5 Low Mileage Used Nissan Z Cars For Sale on Autotrader

With all of the Nissan Z-car hype stemming from the recent reveal of the Nissan Z Proto concept, you may find yourself intrigued by the thought of owning an old Nissan Z yourself.  We’re here to help scratch that itch, and here we’ve identified five used Zs currently for sale on Autotrader.

1982 Datsun 280ZX – $19,800

If you’re looking for a first-generation Z, otherwise known as the Datsun 240Z, you’ll have to head over to Autotrader Classics.  There are plenty examples of the second-generation Z, known as the 280ZX, on the main site though, and this one comes with just 25,603 miles on the odometer.  While a manual transmission was offered, there aren’t a ton of manual 280ZXs for sale on Autotrader, and this one uses a three-speed automatic mated to a 2.8-liter inline six-cylinder engine.  It does come with the Z’s iconic T-tops though, and its red velvet interior is certainly a testament to the era.  Located at a dealer in Miami, FL, this low-mileage classic Datsun 280ZX comes with an asking price of $19,800.

1984 Datsun 300ZX – $18,500

The 300ZX was offered from 1984 through 1989.  For the 1984 model year, the 300ZX wore both Nissan and Datsun badges on the tailgate; starting with the 1985 model year, the Datsun badge was dropped as Nissan standardized its branding across the world.  The 300ZX adopted a new V6 engine, which was a big deal as Japanese automakers had relied primarily on inline-six cylinder engines up to that point.  Altogether, a number of engines were offered in the 300ZX, several of which were turbocharged.  This one, a 1984 example with just 23,984 miles on the odometer, comes with a turbocharged V6 mated to a five-speed manual transmission.  It’s offered by a private seller in Babylon, NY with an asking price of $18,500.

1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo – $29,995

As far as Nissan Z cars go, the second iteration of the 300ZX, known as the ‘Z32’ and sold new from the 1990 through 1996 model years here in the US, is arguably the most desirable used Z at the moment. Blame its wedge-shaped design and rad-certified 1990s design.  The Z32 300ZX was available in four different forms.  There was a basic two-seater, a twin-turbo two-seater, a convertible two-seater, and an extended-wheelbase 2+2 model, which allowed you to carry two additional passengers.  This one is a Twin Turbo model from the 1990 model year.  With just 30,098 miles on the odometer, it’s likely one of the lowest-mileage Z32 300ZXs left in existence.  It’s offered by a dealer in Edmonds, WA with an asking price of $29,995.

2003 Nissan 350Z Track – $17,000

Now we’re getting into the modern Nissan Z cars.  After discontinuing the 300ZX in the US after the 1996 model year, Nissan returned to the sports car world with the introduction of the 2003 350Z.  Production of a coupe model would take place from 2003 through 2008, with a convertible model joining for 2004.  All examples packed a 3.5-liter V6 mated to either a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic.  The one we’ve highlighted is a 2003 Track model, which gained unique, lightweight wheels and Brembo brakes.  It’s offered by a private seller in Crosswicks, NJ with 49,000 miles on the odometer and an asking price of $17,000.

2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO – $31,000

The 370Z was the successor to the 350Z. It was introduced for the 2009 model year and is still offered today, making it one of the oldest vehicle designs to be sold as new today. Unlike the new 400Z, which will utilize many components from the 370Z, including the vehicle’s entire platform, very few 350Z components carried over to the 370Z. Every example packs a 3.7-liter V6 engine mated to either a six-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic. Both coupe and convertible versions were again offered. The 370Z’s top performance trim is the NISMO model, which comes exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission with rev-matching, stiffer springs and stablizer bars, 19-in wheels, and upgraded brakes. The one we’ve highlighted here is a 2015 370Z NISMO, which received some additional updates, like a new navigation system. It’s offered by a private seller in Lawrence, KS with an asking price of $31,000; which is pretty reasonable when you consider that it comes with only 4,500 miles on the odometer.
