Current customer rating:(2.05) based on 364 votes
This 1976 Datsun 280Z Convertible has a Small Block Chevy 350 V8 in it. This car is very unique. fast and a blast to drive. I have never run into another one on these on road or at a car show. There obviously has been a lot of work done to the car over the years and it is time for me to move onto my next project. I will try to list all of the extras added on. - The convertible conversion was done professionally and looks like it was done at the factory. All of the pieces and edges are very smooth and look correctly. The added support is supplied by two steel roll bars that run from the floor of the interior up to the front shock towers. Also there is a 4-point roll bar. - The V8 conversion was also done professionally. the engine is a 1970's Small Block Chevy 350. It has an edelbrock manifold. Holley 4bbl carb and headers. The radiator has a custom built bracket and an electric fan that keeps the engine running cool. The car has never overheated on me. - The wheels are 16x8 XXR 530 gold with 245 50's on the rear and 225 50's on the front. The tires are nothing special and if I were going to keep the car I would change them. Although they have plenty of tire tread left. - The transmission is a turbo 350 automatic and the rear is the original 280Z rear. The 280Z rear has no problem handling the extra power. - The front brakes were upgraded to the Stage 1 big brake. This really helps with stopping of the car (the added weight and power). - The body has no rust (the car is kept inside) and most of the body parts are fiberglass. The hood is a cowl induction and is pinned down. Both front fenders are fiberglass along with most of the rear. The Trunk was fabricated out of the original hatchback. If you wanted the car to be perfect the trunk has a spot where the bondo would need to be worked on and replaced. I had a quote of $500. 00 for a local body shop. The doors are original and steel and both windows work. The inspection lids are louvered. - The car has a fuel cell in the trunk and the battery is also relocated in the trunk. The car does not come with a top. A top could be constructed. but I have always kept the car in the garage and it does nott come out when the weather is bad. If you live in Pennsylvania the Antique title and plates will remain with the car. so this means no inspection or emissions. If you live near the Philadelphia area you are more than welcome to come out and see and/or drive the car. It's kinda fast. fun to drive and gets lots of looks! I would be happy to assist in anyway if you are transporting the vehicle After the auction is over I will require $500. 00 deposited into my PayPal account within 48 hours. And the remaining balance would need to be paid withing 7 days with a certified check or cash. The car can be picked up at your (within reason) at your convenience. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I will answer them as quickly as I can. Thanks~
