Rare Datsun badged car

We are pleased to offer this very rare Datsun 280 ZX Automatic Coupe, before they became Nissan. The example we have here was believed to have been originally finished in red and is now presented in a pleasing shade of grey with contrasting black velour trim. It has the benefit of a period pop up sunroof and a set of what are believed to be Yokohama chrome 8-spoke alloy wheels, which really suit the car and gives a nod back to the 1970s. According to “How Many Left“ there are only 30 examples in existence, only 11 of which are currently taxed, so it is unlikely you will see another one driving around any time soon.

The 280ZX was a complete redesign, retaining only the L28 inline-six engine and other driveline components from the 280Z. Both two-seat and four-seat (2+2) designs were offered. Compared to the more overtly sporting earlier models, the 280ZX was a much softer, heavier car, with less focus on driving and more on driver comfort and refinement. Softer suspension, better sound insulation, more comfortable seats, and ample equipment including high-end audio systems defined the new ZX. In the spirit of the times, emissions controls and aerodynamics were markedly improved over the first-generation Z-cars, while weight was down somewhat as long as the buyer did not pick much from the very long options.

This car would make a very rewarding project for someone and could turn out to be one of the rarest cars around with a bit of effort, as well as being a beautiful piece of motoring history. Come and have a look and make your own mind up. These cars are rising in value, as are all Japanese cars at the moment, so now is the time to buy one before it’s too late.
