Car description

1979 Datsun 280ZX Custom All Steel Convertible freshened V8 Chevy V8 400HP with Freshened GM Automatic 700R4 transmission running through a custom drive shaft into a GM 10 Bolt rear end..THIS IS A CUSTOM ONE OFF BUILD. YOU WILL HAVE THE ONLY ONE LIKE THIS. Most conversions use fiberglass but this is ALL STEEL !!!!! Has original window sticker and separate options list and all original paperwork. Odometer which is still clicking mileasge shows 58k ORIGINAL to the car although there is very little since the conversion..This is rust free from the normal rust found in these cars.. completely solid running, driving and stopping car..not a bucket of bolts or total project car ... even has A/C. The ac needs a few hoses made and a few other small items to be connected to work. All guages connected and work ..All lights are functional as they should be....
It is an ALL STEEL body conversion which took hundreds of hours to complete.. look at the custom fab details like the windshield, the top clamps and the trunk and fenders... All steel no fiberglass. Thats what gives this convertible its value...
Features an easily removeable top that converts into a targa or completely comes off disassembles with 4 bolts and stores in the trunk. It is water tight with no leaks and can be taken off and put on by one person easily custom clamps to front windshield and two bolts to the rear...
Has a freshened 350CI built Engine with the serpentine belt system with huge aluminum radiator and electric fans as seen in the pics comes with Cam Card and specs used for the build and a freshened GM 700 R4 four speed as well as a HD drive shaft and 10 Bolt GM Rear end and axle and brakes with upgraded heavy duty front and rear suspension .Entire chassis and frame and suspension was custom fabricated and designed to accomodate the V8 and the power it has...as well as the large DISC brakes and calipers in the front ..Some parts are from the JCI conversion kit which is one of the best out there and most were custom engineered and manufactured by the builder who was also c fabricator and mechanical engineer.
Car suspension is very overbuilt and designed although it still looks like it came from the factory..
This was a Professional Build with everything done right!! Not a hack job backyard project. It was purchased from the original owner who had the conversion done and I was going to completely restore it but started a new business and don't have the time. Comes with original window sticker manuals etc...
