For Sale: 1976 Datsun 280Z in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

The 1976 Datsun 280Z may already be a legend, but this custom one will make you legendary. The flame-kissed exterior looks hot, and the custom A/C interior keeps you cool. But what you'll love most of all is the Chevy 350ci V8 power upgrade under the hood.

The first thing that grabs your attention is, of course, the paintwork. The front metallic gray is burning hot, and you see that as the yellow and orange are airbrushed into the flame. And we love how it all scorches against the metallic blue. It's a commanding full package, but this one is still built to be a driver you take out and enjoy. After all, if you love being a disruptor, you'll just love making classic hot rods jealous with the finish on a Datsun. But that's far from the only custom touch. This has a sporty and sleek front end with a custom front bumper package that looks race-inspired. There's a similar style out back where the bumper has been expertly deleted for an awesomely smooth style. A ducktail rear spoiler, hood callouts, and an awesome set of 17-inch alloys complete this upgraded custom style.

Just like the exterior, the interior is quite custom, and it goes for the bold. The blue and gray of the exterior sets the tone for the full custom interior. The two-tone is nicely intertwined on the door panels, center console, dash, capering, and even the steering wheel. And we especially love the seats that look terrific with the custom design that also brings back the orange from the flames for a custom Z-car graphic stitched into the headrest. Details like the upgraded shifter and large speedo/tach deeply recessed into the dash remind you a proper 280Z is a terrific driver's car. And the cold-blowing air conditioning reminds you this powerful restomod was made to cruise, too.

There's nothing Japanese about the engine bay. That's the unmistakable appearance of an American V8. And it has the hardy look, right down to those polished center-bolt valve covers. This is a 5.7-liter/350 cubic-inch V8 that inhales deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and exhales through shorty headers. It's a nice power upgrade that also has good supporting components, like a newer battery, an electric fan, and an HEI distributor. The V8 upgrade is paired with a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission that's built to handle the extra torque as well as provide overdrive comfort. The reason why you use a Z-car for an upgrade like this is that you get to take full advantage of its sharp-handling fully-independent suspension. Plus, there are power brakes, front discs, and modern sport tires.

This is the custom Z-car that's distinct, powerful, and absolutely cool. So don't let this deal slip away. Call today!!!
