1989 Nissan Fairlady 300ZX
Available for: $14,495
Nissan's Fairlady Z32 was a bold design and a clear indication from the manufacturer that the boxy designs of yesteryear were gone for good! The exterior design has aged well, and there is no mistaking the classic 90's wedge-shaped profile. This 1989 Nissan Fairlady is finished in a stunning Diamond Black Pearl (732) and aside from minor scuffs, rock chips, and minor trim wear is in great shape. With a mere 79k verified and documented miles, this gem has plenty of life for the road ahead. The exterior remains unmodified with the exception of an aftermarket cat-back exhaust system and a set of 17" Stern wheels. This naturally aspirated V6 has just had a slew of recent service performed and is turn-key ready for the next owner to enjoy. If you looking for a sporty grand tourer, this 300zx is the perfect budget-friendly fit and a certified Japanese classic.
The interior design is driver-focused and is nicely equipped for comfort and convenience. The driver benefits from a one-touch window function, tilt steering column, and a power-adjustable seat to find the perfect seating position. The power windows both function properly and create a unique cabin experience when the t tops are removed. Other power amenities include power locks, power mirror adjustments with a power-folding feature for tight parking. All of this equipment works properly and makes daily use enjoyable. The A/C and heat are easily controlled thanks to the automatic climate controls located adjacent to the steering wheel, within arms reach. The t-tops allow for some added natural light, which makes it feel larger in the cabin. When the weather is nice out, you can easily remove the tops and store them in the rear cargo area. The rear seat trim panels show some shrinking in the vinyl, a common issue on Z32's. The dash is in good nick, lacking any cracks or bubbling, but does show minor lifting around the defrost vent from UV exposure. The OEM radio was ditched for a Kenwood headunit and works great for all your musical needs. Although the door cars are not in perfect shape, they have held up well over the years. The seats are wrapped in light grey cloth that is comfortable and still soft to the touch. The driver seat has minor bolster wear and minor discoloration. The rear seats are in great shape and are lacking any tears in the fabric, and the carpet lacks any stains. The headliner above is free from any stains and sagging and is in great shape.
The drivetrain is simple and straightforward. Powered by a VG30DE 3.0L, V6 parts are readily available here stateside and make service a breeze. Our trained technicians have installed a new timing belt and water pump along with a new thermostat to complete the most expensive of all the maintenance bits. The VG30DE engine fires up immediately, thanks to a new engine harness, new 12v battery, and brand new spark plugs installed here at the dealership. This naturally aspirated engine is no slouch and performs well even without the aid of turbos. A 5-speed manual gearbox and 3 pedals, allow the driver to call the shots for proper gear selection depending on your driving situation. Our trained technicians have additionally replaced the driveshaft and clutch master cylinder. The clutch engages easily and lacks any grinds when you are shifting through the gears. The shifts are solid with the help of new shifter bushings that eliminate any slop typically found in the Z. Lastly we installed a new intake manifold gasket, to ensure a steady idle. The suspension is responsive and feels great through corners. The brakes are confident easily slowing this Fairlady to a stop. A set of brand new Falken tires were installed at all four corners to give you all the grip you need for tens of thousands of miles ahead. Fresh off of a recent oil and filter service, this Z32 is turn-key ready to take on the roads here in the US.
