For Sale: 1986 Nissan 300ZX in Sierra Vista, Arizona

Vehicle Description

*** SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY. This vehicle is "SOLD AS-IS with NO IMPLIED WARRANTIES." ***
The 1986 Nissan 300ZX was one of the first vehicles to use a digital display dashboard, as well as auditory warning messages (e.g., "Lights are on").  This car is also unique in that it has a back seat, suitable for small children and/or pets. The driver seat firmness is adjustable via air bladders. My Mother purchased this car (new) in Cleveland in 1986. She had it rust-proofed, which is why you may notice some brown within the engine compartment and along the edges of the floorboards. Shortly after purchase, my Mother moved to Mexico, then Arizona. With only 22,400 miles, I took possession of the car in 2008. Having baked in the Arizona sun for 15+ years, I replaced major systems, hoses and wiring, windows, T-Tops, and Burgundy leather interior. Thirteen years later the car has only 81,580 miles; and looks good and drives very good considering its age. The heater and A/C work, but I believe the heater box may be cracked, resulting in minor clicking noise when engaged. This is an old car with many plastic parts, some of which are no longer available. That said, I believe it is in good to very-good condition considering. I have one extra set of T-Tops and some miscelaneous spare parts.  I also have a new custom-made car cover.

As one would expect, a 35-year-old vehicle will have blemishes, and some inoperable parts. While most of the components are functional, I believe the rear window defroster, cruise control are non-operational. Recently, the interior gas lid release broke, requiring the use of the override system in the hatchback.  As well, the passenger seatbelt crumbled during recent use.  It appears to be functional, but should be replaced (I'm searching for a replacement seatbelt buckle).

In June 2022, I had my mechanic perform a thorough tune-up, as I drove the car to and from California.  In July 2022, I replaced all four tires.  I drive the car around town to keep the fluids in motion; oil is changed regularly.
