A cool two-tone exterior, T-tops, loaded A/C interior, and a turbocharger on Datsun's legendary inline-six...This 1982 Datsun 280ZX Turbo is a well-kept classic with everything you want.
The first impression is both vintage and premium. After all, the two-tone is an intricate and era-correct presentation where a silver car has a distinct blue hood that also delicately flows into the door panels. We believe this was applied within the last 5 years, and so you get a good shine of distinction without anything getting too fancy to keep you from driving this Z-car. After all, a vintage presentation like this is meant to be out there in the world and turning heads. The shapely creased front end, offset naca duct, clean glass, sport mirrors, and distinct four-spoke factory alloys are all part of a stylishly detailed vintage presentation.
The T-tops let you open this one up to the world, and the gray cloth upholstery is both comfy and appreciated when the sun is shining inside. It's a very stock style, and so you may find some areas that have aged. But what you'll also appreciate are all the classic details from the working door courtesy lights to the stock AM/FM/cassette stereo. It all reminds you that these Z-cars were moving into the luxury sports car category in this era. So this also means you get a long list of desired features, including power windows, full gauges, a rear defogger, and cold-blowing factory air conditioning. This is a 2+2, and so there's a rear seat for occasional use, but in a road-trip-ready classic like this, it's also great for folding down and carrying extra luggage.
This car's smooth-revving, fuel-injected turbocharged 2.8-liter is directly descended from the engines that powered the famous early Z-cars. But when the Nissan engineers bolted a turbocharger to the silky six, the performance comparisons started mentioning BMWs and Porsches...yes, this car is quick. This is believed to have been rebuilt about the same time as the repaint, and it has a strong-running nature to reinforce this feeling. On the road, this turbo Z has the sporty feeling of a fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes. This is well-balanced with grand touring features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control.
This is the cool, clean, and turbocharged Japanese classic you've been waiting for. So don't let it slip away, call today!
