Can see more info on dallas craigslist. Clean title,no wrecks. Everything works perfect, ttops don't leak. Main eye soar is the dents on hood, I tried to include a picture of everything wrong. Mechanicaly it is perfect. Inside is perfect. Outside needs some tender loving care. Price is very fair. Have original spare, spare tire saver buddy, re-inflator can (mint) and break stops still sealed. Every inspection slip,insurance tab,service reciept, and original reciept from nissan when bought. Original cover, both keys,and manual aswel . Even have the Datsun Keychain they gave you when purchasing back from 83. Garage kept. Full detail including paint restoration stage 4 package with full clay bar,wax,polish, and sealant. Engine still has the oil from Japan on surface. Clean carfax. Only thing not original is the battery and the break light plug behind the pedal. Can reach me at, 817-995-2473. My name is slade. I'm located in Fort Worth,Texas. Not willing to meet, you have to come to me. Great chance for someone to fix her up and make a quick buck. Hurts to see her go.

I know there are similar threads but none that deal with my specific trans and I would really like to be sure before starting. So I've gathered from reading other posts that the transmission should bolt right in but I'm unsure about all of the extra wire ports that seem to be on the 83' trans. Can they be left in connected? And is there anyway I can tell if this transmission is from a turbo or non turbo version (I hear the non turbo is better) any feedback would be great will post a pic if that will help expedite the process
Hey folks - I am so ignorant on this so I am looking for a little help. Currently I have s stock '77 280Z coupe with a 4-speed. It runs 4000RPM at 80mph. I am looking at buying a 5-speed transmission core and rebuilding it. I have been told that would improve my highway MPG by almost 30%. Would this be worth it? Do you think this would help at all? Are there other things I could do instead? Thanks for any and all help. Tommy
