1995 Nissan Fairlady 300ZX 2+2
The Z32 was years ahead of the competition at the time it was released. The styling, technology, and performance were all class-leading at the time, and the car has aged gracefully compared to many of the designs emanating from this era. This 1995 is offered with a mere 90k verified miles and is finished is a subtle (673) Platinum Mist. The 2+2 has a few minor dings and scuffs top note on the body but is otherwise in wonderful shape. Recently serviced and legally imported this twin-turbo grand tourer would make for an ideal car to take on a road trip or even a quick jaunt to your local Cars and Coffee. Reliable, powerful, and inexpensive these Fairlady Z's are top-notch Japanese Classics and are undoubtedly a savvy investment!
The cabin is in good nick still and includes a couple of upgrades and nice OEM accessories. This example even includes factory backup sensors that actually work. The cabin almosts wraps around the driver and the gauges tilt ever so slightly inward. The dash is in good shape and lacks any major imperfections aside from a slight cut that's about an inch in length. A driver-side SRS airbag is included and power windows and electric folding mirrors work as they should. A Kenwood radio replaces the factory one and works as it should. The dark blue upholstery is made of durable cloth and doesn't have any large imperfections such as rips, holes, or tears. They do have some light staining and they are comfy on long trips as long as you're sitting up front. The door cards are in average shape and are the carpets and the rear cargo shade is actually still present in the boot. That's not to say this car is perfect as the a/c no longer blows cold and the power door locks don't work. Still, at 25 years old, the condition is remarkable and even the OEM manuals are still in the glovebox.
Mechanically, these Z's were designed to stand the test of time. The VG30DETT that powers this chassis is fresh off an oil and filter service and boats a new 12v battery. The V6 cranks over quickly and sets into a low vibration idle. With a set of new serpentine belts, the next owner won't have to worry about any squealing on startup. Mated to an automatic gearbox, power is sent rearward to the proper drive wheels. The gearbox shifts as it should and the Z32 accelerates impressively, even for current performance standards. New engine air filters maximize fuel economy and power and should last for a good while. The suspension gives the chassis a planted feel, and the two-door handles large and small road imperfections with confidence. The brakes have been overhauled and the front receives new pads and rotors, and the rear gets a set of new pads. The OEM alloys are wrapped in new all-season rubber at all four corners. They quiet the ride down nicely and should last for tens of thousands of miles to come.
