For over
40 years, Nissan “Z Cars” have been collected by enthusiasts all over the world.

Similar to the original 240Z and 280ZX, the completely redesigned 3rd
generation 300ZX became one of the most exciting high-performance sports cars
of its time.

Not only was the 300ZX a sensible alternative to European exotics,
it also became an aspirational car for a new breed of import enthusiasts who
found the 3.0 liter V6 extremely easy to tweak for massive increases in
horsepower.

 


In the
past 5 years, we’ve seen values on 1st and 2nd generation Z’s climb through the stratosphere - well into the 5-digit price range.

Following this trend, experts agree that over the next 5-10 years, original, pristine 3rd generation 300ZX's are expected to triple in price.



Sadly, original 3rd generation ZX’s have largely disappeared.

Because they are great highway commuters, most
were driven into the ground while others were eaten
alive by the merciless rust cancer.

Among tatty survivors, most were modified and raced by the new
generation of “Fast & Furious” juveniles
but
they will never be the same,

'cause a car is original only once.


 

Nicely
preserved, original examples, true survivors that have never been restored,
never needed restoration are highly sought after today.

They are the ones true
collectors lust for.

It’d
be a nice surprise to find an original example of the species that, despite being nearly 3 decades old, still sparkles and shines like
the day it rolled off the showroom floor.

 


The most likely place to unearth
such a rare gem would be Southern California, with its mild climate and large
number of sports car enthusiasts.

Such an amazing find is the
miraculously well preserved 300ZX presented for auction
here!


 

In September 1987, VIN *JN1HZ14S9JX273802*
left the factory gates in Oppama
Kanagawa, Japan.

On May 8th, 1988 it sold new at Quality Nissan in Huntington
Beach, CA to a mature woman who
always lived in the affluent suburbs of Anaheim Hills in Orange County.

 

 

Here is
the original California title “Pink Slip” issued on June 26th 1988.



This
300ZX has certainly led a charmed life.

Always
keeping the car garaged and pampered, she treated it like her one and only child - never leaving the golden state



Let’s
take a closer look now, top to bottom, inside and out.

 

Exterior:


This
wonderful Z car is as nice and as original as it gets.

Aside from the rear bumper, the car is still wearing 100% of
its factory applied paint.

It never suffered from neglect or corrosion and is
as virginally preserved as one could hope for.


 

The
tapered front end, low hoodline and retractable headlamps blend into
integrated bumpers.


 

Removing
the T-Top roofs transforms this GT into an open-air experience; yet it’s
carefully engineered aerodynamics minimizes bustling wind at higher speeds.

 


Please,
keep in mind, it's 28-years-old and there are some small imperfections:

Namely
a few brush-touched scratches and rock chips in isolated places and one notable
dent on the rear corner.

 

 

Here are some close-up photos.



As you
can see, there’s nothing to lose sleep over.  



Most
importantly, there is absolutely NO evidence of rust or collision damage or any other
mishap that would cause the enthusiast sleepless nights.

 

 

In fact, the immaculate body, trim and undercarriage not only speak volumes about the loving care this ZX has received but underscores its Southern California
provenance.


 

Laser straight panels and uniform gaps confirm its originality.



This Series 3 could serve as a true "reference car" at Z
Club gatherings.

 

 

A straight body is a hallmark of unmolested originality.



All rubber seals are in tact with zero cracking and the original paint has kept its deep luster.



Always
garaged, you won’t find many cars of this vintage in such outstanding, original
condition.

 


Surveying
the car's straight and smooth coachwork today, we marvel at every minute
detail.


 


In fact, with little
preparation, this fine example of the marque could be proudly displayed at a local car show or Concours d'Elegance.

 

 

 


With 4 nearly new Kelly Charger radials mounted to original 15” alloys,
wheel detail is amazing.

 

 

Speaking of detail, let us stress how straight the body is, how
glossy the paint: if you wouldn't know differently, you'd think to be looking
at a 8-year old, not a 28-year-old car.

This one is that clean!

 

 

While
we’re down on one knee, let's take a close look underneath.

 

 

More important than shiny paint is a healthy undercarriage.



This
original, unrestored ZX presents itself free of any kind of damage or
corrosion.



Newer
suspension components and exhaust show the car has been well serviced above and below.


 


There are no leaks or drips…



...only normal seepage from a 30-year-old undercarriage that was never steam-cleaned or undercoated.



Everything
below is undamaged and tight!

 


We'll
inspect the interior next, shall we?

 


The ZX’s
interior presents itself 100% original.

 

 

From the plush
carpet to the velour bucket seats; everything is in a wonderfully preserved state
without any tears or stains.

 



From the 6 foot+ driver to pint-size pilots; every body
type will enjoy extended trips in this bucket seat with lumbar
adjustment.

 

 

Sun
visors, headliner and glass T-Tops are superbly preserved as well.

Both T-Tops are lockable and are easily removed by pulling
the release handle.

 

  

This
cockpit communicates the intoxicating look and feel of the quintessential 80’s
sports car--the last really good one, if you ask the experts.



Supple, leather-covered
steering wheel still feels new with no cracks or dryness.

 

 

The
fascinating array of gauges, switches and buttons, including automatic climate control, cruise control, power windows, mirrors and door locks all actually
work; including the clock.

 


And the
48,602 miles are actual!



The original
AM/FM 4-speaker audio system with cassette (how modern!) takes a while to warm
up but sounds great, even when traveling at speeds well above the double
nickel.

The
factory Air-Conditioning still blows ice cold.



In the
glove box, you will find the original Owner’s Manual from 1988.



The door
panels, shifter and center console all show zero wear.


 

Original
dash top is pristine with zero cracks or warpage.

 

 

From the
carpets to the headliner, this immaculate, original interior is testimony to a highly
pampered, low mile ZX.

 

 

Alright,
let's lift the hatch and check out the rear storage compartment.



Inside
the spacious rear cargo area is enough room for both his & hers suitcases
and golf clubs.

 

 

 

Both
sunshades for the T-Tops and original storage bags can be seen here.

 

 

Original
jacking equipment (never used) is preserved under the carpet.



Original space-saver
spare tire and wheel are also included.

 

 

A picture says more than a thousand words:
this all original cargo area is clean!


Okay, let's check out the engine.

 

 

Raising the front hood reveals the silky smooth, V6 power plant.  



This is a numbers
matching drivetrain and is 100% factory correct, right down to its ancillaries,
decals and markings.

 


The fuel
injected, 3.0-liter V6 engine mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission brings
this ZX to perfection.


 

 

The
engine starts quickly, idles very smoothly without any smoke or unusual noises.

It's a
bullet-proof drive train, built with long distance touring in mind, certainly
provides more than sufficient agility to prevail on any U.S. highway.

compressor seen above.

 


Newer DieHard Battery



Beyond routine tune-ups &
services, thousands of dollars were invested over the years into preventative
maintenance.

No wear item was left unattended.



As a result, this ZX is mechanically as
strong as it is cosmetically.

 

 

Speaking
of cosmetics, let us stress how straight the body is, how glossy the paint: the
car actually looks better in person than in these photos!

 

 


Driving
Experience:


This
elegant ZX runs, drives, handles, and stops excellently.

The transmission
shifts imperceptibly smooth.

No overheating, smoke, nor untoward noises spoil
the incredible fun.

 

 

Characterized
by turbine-smooth power delivery from idle to redline, the 300ZX experience is
singularly exciting.

The roomy cockpit, featuring all the modern amenities such
as power assisted steering, power brakes and air conditioning, contribute
significantly to the joy of piloting this Series 3 Z.

 

 

 

Handling in this Nissan
is SUPERB with no rattles, shakes, shimmies or pulls. The brakes
always stop the car in a straight line without a hint of fading.

 

 

Overall,
one could not envision a more satisfying, stress-reducing workout than a
weekend getaway in this sexy machine.

All in all,
this Nissan ZX is a
thoroughly convincing performer and a joy to
drive!

 

 

Here is a
prime opportunity to acquire a fully-equipped, healthy, rust free, original, Series
3 ZX rapidly becoming one of the World's most collectible automobiles.

She's
the proverbial California car; even 28 years old, she performs amazingly and
looks as sexy as ever.

 

 

To find
another one like it would be nearly impossible, to restore a lesser one, a
tedious and expensive undertaking.


 

 

There's
but one stumbling block on the way to ZX heaven: Immaculate, 100% original, one owner, low mile examples almost
never come to market.

All the more reason to watch this one closely.



Hands down this is the best Gen-Three 300ZX you’ll ever find and with no reserve, will sell to the winning bidder this Monday.
