PostSubject: 1983 Datsun/Nissan Z31 300zx Shortwheel Base Slicktop/Hardtop (Only 1 In the country)   Sun Nov 03, 2013 11:18 pm

For sale here is my very rare 1983 Datsun/Nissan Z31 300zx SWB 2-Seater Slicktop(hardtop)

Selling it due to buying a house so all projects have to go

Its safe to say this car is very very rare, only 1 in the country infact!, it’s the early or earlies Z31, it was badged as a Datsun and Nissan

This beauty was brought to UK from California by its lady owner from US.

Shortwheel-base 2-seater Z31’s were only sold in Japan and the US, everywhere else in the world received the 2+2 models which weren’t as attractive and weighed loads compare to the 2 seaters.

What makes this Z really rare stand out even more is the fact it’s a Slicktop(hardtop), these are pretty rare in the US let alone to find one here in UK. Being a Slicktop has its many advantages, it’s a stiffer shell which makes it perfect for motorsport use, no leaky targa top to worry about and no wind noise!

Basic Details:

- VG30E 3.0 Litre V6 Naturally Aspirated (runs brilliant)
- Auto Transmission W/Switchable Overdrive (works perfectly, very nice and tight)
- 124,000 miles (low mileage for a car this age, and runs awesome, very looked after)
- custom coilovers & top mounts
-rota rbx alloys
- full manual conversion (not fitted)
-currently sorn'd but can come mot'd and tax'd for the right price
The car is ready to go!

- Cambelt was already done, it wasn’t due till 130k, but have the receipt that it was done by previous owner
- Lots of UK and US History, a lot of money spent on this car!
- Brand new original Nissan exhaust system fitted 3 weeks ago
- No rust on the shell, small minor bits here and there, but I can confidently say no major rust, sills are solid, arches are mint, its from California so expect the best when it comes to buying a rust free classic

Engine + Transmission:

It’s a non-turbo model to make things nice and simple, transmission and engine are both in very good condition, no leaks etc, car has been very looked after, runs and beautifully.

Have everything I believe is needed for a manual conversion. Consisting of the gearbox, low mileage checked and drained of fluid, subframe, propshaft, pedals and cylinders, clutch and flywheel and starter.

Suspension & wheels:

Struts converted to coilovers by GAZ shocks in London to my specification. Both height and dampening adjustable and coupled to custom eccentric camber top mounts (not another set like it, a truly one off set)

Wheels are Rota RB-Xs 17x9 et -13 and 17x9.5 et -19 with 245/40/17 & 215/40/17 tyres


All cloth interior in very good condition, brand new carpets which were imported from US, no rips or damage to seats or dash, very nice and comfy place to be.

Cruise control works and functions as it should.

Exterior Bodywork:

- Exterior is a little let down, could do with a few touch ups, I will sort out as many as I can before handing it over the new owner

- There is no major rust or corrosion to deal with so that’s a good thing. But paint wise it can do with a lil attention here and there, has a couple of minor dings etc, nothing major. Underneath car is very nice and solid too for its age, there is a small area of the sideview mirror cover is broken, you can see it the 2nd pic, bit of fiberglass will sort it

- Chrome trim however is very shiny and like new.

- Tail lights and clusters have no cracks or signs of age

- Headlight was converted from a sealed beam to H4 I believe, so maintence is easier, changing bulbs etc

Bad Bits:

Its an old car, so expect it lol

- The heater blower doesn’t work, but the heater itself works fine, I can feel the heat emit from the vents, just no blow probably the control unit or blocked hose.
- There is no stereo… expect a quiet drive back or if you’re with someone then enjoy the chat

Apart from that and the bodywork issue I mentioned, there is nothing else up with the car, mechanically sound and drives lovely.

Price is depending on what you want included but for arguments sake I'll put it all up for £2200 which I believe to be reasonable for the one off parts etc

Just added note, I have replaced the front and rear numberplate to the original US size plate in legal UK fonts, and have removed the sticky crap where the rear plates were fitted to.

Please bare in mind the car isnt perfect, its 28 years old, but for what it is, is in an amazing condition and very rare.

I've put all the pictures in a flickr set as they won't all fit in a thread. These can be found here http://flic.kr/s/aHsjLR42CF

I will be truly sad to see this to go but needs must, any questions ask in here or feel free to pm me.
