Chatsworth, California, United States

Up for auction is a 1980 Datsun 280zx 10th anniversary edition ID #310 of 3000 made. I purchased the car in August of 2005 and have done some mechanical work. Car runs and handles very well and looks good. The two tone red/black paint and the gold/black pinstripe really set off this car. There were only 500 made of this anniversary color design. It is rarer than its counterpart anniversary color scheme of gold and black. It has 52964 original miles. All the following has been replaced or repaired: new brakes, new water pump, tint window, NOS coin holder, A/C-works well and is cold, New set of 4 tires, New Gold front Emblem-NOS , Side Fender Sticker Decals-NOS, Rebuild Manifold, New Front Floor Mats, Tool Kit-Used, NOS Dash Duct Sides, Fuel Injection completely cleaned and gone through, New top front dash skin, NOS gas cap ,


The car was repainted at some point in time before I purchased it. There are a few small body "bubbles" that I took pictures of that I believe are small rust spots underneath. That is all I see of any rust. There is surface rust under the chassis which is expected for a car of this age. The dash has some cracks in it which is why I have a new dash top that I never have put on. I also have NOS side dash vent ducts in red which are very hard to find. I have only seen one pair ever on ebay and I bought them for a big price but it will look great once the dash is replaced. The car has seen some sun. There is some fading on the top part of the door panels and in the hatch areas as shown, but neither are ripped or torn. Seats are in clean shape. The rear hatchback carpet is a bit dried. Power steering , power brakes, and power windows all work find. The cruise control light goes on but does not engage. The radio works but there is static obviously the antenna is busted so I canít hear much on the radio. I never tried the cassette but I will say it doesnít work unless I try before I place this listing. All the gauges work except for the gas tank. There seems to be some intermittence problem as sometimes it will work and then quit and then go back to working. I just fill up after every couple hundred miles. Have never removed the t-tops but the drivers side inside molding has broken on the right side towards the visor as shown in the pix. There are a couple of fine line cracks in the driverís side t-tops. There are also some fine circular scratches from the car wash on the hood as also shown in the pictures. The alloy wheels have some pitting in them. Car passed smog with out a problem late in 2009. The car is registered with current tags. Last time I checked, all the tail lights, brake lights and headlights work. Car is complete with nothing missing that I know of except for the 280zx emblem on the front fenders. I have some real nice ones but the back steams have been broken off. There are also clear plastic covers over the recessed headlights. I recently bought a nicer passenger side door handle, a passenger side door handle grip, and NOS door window switch bezels.

Datsun's lackluster initial sales fall below Tata Nano

Wed, 15 Oct 2014

When Tata introduced the Nano back in 2008, everyone was amazed at how cheap it was. They called it a game changer, but no game was changed. In fact, it took Tata five years to sell the 250,000 units it had the capacity to build in a single year. As it turns out, even buyers in what economists call "developing markets" like India aren't necessarily interested in buying an ultra-cheap automobile. And now it appears that Nissan may be falling into the same trap.
A little over a year ago, Nissan revived its old moniker Datsun to serve as a budget brand - similar to what ally Renault did with Dacia. Its lineup (consisting of models like the Go hatchback, Go+ minivan, On-Do sedan and Mi-Do hatch) is largely based on old architecture, packaged with little more than basic equipment and sold at rock-bottom prices. But Bloomberg reports that, even in the brand's core markets like India and Indonesia, the new Datsuns haven't been selling.
According to local industry figures, Datsun has sold fewer than 10,000 units of its $5,100 Go hatchbacks in India since its introduction back in March. Maruti Suzuki, by comparison, sells twice that many of its similarly priced Alto hatchbacks every month. In fact, after peaking in April, Datsun only sold 607 units in India this past July, dipping 77 percent to drop below even the number of Nanos which Tata sold that month.

Datsun expands low-cost revival with new Mi-Do in Moscow [w/video]

Fri, 29 Aug 2014

Those who were disappointed when Datsun changed its name to Nissan over three decades ago may have been pleased to see the marque revived last year, even as a budget brand. Nissan's counterpart to its ally Renault's Dacia budget brand, Datsun has been steadily expanding its lineup of low-cost transportation for developing markets with the debut of the Go hatchback in India, the Go+ minivan in Indonesia and the On-Do sedan in Russia. And now it has returned to Moscow to reveal its fourth model, the Mi-Do.
Based closely on the On-Do sedan (which itself is based on the Lada Granta) the Mi-Do takes on a five-door hatchback bodystyle but with no more frills. It uses the same front-drive chassis with the same wheelbase as the sedan, but its chopped tail makes it a good foot and a half shorter overall. Into that compact shape, Datsun has fitted dual airbags, ABS and... well, that's about it. It's got a 1.6-liter, eight-valve inline-four kicking out a grand total of 87 horsepower to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. Bare bones, this is.
While delivery of the first On-Do sedans commences next month (with the first example going to an IT specialist in Omsk), the Mi-Do is set to begin delivery early next year. Scope out the video and press release below from the Mi-Do's reveal at the Moscow Motor Show.

Fiat contemplating sub-brand to compete with Dacia, Datsun

Tue, 05 Feb 2013

You can add Fiat to the admittedly short list of automakers considering a low-cost brand to rival Dacia. The inexpensive Eastern European brand from Renault-Nissan has performed on the balance sheet like a premium model line, and the money the alliance is taking off the table is encouraging other players to deal themselves in. Pretty soon Nissan's Datsun sub-brand will join the Dacia party, going on sale in Russia, Indonesia and India and will claim even more rubles, rupiahs and rupees for the parent company. Volkswagen recently said it will make a decision this year on a budget line for the Chinese market. With the euthanasia of Lancia and plans to move the Fiat brand upmarket, company CEO Sergio Marchionne wonders aloud to Automotive News Europe whether there could be room for a new budget brand underneath Fiat.
We're told that the initiative has been in the idea box for five years and even moved to the stage of name considerations, like Innocenti, but worries about profit kept it from realization. If such a range were to be developed, Marchionne says it couldn't be built in Italy and stay within budget, and the company is "analyzing its manufacturing capacity outside of Europe to see if a low-cost brand is viable."
