I am selling my red 1976 Datsun 280Z Automatic. The odometer says 15,000 miles, but my guess is the mileage is actually 115,000. It has the original 2.8L inline 6 cylinder engine, and still has the original interior which is nearly perfect for being close to 50 years old (see pictures and videos for more info). Based on my work on the car, I believe it has been repainted one time. Here is a quick list of things currently on the car that did not come standard in 1976. Other than these things, the car hasn’t been upgraded or modified since I bought it in 2015, and is factory original minus the rear bumper.

– MSD Racing Ignition
– Weber C-Series Aluminum Intake
– Pacesetter Ceramic Performance Headers
– Custom Exhaust with Resonator

– Xenon 3125 Performance Air Dam
– Retrospec BRZ Spoiler
– Skillard Aluminum Grill + Bumper Delete Plates

– Kicker KS 8” Speakers + Tweeters
– Kicker CompRT 8” Dual Subwoofers
– Kicker CX 1200W Amp w / Base Boost
– Panasonic MEX-XB100 Stereo with CD and Bluetooth

– 15” x 8” Rota RB Rims
– 225/60/R15 BF Goodrich Radial TAs
– Square Setup on Factory Suspension—No Offset

Other things . . . within the last five years the gas tank has been removed, re-welded under water and re-coated (it had a very small leak), and at that time I also had the tank straps replaced. The transmission was also been completely rebuilt in 2016. The tires and wheels were put on right at the end of the Fall 2021, and have less than 500 miles on them total. The whole wheel and tire setup was just over 2 grand. Last year I also replaced the computer, and swapped out the standard battery with a gel battery that has a ton more crank. A few weeks ago I replaced the starter and the starter relay.

There are a few minor paint issues and some nicks here and there, but the body looks as good as it does in the photos. The rubber seals around the doors and hatchback should be replaced, and the automatic antenna motor is burned out, but this is minor stuff I haven’t had time to get to yet. This car could be a daily driver if it wasn’t registered as a classic, and if I didn’t live in Minnesota and have to store this car six months out of every year in an underground heated storage space.

Feel free to email with questions, and thanks for looking.
