10th Anniversary 208zx

    Recommended Posts

    Wonder if anyone can help me find the cassette that came with the 1980 10 Anniversary 280zx, I have the cassette holder but the actual cassette went missing. I also could use the original owners manual for this car(1980 10th Anniversary 280zx) as the one I have someone removed the 10th Anniversary emblem from the front cover. I have all the documents i.e window sticker, warranty books ,repair manual, original tires etc and I would really like to find the items noted above. Thanks in advance for your help.

    What is the owner manual worth to you? I have a manual from my rusty 280zx 10th anniversary I may part with.

    Well it was fine until I pulled the first page out. Other than that the corner is missing on cover and first page.

    I think Jamal @borini63 may have had one. I know he was parting a wrecked 10th anniversary a few months ago.

    Do you plan on selling the car or is this for documentation purposes for a restore your keeping? If your keeping the car, I'll give it to you on permanent loan and if you go to sell it, I want it back. Is that fair?

    Jeff -

      I'm keeping the car, its all stock with only 20 thousand miles -I'm trying to find the odds and ends that make it complete - Have everything ,cover,original firestone wingfoot tires ,etc - its my baby.

    That's really kind of you and rest assured its staying with the car - But I would be happy to pay you for it -Yes, its the original tape that came with the car, I do have the plastic tape holder but over the years the tape disappeared.

    Once more many thanks for your kindness and help.

    PM me your address, I'll send it to you. If it's worthy for you to buy, send me what you think it's worth after inspection. Or you can just hold on to it for awhile until you can find a pristine one and just send it back. Your call.

    Jeff -

        contacted Borini63, he replied that all was gone even the Z shell,, -  

    By the way do you still have the cassette deck? if so does it work? The one in my Z has its moments , will have to have it looked at .

    Have a Great New Year

    Thanks will let you know when it arrives.

    I had the same problem with my radio, thought it was the fuse in the fuse box but it wasent- then found  out that the radio had its own fuse in the radio changed it and it worked. Does your cassette player work ? it is separate to the radio but when repairing it both have to come out as they are connected.

    I haven't investigated. Such a shame my car is so rusty. Car only has 90k on it. 

    I got it from the original owner in south FL, who has since passed away. Spoke with the daughter who went with her dad to pick it up.  They bought it as a present for wife/mother. It does run great. 

    You want to buy a whole parts car!

    Really don't need parts for mine other than little odds and ends i.e. manual(which you kindly sent) and the cassette tape -

    Everything works in the car(tape player has its moments), no rust anywhere also interior is like new.

    The car is garage keep, covered with less than 20th miles - I have a Datsun/Nissan mechanic who has over 20 years of experience with Nissan and he does service on it -other than normal wear and setting in the garage no problems, fluids , brakes are being changed now, Car will go into the garage get covered, battery on a tender  and tucked away for the winter. Oh I did have the muffler and pipes changed with stock parts. The car is totally stock with only the louvers added on the rear hatch.

    If ever you decide to parts the car let me know as I could possibly use the radio/cassette deck for parts.

    Manual arrived today. Thanks. Would like to repair the first page which I think I can do but I wanted to check with you first = How about letting me know what you would want for the manual, before I start repairing.

    Once more Thanks

    Repair away. Just hold on to it for awhile. If you find a better one get and send it back. No rush. If you don't whatever you think
