Gorgeous 1978 Datsun 280Z with Chevy 350 small block, 700R/4 Automatic for sale
In response to some questions I've received:
The subframe has been reinforced to withstand the torque of the larger V8 engine.
The front brakes have been modified with 4 pot calipers and vented rotors.
The rear end is a limited slip differential and the ratio is more likely to be 3:90 than 3:73
The seals and such are such that I have never experienced a lot of exhaust in the cabin.
The interior is such that one can have a normal conversation in the car. From a noise standpoint. it is quite comfortable.
The tachometer is a Mallory and has adjustable shift light and rev limiter (it fits in the stock location as depicted)
The suspension is fitted with heavier duty springs. sway bar. nbsp;and aftermarket struts.
This is a stunning example that gets lots of attention wherever it goes. So many people can relate to this iconic vehicle and I am constantly told by auto enthusiasts that this is the nicest one they have ever seen.
I purchased it in March of 2012 from a reputable dealer in Tampa FL (Lash Auto Sales). I have invested in many enhancements since purchasing with the intent to keep the vehicle for many years. However. I am now faced with a re-location and will not have anywhere to store the car indoors. The car runs and drives great. It's a blast and a kick in the pants. It sounds awesome and it's very revvy.
**I Paid $13. 00 for this car on a competitive ebay auction one year ago and have invested $5. 00. I have only driven the vehicle about 1. 00 miles and must sacrifice this investment as I am moving and do not have garage space for the vehicle. MY LOSS IS YOUR GAIN**

When I purchased this vehicle. it was not equipped with air conditioning. I worked with Weber Motorsports to have a Vintage Air heating & air conditioning unit installed. It is fully modern and uses R134a refrigerant. In order to make it work. it was necessary to upgrade EVERYTHING in front of the block. I went with the black anodized Front Runner serpentine belt system which keeps everything nice and compact and adds the high flow water pump & high output alternator. This was a $5. 00 upgrade but well worth it for a black on black car with two small windows.
This vehicle is being sold as is where is. It's an older vehicle and has some minor imperfections.
I love this car and hate to see it go - please be a caring Z car enthusiast!
