Datsun (Nissan) had a lot to celebrate in 1980, following 10 years of success with their Z-car. They built 3000 special edition 280ZXs to commemorate a decade of Japan''s most successful sports car, and of those, a mere 500 were special two-tone cars like this one (which is #44). Recently freshened with a lot of new parts and some fresh paint, it''s the pinnacle of first-generation Z-car evolution with a pedigree to match. There was nothing subtle about the Z-car crashing the sports car party in 1970, and the 10th anniversary models are equally brash. Sporting a black-over-red paint scheme, it looks fast just sitting still and even four decades later, that first-generation Z shape is still an attention-grabber. The body was stripped to bare metal and refinished from there, and you can see the results in every single panel: it''s really, really nice. This is the 2-seater version of the Z-car, so it has ideal long nose/short deck proportions that are only enhanced by the two-tone paint scheme. Super straight sheetmetal makes this car look impressive from any angle, and the original emblems and anniversary decals have been accurately reproduced. Sporting accessories include the rear window slats and a chin spoiler, while the big rubber bumpers were the feds'' contribution to the Z''s evolution. Fortunately, they''re still in good shape and only showing a few minor signs of age. The red interior is full of new NOS components that keep it authentic Datsun. The leather seats are in excellent condition and look more modern than you''d expect for 1980. Matching door panels and an excellent dash pad are more evidence that someone spent the time and money to make this car right, and the carpets look almost new. The gauges are clear and well-marked with the trio of auxiliary instruments in the center being a Z-car tradition that continues to this day. It''s loaded with options, including an automatic transmission, A/C, cruise control, power windows and locks, and a period-correct AM/FM/cassette stereo system. And even though this is a 2-seater, there''s ample storage space behind the seats, which also includes tie-downs and bags for the removable glass T-tops, which were a popular feature throughout the late-70s and early 80s. The heart of the 280ZX is a fuel-injected 2.8-liter inline-six. Like BMW and Jaguar, Datsun realized that there was nothing else quite like a brawny six to deliver the classic sports car feel. While they made it bigger during its lifespan to add torque for American roads, it never lost its turbine-like smoothness or gutsy tenor wail. IT looks like there''s an awful lot going on under the hood, but the truth is that these powerplants are anvil-reliable and fairly easy to work on, and parts are reasonably accessible, even today. This one starts easily thanks to fuel injection and runs beautifully, offering a thoroughly modern driving experience. The all-independent suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes make it competent in almost any situation, and the automatic transmission is quick-witted enough to know when you''re hustling and when you''re just relaxing. The underside of the car is impressively preserved, not perfect, but a lot better than most 34-year-old cars. Handsome 14-inch 4-spoke alloys are in superb condition and sport recent Firestone performance radials. If you like the early Z, why not own one with a bit of a pedigree and a great restoration that makes it ready to enjoy immediately? Call now! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
