Vehicle Description

This 1990 Nissan 300ZX is part of the new great class of vintage cars that comes with a rev-happy modern multi-valve motor and plenty of modern conveniences. But since it has crossed the 30-year threshold, it also is eligible for most classic car insurance and perks. And when it's as nicely presented as this all-black T-top example, it also will get plenty of attention around town, too.

Everyone loves a Z-car, and when this generation first hit the scene in 1990, it made a big impression. The rounded design almost looked like Nissan was doing impossible things with sheetmetal. It has that perfect low-sung sportscar style that made it a true exotic (heck, even Lamborghini eventually borrowed the headlight design.) It really looks fantastic in its correct Diamond Black Pearl. It has a nice gloss on this highly original finish, and the front bumper and hood look like they were nicely matched in a respray to erase the two places that often would have shown the most use. In fact, this car really does have the right mix of both preservation and the right investment in sporty style. That's why you not only get a cool-looking set of aftermarket six-spoke alloys, but also the factory Z wheels come with the sale, too.

There's little doubt that this car was built by and for drivers when you climb inside. The black leather buckets are firm and grippy, holding you in place during spirited driving. They are also engineered to keep you comfortable for long-distance hauls, too. Just like the exterior, the interior is in exceptional condition so you know this all-black sports car was treated with the right care. The dash is low to give you excellent sight lines in this driver's coupe. All the controls are at your fingertips, many as close as the edge of the instrument panel. As Nissan's flagship, this Z came with loaded with features like power windows, power locks, power driver's seat, and the stereo has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD unit with USB input. You know you want to take off the T-tops and cruise this Z all-year round, and that's no problem thanks to the automatic climate control that includes modern R134a air conditioning.

The 3.0-liter DOHC V6 s a truly marvelous motor. With 222 horsepower on tap, this fuel-injected, multi-valve powerplant loves to rev, and it makes a wonderful guttural growl at full throttle. These engines proved to be exceptionally hardy, and while they respond well to modifications, this is believed to be the original motor and remains stock. In fact, part of the appeal of a sports car like this is it fires up as reliability and has the same everyday usability as any other Nissan. This is backed up by great factory driving features like the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and cruise control. But the moment you feel like hitting the open road, the fully independent sports suspension and four-wheel disc brakes remind you instantly how the Z car has earned its racing stripes.

The sale comes complete with all the right paperwork, including the original window sticker, owner's manual, and a maintenance records. This is the new class of vintage sports cars where you get everything you want, including classic car respect. We only have this example, and we doubt you'll ever find one as fantastically preserved at a value price ever again. Call today!!!
