If you’ve been in the market for a 280 Z and are looking for something that is completely turn-key and ready to drive then we have the perfect Z for you!
This 1978 280 Z is a local customer of ours and we have performed 95% of the maintenance and restoration work you see here. We started with an immaculate 54,000 original mile chassis owned by a local Nissan dealer and performed all of the necessary fixes all of these cars need over the years including a complete master fuel injection kit (new fuel injectors and injector harness) and refurbished air conditioning converted to R134a refrigerant with new condenser, dryer and electric fan.
In addition to that, we have performed a complete engine tune-up with a new distributor, spark plugs, NGK plug wires as well as a valve adjustment, new fuel filter, new battery cables, antifreeze flush and fill, rear differential and transmission flush and fill, new clutch fan and belt, new clutch slave cylinder, flush and bleed and complete manifold stud replacement with a ceramic coated Pacesetter header and custom exhaust.
Exterior-wise, this car has a timeless set of Panasport wheels along with upgraded to Tokico shocks and Eibach lowering springs to improve the stance and handling and an MSA body kit to get rid of the unsightly original bumpers.
This car was repainted around 15 years ago and the repaint was performed to a very high degree including the entire engine bay and all door and trunk jams and still shows very well as you can see from the photos.
I don’t often say this but there is not a hint of rust or corrosion to be seen on the car and the chassis and exceptional interior condition reflects the low mileage found on the odometer. This car also comes with all maintenance records dating back to 2005 when current owner took possession.
280z’s with this low of mileage in this type of condition don’t come up very often so if you’re looking for something that has been well-maintained and completely ready to enjoy, contact sales@JDMlegends.com or call us here at 801-685-7900
