DESCRIPTION

The Z-car is rocketing up in the classic car ranks, and it's not hard to see why. It combines vintage good looks with Japanese sensibility. So a car like this 1975 Datsun 280Z 2+2 is not only attractive for its value price, but also its numbers-matching motor, four-speed manual transmission, and complete packaging that reminds us why we love a good Datsun. This one in particular is a one-owner vehicle so you know it has been pampered its whole life.

Datsun took their time developing this car. They saw all the elements we love in a sports machine and made it their own. The long hood, Coke-bottle curves, flared fenders, and fastback rear deliver a timeless appeal. The 2+2 is the more practical version of the 280Z, but they really knew how to add the extra size within the sleek style. There have been additions along the way, like a respray and new wheels, but you can tell this one really has an overall style of a well-preserved machine. So you can chose to drive it as a survivor-style today, and its completeness means its ready when you are if you ever want to do a proper restoration.

Another reason why the first-generation Z cars were so good was because Datsun understood how to build a sports car around the driver. You get high-back bucket seats, grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel, a trio of auxiliary dials are right at eye-level, and the speedo and tach are set into twin round pods. These 2+2s were a handy addition where the rear seats could hold others in a pinch, and they were especially nice to fold down a get extra cargo space for long trips.

Under the hood is the numbers-matching 2.8-liter motor. Datsun/Nissan's stout reputation and the inherent smoothness of an inline six motor combine for a great powerplant. And factory fuel injection only heightens the desirability. You have complete control over this with a four-speed manual transmission. The fully independent suspension makes sure this Z-car lives up to its sporty good looks. Add in power brakes w/discs up front, and you have an all-around nice driving classic.

This is the first-generation Z that has added practicality and stick-shift appeal. So you know it's a terrific deal at this price. Call now! A one-owner vehicle of this vintage is harder and harder to find every day.
