1988 Nissan 300ZX $36,995
Sleek style, great features, T-tops, and a five-speed all make this 1988 Nissan 300ZX 2+2 an attractive fuel-injected classic. But what makes this amazing is that it's a two-owner car where the ultra-low odometer is not a typo! So as you look through the full package, you're going to see a carefully preserved presentation that makes this one irresistible.
We're told this coupe spent 34 years with its original owner and has only had one more after that. And when you realize that this car has only averaged about 150 miles annually, you understand the level of reverence these two have had for the iconic Z-car. So the factory Champagne Pearl paint is like a premium champagne toast to those who have put in the effort to keep this one looking awesome. And we can understand why this earns its elevated status. These later cars from the Z31 generation had a smoother style and full color-matched bumpers. So it's the one that feels like it really got the balance of luxury and technology right. And the whole coupe looks impressive everywhere from the full-length pinstripe to the 15-inch buzzsaw alloys. Even the rear window louvers appear to be a rear and stock NISMO piece. So in the world of modified Japanese sports cars, you're looking at survivor-style distinction.
The two-tone pinstripe of the exterior nicely harmonizes with the colors of the two-tone cloth interior. So it's great to take the T-tops out and show it off to the world. You can even protect the glass in the factory storage bags. The full package is both highly original and loaded. That's why you have power windows, power locks, power mirrors, cruise control, the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. It's quite hard for us to find any flaws, and that's the difference you get from low mileage and great care. What's best about it all is just how much a proper Z-car is a driver's machine. The bucket has great contouring to grip your body, and the stick shift just seems to fall in the ideal place for your right hand. The leather-wrapped steering wheel has a nice design to give you a great view of the full gauges with a large speedo and handy tach.
What keeps the Z-cars in-demand is the powerhouse. Nissan/Datsun have built their backbone on providing six-cylinder motors that are both reliable and hardy. This 3.0-liter V6 with fuel injection and overhead cam is at the heart of that reputation. So it's great to see it looking stock under the hood. It embodies the best you expect from a Japanese sports car with an engine that fires up readily and it pulls strong out on the road. There's even a five-speed manual transmission to give you confident control over it all. Plus, you have power steering, four-wheel, power disc brakes, and a fully independent sports suspension to give you a terrific driver's classic when it's time to add to the low odometer.
The sale comes complete with the maintenance records, owner's manual, T-top sunshades, and T-tops storage bags. This is the kind of time capsule classic that feels as solid as an everyday driver. So if you're looking for a vintage sports car for all-around distinction, call today!
