There's this great sweet spot where your vintage car also offers value and dependability. This 1983 Datsun 280ZX hits that quality mark. We first bought these coupes decades ago because they were everyday reliable sports cars, but along the way, we fell in love because they were so surprisingly fun to drive. This thoroughly original, well documented, and pristine example might be your last chance to get all those great feelings while still at a value price. Amazingly, this is a 1-owner car with a clean Autocheck history and also very low miles. This car was sold new in St. Petersburg, FL and has been in sunny FL it's entire life!

There is just something elegantly great about the lines of this Z-car. It has the long hood and short deck inspired by the Corvette and the E-Type, but with its own distinctively aggressive sharp-edge style. The Nugget Gold metallic paint is original and has an exceptional presentation for a 30+ year-old classic. Plus, the color-matching bumpers, original pinstriping, and the six-spoke alloy wheels all still look cool today. All the panels and gaps fit together just as a flawlessly engineered Japanese sports car should. But sometimes the most beautiful parts are the asymmetrical ones, such as the NACA hood scoop.

Open the door, and you know this Datsun has lived a pampered life. The tan cloth is just about factory fresh on every surface, from the bucket seats to the carpeted trunk. The 280ZX was not only quick, but also comfortable. This means a long list of desired features, including power windows, power rear defogger, and cruise control - all in perfect working order. The stereo is an AM/FM/cassette model. There are so many adapters out there for modern music players that we think it would be a shame to spoil this unique atmosphere by replacing this very original integrated sound system. Of course, don't think we forgot about the T-tops! These are like magnets constantly attracting you to take out the glass and go for a wind-in-your-hair drive. Plus, thanks to air conditioning that's been converted to modern R-134a, it's even easier to cruise with the roof out even on a hot summer's day.

This car's original 2.8-liter motor provides silky smooth torque and a roar that is definitely reminiscent of the great sports cars from Europe. Thanks to fuel injection, it starts easily and pulls smoothly without getting fussy. Despite the complex-looking engine bay, these cars are rather easy to service, and parts are still plentiful. But what will really seal the deal for you on this one is it has only averaged about 2,250 miles per year. We've even got the maintenance receipts to show you that this low-mileage coupe has been quite well cared for over the years. On the road, this coupe has the perfect balance of a sporty suspension, while at the same time offers comfort features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.

This 280ZX is a coddled example of an appreciating classic at an affordable price. It even has documents like the original window sticker and owner's manual to make it a showstopper for decades to come. This kind of opportunity doesn't come around very often, so call today!
