1977 Datsun 280Z 5-Speed Manual
Product SKU SKU 216
1977 Datsun 280Z with 5-Speed manual gearbox in Metallic Golden Sand with pale cream seats,black dash and carpets and factory A/C. Just arrived from our partners in Florida and has to be the most complete and original Z car we have ever seen.
The car looks to have had one repaint in its life so far and the Florida sun has caused the paint to fade and craze. However the sheet metal is all original and the underside has never had to be welded or repaired in any way. It is bone dry and rust free. We will be sending it to our body shop for a complete bare-metal repaint in its factory Bronze and for the removal of the U.S Federal bumpers and conversion to UK/European type. However at this stage the choice could be made to keep the factory bumpers if it was preferred to keep in original U.S spec.
Apart from the understandable sun-damaged paintwork this 280Z is outstanding. The seats, carpeting and all of the interior is original and in an amazing state of preservation. The only addition to how it left the factory are the very nice polished Z alloy wheels and rear hatch window louvre.Currently displaying 95000 miles which we understand to be correct.
It still has its full factory tool kit, space-saver spare wheel and inflator kit, original hand book and unused First-Aid kit-all of which was supplied with the car when new. Just incredible!! I doubt you will ever see another 280Z with this level of originality and with all it came with on the day it left the dealership.
The 280Z fuel-injected engine performs silky smooth and the super easy 5-speed manual gearbox along with the bark from the exhaust makes this the best driving Z car I have ever driven.
Will be supplied fully serviced and UK registered and whilst this car no longer requires a MOT all of our cars will come with one. Tax is of course free.
We are happy to arrange for any viewings now prior to commencement of works or at any time in our body shop, where you will be able to see just how special this car is.
Please contact us if you would like to know more or make an appointment to view.
