This rare Z was custom ordered and I have dealer documentation for the one of a kind stripes etc... I also have a set of reproduction factory SAP stripes and mirrors to go with it. This car was loved by a single enthusiast owner and meticulously maintained with extensive original documentation! The car was fresh out of 25 year storage when I acquired it... completely unmolested... fully serviced, it looks runs and drives excellent. It retains its unmodified matching numbers drivetrain, body panels, and original paint and interior... all in excellent condition It retains the majority of its factory parts and factory undercoating. Super straight and clean. It is an excellent runner/driver with no squeaks, rattles or funny business!. I am a serious Z collector...

The body is completely rust free and straight. Frame, floors, and chassis are totally solid... underside is super straight and retains most of its factory undercoating. Paint is all original except for the drivers headlight bucket from a crack repair and the hood from chips... it presents amazingly well with some minor blemishes and a bit of patina... rear hatch has some fading but for a 40 plus year old all original paint Z the car is fabulous.
The interior is exceptionally clean... panels, carpet, and trim all look great... Dash has 1 minor crack... I have a full face molded cover I will install if wanted. Drivers seat has just a little stress. Gauges, lights, and electronics all work properly INCLUDING the clock!! Dealer installed 8 track deck still works great as does the power antenna, warning lights, buzzers, etc.
Original L28 motor was removed and professionally rebuilt with warranty... Went through and refreshed everything in the drivetrain etc. The car starts idles and runs fantastic... has great power and sounds good. 5 speed Trans shifts smooth and strong through the gears!!
