Kidney, Anyone? 12,000-Mile 1983 Datsun 280ZX Turbo

As we have shown, the S130 chassis has potential, but if you were lucky enough to win this 1983 Datsun 280ZX for $17,200 you won’t flaring it like some bosozoku sled. That’s because its Tron-like 80s dashboard reads only 12,245 on the odometer! Resplendent in decidedly sleek Jade Gray paint job, its silver and black leather interior that resembles a finely crafted vintage hi-fi system.

True, it’s hobbled by a slushbox, but it makes up for that with original paperwork, tool kit, and T-top bags. The 280ZX was the car to have in the 80s β€” Knight Rider was even going to star one β€” and with that kind of rep, we would have listed it at one of the Arizona auctions rather than eBay. More photos below the fold.

    That is a nice one ! Add just a dash of lowering.

    This car would be my dream nissan with a set of deep”Wats” with machined lips and a modern nissan drivetrain with a 5-6spd.

    Very nice. I think I would keep it just the way it is. Would make a great ride for driving the so Cal freeways. Shifting and clutching can get old when you are stuck in traffic on the 405.

    I will now have the Knight Rider theme in my head all day now.

    This car is perfect as it is, dont need lowering, rb engine or anything. However i prefer the non digital dash. πŸ˜›

    Luckily I got my 1981 280zx for $1600 and I was able to just swap in the L28ET and the T-5 tranny for cheap cuz 12k or more for a 280zx is kinda crazy.

    Although i prefer a 5 speed transmission, I am interested in this car at the price listed.
