In 1979 an X was added to the Z name, creating the 280ZX and a new legacy. The 79' 280ZX was also a complete redesign. The driveline, including the 2.8L inline 6 cylinder engine, was retained from the 78' 280Z. The new ZX was available in both a 2 seat and 4 seat (2+2) platform. An emphasis on driver comfort and ride quality was instilled in the new ZX, it was intended to be a Grand Touring car. It was a bit heavier and softer than the previous Z car. The seats were more comfortable, the suspension was softer, and better sound insulation was used as well. The exterior design featured less rounded lines and better integrated safety bumpers. 1979 also marked the beginning Datsun's global transition to the Nissan name, as it was co-branded "Datsun by Nissan" in the American market through the 1983 model year. These early Japanese sports cars are climing in value. To view this 1979 Datsun 280ZX by Nissan in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video visit or our St. Louis showroom.
