1977 Datsun 280Z

Mileage: 144,000

$14,999

1977 Datsun 280z
Lexus 1uzfe vvti V8 swap
Bought a complete parts car 1998 lexus ls400 with 140k so I would have everything needed for the swap. Been about a year and a half since the swap and 15k miles.
The Datsun was an Arizona car its entire life and parked in 2001 due to the original owner losing his license. The car was torn down to a bare chassis when this was built. Every part was removed, refurbished, and rebuilt. Chassis rust was very minimal, but even so anywhere that was thin was cut back to good metal and replaced with fresh sheet metal. Patches replaced were part of the passenger floor pan where there was a heater core leak, battery tray, and trunk slam latch area. The frame rails were replaced to reinforce the chassis with 2”x1” 14 guage steel tube stock. Smuggler boxes removed and replaced with tube stock. This car has been my daily driver and fun car and is such a riot to drive, and has the daily reliability of the lexus donor! Reason for the sale is that we are trying to save for a deposit on a house.
If you don’t like the safari look I have other wheels and tires that are included and you can just lower the coilovers!
Don’t like the patina? Feel free to get bodywork and paint done to your liking! The benefit of the car the way it sits, is that it's clear what you're getting into as any filler that was on the car has been stripped, it's got dents and dings but nothing a confident body shop couldn’t work with.
