Default 76 Datsun 280z

SOLD

I really really really hate to do this, but I don't have much of a choice. With the purchase of a new SUV recently I don't have the time, or money for the Z anymore. As much as I want to keep her and make her pretty I can't so she's going up for sale. I'm not in any hurry to sell it and I don't mind sitting on this thing for another year. One thing tho is I could end up finding a way to afford working on her again so come buy it before I change my mind.

Asking/Offering Price: 1500 obo (I'm willing to make some deals here)
Email Address/Phone Number (optional): 515-249-9531
Location: South Side Des Moines
Name: Nick DeVries
Year: 1976
Make: Datsun
Model: 280z
Mileage: ??? The gauge stops at 99k so it's been rolled over.
Title Status: Clean/Clear
Color Exterior/Interior: Primer, black, grey, silver, rusty
Transmission: 4 speed manual (What real men love)
Drivetrain: RWD baby!

So a little bit about the car.

Stock engine with a rebuilt head (not sure on the exact time frame but no longer then 3 years ago)
Trans and diff are in great shape
Runs and drives great!!!
Crank pully has been replaced
Toyota truck 4 pot big brake swap up front
300zx seats (don't fit for shit and are only held down by one bolt, you'll want different seats)

Bad:
Rusty
Strut mount insulator on rear driver side needs replaced FIXED!!!
Struts are blown
Either the clutch master or slave is leaking like no other and needs replaced
Leaks oil like no other and will turn your driveway/garage floor black in minutes
Seats don't fit so you'll want/need different ones.
Heater core was bypassed do to a leak
Gas tank is rusty and needs replaced
One tire is both bald and flat FIXED!!!
Friend hit a deer while driving it so the hood is smashed (nothing else was damaged but that)

Good news!
I have the strut mount insulator! JUST INSTALLED
I have a new heater core!
I'm replacing the bad tire! Been Replaced
I'm also willing to make some deals with you about other things as well.











Some updated pics

There is a hole behind one of the seats. Idk how big or small it is, I only looked at it once when I first bought the car and it wasn't big back then.

Frame rails I'm not sure what shape they are in right now. I'll have to jack it up and take some pics.

I'm willing to work out some deals here too people.

I can fix a lot of these things for the right price which I'll gladly discuss and negotiate with you.

Things I'm already going to fix is the strut mount insulator and replace the bad tire. I am also willing to fix the oil leak, replace the struts, and include a sparco seat with harness and purchase slider seat mounts for install. These things will cost extra to do tho but willing to negotiate it.

What exactly is wrong that's making it leak so bad? Bad oil sending unit?

I haven't looked into it yet. I'm not entirely sure where the leak is coming from. It's from the front passenger somewhere tho. Just a bad gasket I'm assuming. Could be the front main tho. It's hard to tell since there is oil everywhere so I need to clean it off to help source where it's coming from exactly.

Either way it appears to be a simple gasket replacement. It's getting plenty of oil pressure.

Going to be installing the new strut mount insulator (strut hat) and replace the tire this week. Will be starting on it tonight so hopefully will have it done by tomorrow or Wednesday. Also going to look into the oil leak some, and try to figure out if its the clutch master or slave that's bad and replace that as well.

I've got one serious person looking at it waiting on money, so if anyone really badly wants this time is running out.

Did some work on her today. The garage door doesnt shut all the way so plenty of water was on the floor making it a mess. While dropping the suspension I found a bad lca bushing in the process which I will be replacing. It might look like a janky job but the reason I dropped everything this way was to avoid removing a brake line since these brakes are a killer bitch to bleed. Anyway some pics of the progress. Gotta go get a bushing tomorrow and I'll have her back together with more pics.



As you can see the strut mount insulater was fucked!!!

Found out the local part stores doesn't have the stock bushing. All they have are the energy suspension kits so I had to order one from Courtesy Nissan which is in TX. Might not have it fixed by this weekend due to waiting for parts. Plus I might be going to WI this weekend as well so most likely wont be in town.
