has been virtually problem-free. I did have the digital dash rebuilt (at great expense) due to a few bad LED's and I also took the time toreplace the fuel gauge sending unit (a common weak point on these cars) with the new upgraded unit. Both are now performing flawlessly.
The car starts, stops and drives exactly as you would expect. It pulls hard and revs smoothly with excellent acceleration and the unmistakable whine only a turbo-charged sports car can provide.The clutch is strong and the car brakes easily and in a straight line. There are no oil leaks or smoking from the engine.The car has never been involved in any type of accident or collision and is 100% rust free and as clean and solid as its low mileage suggests. Everything in the car works as it should - lights, switches, wipers, gauges, everything. The car is numbers-matching.
All components of AC system are intact and functional and the AC blows cold. The BF Goodrich tires are free of unusual wear and show excellent tread.
Exterior:From every angle, the car presents beautifully. The Regatta Red paint is in outstanding condition - deep and glossy with no checking or signs of deterioration. There are no dents or door dings and the paint appears closer to 30 days old than 30 years. The paint is 100% original with the exception of a section of the hood that I had professionally blended and clear-coated due to a rock chip. The color match is perfect and, if I hadn't told you, you wouldn't have never noticed.The rubber seals, trim, emblems, lenses, decals and exterior hardware are all absolutely outstanding. The car retains 100% of it's original glass including its original windshield with correct, factory markings.
The only flaw of note on the entire car is some minor scraping on the front spoiler under the bumper - an easy and inexpensive repair if you're so inclined but I never bothered as you have to get down on your knees to see it..
In my years of collecting classic cars, I have rarely seen a car of this vintage in more pristine condition or one that presents closer to new. The cosmetics of this car will exceed your expectations.
Interior:The interior of this car is a testament to what original, low-mileage cars should be.
The dash is perfect - free of cracks and showing no warping. The door panels are flawless. The controls and various switches are beautiful. The original leather-centered seats are outstanding. The steering wheel is pristine. The carpets are mint. The T-tops fit tight and the original cloth covers are included.Everything is original and without modification. The car even maintains it's original stereo (which sounds great, by the way).
I've taken the time to provide detailed photos of the interior from almost every angle. Please examine them closely and pay attention to the details. Yes, the big things like the dash, seats, and door panels all look excellent. But look even more closely at the small things. The interior details of this car are absolutely some of the best I've ever seen.
