Here’s something you don’t see everyday: a nicely-kept and super-rare example of the Z31 generation Z-car in convertible guise. Never offered by the factory, the conversion was completed by Straman Coachworks in Orange County for a cost of about $8000, and I must say it really transforms the looks.
Offered on craigslist HERE by a private seller in Phoenix, this convertible Z also features a manual gearbox mated to the VG-series turbocharged V6 putting out about 200 hp. It won’t be a drag race champ, but the combo should be plenty to achieve an enjoyably brisk pace, especially with the top down.
For about ten grand, the car is not much more expensive than an equally-nice 300ZX coupe. But it sure is a lot more interesting.
