1989 Nissan 300ZX
Zoom icon


Originally introduced in 1983 for the 1984 model year, the Nissan 300ZX was intended to be a replacement for the venerable Nissan 280. Though it had big shoes to fill, the 300ZX sure did fill them! An instant hit across many areas of the target market, 300ZXs are both affordable and fun even today. The second generation (Z32), like this 1989 you see here, broke from the traditional Nissan styling to ring in the 1990s as a whole new car. The Z32 became a hit with enthusiasts, and while it may be a far cry from a 280Z, the Z32 300ZX is a modern JDM classic.

This 1989 Nissan 300ZX for sale may look just like the USDM 1990 model, which is because it basically is. This car is a Japan Domestic Model import (yes, from Japan!) and in Japan, this vehicle was titled based off of the year of manufacture (1989) rather than the model year (1990). You're probably trying to remember the last time you saw a Z32 300ZX this clean! Unless you are or know a collector, it may have been a while. Though this car has some light (and easily reversible) modifications, it has covered a mere 42,240 miles (67,979km according to the odometer). The overall condition of the car speaks to this being actual and correct mileage. The exterior of this Nissan is very clean, straight, and free of any major damage. A period correct body kit was installed at some point in the past, as well as aftermarket 16” wheels and aftermarket exhaust. This is a subtle vehicle, customized to turn heads without drawing a crowd. Looking to drive something unique but fly under the radar? This just may be the JDM classic for you.

Step inside, and you'll immediately notice that you've gotten into the wrong side of this car. Since it was originally sold for the Japanese market, it is right-hand drive (RHD)! This is a fun, quirky feature of this car (and anything JDM) that is a sure conversation starter. Driving this 300ZX is quite the experience if you are used to LHD vehicles! The interior is in excellent condition, with only a couple of minor changes including an NRG neochrome steering wheel, a modern radio, and pink rear side panels. Should you want a vehicle to revert back to neaerly stock, this is a largely unmolested car and the interior could be completely reverted in an afternoon. The reason for the radio change is due to the fact that Japanese radios do not pick up the full range of US frequencies. The seats, carpet, and plastics are all in excellent condition and this car is very much a time capsule back to the 1990s!

Under the hood, you'll find the crown jewel: the twin-turbo 3.0L V6! This is the VG30DETT, the preferred power plant of choice in these vehicles by enthusiasts. This 1989 Nissan 300ZX specs continue as the VG30 is hooked up to a 4-speed automatic transmission, and this puppy sure does scoot! For some drivers, the automatic will be preferable in conjunction with the RHD aspect of this car as it makes it easier to adjust to being reverse of the usual driving position.

As a whole, this 1989 Nissan 300ZX turbo is in excellent condition as can be expected for a 42,000 mile vehicle. There are so many neat features on this car, you'd just about have to see it in person to really appreciate it! Twin-turbo V6, RHD, JDM, RWD….what's not to like?? It is incredibly clean, both inside and out, and could easily be taken to the next level as a JDM classic.

Dealership is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by third parties. The majority of these vehicles are considered classics or antiques, meaning they are older vehicles with sometimes dated automotive technology. We are not an expert in the construction, engineering, finishes, materials or components of these vehicles.

Dealership assumes no responsibility for any repairs needed to the vehicle and it's the buyers sole responsibility for any repairs that might be needed.

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such. Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

Because we advertise each vehicle with so many third-party affiliates, it is the customer's sole responsibility to verify the accuracy of the price with the dealer. All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle.

Our preferred and most secure form of payment is a bank wire transfer. We can accept checks, but note that any form of a check will have a minimum hold of 10 business days. This includes cashier's checks, certified checks, or bank checks of any kind. For cash received in the amount of $10,000 or more, we will complete an IRS Form 8300. We can not accept any credit card as payment or partial payment for a vehicle under any circumstance.
