Exceptional Example of this iconic Japanese Sports Car. Imported from Californian private collection just over a year ago this Datsun has been slightly modified since it arrived in the UK. Same 2 seater body as the 240. this 280 has the larger capacity 2. 8 straight six engine. the California fuel injection has been removed in favour of a brand new triple weber conversion which not only looks and sounds great but performs very well indeed. A new six branch exhaust manifold coupled with single silencer large bore exhaust completes the engine modifications. A new electric cooling fan keeps the under bonnet temperature where it should be. The vehicle starts first time after a pump of the throttle to prime the carbs and runs smoothly once the engine has warmed a little. gives a great induction roar for those that like carbs over injection.
The suspension and brakes were already uprated in the US with polybushes and drilled brake discs etc. rides. handles and stops very well.
The 2. 8 engine is mated to the original 4 speed transmission which shifts as it should.
The body on this Datsun is original and possibly the best around. There are no signs of repairs and having seen the car from all angles including underneath its the best I've seen. The paint is mostly original from what I can tell and therefore is far from perfect. there are a few dings and blemishes as you would expect. The pictures were taken this week and the car presents as it looks in the pictures.
The ugly American impact bumpers were removed and fibreglass replacements including front and rear spoilers were shipped from America more in keeping with the vehicles sleek bodylines. Wheels and tyres were replaced with Satin black finished Rotas which fill the bolt on arches very well and give a classic car a contemporary look.
The seats must have been recovered at some time as they are in great condition. as is the whole interior. door panels. headliner. carpets are all in great condition. The dash is also exceptional. There are no cracks on the dash top. all gauges work as they should and even the period radio works great.
Having just been treated to a service with new oil & filter. freshly MOT'd. this Datsun is ready to go and be enjoyed by its new owner. having never been showed in the UK it is also fresh to the scene and will surely be well received.
