1977 Datsun Z-Series
. This is a 1977 Datsun 280Z project I picked up recently in a package deal down in Tucson, Arizona.. It has been sitting forever.Since like 2000. While it is an Arizona Z, after sitting so long, water trapped in the carpet and underlayment rusted out the floor pans in places. . So probably new floors are in order. The rails,rocker, dogleg, lower fenders,,etc are still nice and rustfree. The front part of the spare tire box is rusted with rust thru from sitting water.. We mucked out the old carpet full of everything under the sun and tossed it. The seats are pretty bad, but I will throw them back in. The engine turns easily. Compression was 120,120,110,125,130 and 90.It may go up with running, But no guaranty on that. As usual,plan for the worse, hope for the best .But figure rebuild. . It is a 5 speed with AC. It is mostly complete. It needs everything, top to bottom. In and out.The paint in places looks like it was put on with a brush, so stripping to bare metal is in order.This will be a great base to build a Z your way. Clean straight Arizona title.I travel around mostly the west Coast and might be able to get it to you or close for reasonable money. I can arrange shipping to Long Beach California shippers for export for $300 no problem. Datsun Zs are getting harder and harder to get in any shape these days. .
