1977 "black pearl" on ebay


Recommended Posts


has anyone seen the supposed 22k mile Black pearl car on ebay


the only problem is the seller claims that it is original paint -- but it is a 1977 -- so that is not possible (is it)

also I have never seen a black pearl with a white interior

overall car looks good but seems fishy (probably a better car than the supposed nissan resto)

Bought this car about a month ago on ebay. :)

It doesn't say in the ad that it is a black pearl car or not. Just implies that that the black paint is rare. I love how they say it has 20+ "original" miles, then put their disclaimer that they can't verify it! Starting to sound familiar?

I doubt this is a Black Pearl Edition car, and if so, $6700 sounds like a lot for a 280! I'd look under the carpet, around the interior, and in the engine bay for signs of another color before I bought this car.

Just my $.02....

I actually have paid exactly $6700 for a 280z in the past (but wouldn't for this one)

the red stripes on a black pearl were optional -- so it is possible to have an original black pearl with out them

I asked the seller why a 22k mile car would have been repainted -- he claimed it was original paint and wanted to know why I thought it was a repaint (I explained that as far I was aware the first time datsun offered z car in black was the 1978 black pearl edition)

he refused to send me a photo of the engine bay
