* Up for sale is a classic 1987 Nissan 300ZX 2-seater sports car coupe with a T-Top. Red exterior with Tan interior. * This low slung sports car has less than 125,000 actual miles. * The engine runs like a dream, well oiled sewing machine; a 5-speed manual that responds quick. * A/C, ower windows, achometer, riginal AM/FM stereo cassette player, loth seats, .0L V6, i-test gasoline, ear spoiler, rivate seller. * I think there is an airbag on the driver's side (but I am not positive). Both my wife and I drove this car; it has always been a real delight for local trips and also on long distance trips. * We have enjoyed driving this Z for over 17 years and now have difficulty getting in and out of it. Two sets of keys are included.

* CAR NEEDS TLC (tender loving care). * It will need paint soon as the clear coat is peeling and the red and black are fading especially in the sun prone areas. * The interior is comfortable, ut well worn. The back of the seats suffered from sun damage, racking and peeling and probably should be replaced. * An external bolt on one side of the T-top is missing, o the passenger seat sometimes gets wet. * The windshield wiper light stays lit on the dash when the engine is on. * The headliner is no longer there (it got old and cracked so we pulled it off). * The T-tops can be removed easily and the jackets for them are included. * The inside shades for the T-top are missing. * The A/C works well but not on super high. * The power antenna makes clicking noises when it raises and lowers. * The stock AM/FM stereo radio is still there and plays cassettes, ot CD’s. * The body has been well maintained except for a few dings and some damage on both bumpers. It was never in a bad accident while we drove it!! We recently realized there is rust inside the hatchback area from I think a leak at the rear wiper (so the hatch area gets wet when it rains). The carpeting in the hatch area is faded and should be replaced.) * The struts that hold the hatchback open do not work (we use a pvc pipe to prop it up). Vehicle is parked on-street. * Gas tank gauge shows ¾ tank when tank is actually full. I noticed if we overfill the gas tank, e smell fumes. * The passenger door must be locked from the passenger side.
