Classic Car Auctions says:

A direct descendant of the Datsun 240Z, the 280ZX Targa, produced from 1978 to 1983, carried on the long bonnet silhouette but added a little more practicality and comfort.
Three years ago, the current owner stripped the car replaced all the sub-standard panels and gave RSF 300Y a fresh coat of Mint White paint. Described as an "ongoing project," many parts have been replaced over the years. Most recently the car has benefited from a new starter motor, alternator, radiator, and coil. This classic, early eighties coupé is worth a good look.
