Hey guys, new here. I just bought a 1977 280z with a 5 speed transmission, cruise control, AC, and it came with mirrors on both sides of the vehicle. I thought they only came on the driver side. The car was originally a gold color, but someone got a cheap-o paint job. Interior is in decent condition. All of the parts are there. It came with a front and rear bushing rebuild kit. The complete engine w/ computer, transmission, and possibly a couple other things are for sell (check the classified section). It turns over and everything, but had a bad ignition module. The plan is to ls1 swap the car with a t56 transmission. (I know some of you purist may crucify my for it lol)

One or two mirrors

Cheers on the new car and welcome to the forums !

Funny, I always thought the opposite, 2 mirrors is standard, but then I got a 280zx with a single mirror. Seems lop sided for some reason. I did buy a mirror from Jamal (electric, which my drivers mirror isn't), that guy has more parts than he knows what to do with.
