1979 Datsun 280ZX
2-owner Z-car finished in a two-tone brown with orange pinstriping. Featured by Motor Trend as the import car of the year for 1979, the 280ZX was driven by a 2.8L Inline-6 engine and shifted using a 5-speed manual. The 280ZX was a complete redesign of the preceding Z-cars with comfort and ride quality being the primary focus. This was achieved through the use of a softer suspension setup, increased sound deadening, higher-end equipment, and modernized interior. It should be noted not all changes made to this sport coupe were for the sake of luxury: the new body featured significantly better aerodynamic qualities – resulting in a lower drag coefficient. A lower-center-of-gravity helped give the 280ZX a near 50/50 weight distribution. A power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering system was also implemented This particular example is wears its original paint and on the inside the story is much the same. A true time capsule and certainly one of the cleaner Z-cars on the market. The 5-digit odometer reads “43320” and is believed to be original. An owners manual is also available to go with the vehicle.
