The "Z32" Nissan 300ZX was sold in the United States from 1990 to 1996, and its values have never really taken off — despite many predictions that, eventually, they’ll start to rise. Indeed, nice 300ZX models from this era are still relatively common — and while values are certainly on the upswing, these just aren’t quite rare enough for collectors to get excited about. But this particular example is cooler than a normal 300ZX. See the used Nissan 300ZX models for sale near you
What you see above is a Nissan Fairlady Z, which is what the Z has usually been called in Japan. And, indeed, it’s a nice one: It’s a twin-turbocharged model, which is by far the most desirable version, and it’s a manual. It’s also right-hand drive — and that’s because this Fairlady Z has been imported from Japan. It’s also a 1989 model, from before the Z was sold in the United States — and, from the looks of things, it’s in excellent condition.
It’s no surprise that it’s in original condition, as the seller says this Z has just 26,000 original miles — not unusual to find in a well-kept car coming from Japan, as older, used cars in Japan usually become too worn for the government to allow them to pass the country’s notoriously strict safety inspection. This one is nowhere near "too worn," and the condition looks excellent, with barely-used seats and even the original stereo.
If you’re interested, this Fairlady Z is available from a private seller near Salt Lake City, and it’s offered for $18,000 — likely about what you’d spend to get a US-market 300ZX in similar shape, even though this one is far more interesting. Find a used Nissan 300ZX for sale
