Description Datsun 280ZX Targa - Great condition

Datsun 280ZX Targa
2.8 Auto 1982 

MOT to 15th Sept 2017


I have owned this great car for a couple of years now and have made many mechanical improvements. It has covered about 86,000 miles and is in very presentable condition. It is very clean and is much admired at classic events etc. There aren't many 280ZX models left now and this one is in very good, well maintained condition.


I have added to the mileage in the last 2 years on a few long weekend trips. Over a 5 day trip last year in October
we drove to Luxembourg, Kitzbuhel in the Austrian Alps, Rastatt in Germany and Ghent
in Belgium back, totalling 1850 miles without fault. It is a great car and has been a nice unusual classic to use through the Summers that I have had it.


Since owning it I have had various work carried out to
make sure it was reliable for these trips including:


4 New shock absorbers

Various new bushes

New fuel pressure sensor

Replacement front caliper

New Coil

New Rotor Arm & Distributor cap

New Fuel filter

Steering Rack refurbished

New Master cylinder

Steering column Headlight/indicator switchgear rebuilt

Bonnet (back to metal) & bumper resprayed

Compression tested & oil pressure check.

Recently I have also had two injectors replaced.

I also have 21 MOT certificates going back to 1987 to verify the mileage
I have lots of old tax discs
I have bills for the work described in the listing
I also have the original wheels which will go with the car if it passes its reserve.
This is an original UK car - not an import.

Send me a message or call the number above in the listing details if you would like to come & see it.


It is now a great car in great condition & drives really well.  There are however a couple of blemishes on the doors where I removed a sticker each side but apart from that it is extremely clean & I have had the bonnet & front bumper prepared & resprayed last year as there was some crazing on the bumper. Apart from that there is only the odd scratch but nothing major and no signs of corrosion.  The interior is very tidy too with just the original clarion tape player currently not playing tapes! (I believe there are people who can refurbish then though), but the radio is original and works too.  Even the targa tops are in good condition with the handles and catches all working as they should.  I am sure
you know these cars are a rare sight nowadays and you get great comments wherever you


I now feel it is time to sell it on to someone else who
can take it to its next adventure & I have my eye on a few other things
that I would like to buy but no P/X offers please.


If you are interested then I would urge you to give me a call  for full description & details on 07775 626642, or better still please call to come and have a look.  I don't bite and was surprised to only receive 1 call on its last listing despite over 100 watchers and about 50 bids. Please remember if you bid then you might actually have to buy the car!

We are about 15 miles south of Oxford if you want to come & take a look over a cup of tea.

I also have a video of the car at this link for those who are interested. This was filmed before I had the bonnet and front bumper stripped and painted:

The boring bits...

Deposit of £500 within 24 hours by Paypal plus balance in cash on collection. Bank transfer is possible but funds must be cleared before documents transfer & collection. No overseas.

Thanks for looking.
