Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
The new class of Japanese classic cars is starting to get red hot, and the 1993 Nissan 300ZX convertible has all the best features. It's a loaded triple-black drop-top, and you control the wonderful fuel-injected motor with a five-speed. So there's nothing in the way of you enjoying this affordable modern classic.
This generation Z-car looks like a shark on land with the flush-mounted headlights and sleek sheetmetal. But there's more there than just aggression. The precision-built body still retains great lines. It's what you get with a well-respected two-owner example that has only averaged about 2,700 miles annually. It's finished in a desirable black that retains a glossy finish in the sunshine. This is believed to be the original application, and it has that kind of premium luster that reminds you these were expensive machines. And while cars from this generation used form-hugging designs instead of brightwork trim, the factory 16-inch alloys have a pristine look to really radiate from this full blackout body.
The black convertible top fits snugly in lace, and when you take it down, the rich and dark look continues inside. The paint, roof, and interior make up the triple-black package that always makes for a valued classic. This one really has a race car inspired feeling, right down to the well-integrated roll hoop that adds rigidity. You and your passenger get nicely bolstered bucket seats that were more recently recovered, and now include a custom 300ZX contrast stitching. Yours even power adjusts to the ideal driving position. The dash is low, giving excellent sight lines. All the controls are at your fingertips, with many as close as the edge of the instrument panel. As Nissan's flagship, this Z came loaded with features like power windows, power locks, power mirrors, driver's airbags, and a premium AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD. And because you know you want to enjoy this drop-top long into the summer, the R134a air conditioning is blowing nice and cold.
On a car so well preserved this far, it's great to see a very stock appearing powerhouse. In fact, it's believed to be original to the car. The 3.0-liter DOHC V6 is a truly marvelous motor. With 222 horsepower on tap, this fuel-injected, multi-valve powerplant loves to rev, and it makes a wonderful guttural growl at full throttle. And you are in complete control of this full power and its dual exhaust symphony thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. These engines proved to be quite hardy, and while they respond well to modifications, this one remains stock and tidy - like a maturely maintained sports car should. In fact, part of the appeal of a sports car like this is it fires up as reliability and has the same everyday usability as any other Nissan. Still, the moment you feel like hitting the open road, the fully independent sports suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and grippy BF Goodrich gForce Comp 2 tires remind you instantly how the Z-car is a true all-around stunner.
It's amazing this well-presented and loaded drop-top sports car is so affordable. That's why you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
