This is a cool 1978 Custom 280Z in very nice condition all around!! This is an original West Coast low mileage Z that I purchased from an artist who loved and customized it. I continued the process with my own touches. It looks runs and drives great with a nice blend of his work and my desired look! The miles are said to be original and backed up by the title. Unmolested and well maintained drivetrain and suspension. Has nice details and could be awesome weekend cruiser. daily driver. or addition to any collection.

The body has no rust or collision damage that I can see. It was body worked to fill holes and smooth things but no major damage that I can detect. The artist custom hand painted the car and it has been dipped wrapped over that. the wrap can easily be removed if desired. There are some imperfections and blemishes but overall presents beautifully. Has some mild custom touches. I love the look!! Passenger door opens with a custom mechanism. easily removed but its unique and kinda cool.
I added the fender flares and airdam. Frame. floors. and chassis are super solid!! New bronze 15 inch rims with nice tires.   It's not a trailer queen. it's a driver! Get's tons of looks and compliments everywhere we roll.

The interior is custom as well.   panels. and dash have custom touches. carpet was replaced by custom rubberized matting. Seats are later model cloth Nissan. they are comfortable and in good shape. they have multiple adjustments and nice support. I have a set of new JDM style custom seats for it which I will include with buy it now. Gauges. lights. and electronics all work properly. except the clock (of course lol) Nice aftermarket stereo and speakers.

L28 motor starts idles and runs fantastic. sounds great through custom exhaust. 5 speed
Trans shifts smooth and strong through the gears. Suspension is tight and provides excellent ride. brakes stop straight and sure. Strong. powerful. and reliable. freshly serviced and tuned. ready to roll. definite daily driver capable.

Overall this is a really cool Classic Z in great condition all around. Fun history and options. I am a Z collector. This one makes an Awesome Weekend Cruiser. daily driver. or whatever you like. Great for any enthusiast. collector. or anyone looking for a cool and unique Vintage sports car at a great price.
