VERY nice, especially in that colour. Is it missing a sticker on the inside of the hood - some I've seen with them and some without ... my own car hasn't got one. Why would some NOT have one?

You know what the real problem with that car is!? You wouldn't want to drive it!!

Or if you did you will forever worry.

I would.

Although I wouldn't say no if someone wanted to give it to me.

That's lovely and still in great condition for a car that was effectively restored 20 years ago

So that's what an OEM hatch fit looks like !

Missing the clear plastic window-winder protectors and what is that Halford's steering wheel cover doing there - hiding the 'wood' ?

In any case, as Alan would say - what is the attractiveness of a car with dumbed-down suspension and drivetrain....and you guys - the wheel is on the wrong side.

I believe they commissioned a U.K. specialist (Z Farm - now bankrupt) to restore one but not actually remake engine/body panels etc.

First time I have observed a door pull on the driver's side of a US 72 Zed.

Also, the first recommissioned Nissan Zed that I have seen come up for sale here.

Very nice.
