Lot #608 - Owned by one person and treated like a member of the family. The interior looks as though it was hardly ever sat in. The engine is clean and shiny like the day it rolled out of the factory. The luster of the paint would make you think it was just applied, giving you a mirror like finish. It's all original and free of defects or any damage or repairs. This car has never seen any foul weather, not even a drop of rain. It has always been stored in a climate controlled garage helping to maintain its new appearance. The 1978 Datsun 280Z was the last year of Datsun's first generation of the Datsun Z series. Through the years it gained notoriety as a race car, for its high level of performance. This car features a steel unibody frame with a front mounted engine and rear wheel drive. It is equipped with a six-cylinder L28 series engine and solid valve lifters, overhead cam and Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection system. This car produces 125hp and 144ft/lbs of torque. All this power is channeled to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transmission. This car goes from 0-60 in 9.3 seconds and has a top speed of 121 mph. All of this power is controlled by front and rear 10 inch disc brakes.
