In the 1980s there was few quicker sportscars than this 1983 Datsun 280ZX Turbo. It's this kind of legacy that makes it a rapidly appreciating classic, and you're looking possibly the best low mileage survivor example out there. Completely original inside and out, and loaded with all the right features, this is one of the best bets in affordable classics you can take home today.

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 Orange Mist metallic paint is original and has an exceptional presentation for a 30+ year-old classic. Plus, the color-matching bumpers, turbo lower door graphics, added headlight covers, slotted rear window covers, and the unique turbo alloy wheels all still look cool today. 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 Turbo 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, it's even easier to cruise with the roof out even on a hot summer's day.

This car's original 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 smooth six, the performance comparisons started mentioning BMWs and Porsches...yes, this car is quick. Despite the complex-looking engine bay, these are rather easy to service, and parts are still plentiful. But what will really seal the deal for you is it has only averaged less than 1,800 miles per year. We've even got the maintenance records to show you that this low-mileage coupe has been quite well cared for over the years. On the road, this turbo Z 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 exceptionally affordable price. It even has documents like the 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!
