1982 Datsun Z-Series 2+2 Description

This 1982 Datsun 280ZX is an example of an incredibly popular Japanese import that GOES UP in value every year.This 280ZX has all the desired features, great colors, a 5-speed, and it's a 2+2 version, so you can have more than one passenger.
It has some rust but was not abused telling from the interior. It still has its original metallic Brown paint, it's not showroom perfect.
1982 was the first year of the Series II facelift, which included revised NACA ducting in the hood, special alloy wheels, along with newly designed B-pillar trim, taillights, and rubber bumper over-riders that replaced the earlier model's chrome and rubber items. In fact, the bumpers are now the color of the body and wrap around.
The tan leather interior is in pretty nice shape. The bucket seats are still firm and supportive, the upholstery is in good condition. It's loaded with options including A/C (which actually works), power windows and locks, cruise control, tilt wheel, and a stock AM/FM/cassette stereo. Clear, legible gauges, including the traditional trio of auxiliary dials in the center of the dash, are all in fantastic condition and as with any sports car, a 5-speed manual gearbox is a welcome sight. This is a no t-top version so there have never been any leaks in the car.
The 280 part of 280ZX stands for the 2.8 liter inline-six that powers this sports car. The engine bay, while covered in hoses, wires, and pipes, is remarkably intake and could shine with a nice cleaning. The smooth-shifting 5-speed is a joy to run through the gears. The 4-wheel independent suspension is agile and the power 4-wheel disc brakes are powerful enough to easily stop the car. The power steering lets you steer this sports car with ease.
Again this is a project and needs body work and paint, but it's still very clean and there's no doubt that this is an amazing original car. It came equipped with 14-inch 6-spoke alloy wheels, and these are almost completely unmarked.
Please bid only if your serious about buying this beautiful car. I will answer any and all questions. Good luck.
