Datsun’s S30 Z car is a favorite among enthusiasts, thanks to its sharp styling and robust powerplants. The 280Z was the last of the S30 Z cars, with the company producing it from 1975 until 1978.

Classic Auto Mall in Morgantown, Pennsylvania offers this 280Z for sale. As mentioned, this example received a major restoration that replenished both the interior and exterior, and it’s ready for plenty of driving.

The exterior features an eye-catching Metallic Gold color, and the body is straight, featuring good panel gaps and no rust. As part of the restoration, new panels replaced rusted ones, while the doors are total replacements. Also, all of the chrome trim and badging are in great shape. There is some minor surface rust on underbody components, but the floors and frame are rust free.

The headliner is in great shape, while the carpet only has a few minor blemishes and the door cards were recently recovered.
