1978 Datsun 280Z for sale in the Detroit showroom. This 1978 280Z is powered by

2.8 L L28E SOHC I6 with 170 hp at 5600 rpm with a 5 speed manual Transmission with actual miles on it.The 1978 Datsun 280Z has a new clutch master cylinder,new clutch slave cylinder,new battery,and brakes with low miles on them.For the 280Z, engine size was again increased, this time to 2.8 L, by enlarging the bore of the L26 engine to create the L28, and a reliable Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection system was added.1978 models received bumpers with recessed channels added to the faces of the bumpers themselves, that blended into corrugated or accordion style black rubber extension trim. 280Zs no longer received the full size spare tire, and instead had a "space saver" spare and a larger fuel tank. This resulted in a raised rear deck area made of fiberboard, reducing cargo space. In 1977–78 an optional 5-speed manual transmission was available alongside the 4-speed manual, and the 3-speed automatic options, which included a "5-speed" emblem on the left bottom edge of the rear hatch.1978 also saw an update from the charcoal painted hubcap style (with a chrome Z floating in the amber center emblems) to a hubcap that resembled an alloy wheel, bearing a center cap with a chrome Z floating in a black circle.This 1978 Datsun 280Z for sale can be seen at www.gatewayclassiccars.com, or call 313-982-3100 for additional information.
