1978 Datsun Z-Series 280z
For sale is this 1978 Datsun 280Z Z - Series Coupe
RW Auto Classics is proud to present this 1978 Datsun 280z coupe. Sadly this car has bounced from owner to owner with out the proper care she deserves and is begging for someone to make her right again. And on the plus side, has a clean title. With the rising prices, now is a good time to get into the projects while they are relatively cheap.
The body on this Z has all the typical rust spots with the worst being the passenger side floor. Its definitely not the worst Z out there, but it will require work to eliminate the cancer. The pictures tell the tale well. Body is actually pretty straight, with the gaps lining up well. Everything shuts nicely, but the passenger door has some locking issue. The car has definitely been repainted at some point in its life, supposedly it was in the late 80’s.
The previous owner stated that the engine was running within the last 2 years, seems a bit optimistic to me, but it does turn over. He misplaced the key, so we are unable to verify his claim. We are attempting to get the ignition re-keyed as we speak. We believe that this is the original engine, as it is a L28. Plan on a refurbishment of the mechanical systems on the car. The brakes do something when you step on them, at least slowed it down coming off the trailer.
The interior is in various states of eh. Looks to be mostly complete and there is a lot to work with. It still retains most of the factory parts it was born with. The sunroof AKA fresh water recovery system gives you the fresh out of shower look.
