I live in El Cajon, Calif. My '77 280 Z had been sitting for over 32 years. Right now it has a little over 47,000 original miles, original dash and everything under the hood is still factory. Someone went to put in a security system and took out major parts of the wiring. She was running off of 3 cylinders when we bought her. She is for sale for $3,000.00 obo.

Just had har smogged, clean title and runs great. T-S(top speed) is at 135- so far. LOL Need to sell her a.s.a.p.

you will find that most people prefer the much faster and prettier 240z :)

Here's what I think about that comment :finger:

Anyway I'm a proud owner of my 1977 280Z :)

I have a 77 in the middle of an engine rebuild.

My first Z was a 77 back in 1983, loved that car.

Bought this car as a project & haven't driven it yet.

have a 77 here as well...just bought it this past September to replace my 72 that has been taken by the rust demon....as far as "faster and prettier"....this particular 77 is just as fast and pretty especially with the exhaust, suspension mods and 72 bumpers on it...

Ahh come on now man, now your no better than Fun_in_my_z 77 280's have 170 hp so suck on that

First off, I love ALL 1st generation Z's. (240Z 260Z 280Z) All of them had the same beautiful body style that was far ahead of there time, (to this day, they still can't top the 1st.gen style and never will as far as I'm concearned) Bullet proof & powerful L6 motors and drivetrain ect. but each model had there own thing of beauty which made them each a little different to fit each of us Z enthusiasts personal needs (Just my opinion) and I truely love my beautiful 280Z. It's my pride and joy and I'll never part with it. Way back when I was shopping for one, I didn't give a crap which model 1st gen. Z to get as I loved them all. All I cared about was finding one with no rust, low mileage and I met the previous owner of my Z on another Z site that I used to be at before I found this site and he told me he was selling his 280Z and when he sent me photos of it, It was love at first sight :) It was everything I was looking for and fit my needs like a glove so thats how I ended up with a beautiful 1977 280Z.

Anyway sorry for the long reply but in my opinion anyone who's closed minded about a certain model Z isn't a true Classic Z Car Enthusiast and don't know what they are missing.

Ok, I'm finished voicing my thoughts LOL

I will jump in and add my name, I am the (not so) proud owner (almost owner, I am getting the title tomorrow after almost 3 months!) of a soon to be sweet '77 280Z. It is the "early style" where the rear floor sweeps up towards the hatch.

I have the interior ripped down to a degree right now, just re-foamed and covered the seats. I am putting down insulation on the rust free floors and new carpet. I bought a leather shift boot and ebrake cover on Ebay from some guy in England for $39 made in any color you want (I went with black of course), new leather shift knob and a new wheel from MSA. I am also putting in a new stereo and am considering some type of upgrade for dash lights, either LED bulbs or the guage faces from Speed Hut.

Thens its onto the exterior and mechanical issues :)

Someday, time & $ allowing, it will be my baby, right now its more of a red headed step child :)

Metal floorboards, hmm... Would that fit into a 77? I'm kind of tired of this fiberboard as well.

You already have metal floorboards. They all do. It's just that the 77-78 have the raised fibreboard deck and the 75-76 have a fibreboard deck that sits flat on the floorboards and a full sized spare. I really didn't understand his comment since is car also has, or is supposed to have, a fibreboard deck also. It just isn't raised like the 77-78.
