The Nissan S30 is the first generation of Z series 3 door 2 seat coupes. Produced as a Datsun by Nissan from 1969 – 1978 it was one of the most successful sports car lines ever produced. The 280Z was introduced in 1975 with an increased 2.8 liter L28 engine equipped with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection. This particular example was optioned in Light Brown Metallic with a Brown interior. It was repainted in a gorgeous Bright Red Metallic in 2014 which still shines like new in the sunlight. It has also been upgraded with a custom set of XXR aluminum rims that really make this beauty stand out in a crowd. With the exception of the paint and the wheels the only other item that is not original to the car is the Kenwood KDC-X889 stereo and speakers. The original interior shows unbelievably well, especially considering the cars age. The odometer currently shows 76,232 miles and it was optioned with a 5 speed manual transmission. It has been recently serviced by a very reputable mechanic who went through everything top to bottom. With the exception of the clock everything, including the A/C, is working as it should and the wear items have all been replaced recently. We would classify this as a number 2 car and would appraise it at $21,950 accordingly. We have priced it below that and challenge you to find a cleaner S30 for what we are asking. If you agree you should reach out before someone else beats you to it!
