1978 Datsun Z-Series

Datsun Z-Series (1978)
for sale

Price: US $15,000.00


My husband is selling his Datsun after owning it for 40+ years! Moved to an apartment in Florida with no garage, so he's selling his baby. He is the second owner, having purchased it when it was 1.5 years old. He has all service receipts and clean title! Car starts quickly and runs great. Serviced by the same mechanic for past 15 years who welcomes inquiries at S&W Tire and Car Care – ask for Lou Pleiman 859-431-6020. Mention the “yellow Datsun” 😊 Just checked out by the mechanic June 11th and it only needed some hoses replaced - all service was completed. Other than installing new racing seats, steering wheel, and radio, the car is all original. The original seats, steering wheel, and radio will also go with the car and are in very good condition (see pictures). Back seats are mint condition. Minor rust on painted surfaces - pictures below show in detail. More pictures available upon request. Car was repainted in the mid-80's to original color and professionally undercoated to prevent rust. The undercarriage has very minimal rust. New deluxe headliner installed 5 years ago. All carpeting throughout is black (no fading). Professionally tinted windows. 4-speed, 2.8 L straight six-cylinder engine, rack and pinion steering, factory air conditioning (not very cold). Fuel-gage not working; all other gages and clock working perfectly. “Datsun 280z Service Manual” used by mechanics is included.
Nice looking car. Has the car any rust perforations [past or present]? Accidents? Do you have engine compression readings? General condition of motor and running gear? Is that a custom color or original color? I am in Canada so would need assistance with shipping if I got it. Would you help with that? Thanks for your time to answer questions.
ANSWERS:Rust perforations - there has been no rusting through the metal on any part of the car. I have owned it since it was 1.5 years old
Accidents - none
Engine compression readings - done about 5 years ago (1, 000 miles), but will need to look for the reciept. Readings were fine. We might need to call S&W (phone number in description) for exact results.
General condition of motor and running gear - everything is good! Just serviced in June and no major problems. Feel free to call Lou and S&W.
Color - the color is original.
Shipping - unfortunately I don't have experience shipping a car, but many companies will transport autos. I suggest looking online for information. Let me know if you have trouble.
