    I've been looking at this car that I fount. Its a 1983 Nissan Datsun with a Turbo. Its got 120,000 miles on it and drives great. Its got a rip in the seat (which can be fixed), and a small tear in the side of the door (which can also be fixed).

    I was wondering how much you think this car is worth? I tried kbb.com but they dont go back that far in years. The guy wants $2500 for it. This is the first year this car came out also (from what he said)

    is it a 300 or 240? You might be better off in the import section. many don't consider a nissan/datsun american muscle

    If it's a 240 Z-Motor, then it's indestructable. check it over to make sure it's in good shape, and it'll go forever.

    True edmunds.com TMV. I think they go back much farther in years.

    Should be a 280ZX most likely. The 300ZX started in 84 and I dont think there was any other Nissan Datsun at that time with a turbo.

    If he wants $2500 for it, it better be in very, very good shape. As far as the turbo model goes, it first appeared in 1981 with strictly an automatic tranny. 1982 and 1983 were the only years with the 5speed.

    I owned a 1983 Turbo 5 speed for 9 years, it was a fun little car and very dependable. Be sure you check for rust around the tail lights and frame rails!
