For Sale: 1990 Nissan 300ZX in St. Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

Nissan stepped up its game within the sportscar market in 1990 with the introduction of the new Z32 Generation Fairlady Z, now called the 300ZX. The body would be wider, rounder, and possess a much smoother shape. It would also carry the most state-of-the-art technology available at the time for the top end Twin Turbo model. Creating 300 horsepower, the 3.0L DOHC 24-valve V6 was fitted with two Garrett AiResearch turbocharger with dual intercoolers. Mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, it propelled the 300ZX to 60mph in under 6 seconds! These special cars also had Anti-Lock Brakes with 4-piston front calipers along with Super HICAS (High Capacity Actively Controlled Steering) rear wheel steering, first introduced in the Nissan Skyline. It was quite advanced and named Motor Trend's Import of the Year for 1990 and remained on their Top 10 List for all seven years it was offered in the United States.

Offered here is a superbly kept 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo Coupe finished in all original Aztec Red over Charcoal Cloth interior! Boasting just 3 owners from new, it has been pampered for only 12,932 miles. It sold new from Pioneer Nissan-Datsun in Lubbock, Texas and remained with the original owner thru 2018. Each of the next two owners would hold onto it for one year, both taking advantage of the growing collector market for original JDM cars in this condition. It features all the options to include removable glass T-tops, automatic climate control, power windows/locks/heated mirrors, 8-way adjustable driver seat, dual Sport/Touring suspension modes, cruise control, carpeted floor mats, rear window defrost with wiper, upgraded Sony AM/FM/CD/XM/AUX radio unit with Kenwood speakers, and rear cargo sunshade.

The most recent enthusiast owner purchased this car in July 2019 with 10,390 miles on the odometer and installed a new battery and Pirelli PZero Rosso tires that October. He would wait until the summer of 2020 to carry out a no expense spared comprehensive service to ensure it would perform to his high standards. This included new timing belt/tensioner, new BDE Performance VTC intake cam gears, timing sprocket gear, camshaft/crankshaft seals, idler pulleys, new water pump, thermostat, coolant bypass hoses/clamps, new starter, new transmission & engine mounts, brake fluid flush, full synthetic oil change with performance oil filter, a/c conversion to R134a, and new air filters! All parts are OEM Nissan components with exception to the improved BDE cam gears.

The transmission was removed to install a new McLeod Stage I Supremacy Street Tuner clutch, improved Heavy Duty cast iron clutch fork & springs, Nismo pilot bearing, stainless steel clutch cable, and chromoly shortened pivot ball. The suspension would receive new OEM front and rear shock absorbers, front sway bar end links, and SPL Titanium Pro adjustable rear upper control arms along with full alignment. A gorgeous Megan Racing stainless steel cat-back exhaust system with round tips really adds a nice look and sound! More recently in July 2021, all 6 fuel injectors were upgraded to the newer OEM 380cc style with adapter kit. All parts were sourced through Concept Z Performance in Phoenix, AZ and installed professionally by Lithgow Automotive Inc.

These early 300ZX cars are among the most desirable as they did not come equipped with driver airbag, which slightly reduced the overall weight of the cars as compared to later versions. It will come complete with original Bose radio head unit, owner's manual, multiple keys, T-top shades & storage bags, untouched spare & inflator, original jack & lug wrench, all recent service records, and damage-free CarFax report. According to the supplemental window sticker, which included a $2000 dealer markup, listed originally for $37,333. These are remarkable cars to drive, and this 300ZX Twin Turbo is no exception! Finding one of this caliber with such low milage is no easy task in today's market! So many of these cars have fallen victim to tasteless aftermarket modifications and abused on the streets. Do not hesitate with this special Z32 Twin Turbo if you have been looking for collector quality example! It will not last long!
