For Sale: 1979 Datsun 280ZX in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

The sleek black paint with a red interior is such a great look that we bet that's what first caught your eye on this 1979 Datsun 280ZX. And as you keep digging, you're going to discover well-kept originality. At the same time, there have also been the right investments to let you enjoy this fuel-injected five-speed classic to the fullest.

The factory-correct black paint continues to have a deep gloss that highlights this attractive long hood and fastback profile. And all the panels and gaps fit together with the precision-engineered feeling we expect from a Japanese sports car. But what is really impressive is that this shows the right signs of being the factory application. It tells you this coupe has been well-respected over the years, and backing up this feeling are thousands $$$$ in maintenance receipts over the last decade. More than just preserving this classic, they also made sure to give it the right sporty additions, like the Konig wheels and the deeply tinted windows that go well with the black paint.

We love the look of the red interior against the black. And when you look inside, you can see this is a classic built for driving. This was the first year for the S130 redesign of the 280ZX. What that means is a more luxurious interior built for grand touring. So you get plenty of nice factory features like power windows, power side mirrors, cruise control, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) There are also the right upgrades for better modern driving enjoyment, including reupholstered high-back bucket seats, a cup holder center console, LED interior lights, and an AM/FM/CD stereo. And the dual-spoke sports steering wheel, large speedo/tach, and recessed gauges in the middle of the dash are all part about what gets you excited to get in and go for a drive.

The 2.8-liter six-cylinder motor is what really makes this car a legend. It has a torque-filled nature and an inherent smoothness from the inline configuration. And this is a generation with factory fuel injection to deliver the best in power and consistency. This one upholds that desired level of Japanese quality with a set that has been so well-respected that even the under-hood light still works. It fires up and runs with confidence. Plus, the five-speed manual transmission gives you confident control of it all thanks to a new clutch installed in 2019. And speaking of control these are excellent drivers thanks to a fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records. Here's the ideal mix of classic style in a driver-ready package. And at a price like this, you know you don't want to miss this deal. Call today!!!
