I am selling this car for a friend.   The car is sitting in his backyard.   Several years ago. I think 2-3 but possibly longer. he took this to the auto body shop and had some engine work done on it.   At that time he was told that. "THE FRAME WAS RUSTED AND THAT THE CAR WAS UNSAFE TO DRIVE. "  Ever since it has sat in his backyard.   Therefore. this car is being sold AS-IS. and anyone that wants it will have to bring a truck or trailer and tow or remove it from the yard.   Under no circumstance will this car be able to be or be allowed to be driven off the property.   9/7/2013:  I've called the autobody shop and they didn't maintain any records as to where the damage or the rusting out to the frame was. so I can't pinpoint that information for prospective buyers.

9/7/2013:  The battery on this car was dead and wouldn't hold a charge.   I can't tell you whether the engine would start right up without a new battery. and I can't say whether there is gas in the tank--which would be over 3 years old.   These are items you will have to resolve upon transporting the car to your location.

That said. this was the last year they made the Nissan 280ZX.   After 1983. Nissan made the nasty 300ZX. which looked like a cross between a yard Jart and a Mazda.   The 280ZX had style and class. and this is what you will be trying to restore back into this car. provided the frame can be replaced and/or repaired.   Like is said. this is a strip it down and rebuild it to its former glory kind of project.   9/7/2013:  The passenger side front fender is rusted. as pictured. but this car comes with a replacement fender from the owner's last attempt to revitalize the car (see photo).   These are not easy to come by on this 30-year old car. and not cheap either.

Guaranteed to have a clear title. or if necessary a rebuild or salvage title.   The person I am selling this for is a local official. so you will leave with the car and title--or not at all.   IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO GO DOWN TO THE COURTHOUSE AND EXCHANGE TITLE. YOU WILL NOT LEAVE WITH THE CAR.   No taking care of it later.

Please contact me with any questions.   I live about 5 minutes from the car.   Please review the pictures.   They are fairly representative. although they were taken a season ago.   Contact for updated pictures and information. and if you are in the area. then by al means please feel free to make an appointment with me to see the car in person--I highly recommend it.

I will update the auction with as much information as I can. as it becomes available to me.
