For Sale: 1980 Datsun 280ZX in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

A terrific color combo, sleek style, fuel-injected motor, and an A/C interior - this 1980 Datsun 280ZX already has an attractive list of everything you want in a great cruising classic... and that's before you dig into the ideal mix of preservation and style on this loaded coupe.


The factory-correct Alpine White is a great color that still looks good in modern times. It shows all the right signs of being the original application, and there is a shiny and smooth style that knows how to impress. And the straightness of the panels gives the paint a great canvas and shows that this coupe has led a well-respected life so far. In fact, you'll see a feeling of originality throughout this car in key components that could suggest (although unproven) a true survivor. It has the right look for those who appreciate a true classic. The clean bumper highlights the sharper edge front of the second-gen Z-car, the fastback rear is one of the purest designs ever, and the classic hubcaps have a unique design we rarely see. It all makes for a stock icon in a time capsule-like form.


If you were attracted to the touch of red in the pinstriping, then you're going to love to open the door to the full red interior. And just like the exterior, this is stock, clean, and exceptionally presented. Datsun started to really understand what grand touring comfort meant when designing the ZX. That means high-back bucket seats that hug your body, an armrest center console, an interior that feels nicely plush, and a sports steering wheel engineered to give you a clear view of the full gauge package. And the level of preservation and care means you'll love this one down to the details, like how the radio is still the Datsun stock AM/FM unit and the full dome light package is working - including the under-dash lights. And while you have the stock air conditioning control, it has now been upgraded to modern R134a refrigerant.


The engine bay has a cool sense of style. It takes red cues from the pinstripe and interior to upgrade details like the air cleaner housing. But this need for red also has a practical side with upgraded plug wires and an Optima red-top battery. Plus, the shining newer radiator goes well with the rest of the tidy components. But overall, you'll also notice a detailed stock appearance where even the inspection light is still mounted to the inner fender. At the heart of it all is the 2.8-liter motor. This is one of the most desirable powerhouses around because the inline-six has an inherent smoothness, and the ZX had fuel injection to make it both sporty and consistent. So this classic coupe has an easy feeling that will make you think about driving it every day. And this one really has a fully built package that makes it relaxed yet sharp for any time driving. This includes the fully independent suspension, power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel power disc brakes.


Complete with the owner's manual, you have a beautifully stock example of a rapidly appreciating classic. So if you're looking for an authentic classic car feeling on a coupe you can both cherish and drive, you know this is the one. Call today!!!
