Did I miss something?

Kind of odd.  Is he calling it a "Fairlady" because of the mirrors?  1978 can't be "matching numbers" because Nissan stopped putting the engine serial number on the tag.  1978 with a 4 speed is unusual.  He forgot to write about the rear discs.

Here's the real reason.   It's a consignment car.

It's a nice car and took a good bit of money to make look like that. The problem is you almost never get that money back out when yous sell. The low mileage and low rust would help it, if it wasn't heavily modified but probably doesn't do that much for a restomod car. I do like those seats though. Did some googling but couldn't even really locate a set or old ad for a set...

In the picture of the passenger open door, what are the holes in the door frame left bottom in this picture?  Just behind the door sill

Great seats for a sports car. No side bolstering whatsoever!

I  believe there's supposed to be a little rubber bumper there. Would have to look to confirm.

Yes, but the smell of rich Corinthian leather.  Yeah he's just fishing, hoping to catch a Saudi prince with deep pockets. But I would take it for a spin, lots of hard work in that car.

Definitely looks nice.  And shiny.

I learned at an early age that when the odometer rolls over the numbers get all wiggly and off the same line.  Makes you wonder.

And, don't the wheel wells need to be cut to get those big tires under there?  Some pictures from below would be nice.  Not a single shot from underneath.

Seems like a very nice but not extraordinary 78 280Z with many common parts.  KYB, Vogtland, JDM fender flares.  Made to look like a 240Z with the hood and bumpers.  $20,000 seems generous.

Last one, but it bugged me from the beginning - the doors are definitely lighter in color than the fenders.

Thanks for the replies.  That's what I thought.  Just another ebay dreamer.  Too bad.  If that car was worth 47,500 mine would be worth 60,000!  😉

Just curious but do people drive around with no filters on those triple Webers?

Not in sandy environments like Florida unless they want install an engine every 1.5 years. A good selling visual though. As far as 50K it depends on what buyer is willing to pay. It look ready to go but I'm not much for buying someone else's modifications. We will see.
