Custom 83 ZX

Garaged, nd most of the restoration has been done. All new brakes, ires, gnition coil, lugs, ires, ound proofed, arpet, indshield, lutch, lywheel, ushings. Needs AC and stereo. Odometer reads 83,000 but it isn’t right. I replaced the odometer with one which had fully operating guages. Cash only. Will consider trades

I’ve owned this car for about 3 years. It has been garaged since I’ve owned it. Prior to my purchase the car was restored probably 8-10 years before and was painted red. New frame rails. The original color was silver. I had the car painted the color in the pics. The body has some minor dings. Engine original 2.8 inline 6. Header on car when I purchased it. Here’s all the stuff I’ve done:

Completely removed all interior, rim, indows, ll rubber gaskets and seals on chassis and had car painted. Reinstalled minimal trim

All rust was removed including one wheel well repair and one door frame repair

New clutch and flywheel

Added complete body kit except spoiler.

Painted gold

Sound proofed the car before putting it back together

Interior good but not perfect. New headliner. New sheepskin seat covers. New carpet

Dash not original t this car so VIN on dash does not match stamp on body. No Title issues. Title in hand

Added all new polyurethane bushings except shock bushings. I have the bushings but the shocks are good

Installed custom steering wheel

Purchased reconditioned t-tops

New windshield

All new brakes (rotors, alipers and pads) including new rotors drilled and grooved. The car stops as good as most new cars

Tires have less than 300 miles on them.

Wheels are from the era. 15” Turbo Z swastikas polished and interior painted with very very minor curb rash. Tires are 215/60 R15’s

Chassis is tight

New plugs, lug wires and coil

Comes with car cover

The car needs a stereo (I have custom kit to fit your stereo of choice) and AC if you want it. I have no idea what is wrong with the AC. The are a couple minor issues to make the car near perfect. Keys do not match door locks. This never concerned me as I would put cover on the car if sitting outside for any length of time, hich was very rare. This is NOT a show car but gets a lot of looks

Mileage reads just under 83,000 but that’s wrong as I repaced the speedometer assembly and cable with one that completely worked. The previous one read just over 12,000 – it may have been 112,000. I don’t know the mileage but if you know these engines you know you can’t kill them. Transmission shifts very well
