Found this rare beauty on Craigslist. Bad listing, title said 83 Maxima, had one side pic, nothing else.

Description had NOTHING to do with the car, just mics. bits that the owner had done or problems... bad idle, bought parts, never put them in, too busy, great for a datsun lover....

I took a look at it.

All original paint, clean body, no rust or damage, 99,000 miles, decent interior and it had a 5-SPEED!!!! Everything but the power antenna works. A box of parts in the trunk, ran strong. I stole it for $1000.

Owner bought if from the original owner a while back with 93K on the clock, put 6k on it and did at least $1500 in work to it. New cam, high volume oil pump, complete tune up, new injectors, belts, hoses, vacuum lines....

The only big deal is the console is in about 50 pieces from him leaning on it and it shattered, drivers seat has a bit of wear. Car hesitates a bit when cold. Sun roof leaks and has duct tape on it... That is about it!

Gorgeous, i like so much the two tones, the interior is exact as the interior of my 910SSS hardtop.

Very clean! Didn't someone here pick up a diesel Maxima almost exactly like this not too long ago?

Also, this is the U10 body style, right? I love these. :tu:

How about brown with wood grain panelling???

Check out the one I landed late last year!

Now that is a wagon.

Very nice.
I have an '81 Maxima in the bronze color, but my interior is the same cantaloupe melon color. I love it and have loved it for 12 years now. The manual transmission had to be crazy rare when new. Mine is an auto, and I like it that way since it trades duty with my CRX convertible that is a 5 speed. One car is my stop & go bad weather car (Maxima) and the CRX is the spunky nice weather car. Sometimes choices are good to suite my mood on any given morning.

You will love.

I knew it was a keep when I saw the 5-speed. The guy selling it never put that in the ad so no one called. I assumed it was an auto, but shocked to see the stick. Has been a really good purchase.

For $4500 you can have it and do what you want with it. Send pics when you are done :)
