Post 1977 Datsun 280Z for sale - under 90K miles - Birmingham MI
Hi folks - selling my "midlife crisis car," a 1977 Datsun 280Z coupe 5-speed with 89,500 original miles and a clear title. I bought it 8 years ago from the Datsun Doctor folks in Waterford to recall those joy days when I was 21 and originally owned one of these cars (granted, this was 1987 and the car was 10 years old at the time).

Anyway, this gorgeous Z is gold with a beige interior. The car is in great original shape. NO RUST that I've ever seen on the car top or bottom. It was a Texas vehicle most of its life, then brought to Michigan where it has never seen snow/salt. I've kept it as original as it was when I bought it. The new tires have well under 200 miles on them, and the motor purrs beautifully. It drives straight and true, and the body workout you get from that Z manual steering (and the clutch) is always healthy.

What's wrong with it? Typical Z stuff. (1) The seat fabric has some rips. (2) The clock and radio don't work. (3) The dash has a cover. (4) The driver's side mirror is missing. (5) The passenger doors use different keys. (6) There are a few dings/rock scratches on the body.

I brought the car out of storage for the 2015 Dream Cruise where I'm looking to sell. I'm installing a new battery (just to be safe) and will be on the road in Birmingham during the cruise. If you'd like to see the car locally, please leave a message for Sandy at 248-792-7675 or email cosmosplat@yahoo.com and we'll make arrangements. I'll be handing out cards at the Dream Cruise with information as well.

$7500 firm, which is a very fair price for this head-turning Z. I'll miss seeing people's eyes light up as they yell "Z!" as I drive by during the Dream Cruise. Thanks!

That's a nice looking Z, Sandy. Wish I had the cash!

Thanks kindly. I'd love to keep it, but hope it finds a good home.

I enjoyed seeing a few of you folks at the Dream Cruise today. I ran the whole gamut, both sides, from 8 Mile to north of Big Beaver. (And yes, my clutch foot is killing me.)

Post 1977 Datsun 280Z SOLD - under 90K miles - Birmingham MI
Sold for $7500. Thanks, everyone, for the interest. Here's hoping that the folks at Nissan have a throwback Datsun 390Z on the drawing board.

Did you give the buyer a Great Lakes Z Club card? :)

I would have... except the buyer is from Florida. I'm afraid this Z will be heading south.
