A Fat Dat: 1977 Nissan 280Z

This next car is a Datsun S30 generation Z-car of someone obscure origins. The seller lists it as a 77 Nissan Quest, but that is because Facebash doesn’t have all car listed for all years, so he/she may have picked something close enough. The part where it gets more cloudy is when the seller says it has “minimal rust, no cancerous rust” which is the automotive equivalent to carcinoma instead of melanoma…but its best to avoid both. Finally the seller mentions that you’ll need to live in a state where you can register without a title or apply for a new one…and that the car was listed for sale a year ago. I’m not sure what I’m looking at here, but I love the fender flares. Find this 1977 Datsun 280Z offered for $11,000 in Birmingham, AL via facetrash fenderbook. Tip from Mark.

Was rear ended by a teen texted, all damaged was pulled out and rear flares and tail light panel are from ZTrix. Nothing mechanical was damaged, drives straight. Everything’s been touched. New bushings, upgraded ignition, 15 gallon fuel cell, 10×15 on Toyo r888 235/50/15 in front, 12×15 Nitto 555R 325/50/15 in the rear. Interior is very clean with a corbeau seat and driver 4-point harness. Comes with a spare set of rear mounted/balanced wheels and tires and miscellaneous interior pieces.
