  • The incredible 1978 Datsun 280Z featured here is finished in gorgeous Arctic Silver Metallic over black interior. This magnificent motorcar has been meticulously maintained and comes with complete logs documenting its extremely low miles. Just released from over 32 years of collector ownership, this 1978 Datsun 280Z is the one to add to any premier collection.

    During the 1960s, Datsun produced the successful series of Fairlady roadsters and began working on a new line of GT cars that would be stylish, fast, and inexpensive. The Datsun 240Z, introduced in 1970 with a six-cylinder engine, boasted 151 bhp and could sprint to 100 km/h in just 8.0 seconds. In order to meet stringent federal requirements placed on motor vehicles, Datsun introduced, in 1975, the technically updated 280Z, with Bosch fuel injection on a slightly enlarged engine, preserving the performance of their flagship ‘Z’. The 280Z was able to post numbers on par with the original Z but added a new level of flexibility and reliability thanks to the injection system. 

    I personally believe the investment potential of these up-and-coming classics will grow beyond your imagination! We are proud to offer this stunning 1978 Datsun 280Z to the most sophisticated investor, collector, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this great classic.

    Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years, with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014, and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or [email protected]
