More Details & Pictures
Selling my 1977 Datsun 280z.
I am the second owner. It sat untouched for 4+ years in a mechanic storage lot. The original owner left it at his friends storage lot before moving out of state, and never returned for it. I rescued it a few years ago.
Although this car is a 1977, its essentially now brand new. I have basically redone everything that you would think would need to be repaired, replaced, or rebuilt on a car this old, and have all of the paper work to back it. Off the top of my head…
COMPLETE ENGINE REBUILD WITH LESS THAN 1000 MILES (HEADS, PISTONS, CYLINDERS, VALVES ETC.)
NEW WATER PUMP
NEW FUEL PUMP
NEW WATER PUMP
NEW FAN CLUTCH
NEW HEAD GASKET
NEW BRAKE CYLINDERS
ALL NEW SMOG EQUIPMENT (WILL ALWAYS PASS SMOG)
NEW CATALYTIC CONVERTER
NEW AIR SENSOR
NEW ERG/CARBON CANISTER
RECENT PAINT RESPRAY
ALL NEW EMBLEMS ALL AROUND (EXCEPT 280Z EMBLEM, WAS UNAVAILABLE)
In addition to this, there was some work done on the transmission, the brake system, and the timing chain was inspected/adjusted. Should go without saying, all new fluids as well. I can gladly refer you over to the mechanic who has done all of the work on this car. Even better yet, all or most of the work/parts on the car are STILL UNDER WARRANTY!
All lights/signals are functional. All gauges/instrument cluster are functional except the clock. Fan/heat works, but there is no AC as its missing the compressor. Interior is 9/10 and all original. No cracks in the dashboard or rips in the seats, carpet, or headliner. Original spare tire and tools are there as well. Has a working modern cd player. I also have the original front bumper.
Odometer currently reads 94,XXX miles. I believe the miles to be original. There’s even a sticker on the windshield from a 2008 smog change with an odometer reading of 80,XXX miles. 4 Speed stick shift.
This car is daily driver material and reliable. I’ve driven the daily for weeks at a time (I have several other cars), and its never given me any trouble. I’ve driven the car up and down the coast with absolutely no problems, and from Thousand Oaks all over LA, Inland Empire, Ventura, and Santa Barbara without even thinking twice. Needs very minor touches to be perfect.
$13,000 OBO. I’ll consider all reasonable offers. I have a clean and current title and the smog certificate in hand. If you’re interested or have any questions, send me an email with your phone number and I’ll get back to you promptly. Come check it out and drive it!
SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY.
Would consider some trades: clean title/automatic Nissan 350 or 370 Z. Clean title/automatic Dodge Challenger. 1960’s fintail Mercedes, 1975 or older VW beetle with cash on your end, Karmann Ghia with cash on your end or even trade depending.
