1977 Datsun 280Z

This 1977 Datsun 280Z is the definitive Japanese classic sports car you love with a ton of investments to make it both a comfortable driver and a show-stopper. So dig into to all the details, because this is the coupe that has been done exactly the way you want. The 280Z did come in silver, but you know it never had the deep tones you see on this one. That's because this Z car has had a full professional respray in 2015. That custom color cost nearly $13k, and it's all part of a serious investment in this car that happened only a few years ago. And it all continues to look spectacular today because this one has been treated with the right respect. Complementing this sleek paintwork is a custom appearance that comes from the well-integrated competition-style front end, and the expertly deleted rear bumper leaves everything butter-smooth. It's all part of another $8k invested in keeping this 280Z fresh and distinct. But as much as this is a custom look, it does not betray the original spirit that made this a legend. You can see it on everything from classic sports car silhouette, right down to the factory badging. In fact, this enhanced classic appearance is tied together perfectly on the wheels. After all, we all know the look of those classic 15-inch four-spoke units, but now they are polished to a mirror-like shine. The interior will have familiar feelings to anyone who's been in a Z-car before, but just like the exterior, there have been all the right investments to keep it fresh and comfortable. It starts with the bucket seats that follow a similar silhouette to the originals, but now they have been re-finished in a fresh and supple leather. It's part of over $4,300 spent on restoring the interior. That also means the fundamentals feel great, like on the door panels, dash, carpeting, and armrest center console. This has the right comfort features like AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth for the best in modern tunes and provisions for R134a air conditioning. Best of all, the wood and chrome setup on the steering wheel and gearstick feel like two beacons in this crisp and dark interior that are calling out for your hands. Datsun's fuel-injected 2.8-liter motor already has a great reputation for being both powerful and dependable. It only gets better with one look at the engine bay, and you know there has been a lot of time and money invested in this Z-car. During the restoration there was about $6,700 spent on the motor alone. It includes new injectors, fuel rail, manifold, aluminum radiator, and cold air intake. You have complete control over this with a five-speed manual transmission that was also upgraded with an S1 clutch and 12-lb flywheel. Power steering, front disc brakes, and a fully-independent suspension already gave the 280Z a terrific sports car reputation, and that's only enhanced by a $2,400 investment in upgrading the suspension components. This one has everything you want in first-generation Z - classic looks, modern unique touches, and a ton of investments. It even comes with a lager receipt file so you can see all the upgrades. Don't look twice or this one will be gone. Call today!!!
