What's a “Series II”?

Nissans Face Lift 1982–1983:  This face lifted model has since come to be called the "Series II" 280zx with reviews confirming that the 1982 280zx was the                                                                                    most sporting Z-car since the original 240Z of 1970. although the birth of the 240 was in 1969.

The 1982-83 “Series II” by the factory had distinguishing characteristics with aerodynamics in mind.  Overall. the new body design gave better fuel economy                                                                                    and high-speed stability (one of the known issues from the first generation Z-car). This was accomplished through redesign of suspension. braking system. nbsp;                                                                              performance and other improvements.

The “Face Lift” continued to the core w/:                                                                                                                                                                                                                              * Spring rates and sway bars were revised addressed the handling nervousness of the early 280zx                                                                                                                                                                          *Semi-trailing arm independent in the rear                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          * A new power-assisted rack-and-pinion replaced the recirculating-ball steering system for the 1981 Turbo. available on models the following year.
