Up for auction here is my beautiful 1976 Datsun 280Z ‘Fair lady’I'm selling this as a 'very easy' lockdown project. It starts runs drives etc. There is nothing to stop you from registering it right away, but it just requires some minor electrical work, mainly the indicators and brake lights altering, to make it suitable for UK roads. (They all work but flash as per usa spec)So the details of the car. It was restored in Texas in 2017, and has been styled to look like an earlier 240Z; smaller bumpers, dropped suspension etc. The vehicle was reputedly dry stored for 20 years before being hand picked for restoration. It was totally stripped back and repainted in Candy Red, all door shuts, under bonnet and interior areas were painted. It was done to a very high standard. All chrome, window and door rubbers and trims were replaced at this time. The larger bumpers were replaced with smaller 240Z units. Genuine steel, not GRP. I’ve had quite a few Datsun Z’s and this is by far the cleanest I have seen in the UK. It is 99.9% rust free. The engine was rebuilt during the recommissioning. It is a 2.8 litre straight six, rebored with 0.30 overbore and Ross Racing pistons.The head was reworked, polished and ported and runs a fast road camshaft from Comp Cams. Fuelling is done via an impressive array of triple Weber 40 side draft carburettors mounted on a Cannon inlet manifold, all fed by a rear mounted electric facet type fuel pump. There is a large alloy radiator with electric fan, silicone hoses though out, and a high torque starter motor. Pretty much every shiny bit from the Zed (www.thezstore.com) has been added under the bonnet, oil filler cap, alloy pulleys, water pump cover etc. Even the rocker cover has been colour coded to match the body. A ceramic coated 6-into-1 Exhaust manifold feeds a stainless steel aftermarket straight through exhaust, with a rear ANSA chrome tip backbox. The engine is very free revving and sounds superb up on cam! It has that distinctive Japanese Zed car pitch. The gearbox a refreshed (and stronger) 5-speed manual transmission from a later 1980s car The car sits on a nice set of polished rim ROTA wheels with contrasting black centres to match the other black features of the body trim. The wheels have no kerb marks at all and the tyres are very good. She sits nice and low on Vogtland lowering springs. Inside is very original with the period perforated seats, and recent carpets throughout. The dash has a cap, which is of good quality so hard to distinguish, with a nice Grant racing leather-bound steering wheel to finish it off. This is a desirable non-sunroof shell, and has had a recent new headliner. Since being in the UK it has been in dry storage in the corner of my workshop for nearly 3 years; we have done various small jobs on it as and when time allowed. Due to work commitments and a number of other ongoing projects I just won't get the time to finish the car anytime soon, so would rather someone else buys it and enjoys it to its maximum potential !!! During my ownership I have totally refreshed the wiring replacing all of the dials with good second hand units as not everything worked properly. Every relay and motor in the car has been refreshed or replaced by a professional automotive electrician, and we’ve carried out most of the conversion for UK roads. It now has UK spec headlights and orange turn signals. Its just some of the wiring that needs altering to make the lights compliant for UK roads Inside the electrics now work as they should, lights wipers blower fan etc. There is wiring there for a radio/CD player if required.The carbs have also been off the car and thoroughly rebuilt with all new seals and gaskets as well as changing all the other engine fluidsJobs that will need doing:Oil pressure and water temp gauges need connecting up, illuminate as they should but not workingThe radiator fan needs fixing. There is a control module on the rad but doesn't cut in.There is a small dent and crease on the front of the bonnet (a good paint shop should be able to fade it in)There is a chip of paint on the drivers door ( again a job for a good painter)Although I rebuilt the carbs a few years ago, they were a bit spluttery when I started it last week. So I'd recommend a clean and rebuild again before its used in anger. I'll try and give the jets a clean if I get time next week. Currently showing 2766miles (speedo was replaced with good second hand unit as had malfunctioned) I’ve never go around to register it. Therefore it comes with all the necessary documents ready to send off, including Nova and Texas title ( this is the American V5 equivalent). I can assist with instructing you how to register it. (Pretty simple)The title states 'salvage / flood' as it was caught up in hurricane Catrina. Once registered in the UK this will not be recorded on the logbook as there was no structural damage whatsoever, it just got a bit damp, but I just prefer to be honest. Once registered it will also be in the Historic Vehicle class and thus TAX and MOT exempt here in the UK. Insurance is also approx. £200 a year fully comp. (limited mileage policy) As stated its 99.9% rust free. It looks as good underneath as on top. The only evidence of rust I can see is a tiny bubble on the fuel filler cap. Other than that frame rails, floors, sills, doors, boot lid, boot shuts, spare wheel well, bulkhead etc (all the usual rusty places) have no rust what so ever. It’s a sharp looking car and the paint is generally very good. Its just had a hand polish, but with a machine polish and detail would look a million dollars.This would make an awesome easy lockdown project. A bit of wiring and away you go! If you are unfamiliar with the 280Z, they share the same S30 styling and body as the earlier 240 and 260Z. They however came with the larger 2.8 engine, and as such Datsun mildly stiffened the body to cope with the increased performance. Due to this they are reputed to be a better basis for a ‘fast road Z’. The 280 never came to the UK directly from Japan, so this is a truly rare car over here.Viewing is obviously not possible at the moment. I am more than happy to share walkaround videos, share pictures etc via WhatsApp. I also have a video if it blasting down the streets of Texas a few years ago, before I shipped it back. CAN ALSO ASSIST IN UK / EUROPEAN TRANSPORT IF REQUIRED as there is a local transport company who are classic car transport specialists that can help. Call for details : 07900997969 Thanks
