1976 Datsun Z-Series Additional Info:

Well, I used to find stuff like this all the time.Not so much anymore.What this is is a 1978 Datsun 280Z I got it in Southern Arizona, near Tucson. Painted present green over original factory light blue. And will need new paint again.It is a Arizona rustfree car. Very nice inner front wheelwells, nice clean rustfree floors, rear tailgate ledge,spare tire box,. Rails have some damage on back sections, Very little rust on drivers side dogleg with passenger side very nice. As are the rockers, inner and outer, on both sides.It was a project being built but not finished or running and driving. And is being sold like that. The drivetrain is from a late model 280ZX non turbo. P79 head. Engine looks fairly fresh. Compression 145-150psi. I did not run it as there is more to be done to get it going again. no air flow meter,injectors look fresh but not hooked up yet, radiator not hooked up, distributor cap,plug wires,etc.There is no dashboard,door panels, carpet, vinyl, gauges, switches including ignition, etc. No seats, center console and I imagine much more. There is a tub with a lot of parts in it. Door handles, hoses, vents, armrest, etc.The wiring harness for the dash is still intact. There are performance upgrades like coils, front and rear sway bars with poly bushings, new struts, braided brake lines, new diff mount, header exhaust with large pipe, polished valve cover,, rear decklid spoiler., nice rims with fairly new low profile tires. Being a 82-83 280ZX drivetrain installed, the 5 speed tranny is the close ratio. The driveshaft is fairly new with a company label still on it. This is a factory AC car with most everything appearing to be there.-. The leading edge of the hood has damage, as do the front and rear bumper corners, probably from being in storage forever.This will be a great car to restore or build anything you want. Great bones to work with.The engine should be good to go but no guaranties on that. After completing the hookup, it will need all fluids changed,filters, major tuneup, belts,hoses,brakes bled, gas tank flushed and all the rest of the fun stuff to get a longtime sitting car going again. But this car will be worth that and will be a great one to work with.It will be hard to find a better,straighte, more rustfree body than this one.I travel around the West Coast with my truck and trailer and might be able to get it to you or close. And can arrange trucking to Long Beach California shippers for overseas buyers for $300. Clean straight title.Bidders with less than 10 positive feedback must contact me before bidding or else bid will be cancelled.
