AFTER 26 YEARS OF OWNERSHIP. I HAVE DECIDED TO SELL MY DATSUN  280Z.  I PURCHASED THIS CAR FROM MY COUSINS BEST FRIEND IN SUNNY SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA IN 1991 AND DROVE IT HOME -2000 MILES. SHE WAS THE ORIGINAL OWNER. I AM THE SECOND OWNER.

GRAND LUXURY PACKAGE;

HISTORY W/ 1ST OWNER;;;; CAR SOLD BY FOOTHILL DATSUN TO MARY IN NOVEMBER 1980.  SHE DROVE IT THRU NOV 1990. WHEN SHE BOUGHT A NEW CAR. SHE LIKED THE 280Z SO MUCH. SHE KEPT IT.  A CONDO RESIDENT WITH AN "EXTRA" CAR IN CALIF CAN BE A CHALLENGE. WHEN THE LICENSE CAME DUE (NOV 91). SHE DECIDED TO SELL IT. I WAS IN TOWN VISITING MY COUSIN. AND I BOUGHT THE CAR.

NOTE 1; MARY WAS IN A JOB WITH CLOSE TO HOME TRAVEL. IN AND OUT OF THE CAR OFTEN. WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAR. IT HAD 82. 00 MILES ON IT. IN THAT TIME. THIS 100 POUND WOMAN HAD WORE OUT;;;; THE LEADING EDGES OF THE DRIVERS SEAT UPHOLSTERY. THE DRIVERS "z" FLOORMAT (HIGH HEELS) . AND THE DRIVERS SEAT BELT RETRACTOR (BROKE & I REPLACED IN  1992)

CALIFORNIA CAR; IT WAS THEREFORE SUBJECT TO LIFESTYLE. HEAT. AND SUNLIGHT.

LIFESTYLE; I BELEIVE THIS CAR WAS TAKEN THRU A BRUSH CAR WASH EVERY DAY OR EVERY OTHER DAY IN CALIF. SILVER PAINT IS  NOT KNOWN FOR ITS LONGEVITY. AND THE PAINT IS WORN OUT WITH VERY VISIBLE BRUSH AND SWIRL MARKS-SEE PHOTO OF LEFT 1/4 PANEL. I HAVE NEVER WAXED THIS CAR. IF YOU NOTICE; THE OUTSIDE MIRRORS AND THE 280ZX FENDER EMBLEMS. THE FINISH IS WORN OF TO THE WHITE PLASTIC BASE COLOR. VERY VISIBLE IN BRIGHT SUNLIGHT. OTHERWISE NOT SO MUCH. THE CAR HAS HAD SOME TOUCH UP PAINT WORK. SO I PRESUME IT HAS BEEN IN A MINOR SCRAPE OR TWO. THE LEFT FRONT AREA FENDER HAS A KINK IN IT-PROBABLY A PAINTLESS DENT REMOVAL PERSON COULD REPAIR IT

HEAT & SUNLIGHT; NOT GOOD FOR THE PAINT EITHER. BUT HARSH ON THE INTERIOR. THE PHOTOS OF THE DOOR PANELS CLEARLY SHOW NO ABUSE. BUT THE SUN DARKENED THE UPPER EDGES OF THE DOOR PANELS. THE ROOF GOT SO HOT. THE HEADLINER MATERIAL SEPERATES FROM IT AND MUST BE REGLUED YEARLY. THE RIGHT REAR CORNER OF THE TRUNK CARPET(WHERE NOT COVERED BY T-TOP BAGS) COOKED AND DISINTEGRATED. THE SILVER COLORED PORTIONS OF THE REAR VINYL COVERING HAS DISCOLORED. SOME SEPERATED AND DROPPED.

MAINTENANCE; I DONT HAVE ANY RECORDS FROM THE 1ST OWNER. THERE ARE OIL CHANGE STICKERS ON THE DOOR FROM 2 DIFF DATSUN DEALERS. SHE TOLD ME THAT ALL NECESSARY WORK ON THE CAR WAS DONE AT A DATSUN ONLY REPAIR GARAGE CLOSE BY. AND TO GO AND TALK WITH HIM. I TALKED WITH THE SHOP OWNER. HE KNEW THE CAR VERY WELL. HE SAID THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE CAR. THE OWNER TENDED TO IT WELL. THE ONLY NEG WAS THE OWNER DID NOT  INSTALL A DASH COVER TO PREVENT IT FROM CRACKING.  (AND STILL IS).

HISTORY W/ 2ND OWNER; BEFORE LEAVING CALIF I DID BUY A FULL SIZE SPARE TIRE-BUT DIDN'T BUY ALL NEW TIRES.   NEAR DESERT CENTER. CALIF A TIRE WORE OUT. I INSTALLED THE FULL SIZE SPARE AND DROVE ON TO KINGMAN. ARIZ. . THE ONLY SHOP WITH A MACHINE TO HANDLE ALLOY RIMS HAD A SET OF TIRES. 1 SIZE TOO BIG. AS I WAS RUSHING TO GET THRU/PAST THE ROCKIES BEFORE THE IMPENDING SNOW STORM HIT. nbsp;I BOUGHT THEM.

ARRIVING HOME IN MICHIGAN WITH APPROX 84. 00 MILES ON IT. CAR WAS STORED AND HAS BEEN STORED EVERY WINTER  SINCE. I USED THE CAR AS A SECOND CAR. nbsp;SUMMERS ONLY. nbsp;DURING THE FIRST FEW YEARS HERE. IN AUGUST 1993. THE CAR HAD 100. 00 MILES ON IT.

THE MAJOR THINGS REPLACED DURING THAT TIME; ;

1992-SEAT BELT RETRACTOR. IGNITION WIRES. WINDSHIELD. AND A VIPER ALARM SYSTEM (NEEDS RECONECTING).

1993; DISTRIBUTOR . CAP AND ROTOR. IDLER ARM.

THE OIL WAS CHANGED EVERY 3000 MILES. CAR ALWAYS RAN AND DROVE WELL. NEVER FAILED ME. BETWEEN 1993 AND 2015 THE CAR WAS BASICALLY STORED. HARDLY USED. DRIVEN ONLY 4000. MILES. FOR A TOTAL OF 104. xx.

IN LATE 2015. I DECIDED TO SELL THE CAR. AND IT WAS REMOVED FROM STORAGE. IT HAD NOT SEEN THE ROAD SINCE 2007 OR 08. AND IT NEEDED SOME MAINTENANCE BEFORE ROAD WORTHY. IN 2015. WITH 104. xx MILES ON IT. THE DATSUN RECEIVED;

NEW BATTERY

NEW CLUTCH MASTER AND SLAVE CYLINDERS

NEW RADIATOR. ORIGINAL STYLE. not AN ALUMINUM ONE

NEW WATER PUMP. RADIATOR HOSES. MOST HEATER HOSES. AND SOME VACUUM LINES.

REAR HATCH SUPPORT STRUTS. FRONT WIPER BLADES.

I HAVE KEPT MOST OF THE ORIGINAL PARTS I REMOVED. AND THE NEW OWNER CAN HAVE THEM IF HE SO DESIRES.

----THE CAR NEEDS A NEW MUFFLER. AND A NEW EXHAUST MANIFOLD GASKET.

CAR WAS  STORED THRU THE WINTERS OF 15 AND 16. I HAVE PUT A FEW HUNDRED MILES ON IT IN THE LAST 24 MONTHS. TIRES DONT FEEL LUMPY. AND ALL SYSTEMS APPEAR AS OK AND FUNCTIONING INCLUDING THE A/C. I HAVE NOT USED THE CRUISE OR PARKING BRAKE IN PROB 20 YEARS. BUT I AM SURE THERE OK 

SO THERE IT IS. A VERY GOOD USED CAR. FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION. THIS IS THE RIGHT KIND OF VEHICLE; WHEN I REMOVED THE RADIATOR AND THE ATTACHMENTS FOR THE CLUTCH CYLINDERS. ALL BOLTS CAME OUT LIKE IT WAS MADE A YEAR PRIOR-PRICELESS. FIT & FINISH ; THE PAINT IS WHAT IT  IS. THE FIT IS AWESOME. ALL PANELS ARE ALIGNED. GAPS ARE GREAT.   A GOOD YEAR. nbsp; SNAPPY ALLOY STYLE WHEELS SIMILAR TO CRAGAR SS. BRIGHT ALLOY ROCKER PANEL ONLY TRIM  (vs. THE BLACK BELT). COMPLIMENTARY COLOR AND INTERIOR. THE 5 SPEED WITH ITS BOLT ACTION SHIFTING IS A DREAM TO DRIVE. CAR IS PICTURED HERE AS IT CAME FROM STORAGE WITH A HAND WASH JOB. NO DETAILING. RUBBING OR WAXING.

NOT ABUSED. THE ORIGINAL COLLAPSED SPARE HAS NEVER BEEN USED. IT HAS ITS ORIGINAL KEYS. ONE BEING THE "VALET" KEY. ALONG WITH THE ORIGINAL KEY CODED MATCHING LOCKING GAS CAP. WINDOW STICKER. OWNERS MANUAL. WARRANTY PAPER. I HAVE THE ORIGINAL T-TOP BAG. GOOD CONDITION.

VEHICLE MUST BE PAID IN FULL TO MY BANKS SATISFACTION BEFORE CAR AND OR TITLE IS GIVEN. BUYER RESPONSIBLE FOR TRANSPORT / SHIPPING AFTER PURCHASE. I WILL COOPERATE & ASSIST WHERE I CAN WITH YOUR TRANSPORT SOURCE. TRADES; I NEED THE STORAGE. SO NOT REALLY. A STOCK 28-48 FORD COULD TEMPT ME.

PHOTOS; I TRIED TO PRESENT THE CAR AS IT IS-THE GOOD AND THE BAD. THE LAST PHOTO HAS TWO  1991 PICTURES. ONE OF ME GETTING THE KEYS FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNER. AND THE LAST ONE SHOWS THE CAR GETTING NEW TIRES ON ANDY DEVINE ROAD IN KINGMAN. ARIZONA

CAR SOLD AS IS WHERE IS. NO WARRANTY. NO RETURNS.

I HATE TO SEE IT GO. BUT ITS TIME. THE ORIGINAL MSRP ON THIS CAR WAS $13. 98. xx . nbsp;THANKS FOR LOOKING & GOOD LUCK
