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. Five digit odometer reads 32k miles.

Most of this car has original paint on it. The hood has been repainted at some point and there is evidence of small touch-up behind both front wheels, but the rest of the car looks original. The original paint is presentable but thin and has fine scratches. I have not found any major rust on this car. There are some very small bubbles around the windshield. The under carriage is nice solid and very clean for a car this age. The interior is also mostly original and in really nice shape. No rips in the seats or door panels and the carpet is really nice. The only two things to note in the interior 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 appears to need a refrigerant charge to cool.

As you can see from the pictures, this car sits beautifully. It has been lowered on Tein springs. It also has adjustable control arms up front, bump steer spacers and poly bushed sway bar end links (front and rear) installed. It has a header going to a 2.5" exhaust into a single Dynomax muffler that really sounds good... Sort of a mellow deep tone, not loud. It also has a very pretty aftermarket aluminum radiator and an aftermarket fuel rail installed. It’s sitting on a nice set of XXR wheels with brand new 225/50/ZR16 tires on all 4 corners. It has recently been treated to a full service (Plugs, wires, cap rotor, oil and filter). It has a drop in K&N air filter. Also, the injector electrical connectors and hoses have been replaced.

I have owned it for about a year, and it’s been a great car, never failed to start and runs like a top. This would make a great addition to an existing collection, or an entry level classic, or even a daily driver!!!! If you have any questions, please ask!!!
