1995 Nissan Fairlady 300zx
The sports cars in Nissan's stable were packed full of amazing thoroughbreds during the 1990s. Built with a timeless exterior design, the Z32 was an absolute work of automotive art. They also were comfortable, reliable, and fun to drive, and this manual transmission, naturally aspirated version is a great example of how well this car was built! Our T-Top equipped 1995 Fairlady is finished in Arctic White Pearl (QN0) and is in good shape overall aside from some minor dings and scratches associated with normal use. While they don't fit as well as the OE bits, this one has been outfitted with an FRP Racing Silhouette front lip and a sexy set of TBO side skirts to enhance the overall aesthetic even more. At only 92k verified and documented miles, this grand tourer is fresh off a recent service and is turn-key ready to rock.
The interior design is spacious and driver-focused. All the controls surround the gauge cluster, allowing your hands to stay close to the steering wheel. The 2+2 version gives the cabin more leg and headroom and raises the capacity to four folks. The seats are finished in a light gray cloth and show a little wear on the driver's seat bolster which can be expected over time. Other than that they lack any major rips, stains, or tears. The door cards and the headliner lack any major blemishes and have held up well over the past quarter-century. The t-tops come with covers to keep the heat down but can be removed to let some sun in. The climate controls are simple to use. We have recharged the a/c but it's likely got a small leak in the system and will eventually blow warm. Power windows, locks, and power-folding mirrors, all function properly and make daily driving more enjoyable. The radio was ditched so the next owner can feel free to choose a more current head unit for music. We frankly prefer to hear the wail of the VG V6 that you'll hear about shortly.
This 300ZX came with a compact and punchy VG30DE engine. Fresh off an oil and filter service the 3.0L starts up quickly thanks to a new 12v battery. A 3" single exit catback sounds decent and delivers a deeper bark over the factory pipes and a new engine air filter helps this V6 breathe clearly. Enthusiasts will love that a close-ratio 5-speed manual transmission is paired with the motor allowing the driver more control. The shifts are solid with no grinding, and the clutch has a great release point. Power is sent to the rear wheels as it should be, and the throttle response is better than its force inducted stablemate. The suspension was upgraded to Bilstein springs and struts and feels predictable and is able to handle the rigors of daily abuse. The brakes are confident and the power steering is nicely weighted and delivers better than average feedback. To complete the package 17" Autostrada Modena wheels have been wrapped in new Falken tires at all four corners. They will deliver premium year-round grip and last for tens of thousands of miles to come while keeping the ride relatively quiet.
