1975 Datsun 280Z
We have another great example of a 280Z up for consignment here at JDM Legends. This one is a 1975, 4-speed manual that spent most if it's life in California which is evident by the excellent chassis condition. We deal with a lot of Z's here and when contemplating the purchase of any older Z car, chassis condition is the most important aspect and this car is in great condition. Very solid and no evidence of any serious rust or corrosion. The car was repainted sometime in California in the original 301 brown metallic color and the paint is in good condition with minor knicks and scratches as can be seen in the photos. In addition to that, the interior is also in great condition as can be seen in the photos. The dash was cracked as 90% of them are at this point so we have taken care of a full-face dash cap and replaced the worn floor mats. The odometer shows 69,660 miles and the current owner believes that to be original and the pedals, seats and chassis seem to back up the claim but the mileage cannot be confirmed.
At some point in this Z's history, the original engine had been replaced with an era-correct L28 unit with an N42 block and cylinder head. In addition to that, we have gone through and replaced the original fuel pump, pressure regulator, lines and fuel filter and dropped the fuel tank and had the fuel strainer removed, cleaned and tank re-coated which is a common problem for 280Z's of this generation. The braking system has also been addressed with the replacement of all of the factory soft lines, new wheel cylinders and brake master cylinder before a full fluid flush and bleed. We have also gone through and performed a comprehensive tune-up which involved going through the ignition system, setting timing, valve adjustment, vacuum leak check/fix, MAF calibration and air fuel ratio check to ensure this Z is in proper running order.
This Z can now be enjoyed for years to come, this Z in very original condition and can be purchased as-is or we can also provide any additional restoration or modification the new owner desires here at JDM Legends.
