Or your driveway
Nissan has produced some of the finest Japanese sports cars in existence, and the list includes legendary names like the cult-classic GTR and the drift-happy 370Z. Fans of the Nissan Z-Family will be quick to tell you about the tuning potential of the 350Z and current 370Z, and with the 400Z incoming, Nissan enthusiasts are truly living in a golden age of performance motoring. But a recent listing on eBay has us all nostalgic for one of the lesser spotted Z-cars. This 60,000-mile 1988 Nissan 300ZX is currently bidding at $9,700 and is in museum-quality condition.
The Z31 300ZX was designed by Kazumasu Takagi, produced between 1983 and 1989, and under the hood of this beast, you'll find a VG30E naturally-aspirated V6 engine which produces a measly 160 horsepower. The good news here is that the car on sale comes with a five-speed manual transmission, instead of the more common four-speed auto, and sends power to the rear wheels.
The exterior of the featured car shows off an OEM white paint job and the standard Z-branded wheels look in immaculate condition. According to the seller, the car comes with new tires, struts, shocks, as well as the factory T-top covers and original factory car cover.
The interior of this classic Nissan will teleport you back to a time when wolves still prowled Wall Street: it’s brown everything, from the seats to the carpets to the steering wheel, and it looks to be in stunning condition The seller is including all factory manuals, and a clean California title with the car. It might not be one of the most desirable Japanese classics around, and for the money you can get cars that offer way more power, but it is undeniably cool, and will stand out from the usual JDM classics at your local Cars and Coffee.
