Stock #: 4343-ATL Exterior Color: Silver Interior Color: Black Body Type: Coupe Transmission: 5 Speed Manual Drivetrain: RWD Engine: 2.8 I6 Title Condition: Clear Vehicle Description This handsome 1979 Datsun 280ZX 2+2 represents the last of the Z-cars that changed the automotive landscape in the 1970s. As some newer models prove, cars like this will always have a place in our garages and in our hearts, and this Z is a fantastic way to enjoy the ride.
Looking at the shape, it's clear that there's a bit of E-Type Jag in there, maybe a hint of Corvette, and perhaps some MG, too. Fast,... light, agile, and affordable, even today, this Z is a delight. It's also nicer than most, with an older repaint in the original silver metallic, which still looks contemporary and will never seem dated. It's also been fitted with a deeper chin spoiler that accentuates the long, lean, low look of the Z without taking away from the clean overall look. Cars like this were often put away as sunny-day drivers, and as a result, this one shows none of the bumps and bruises of the daily grind. Chrome was still in fashion, so there are plenty of bright pieces, including the stainless around the windows and along the B-pillar, all of which remains in good shape. Even things like the rubber bumpers are in decent shape with only light fading, suggesting that this car has led a sheltered existence.
One of the Z-car's biggest successes is the interior, which is both sporting and functional. The bucket seats were designed by guys who knew the car would be used to its potential, so they have thicker bolsters than most cars of the period, and grippy cloth inserts instead of vinyl help hold you in place. Of course, all of this remains in original condition, showing only very minor wear aside from some light wear on the driver's seat and some aging to the plastic, most notably the steering wheel and console, but it's not particularly noticeable. The dash is full of easy-to-read instruments, including a row of auxiliary gauges in the center, a look that is still evident today in the Nissan GT-R. This particular 280ZX is also luxurious, featuring factory A/C (needs to be serviced), power steering and brakes, and an AM/FM/CD stereo, all of which are fully functional. The rear seats (which fold down) are in excellent shape and the trunk offers a surprising amount of room for gear or travel.
The L28E 2.8 liter inline-six is a fantastic motor. Torquey, yet eager to rev, it was enlarged to better suit American driving tastes that demanded low-end torque. It still has that same baritone wail that epitomizes big-horsepower inline-sixes, and because it's a Nissan, it's reliable and smooth. The engine bay is pretty tidy and retains almost all its original equipment, and that tangle of hoses is how the factory did it, but don't worry, it has all been regularly serviced and is in excellent running condition. A recent set of plug wires ensure that it fires easily and idles smoothly, so don't be afraid to rev it. It's quite clean underneath thanks to a lifetime in a warm climate, and it doesn't look like there's much deviation from stock, as it even wears its original catalytic converter. The 5-speed manual transmission is a pleasure to run through the gears and stylish alloy wheels wear 195/70/14 Goodyear blackwall radials for a proper sports car look.
Today, as when it was new, this 280Z is a lot of performance for not a lot of money. Call today!
