2.8L INLINE-6, 3-SPEED AUTO, PB, 4-WHEEL DISCS, A/C, ORIG DOCS W/ MAINT RECORDS!

T-tops, a loaded A/C interior, and a terrific color combo - this 1981 Datsun 280ZX already has an attractive performance classic car pedigree. So it's quite alluring even before you fully see the ideal mix of preservation and restoration that comes on this one-family owned coupe.

Red is always a great way to present a sports car. Of course, it also helps that there was a professional respray in 2015 to make sure it has a nice gloss in the sunshine. This is a one-family owned car where the father passed it to the son. So while the odometer reflects the car's actual mileage, the exceptional presentation of this forty-year-old classic is the real telltale sign of its respected life as a member of the family. We are really beginning to appreciate how sporty these second-gen Z-cars look with their sharper edge profile and NACA scoops in the hood. It also really gets its details right with the pieces like the full rocker trim, and we especially love how the correct Z-car alloys have custom red accent paint to go with the car.

The bold red attitude continues inside. You get a pair of plush velour seats with a center console in-between. The sports steering wheel is on a tilt column, and ... Please ask for the full description.

2.8L INLINE-6, 3-SPEED AUTO, PB, 4-WHEEL DISCS, A/C, ORIG DOCS W/ MAINT RECORDS!

T-tops, a loaded A/C interior, and a terrific color combo - this 1981 Datsun 280ZX already has an attractive performance classic car pedigree. So it's quite alluring even before you fully see the ideal mix of preservation and restoration that comes on this one-family owned coupe.

Red is always a great way to present a sports car. Of course, it also helps that there was a professional respray in 2015 to make sure it has a nice gloss in the sunshine. This is a one-family owned car where the father passed it to the son. So while the odometer reflects the car's actual mileage, the exceptional presentation of this forty-year-old classic is the real telltale sign of its respected life as a member of the family. We are really beginning to appreciate how sporty these second-gen Z-cars look with their sharper edge profile and NACA scoops in the hood. It also really gets its details right with the pieces like the full rocker trim, and we especially love how the correct Z-car alloys have custom red accent paint to go with the car.

The bold red attitude continues inside. You get a pair of plush velour seats with a center console in-between. The sports steering wheel is on a tilt column, and it gives you a clear view to the large speedo and tach. So this is a great place for grand touring comfort. A premium sports car like this came with plenty of factory options like power windows, power locks, power mirrors, cruise control, and AM/FM/cassette stereo. There's a ton of originality in here. It makes for a particularly attractive setup for those who love survivor style, because after all, it can only be original once. So it's exciting to see something that's so correct, loaded, and functional. In fact, you may not see any upgrades, but there is one that you will feel. The factory air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant. So feel free to enjoy the drive with the T-tops out long into the summer season.

The fuel-injected 2.8-liter motor is why this one is always calling for the open road. This engine has a legendary smoothness and rev-happy nature that helped establish Datsun/Nissan as an exciting brand of cars. Since this has remained in the one family all its life so far, it's easy to believe the claim that this is the original motor. And there have been the right investments to keep this a strong runner. It includes a Koyorad aluminum radiator w/electric fan, NKG plug wires, and a performance ceramic coated header feeding the newer Magnaflow exhaust. It fires up with the eagerness that a well-respected FI machine should, and there's silkiness you'll love from the inline-six setup. Out on the road, you experience the harmony of the three-speed automatic transmission, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes.

A car with this kind of history also comes with excellent paperwork. It includes the original warranty card, owner's manual, service manual, and long record of maintenance receipts going back to 1981. This is your opportunity to join the emerging class of Japanese classics in a bold coupe that also has a story to tell. Call today!!!
