Auction Watch: 1979 Datsun 280ZX

Find this 1979 Datsun 280ZX here on eBay bidding for $2,827 reserve-not-met with 5 days to go, located in Cookeville, TN. Tip from David.






From eBay listing:

1979 280zx, Slick Top, 5 speed, low miles

Offering my 280zx for sale. This is a very solid, great driving low mileage car with a few basic modifications. This is a 2+2 model, and is in very nice condition for a 38 year old car. Body is solid and straight, interior is really nice, and the car drives great. Odometer shows 32k miles on it. I have no reason to believe the mileage is not correct by the condition of the car and the way it drives. However, this car is pre-17 digit VIN, so I cannot run a Carfax to verify it.

Most of this car has original paint on it. The hood has been repainted at some point, but the rest of the car looks original. I have not found any major rust on this car. There are some very small bubbles around the windshield. The interior is also mostly original and in really nice shape. The only two things to note are two dash cracks and the headliner cloth has been replaced with a sprayed on surface that actually works really well with the car.

This is a 5 speed car, so it’s fun to drive. Being a “Slick top” makes it nice and rigid and no awful T-top or sunroof leaks to deal with. This car also has 4 wheel disk brakes, power steering and air conditioning. The A/C is complete and the compressor clicks on but it needs an R12 charge.

As you can see from the pictures, this car sits beautifully. It has been lowered on Tokico springs. It also has adjustable control arms up front and bump steer spacers installed. It has a header installed, as well as a very pretty aftermarket aluminum radiator and an aftermarket fuel rail. It’s sitting on a nice set of XXR wheels with BFG 225/55/16 tires. Tires have about half tread left. It has recently been treated to a full service (Plugs, wires, cap rotor, oil and filter). Also, the injector connectors and hoses have been replaced.

This car is 100% daily driveable. Fly in and drive it home. Clear TN title in my name. Buyer responsible for shipping if required. Closest airports are Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga, all about an hour and a half away. Any questions, please ask. Selling to make room for a new toy.

  1. I always wondered how the Z-cars went from where they started out to this in only 6 or 7 years.
