1978 DATSUN 280Z BLACK PEARL LIMITED EDITION for sale. Motorcar Classics is proud to present this very rare and collectible 1978 Datsun 280Z. To honor the tenth anniversary of the Z-Car series, and to determine if the color black should be added to the Z-car model line colors, Datsun made a limited run called the Black Pearl Edition. Like the car we feature, some of these Black Pearl Editions came with a Sports Appearance Package that included the following options: Black Pearl Metallic Paint Paint Code 638, Red & Silver Accent Stripes On:Body-side, Hood, Hatch, Headlight Scoops, Rear Window Sunshade, Dual Racing Mirrors.

It is reported that at least one Black Pearl Edition with the "Sports Appearance Package" was sent to each Authorized Datsun Dealer in 1978, with the larger volume Dealers receiving more than one. Thus at least 850 Black Pearl Editions were manufactured. The cars were so successful that in 1979 with the introduction of the 280ZX Datsun featured their all Black 280ZX's in their "Black Gold" advertising campaign. Our car is stunningly correct right down to the proper factory wheels. Our car has only 12,744 1-owner miles and has a fresh show-quality repaint. It includes the optional AC and automatic transmission. It is a delight to drive.
