    78 280Z Side Trim Parts

    My 78 280Z has the stainless trim pieces on each side. The car just returned from paint where the holes to mount the trim were to be welded in. But that didn't happen so I now must re-install the trim. I'm missing several of the small, pointed end pieces that fit into each side trim piece. They are about 1 1/2 inches long. They are easy to remove by just by drilling out the one rivet that holds it to the body and then pull it from the long trim piece. Please PM me or contact me at 843 450 6512. Thank you for your help, Tom.

    1978 280z 3.1L Turbo LDS Parting Out

    I suspect that my request is a bit too late. I just realize how old the sellers post is. Does your 78 have the stainless side trim pieces? The ones that are in three pieces on each side. One on the front fender, one on the door and one on the quarter panel. I need a few of the pointed end pieces that slide into the ends of each trim piece. Please PM me or contact me at 843 450 6512. Thank you for your help, Tom.

    1978 280Z Door Latch Mechanism Driver Side

    I responded a moment ago but I don't see my post. I need the driver's side only. Please send your Paypal address along with the total charge and I'll transfer the payment. My zip is 29582, North Myrtle Beach, SC. Thank you, Tom.
  4. I need a complete door latch mechanism for the driver's side on a 1978, 280Z. It needs to be complete with all the rods, holders, clips and etc . including the parts that attaches to the little button on the top of the door, that you push down to lock and pull up to unlock the door from inside. This part stands between me being able to finish all the door work on this car so obviously having it in hand is very important to me. Please private message me or contact me at 843 450 6512 in order for me to arrange for your payment. Thank you, Tom. (If I can't answer when you call, please leave a message and I will return your call asap.)

    71 240z antenna parts needed.

    Yes. My mast parts are in bad condition. One is broken the other, bent. That's why I chose not to use them. I'm not sure about the condition of the motors. I've never tested them. When I last needed an antenna, a friend gave me an used after market one that was manual and worked fine. However, it was mated to a new, $60.00 Ebay Pioneer radio that was very basic, and of non "audiophile" quality. I always spend the dollars on making the z cars I deal in run well and look good, not on sound systems unless a customer wants to upgrade. This has only happened one time over the past several years and I had the buyer work directly with a sound system shop to design and install it. It would appear that many people today use a secondary source for music in their cars., like an I-pod or cell phone.
  6. I found this 1983 280ZX in a building in South Carolina where had been setting since 1995. It is an original, untouched, unmolested car with all the original interior, exterior and under hood parts. Due to several bad storms resulting in roof collapses, the body is a mess, complete with rust holes a dented roof, etc. In my opinion, the body is far past restoring. When it was parked it had 90,852 miles on the clock and according to it's owner, ran perfectly. It was originally parked due to a family dispute involving his son's irresponsible driving that resulted in several traffic tickets the last one included the police knocking on their door after the ZX outran the policeman who had been chasing it. I found out about the car several months ago and purchased it. Parked behind the car was a 1950, short bed Ford pickup that had only suffered minor damage and was worth lot of dollars. The owner hired a body shop the repair the pickup and they had to move the ZX in order to get to the Ford. The body man managed to buy the 280 when he moved it out of the way of the truck. I had to buy the ZX from the body shop. This car is the luxury model with all the bells and whistles including power everything, t top sun roof, etc. Most consider the 1983 ZX to be the most refined and best built of the series. This car has an R200 differential, four wheel disc bakes,good glass, hard to find, low back leather seats that could be recovered and used or resold for good money. I know these seats, in decent condition, are scarce as hens teeth because several month ago, I tried to find a pair for another ZX I was restoring. The ones I did locate were in terrible condition and were very expensive. I finally recovered the hi backs that were in the car. Under the hood, from radiator to the firewall is untouched and in good condition. I have not attempted to start the engine but it "turns" freely. In order to start it for the first time, I would do several things in order to not damage the engine including fresh oil, oiling the valve train, removing the spark plugs and oiling the rings through the plug holes to free up any stuck piston rings. In the past I have used Marvel Mystery Oil for this purpose. When I bought the car, all it's tires were flat and would not hold air. I replaced them with other wheels with like new, Michelin tires that have less than two thousand miles on them. I will sell the car with the other wheels and Michelins and will include the original Iron cross wheels. This car will make the ideal donner car and will have many parts that can be stripped and sold. After you are done with the transplant, the junk man can have it and should pay in the neighborhood of $200 - $300 for what's left. The car is located in North Myrtle Beach, SC. My price is a firm at $2500., but I'll consider trades or partial trades, up or down. If you have a serious interest in this car, I have many pictures that I can text to you and please call me so that I can answer your questions. If I can't answer when you call, please leave a message with your number and I will return your call asap. Thank you for your interest, Tom. 843 450 6512.

    71 240z antenna parts needed.

    Duff, Earlier today I was searching for a part at zcardepot.com. They also have several choices that may help you ranging from a $19.00 manual antenna to their best one, a $65.00 fully automatic. I know what I would do in order to have decent radio reception. You can chose to deal with a forty year old piece or replace it with a much better one that doesn't cost an arm and leg. Please don't misunderstand me. The one on my shelf is still yours for the taking if you decide that is what you want. I have been dealing with "Mat" at the depot. He is always dependable and manages to ship my orders quickly. Tom

    78 280Z Interior Pictures Needed

    Little Tujunga, Thanks again for the picture. After studying it and the placement of the brackets my memory took over and I've got it. I finally was able to determine what hardware came from the 240 and what came from the 280 that I'm putting back together. All is well in Datsun land again. Tom

    71 240z antenna parts needed.

    I will gladly give you one of mine that still has the antenna in place. However, it's rusted and the rubber parts are dried and broken. If you do have a good motor, I believe that MSA sells the mast part and they are not expensive. I could be wrong but probably in the twenty buck territory. Check them out and let me know what you decide to do, Tom.

    71 240z antenna parts needed.

    Duff, I have a couple on the shelf. Two cam from 73, 240s and one from a 78, 280. I don't know if they are what you want but I'm reasonably certain that all of the early cars use the same one. You can have it for the whooping sum of ZERO bucks plus shipping. Oooo what a deal! After all these years have passed, I feel the need to give you a "hand up" for motivational purposes. Please contact me if you want it, Tom. 843 450 6512

    steering column cover clam shell 280z

    I saw the part you need listed today at maseraticompound .com. Strange name for a company that has so many parts for our cars. Each part is cleaned and inspected before being pictured on their website and they are really good about shipping your purchased fast. They even have, obscure parts like rollers and stops for side windows, etc. I have bought items from them a number of times and they are very good to deal with. So if you are in need of a Datsun left handed widget for a sky hook, they probable will have it in stock at a reasonable price.

    78 280Z Interior Pictures Needed

    Thank you for the photo. And I apologize for my slow response. Would it be possible to send a few pictures of the support brackets? They would be very helpful. Thanks again, Tom.
  13. I'm installing a new interior on a 1978, 280Z, coupe. I need pictures of the rear floor area, in particular, the hinged, press board cover that rests over the spare tire and the associated mounting hardware. The FSM is of no help pertaining to this subject. My long story made short is that I removed all these parts in preparation for installing a new interior and to have the car painted. This took place about two years ago and I didn't label the parts when removed. Although I did have the car painted back then, I stored it until the present. For the last several years I have been dealing in first and second generation Z cars and about ten other cars have passed through my little home based business since I stored the 78, 280Z two years ago. I added to my problem, when I parted out a 73, 240Z and all the press board and hardware floor parts from at least two cars are now mixed together. I've now completed most of the interior work including door panels, headliner, dash work, lock work, glass work, etc and need to finish the rear floor section. Now when looking at my pile of floor cover parts, it just doesn't make since to me. If someone would be kind enough to send me pictures of this area including the placement of the mounting brackets, etc., I would be able to finish my work and send this car along to another happy Z car person. This situation should remind us of the importance of taking pictures of and labeling parts when removing them. I've been playing with these cars for decades and have touched about every part on them, but this deal has me "stumped". Thank you in advance for your help, Tom. 843 450 6512 (mayolives) .

    Advice Needed To Install New Autometer Gauges

    Thank you Miles. "A big of snakes" is probably a good description. It will stay in place and I'll keep my good conduct badge, cheers, TB.

    Advice Needed To Install New Autometer Gauges

    Miles, Thank you for the reply and the link. I did feel a little guilty when I posted, but a number of the links I found when searching would not open. I suspect because they were many years old and ? lost? during updates? I did find some You Tube videos that were helpful. I removed a dash from a 78 280 some years ago and recently one from a 73 240 and the job wasn't fun, for sure. I'm currently knee deep restoring my 73 240 and removed the windshield a few days ago. I wanted to complete all the under the dash work before I installed the new glass. Do you believe it would be easier in the long run, to go ahead and remove the dash in order to install the gauges, check out the wiring and prepare it for a new dash cap? It has the original dash in poor condition and doesn't have a cap installed. Thank you for your help, TB.
