1983 Datsun 280ZX Turbo

1983 Datsun 280ZX Turbo For Sale

Found this one offered for sale on Craigslist, the second generation Z-car, a 1983 Datsun 280ZX Turbo, twin brother of Nissan Fairlady 280Z. That was listed about six days ago in excellent condition, ready to go for the new owner. It's the Japanese sports car created as a serious contender for American muscle cars at that time, like the Pontiac Trans Am, and one of the top five most recognizable Japanese-made two-seaters.

The Nissan S130 platform has been recognized as a classic 1980s sports car for the last few decades. However, their values have seemingly always been fairly stagnant due to large-scale production numbers that hardly made them rare. Now that all has changed, they are hard to find nowadays, because most of them have become sheet metal in landfills, and few of them have survived like this one example.

Detail about this Datsun by Owner
It's a very nice 280ZX, purchased last July. I bought it with 37,000 original miles on it and everything is stock including the original paint job. Features include original leather interior, original stereo and dash, digital speedometer, t-tops, catalytic converter and tires that are still in good condition. Also comes with an extra set of snow tires in great condition. It is a very fun car to drive especially during the summer when you can take off the t-tops. I also have all the original paperwork including the window sticker. It is in phenomenal condition and definitely worth.
