Hey everybody, I'm selling my project car, because I found something else that I want. It's a rust free '75 Datsun 280z. Here's a list:


Custom Rustoleum gloss black paint job (sarcastic about custom)

Shaved side markers and emblems

Slotted mag wheels

Rising sun painted on the hood

Tinted tail lights


Mint 240z seats

Stripped sound deadener

Grant steering wheel

Custom Gauge panel (w/ boost gauge, AFR gauge, and 1 other gauge)

Hello Kitty horn button

POR-15/Truck Bed lined floors (Will be done before sold)

Dash Cap

Grenade Shifter Knob


P30 block (Supposed to have work done to it but I can't verify)

E88 Head

SU Carbs

6-1 Header

Port and polished

Dual valve springs

Upgraded valves


Turn Six lowering springs

New brake pads/shoes

Aftermarket sway bars

Extras: 3 Head Gaskets

2 Intake/Exhaust gaskets

*The motorwork I see is just from pulling the intake and valve cover. Not sure what else is done to it.


Front valance/ or front air dam

Carpet/Sound deadner (If you want, not a big deal for me)

Tires (Good for some burnouts or drifts )

A little fixing where the PO tried shaving the side signals

Paint (if you don't like the current paint job, it was painted (Rustoleum Gloss Black) with a paint brush and it's got a couple runs and you can see the brush strokes, but looks good from 10 feet

I'm not going to lie, she needs some more work to get her looking good, but once some little things are fixed she'll be a beauty.

The only reason I'm debating selling it is because I don't really have the time for a project car. There's not much left to get it running. There's a catch, if it sells I'd like to have first dibs on it if the buyer ever sells it. This car has sentimental value because it's my first car, and it's the first thing I've owned that I've payed for everything myself and invested a lot of time into. I'd like to get somewhere around $1,800, but I'd rather trade it for a Miata, S13, S14, Datsun 510, 620, E30 BMW, FB or FC RX7, Porsche 944, or something of that nature. I'm located in Daytona Beach, FL. Call or text me at 386-307-2593

When I first bought it:

You called a 240Z rust free. Really?

Does it have a 4 speed or 5 speed?

I'm being completely honest, rust free lol. It's got a 5 speed.
