Sale price: $0.00 make an offer
Technical specifications, photos and description:
(This is a non running. non operable vehicle). This is a rare "Barn Find" . except it has not been in a barn but stored in a nice dry facility since 1993. During the past 20 years it has not seen rain. snow. sleet. the sun or any other similar elements! This is an unmolested original car and is probably the nicest restorable Datsun z that I have seen in this area! It is a 3 owner car. The vehicle is 99% complete. I can only find that the radio. the inspection covers for the taillights. spare tire. nbsp; shift boot. and a Z emblem are missing! The body is exceptional. and I see no sign of accident except for the rocker panel under the driver door (see photo). Paint is very good. and could probably be buffed out to look nice. sorry. but I cannot explain the primer shown. Very little rust. except where shown in photos. and these are only small surface rust spots. I've tried to show all of this in the photos. INTERIOR: Door panels appear as new. Dash has typical splits for this age era. Seats are great. except the cushions/bottoms need recovering. Steering wheel. console and other dash components appear to be in nice shape. Rubber around windshield. back glass and doors appear to be in exceptional condition and do not need replacing. This car is equipped with air conditioning.
ENGINE AND DRIVE COMPONENTS: Brakes are not locked up and car rolls freely. E-brake operates as it should. Clutch pedal feels good and 4 speed transmission shifts as you would expect. A battery was connected and THE ENGINE TURNS OVER FREELY WITH THE IGNITION SWITCH. No. it did not start. as should be expected of a vehicle parked for 20 years! However. the owner indicated it was running well when he replaced the vehicle with another and parked this z in 1993. The tires are the same ones as when the car was parked 20 years ago. they have plenty of tread but are dry rotted and are not suitable for the road.
A 77 front bumper was on the car. but removed for towing. You may have your choice of the 77 bumper or the original 76 bumper.
This is a great car for anyone who wants to make it into a very nice and driveable z car. with the stock motor or a V8. The car is in amazing shape but you be the judge. based upon the photos shown. This is a difficult car to find. not because of its age but its condition. Clear title is available for transfer.
Please email me should you have questions. If you are near Greensboro. NC I would be delighted to show you the vehicle.
A Paypal deposit of $200. 00 is required within 24 hours and the balance within 5 days in the form of cashiers check. nbsp;bank transfer. nbsp;or money order.
