Although the old guard won't enjoy hearing it, Japanese cars are becoming collectable. We're already seeing spikes in prices of cars like the Datsun 2000 roadster, the Toyota 2000GT, and the early Mazda Cosmo, so there's no sense in fighting it. The Datsun/Nissan Z-car now has a history that's nearly as old as some of our beloved American iron such as the Camaro, Firebird, and Dodge Challenger.
The American iron muscle had plenty of power, which is indisputable, but Datsun (soon to be Nissan) with their Z series, had decent power for their size, but had a one up on the Americans...handling! This was nowhere more evident in the class ranks of the SCCA, where the Z's were in the same class as the ponies. Down the straight it was the Americans, however they were quickly caught in the curves and out handled which made for interesting racing on all configurations of tracks.
A respray of Metallic Gold, with the car presenting very nicely sporting straight panels, good gaps, and no rust. A restoration in 2010 took care of any rust with replacement panels or as in the case of the door's, total replacements. All brite work, and badging is very good. 4 spoke alloy wheels are wrapped by Goodyear Spirit radials on all 4 corners.
A swing of the newly covered paneled doors to leap inside to an inviting very good condition interior, reveals 2 black vinyl bucket seats that are all original, however dyed in the restoration process. Comfortably seated, one can reach out to the original steering wheel, gearshift and gaze upon the clean recovered dash. Carpeting covering the floor is black and has a few areas of minor soiling. Gauges are like new, and odometer shows 97,042 miles which is documented as original miles. Headliner is very nice, and rear hatchback cargo area carpeting is very clean and has nice thick pile. Air-conditioning is currently not working, and consigner states needs a recharge to do so.
Flipping the long, long hood forward reveals an original unrestored engine bay which presents very clean. Shoehorned into this space is the L28E inline 6-cylinder engine with fuel injection that produces 170hp. Bolted on back is a 4-speed manual transmission that not only provides great acceleration in lower gears, but great gas mileage in overdrive. Consigner states a new clutch master and slave cylinders, and a new fuel pump have been recently put on.
Surface rust is peppering some of the steel parts, but this car has a solid frame, and floorpans are untouched with rust. Possible slight damage on the toe kick areas is seen.
A model year prior to the ZX model. It is slightly smaller car, fuel injected, and is without overdrive. Overall this is a very nice car, with a major restoration taken on in 2010. Well maintained with diligent replacement of any parts that were not up to complete perfect snuff (fuel pump, etc). An original car for consignment here at Classic Auto Mall will have you tearing down the road, making lots of zzzzzzzzz's!
