Gateway Classic Cars St. Louis is proud to have for sale this 1978 Datsun 280Z. This car is in good overall shape and shows well. It is mostly original with the exception of an Atomic Orange repaint in 2021. The odometer is currently showing just 18,006 undocumented miles. Under the hood is the original 2.8L inline 6 cylinder engine and a 5 speed manual transmission. The engine sounds very healthy and the transmission shifts as it should. Overall driveability would be considered very good with little to no play in the suspension and steering.

Inside the car you will find that the interior also is in good overall shape but does show some wear and tear in some areas more so than others. The air condition does blow cold and the rest of the options are in working order with he exception of the tacometer sticking every once in a while.

This is a nice example of a survivor 280z that will surely make someone a very happy owner and operator. Don’t miss your chance to own one of these amazing classics that is sure to continue appreciating as time passes.
