Vehicle Description

This 1982 Datsun 280ZX Turbo is a two-owner car with an exceptional level of preservation and originality. So it's your choice to appreciate it for a cherished low-mileage classic that's loaded with the best features - including A/C. Or you can love it for being the T-top turbocharged five-speed road carver that makes these Z-cars a true legend.

This coupe has only averaged about 1,500 miles annually. That should really let you know that this coupe has not spent decades doing the daily grind. But you also knew that from the moment you saw the body. The factory-correct Jade Gray Metallic paint also shows all the right signs of being the factory original application. It has a smooth shine and even feels smooth to the touch. So it does a terrific job of showing off the crisp/clean lines that make Datsun's Z-car a legend. The ZX was part of an evolution that took these to a premium place in the market, and this one shows it off nicely with a comprehensive gray stripe package that flows over the rear hatch and even highlights the power dome of the sleekly long hood. The whole coupe has a very stock style, but there are also a few well-placed upgrades like the tail panel insert, Datsun branded fog lights, and aerodynamic headlight covers. These features aren't out of character for the period, and actually, just look like the kind of additions the dealer would have sold you. So It adds distinction while sticking to the theme of a loaded car that deserved to be preserved.

The interior shows off more of this car's papered life. It's quite stock and preserved, right down to the working courtesy lights. Of course, what you'll like the best are the comfy front bucket seats, sports steering wheel, and full gauges of a true driver's car. The 280ZX Turbo was not only quick but also comfortable. This means a long list of desired features, including power windows, power locks, electric rear defogger, and cruise control. It's a 2+2 with rear seats. They don't get much use because a sports car is all about the driver, but the extra space is great for folding these flat and having more room for luggage on your weekend getaways. Of course, don't think we forgot about the T-tops! These are like magnets constantly attracting you to take out the glass and go for a wind-in-your-hair drive. Plus, thanks to R134a air conditioning, it's even easier to cruise with the roof out even on a hot summer's day.

This car's smooth-revving, fuel-injected turbocharged 2.8-liter is directly descended from the engines that powered the famous early Z cars. But when the Nissan engineers bolted a turbocharger to the silky smooth six, the performance comparisons started mentioning BMWs and Porsches...yes, this car is quick. And the way this fires up and runs reminds you of its low mileage and decades of respect. You take full control of this coupe thanks to features like the five-speed manual transmission and fully independent suspension. In fact, control is a main theme because this is subtly upgraded to be a better driver. The classic four-spoke alloys wheels now have Yokohama tires that provide better grip than what you were getting in 1982nd the four-wheel power disc brake package has been upgraded to drilled and slotted rotors.

This 280ZX is a coddled example of an appreciating classic that's also offered for an affordable price. This kind of opportunity doesn't come around very often, so call today!
