Is this 300 genuine 98?

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow ZedHeads. Came across a 300zx for sale on gumtree (or scumtree as some would call it), ad claims it's 1998 but don't they have the later style bumper. Also mileage of 38000, can this be taken seriously considering the age, origin and price. Opinions, worth a look?

They started fitting the 99 spec bumper in October 98


With a different spoiler/no spoiler.


QNO (pearl white) was painted on post 94 cars (series 3). This has blue tint glass which I think replaced the bronze tint on all series 4 models. There's no reason why this shouldn't be a 98 car as series 5 was built for most of that calender year, it was only late 98 that the 99 model year (series 6) was put into production. But without seeing the VIN and interior, it's hard to tell. Series 5 cars came with 99-spec style switchgear too (toggle style electric window switches. If it is a series 5, it would have a date of manufacture sometime in early 97 to the middle to back end of 98. The e/w switches would be the giveaway. If it didn't have those, it's likely it's a series 4.


I'd say that car is an absolute bargain! The first thing I'd do however would be to remove those horrible ebay tail lights and fit some OEM clear front indicator lenses and 99 spec tail lights..
