Car description

1979 280zx, Slick Top, 5 speed, low miles

Offering my 280zx for sale. This is a very solid, great driving low mileage car with a few basic modifications. This is a 2+2 model, and is in very nice condition for a 38 year old car. Body is solid and straight, interior is really nice, and the car drives great. Odometer shows 32k miles on it. I have no reason to believe the mileage is not correct by the condition of the car and the way it drives. However, this car is pre-17 digit VIN, so I cannot run a Carfax to verify it.

Most of this car has original paint on it. The hood has been repainted at some point, but the rest of the car looks original. I have not found any major rust on this car. There are some very small bubbles around the windshield. The interior is also mostly original and in really nice shape. The only two things to note are two dash cracks and the headliner cloth has been replaced with a sprayed on surface that actually works really well with the car.

This is a 5 speed car, so it’s fun to drive. Being a “Slick top” makes it nice and rigid and no awful T-top or sunroof leaks to deal with. This car also has 4 wheel disk brakes, power steering and air conditioning. The A/C is complete and the compressor clicks on but it needs an R12 charge.

As you can see from the pictures, this car sits beautifully. It has been lowered on Tokico springs. It also has adjustable control arms up front and bump steer spacers installed. It has a header installed, as well as a very pretty aftermarket aluminum radiator and an aftermarket fuel rail. It’s sitting on a nice set of XXR wheels with BFG 225/55/16 tires. Tires have about half tread left. It has recently been treated to a full service (Plugs, wires, cap rotor, oil and filter). Also, the injector connectors and hoses have been replaced.

This car is 100% daily driveable. Fly in and drive it home. Clear TN title in my name. Buyer responsible for shipping if required. Closest airports are Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga, all about an hour and a half away. Any questions, please ask. Selling to make room for a new toy.

A couple of people have asked the same questions, so I thought I’d add to the description a little to clarify. From what I understand, I am the 3rd owner of the car. The first was a Doctor in Knoxville who owned it until around 2011 or so. I was told that something caused the car to be parked for many years and eventually sold. The car was put back on the road by the second owner, whom is also the one who performed the modifications to the car. I have owned it for about 6 months, and it’s been a great car. As you can see from the pictures though, I’m more of a Porsche guy. I’d like to keep it, but to make room for another Porsche something has to go. I’ve also added a picture of the instrument cluster to show how straight and even the odometer is. If you have any questions, please ask. Thanks.
