T-tops, a loaded interior, and a terrific color combo - this 1982 Datsun 280ZX already has an attractive performance classic car pedigree... and that's before you dig into the level of preservation and care this two-owner classic has received over the last 40+ years.
<br><br> The odometer is believed to reflect the full mileage on this Z-car, and that would mean this coupe has only averaged about 930 miles annually. That should really let you know that this coupe has not spent decades doing the daily grind. But you also knew that from the moment you saw the body. The factory-correct Jade Gray Metallic paint has a smooth shine that does a terrific job of showing off the crisp/clean lines that make Datsun's Z-car a legend. The ZX was part of an evolution that took these to a premium place in the market, and this one shows it off nicely with a comprehensive gray pinstripe package that flows over the rear hatch and even highlights the power dome of the sleekly long hood. The whole coupe has a very stock and respected style, right down to the bright polish on the factory alloys.
<br><br> The interior shows off more of this car's pampered life. It's quite stock and preserved, right down to the working courtesy lights. Of course, what you'll like the best are the supple leather seats that are looking terrific. You also have a sports steering wheel and full gauges for the feeling of a true driver's car. The 280ZX was not only quick but also comfortable. This means a long list of desired features, including power windows, power mirrors, an electric rear defogger, cruise control, the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will likely need servicing if you want it to blow ideally cold.) Of course, don't think we forgot about the T-tops! These are a hallmark item that makes for the ideal classic cruiser of this era.
<br><br> The fuel-injected 2.8-liter motor is why this one is always calling for the open road. This engine has a legendary smoothness and rev-happy nature that helped establish Datsun/Nissan as an exciting brand of cars. The way it fires up is yet another reminder of how well cared for this example has been. Out on the road, you experience the harmony of the three-speed automatic transmission, fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes. It's a true grand touring coupe.
<br><br> A car this special also comes with good paperwork. It includes the owner's manual, title documentation, maintenance records, and other details from this car's careful history. This kind of opportunity at a well-loved and well-preserved Z-car doesn't come around very often, so call today!
