Improvements in technology and changes in the world meant that a new and better Z car had to be introduced. The Datsun 280ZX made its debut in 1979, greatly resembling its predecessor. The general long-hood fastback profile remained, along with the hood bulge and sugar-scoop headlamp buckets.

The body style, color, and shape of this 280zx are easily some of it's most distinct features. The custom maroon paint seems almost new, as the blemishes are few and far between. It is accented by professional blue pinstriping tastefully painted across the hood, down the sides, and on the trunk. The body shows no signs of damage and is very straight. The bumpers are original and show minimal signs of wear. Finally, this 280zx is complimented by its brand new Konig wheels wrapped in new BF Goodrich tires. As you will see in our numerous photographs, this 280zx is a very complete car that will demand the attention of any Z car enthusiasts.


When the 280ZX was introduced, numerous changes were made to accomodate new technologies and the demand for a versatile sports car. Amung those changes was a vast upgrade to the interior of the Z car. It was roomier and there was a marked improvement in interior appointments; the ZX was more luxurious than its predecessor, with cut-pile carpet throughout and full color coordination. The luxurious feel is matched with a cockpit driver-oriented design, creating a balance of class and power. The steering wheel has an A-shaped spoke arrangement, more disco flash than sports-car pure.

The interior in this 280ZX is nothing short of excellence. The seats are in incredible condition with no sagging and very minor wear. The dash has no cracks, and all of the gauges work properly. This 280ZX is a highly optioned car with power windows, power locks, tilt-wheel steering, cruise control, power steering, and power brakes. The stock radio was replaced with a Sony AM/FM CD stereo system with auxilary options. The door panels are in good shape. The passenger door handle housing is broken but doesn't take away from the overall condition of the car.

The engine and drivetrain were carried over largely intact from its predecessor. The suspension was still fully independent with struts up front, but the rear struts were changed to semi-trailing arms. The standard 4-speed manual was replaced by a 5-speed gearbox with a 3.70:1 final-drive ratio for quicker acceleration.

Test Drive...

Driving this 280ZX is simply special. Datsun did a terrific job of manufacturing a vehicle that has all of the creature comforts, has enough edge to meet the demands of performance junkies, and is dependable enough to be driven daily. The clutch is easy-moving but makes solid connection every time you shift. The steering is tight and effortless. The L20E I6 engine mated to a 5-speed gear box quietly pulls you in to your seat with every press of the gas. The independent suspension makes for quick and easy turns. The drive of this 1979 Datsun 280ZX has an addictive characteristic that will have you pleasantly surprised every time you get behind the wheel.

This 1979 Datsun 280ZX is turn key ready and needs absolutely nothing but to be enjoyed by its new owner. With an incredible and stylish exterior, a creature-comfort interior built for a combination of luxury and sport, and the original drivetrain in pristine running condition, this 280ZX is a perfect example of the late model Z car. If you are interested in this 280ZX, PLEASE give us a call! We look forward to hearing from potential buyers who are willing to make offers on our vehicles or even just an enthusiast who has a story to tell. Don't miss your chance to own this incredible 1979 Datsun 280ZX!

Collector's Dream Cars Note from the Owner...

I am a “used car dealer” but before that, I’m an automobile enthusiast. I love original, rare and high quality modified vintage and modern cars. Over the past 15 years I’ve been in business, I have come to appreciate an expanding selection of high-demand, high value vehicles as well. I specialize in and I am always on the lookout for cars and trucks that were cherished by their previous owners.
I have an experienced eye for quality and I’ve discovered that my preferred buyers can instantly discern such a vehicle and I have therefore, built my business and reputation around finding these kinds of cars for this type of customer. Super low miles and/or gentle ownership are strict requirements but a car must do something for me on a personal level if there is any hope of convincing you, the buyer, that this is an above average, exceptional vehicle. If nothing about the car excites me, it probably won’t do much for you either and I would soon be out of business.

With just four employees and no sales people, I realize how unusual a “dealership” like mine may be at a first glance. It has taken great care and effort to create such an organization and often, an unusually high investment in a particular car we are about to list. To sell the best it is critical to have a trusted expert in my corner. First we do an exhaustive 130 point inspection on each and every vehicle and hope nothing escapes our methodical investigation. Experience has shown that everything I spend making a car truly “right” will come back to me not only with a higher selling price, but a happy customer that says good things about Collector's Dream Cars. Moreover, it allows us to describe the car with ease and confidence, something that simply is not possible unless we think it is true. If major issues are found or the cost of fixing the car the way it should be makes it too expensive to sell, my choice is an easy one. I simply absorb a few hundred dollars loss for my trouble and sell it at auction so you don’t get a headache over the vehicle.

After the vehicle is fully checked over and made whole at any level it needs to be, we researches its history, documents, documenting originality and authenticity. Historical significance, rarity, special features, possible modifications, and much more are used to accurately describe the vehicle with integrity and honesty. Most important for the potential buyer are the 100 to 200 high resolution pictures that I take myself. The pricey equipment I use would be right at home in the hands of the very best professional photographers and I’ve developed a logical format that walks you around the entire vehicle with close-up shots of every square inch. I provide detailed views of the interior, under the hood and then put it on a lift to show the undercarriage and confirm that the beauty of the car you are considering is not merely skin deep. Even our detailers are enthusiastic about the cars they meticulously clean. Reconditioning can sometimes take several days as we do all that we can within reason to get our vehicles in tip top condition visually and cosmetically. We do Way more than just a cheap detail. Our details are more like refurbishing to as close to new as we can possibly get our vehicles.

Usually, I’ll also include a high definition video that shows the car doing its thing. If it’s a fast car, we film it going fast. If it’s a 4x4 you’ll see it crawling up a hill. In every case you will hear things like a rumbling exhaust, working sound system and watch gauges operation as well.

No “dealer,” on-line or in the real world, takes it to this level. No other seller or organization provides you, the buyer, with so much information. I do this because it is the only way I can convince a person; often a world away, unable to touch or feel their purchase that my vehicle is for real and what I say is an honest assessment. All the above is necessary for me to stay in business while keeping integrity intact. I want every buyer to be happy and I need glowing feedback on eBay. To accomplish that I need satisfied customers that are as thrilled with their purchase as I was when I bought it.

If you have any questions at all, please call me on my cell at: 702-544-0235. If your inquiry is sincere and your offer is serious, you’ll find me the most accommodating business partner you’ve ever dealt with. If you call or e-mail asking for my reserve or “what is my bottom line” I will be looking for ways to politely end the conversation. Until you are ready to actually make an offer, I will happily quote you a liberal suggested retail price – a number we both know will not buy the car so, don’t waste your time, or mine. I am after all, a “used car dealer.”​​​​​​​
