Description for Datsun Z-Series 1978

With a vintage exterior look, all the right interior upgrades, and a fuel-injected heart, this 1978 Datsun 280Z is the one that celebrates those who love to enjoy their classics to the fullest.
The long hood with lengthy power bulge, fastback profile, and the tailgate that neatly integrates into the racecar-inspired rear - the Datsun Z was an instant benchmark for sports car style. The copper color represents the era correctly on this '70s-style machine. It has a nice gloss in the sunshine that will make you enjoy sunny-day drives, but it's not so impeccable that you get nervous if the weather turns wet. And that's the right spirit, because after all, the Datsun Z-car is all about being the sports car for the everyday life. As you look inside, you'll see there have been some nice upgrades to keep it that way in modern times.
They invested nicely in this black interior. High-back bucket seats, taut door panels, and plush carpeting make this a great place for two people to spend some time. In fact, you've got some great modern upgrades like an AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth, power windows, cool blue LED lighting, and provisions for R134a air conditioning. The rear-view mirror even has a backup camera integrated into it! But while the upgrades make this comfy, they also don't take away for the pure driving feeling we love in this Datsuns. You get a grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel, perfectly-placed stick shift, and a full set of gauges set deep into the dash.
The fuel-injected 2.8-liter inline-six is a fantastic motor. It's both rev-happy and torquey, which has helped Datsun/Nissan establish its reputation for fun cars. As you look through the engine bay, you can see all the right signs of good maintenance, right down to the Optima red top battery. The motor fires up readily and runs strong. And you get to enjoy it to the fullest thanks to the control of the five-speed manual transmission. It provides plenty of sports car fun on your favorite roads thanks to the fully independent suspension, power brakes w/discs up front, and the modern grip of Michelin tires.
Complete with restoration photos, this is the iconic coupe that has a classic look and all the upgrades you want. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call now!
