Paul Newman’s 1979 Datsun 280ZX Race Car

Oct 9, 2018

Category: Rides

With Paul Newman’s fingerprints all over it, this 1979 Datsun 280ZX is your chance to own a piece of history. And yes, in case you’re wondering, Mr. Newman himself both raced and won a series of events during that year in this very car — even setting a new lap record a few times. Now, it’s up for sale.

Both fully documented and hosting a full nut and bolt restoration, this is one fine piece of history that still includes a handful of spare parts to go with the sale, including extra body and engine parts, the original wheels, and a handful of memorabilia — not limited to original bill of sale, and the Datsun’s original chassis firewall complete with the original #100026 stamping. Could be a solid investment considering his Rolex Daytona watch recently sold for $17.8 million. Pricing available upon request.
