1987 300ZX - incredible paint job with modern wheels - $6000

Posted it on CL as well and you can find more pictures there.

I am second owner, the first owner was my uncle. Still have original manual and original window sticker.

Only 109K miles. My uncle didn't drive it much but it was my daily driver for 5 years, it hasn't driven much in the last 5 years but kept in garage and cranked up occasionally and driven around our driveway.
Exceptional paint job - seriously top notch paint
Many new parts:
-fuel injectors replaced by dealership - this was done as part of an old recall that was previously never done on that car. The dealership also replaced the water pump and timing belt.
-water pump
-timing belt
-K&N filter
-spark plugs
-ignition wires
-crank angle sensor
-ignition coil
-Have new brake pads in the box in the back of the car but current ones still have some life in them
*All replaced within last 15-30K miles
Alpine head unit
New speakers
18" TSW wheels
Falken Tires
Brake calipers coated red
No cracks in dash
Good MPG: 20-21
Power seats, power windows, power side mirrors all work.

*These things were replaced this weekend - front and rear wipers. Hood and rear hatch struts.

(I will just be blunt about all the problems for the sake of being honest and full disclosure to buyer)

-The clutch is very 'grabby,' more so than an OEM clutch. It just takes a little getting use to if you have never driven a similar one
-The fuel gauges doesn't work (I just use the tripometer and get gas every 300-350 miles
-Bottom portion of leather seats cracked/torn(driver seat is bad, passenger seat is in OK shape)
Oil pressure gauge doesn't work
-windshield wiper fluid light always on no matter how much fluid it has
-engine 'sensor' light won't go off even though the ECU reports no problems
The engine will leak a few drops of oil if it sits for a few hrs
-when a shop replaced the clutch, the rear main seal must not have sealed 100%
-tires will need to be replaced soon

*My honest recommendation would be to change the clutch soon to put in a more driveable clutch, the rear main seal will be changed during this process so you will also eliminate any oil drips in your driveway.

Its a pretty terrible video but you can hear start up and see some of the interior

Car looks amazing and runs great. In the 6 years I drove it everyday, it has only not started 3 times(fuse, alternator and crank angle sensor were the 3 problems).

Shoot me an email with questions. Cash only. The car is in McDonough at a family members house so the car will only be available on a limited basis for showings.
