Time capsule 78 280Z

Recommended Posts

Okay fellas as much as this pains me to do mama wants a new house and the VA mortgage cap in my county is $453k and I'm required to put down 25% of any diff above that price....so the 1 owner Time Capsule 78 Z is on the block.

 

I haven't had a chance to do much to the 280 since acquiring it a few months back and the only thing that's gone wrong with the car since having it is I blew a heater line inside the cab on the passenger side, many of you may have been following my thread.

 

The original owner had stated to me that the car had never been repainted but after removing the rear bumpers and the dealer installed side moldings I found that the rear driver side fender had been resprayed and it looked to have had a minor repair half way down the rear quarter panel.

 

The car has "very minor rust" and I will be posting more in depth pics later of those areas, but it's all very superficial. The frame rails, floor boards are perfect!

 

History of the car

 

The car was originally purchased here in WA from Yonkers Datsun now "Yonkers Nissan" and has been in WA it's entire life. I have the original MSRP, Factory EPA sticker, sunroof doc's/Manuel, Original sales slip with cash receipt from PO and even the original Yonkers Datsun reg/ins visor slip with all owners manuals. It comes with a binder full of every service receipt in chronological order, yes it's that crazy! The PO actually kept fuel logs and yes I have those too.

 

The car runs and handles perfectly.....no issue's what's so ever but I still haven't replaced the heater line that blew and have just bypassed the heater all together for now but the car hasn't been driven since.

 

"Price" only asking what I paid w/tax and hoping it goes to someone here and that I don't have to list on BAT.

 

$16,750.00

 

Located in Yakima Wa and have Tilte in hand!

 

Any questions feel free to call/ text

I know I'm new to this forum however I can provide many references, I've sold Porsche's on Pelican Forum and hundreds of high end custom knives that actually cost more then many have paid for a Z default_laugh.png on various forums to people all over the world not to mention watches.

 

Thanks

280 looks better to me seeing them side by side. I had an '82 SC, took half a day to put 6 spark plugs in and 13 quarts Kendall air cooled oil. WTF was I thinking? Datsun Zs hands down.

911  looks good though! LOL

I'd put the bumpers and mag wheels back on and put it on BAT.  Looks like a nice survivor, with serious resto potential.  The first series of pictures look a lot better than where it ended up.  Edit - also just noticed that it's not clear which set of wheels it comes with, mags or black steelies.  You have both showing with it bumperless.

Thought about doing that but decided to try and sell here first. Still have all original parts that were removed if anyone's interested.

I'll be the dissenting vote - sell it here.  BaT is a pain in the neck.

 

GLWS, it looks very nice.  I'm slowly prepping to get back into a Z, this one is too original for me, but I love them.  My first Z was a '76 280, what a great car.
