For Sale: 1988 Nissan 300ZX in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Sleek style, great features, T-tops, five-speed, and low mileage all make this 1988 Nissan 300ZX 2+2 an attractive and affordable fuel-injected classic. So as you look through the full package, you're going to see a survivor-like presentation mixed with the right investment that makes this one irresistible.


This coupe is believed to be highly original in every way, including likely the factory application of white paint. So in the world of modified Japanese sports cars, you're looking at survivor-style distinction. It's not perfect, but it's quite nice to have a low-mileage car that gives you a glossy factory finish. And the value price means you can always make upgrades if you so decide. But it's especially nice to be offered such a complete and stock example like this because these later cars from the Z31 generation had a smoother style and full color-matched bumpers. So it's the one that feels like it really got the balance of luxury and technology right, and the whole coupe keeps a stock style, right down to the cool 15-inch buzzsaw alloys.


The dark red interior looks striking against the white exterior. So you'll happily take the T-tops out to show this off to the world. But what you'll also notice is that the well-preserved condition signals good care where the roof likely wasn't left out on sunny days. You even get nice details like sunshades and storage bags for the roof. Not only does the interior look good, but this generation was a premium machine that came with plenty of added comfort. This includes power windows, power locks, power mirrors, a premium AM/FM/cassette stereo, and air conditioning (it blows cold thanks to a system upgrade in 2019.). And this one really was built to be driven. That's why the driver's bucket seat can be adjusted to hug your body, and there's full instrumentation with auxiliary readouts high on the dash. Plus, the 2+2 layout gives you rear seats that are easy to fold down for a road trip's worth of luggage, and this has cruise control for an easy grand touring feeling.


What keeps the Z-cars in-demand is the powerhouse. Nissan/Datsun have built their backbone on providing six-cylinder motors that are both reliable and hardy. This 3.0-liter V6 with fuel injection and overhead cam is at the heart of that reputation. So it's great to see it looking stock and clean under the hood. It embodies the best you expect from a Japanese sports car with an engine that fires up readily and it pulls strong out on the road. There's even a five-speed manual transmission with a newer clutch to give you confident control over it all. Plus, you have power rack & pinion steering, four-wheel, power disc brakes, and a fully independent sports suspension.


The sale comes complete with maintenance records and the owner's manual. This is the kind of classic coupe that feels as solid as an everyday driver. So if you're looking for a vintage sports car with a hardy heart, call today!
