1978 Datsun 280Z Ready For A New Owner

1978 Datsun 280Z Ready For A New Owner

Nice Restoration, 1978 Datsun 280Z Ready For A New Owner

Found this coolest example of the old Japanese sports car that was listed on Craigslist about a day ago, looking for a new owner located in Highland Park, Los Angeles, California. As shown here a 1978 Datsun 280Z comes in green and sunroof, all look great for their age and are presented well by photos. The car being offered for sale by the second owner is still in excellent condition in and out with few rust spots and a small dent on the front hood but looks easy to fix.

1978 Datsun 280Z Interior

Not all angles are represented by the photos, but the interior is so nice to see, the brown and black combination looks great here. Some rips were shown on the seat, the dash was covered also the headliner was not shown in the photos, we hope no cracks in there and no minus on the headliner and sunroof. Overall it's so clean and neat for the 40-year-old car.

1978 Datsun 280Z Motor

As shown here the original engine sat nicely on the bay, it's a 2.8 L straight-six engine known as the L28E I6 made by Nissan Motors for the 280Z model. No words about the issue with only 96k original miles were revealed by the current owner. You should come to closer inspection for actual condition.

Detail by owner
This is Conor. He's had that name since 78 from the original owner. When I got this car I received all the paperwork dating back to the original owner of every oil change and maintenance its had. He's lived in Portland Oregon his entire life until last year when I moved here to LA with him. I've honestly gotten more looks and compliments in this thing than anything and I've never felt cooler than when I'm driving him. SO much fun to drive and SO clean for a 78. These things are notorious for rust and to find one thats so clean with only 96k original miles is hard to come by.

Couple small rust spots (under back hatch which is always a trouble spot) and a small dent on the front hood. Don't know how or when that happened but was pretty bummed about it. Luckily thats not a major fix.
