LMC is proud to offer for sale this 1982 Datsun 280ZX

Datsun 280ZX, the Nissan S130, is a sports coupé produced by Nissan in Japan from 1978 to 1983 as the second generation Z-car. It was sold as the Datsun 280ZX, Nissan Fairlady Z and Nissan Fairlady 280Z, depending on the world marketplace. The 280ZX was the first time the "by Nissan" subscript was badged alongside the Datsun logo as Nissan began to phase in their new global brand under the Nissan name. Interesting how the American auto magazine writers at the time described the Datsun 280ZX to the North American marketplace" the overall design of this Vette-style T-Bar roof fastback became known as the "Japanese Corvette"" and the luxurious interior of this sporting car had them explaining the ZX as "the Ford LTD of sports cars."

Paul Newman, the Hollywood Award Winning Actor and Professional Driver/Team Owner raced a 280ZX with the Bob Sharp Racing team. He also helped to promote the ZX and starred in a series of commercials. Significant results being the 1979 SCCA C Production Category by Bob Sharp Racing, 1979/1980 IMSA GTU Championship and the 1982/1983 IMSA GTO Championship.

With everyone looking for the next collectible could this be it. With Toyota GTs hitting the million dollar mark and later model Porsches rising in price this iconic Japanese car has gone unnoticed until now. Great quality cars rise the fastest in price, are the most in demand and this is a great one.

Over the past several years, "Hagerty's Cars That Matter" has observed unrestored cars sell for prices that would have astonished in the recent past. Preservation Classes are being added to concours nationwide to showcase well preserved and mostly unrestored, un-refinished, and unaltered cars. The old car hobby is headed in the direction of the fine art, decorative arts, and antique furniture markets, where a premium is placed on originality.

An outstanding original survivor that has never even seen rain which is quite obvious when you see the original chalk marks on the engine along with the original ink stampings on several parts and even the original ink stamps still on its (yes, original) Bridgestone tires. This original paint (Platinum Metallic) with a like new interior (gray/blue cloth) ZX is the highly desirable 2 seater sports model with the T-Roof, 5 speed transmission and factory air conditioning. Also outfitted with power steering, voice warning system, driver and passenger mirrors, coco mats, AM/FM radio and alloy wheels.

Provenance is easy - it's only ever had one owner. Great documentation included are the original bill of sale, service records, owners manual, warranty book, the warranty I.D. card and the original license plates with the 1982 sticker showing right up to the 1999 sticker when it was stored.
