Chassis: HLS30451049. 47k Miles Shown, TMU. Carbureted L28 Inline-Six. 5-Speed Manual. Restored by Previous Owner. Repainted in Atlanta Blue Metallic. 240Z Bumpers, Seat Covers, Steering Wheel. Rota Wheels. 13 Years of Records. Private Party or Dealer: Private Party
This 1978 Datsun 280Z was acquired by the seller in 2016 from a friend who had owned it for about 13 years. Powered by a carbureted L28 inline-six paired to a 5-speed manual, the car was restored by the previous owner and backdated with the bumpers, seats covers, airbox, and steering wheel from a 240Z. The seller has performed some finishing work, including a recent clutch and transmission service. The car benefits from a recent alignment in preparation for sale and is equipped with cold-blowing A/C, Rota wheels, and rear window louvers. This Z is sold with records for the last 13 years and a clean Georgia title in the seller’s name. The car was given a restoration several years ago by the previous owner and fitted with 240Z front and rear bumpers in the process. It was repainted in BMW Atlanta Blue Metallic, and the seller notes a small run on one A-pillar. Rust repair was performed in the doglegs and rear quarters, and Rota wheels were installed along with a set of rear window louvers. The backdates continue into the cabin, where the stock wheel and seat covers have been replaced with 240Z-style items. All of the interior features are said to work correctly, from the cold-blowing A/C to the new high-intensity bulbs in the dash and dome lights. The stock stereo has been replaced with a modern unit, and a small cut is present on the driver’s door panel. The 47k indicated miles are not believed to be accurate by the seller. The original fuel injected 2.8-liter inline-six has been replaced with a different L28 breathing through dual SU carburetors from Z-Therapy. A 240Z airbox was fitted and painted to match the exterior. The most recent services included a tire rotation and alignment performed this week, and a recent transmission and clutch service were performed by the seller’s Z specialist. The only noted issue is a slightly notchiness in first and second gear that goes away once the car has warmed up. The engine is backed by a 5-speed manual transmission and a 3.91 rear end. The seller has provided several photos of the underside that can be seen in the gallery below. Records for the last 14 years are included covering the restoration and paintwork. The initial restoration totals some $19k, and more recent refurbishment performed by the seller added up to about $6k. A set of fiberglass bumpers is pictured in the gallery and is also included.
