During a trip to Canada and the USA I came across this 280Z in Vancouver, Washington, USA. It was in such good condition and I had to have it. I imported it to Australia through USAtoAUS import company.
Once it arrived in Australia I spent many many hours stripping the paint to bare metal. To my suprise there was very minimal rust. The original colour was burgundy.
Afterwards I handed it over to RestoPros in Hanwood NSW to finish the restoration. They did an exceptional job and I spent tens of thousands of dollars with them to bring it up to the amazing condition it is in now.
It has been in storage awaiting club rego, however I have decided to part ways with it. In the two years that I have undertaken this project, I have married and have a baby on the way. I would much prefer to spend the money on my new born, wife and new home.

Most suited for club rego - only requires pink slip and club inspection. If you want it on full rego it will require an engineers certificate (On purchase of this car you will receive all the import documentation required for rego).

It is currently in Gosford NSW
