MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this overall original and clean 1987 Nissan 300ZX. Just 1,997 300ZXs were made in this car's paint and interior color combination and this Z31 has had the same local owner for the past 27 years with full service documentation by Franklin Nissan/Datsun Specialities here in St. Louis, Missouri. Finished in Super White (code 326), the car's paint and trim are in overall excellent condition but there is a minor blemish in the roof on the driver's side as well as damage to the passenger side of the bumper. The body is straight and solid and the body-colored bumpers are in very good order, but the left front fog light is inoperable. The cargo area behind the seats is also very clean. This car rolls on Goodyear Assurance radials, size 215/60R15 at every corner. Each tire is mounted on a factory alloy wheel. The alloys are in good, original order. Under the hood is a 3.0L SOHC V-6 engine (code VG30E) with electronic fuel injection. The engine's dance partner is a five-speed manual transmission (code FS5W71C). Driver conveniences include air-conditioning, power steering, power brakes, cruise control and power windows. Inside, the car has a red cloth interior (code A). The bucket seats are in great shape while the matching carpet and headliner in are satisfactory order. The red instrument panel looks good while the inner door panels are in good, original order. The console-mounted shift lever is in great shape and there's a Kenwood AM/FM stereo with cassette deck. North America was the main market for the 300ZX, as for previous generations of the Z-car. It was introduced to the United States in October 1983, along with the remainder of Nissan's 1984 model year lineup. By now the "Datsun" nameplate had been completely retired in North America. Over 70,000 units were sold in North America in 1985 alone. There were two trim models available: GL, and GLL. The new V-6 single overhead cam engine was available as a naturally aspirated VG30E. The Z31 chassis was based on the 280ZX. Although the newer chassis had the same wheelbase and MacPherson strut/semi-trailing arm independent suspension, it handled and accelerated better than the 280ZX it replaced. Nineteen eighty-seven through 1989 versions are known as the Kouki models and have the more desirable tail lights and bumpers. The Z31 body was slightly restyled in 1986 with the addition of side skirts, flared fenders, and 16-inch wheels (turbo models only). Many black plastic trim pieces were also painted to match the body color, and the hood scoop was removed. The car was given a final makeover in 1987 that included more aerodynamic bumpers, fog lamps within the front air dam, and 9004 bulb-based headlamps that replaced the outdated sealed beam headlights. The 300ZX-titled reflector in the rear was updated to a narrow set of taillights running the entire width of the car and an LED third brake light on top of the rear hatch. This was the first car in history to have the central brake light with LED, in 1987 model year, made by Stanley Electric. Competition to this Nissan in 1987 included Audi's Quattro, Chevrolet's Corvette, Lotus' Esprit, Mazda's RX-7, Mitsubishi's Starion, Porsche's 911 and Toyota's Supra. If you remember these cars when they were new and always wanted one or if you're ready for another one, you should stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars to check out this Z-car for yourself.
