1990 Nissan 300ZX Base Coupe 2-Door

1990 Nissan 300zx Manual Transmission Coupe

This one's for the connoisseur: very low miles, adult-owned, maintained, and rust-free (Texas car). The t-tops seal perfectly and include shades, covers, and hatch straps. All preventative maintenance (e.g., timing belt, water pump, shocks, tires, high-end fluids throughout). Every option works down to the minor lights like keyhole illumination.
I had no plans to sell this and invested in it as if it would be mine for a generation. I am starting a business though and am raising capital so the Z is for sale. As a potential buyer, know I will treat you well and want to help the final purchase go smoothly. Feel free to ask any questions. If you are in the market for a cared for, unmolested, clean, low-mileage Z, you've found the right one.

Driving experience:
  • Car starts perfectly. Battery and starter are both strong.
  • Engine idles smoothly.
  • Great sounding car, nice exhaust note, no belt whining.
  • Car pulls wonderfully throughout the powerband, no hesitation. Low end torque is always impressive on these Z's.
  • Shifts are flawless, synchros sound, and the shifts are especially enjoyable with Z1 Powersports Brass Bushings.
  • Clutch is perfect, no slipping, great feel.
  • Car rides perfectly and tracks straight on new BFGoodrich g-Force Sport Comp 2 tires, new shocks, and four wheel alignment. Turn in is sharp and steering response excellent.

Please note the following as outlined in the condition description:
  • A small, professionally repaired (by Safelite Auto) rock chip located at the top middle of the windshield (tried to get it to show in the close-up windshield picture). The chip is 100% invisible from the driver's seat as the mirror is in its line of sight.
  • There was an early '90s cell phone mounted on the passenger side interior that left a few small screw holes. These are pictured.
  • The drivers side seat is still excellent and sound, but shows a small amount of wear on the outside edge. This is pictured.
