1976 280Z Manual S30 LHD California US import running p For Sale
1976 White Datsun 280Z Manual S30 LHD California USA import running project car. MATCHING NUMBER VEHICLE. SOLD FOR SPARES OR REPAIR. DOES RUN BUT DOESN'T DRIVE.
This vehicle has recently been imported from California and has a NOVA reference so can be registered once it has an MOT.
Left hand drive, matching number car.
This is a 'Dry state' car but unfortunately the elements have still got to this Datsun and it has rust on the floors, rear 1/4 panel, roof and behind the rear seats please see images below to see other areas of corrosion (to be on the safe side expect to find more rust as you strip the vehicle down for paint). So please understand that this does need repairs and is a job for a skilled welder. The battery area and firewall is in surprisingly good condition as they normally rot there. The chassis rails on the underside are also in ok condition.
Apart from the front wing and rear 1/4 panel this vehicle is largely in its original paint so it is easy to see what you are dealing with unlike some that are full of layers of paint and filler.
We have had it running for but not for more that 1 min at a time before it cuts out. As it has been stood for a very long time I would presume it is stale fuel.
We have not been able to drive it as the clutch does not work. Possibly ceased or fluid problem.
Passenger door card is missing a couple of bits of trim
BBS Mahle alloy wheels
Dent on the right hand door
Well worth restoring or would make a good donor car for another project.
Datsun's like this that have not been messed with are becoming hard to find and quickly gaining in value.
Lots of parts are still available for Datsuns making restorations much easier than other makes. Would look great with a set of 240Z bumpers!
Please do not mistake this for the less attractive 280ZX. This is the S30 280Z.
Original 2.8 straight 6 engine.
We have lots of photos and a video of it running please contact us if you would like them sent over 01797 222256
We are happy to assist loading it onto a trailer.
