Lot 650: 1977 Datsun 280Z


%%wppa%% %%slide=756%% %%size=auto%%

1977 Datsun 280Z with highly desirable factory 5-Speed and A/C. Local car sold new out of Topping Motors in Tacoma, WA. Original window sticker included. Sky blue (light metallic blue) with black interior.

Outstanding condition overall. Outstanding paint, exceptional interior. Everything works (including clock) except A/C- Leaky hose. A/C has been converted from R-12. Runs very strong. New fuel injectors, MAF, new tires and wheels, slotted drilled front rotors, rear bumper rechromed, new door locks and ignition switch.

Interior which was one of the best features of the 280Z is immaculate with original uncracked dash (very rare). Seats reupholstered in leather upgrade to original factory pattern. Outstanding quality sound system discreetly installed. Folder of service receipts and manuals included.

Many feel the 280Z was the best of the series 1 Z-cars. Fuel injection fixed the carb issues of the earlier cars. The 77-78 280Zs were considered more desirable due to the improved appearance over the 75-76 models and optional availability of the 5-speed. This an example of one of the most desirable Z-Cars due to the right year and the right equipment. One of the most sought color combinations, too.

Very hard to find one now that has not rusted away or been heavily modified. Series 1 Z-Cars have been on the rise in value and are predicted to climb even higher.
