1989 Nissan Laurel
This 1989 Nissan Laurel has been lightly modified and currently has 95k original miles. The exterior has received a color change from White Pearl Two-Tone (2J9) to a solid true white. The paint overall is in nice condition and free of severe blemishes. Likewise, the body is in good shape with no major dents or dings. Other noteworthy features include an OEM optional front lip, aftermarket side skirts, and aftermarket 16” wheels.
Inside the vehicle you’ll find a bolt-in roll cage which helps add chassis rigidity in lieu of the B-pillars. The cage has not been welded in, so it could be easily removed if desired. Other changes include an R34 GTT driver seat, Tanida steering wheel, Blitz boost gauge, and manually-operated exhaust baffle. The seats and door panels have some light wear but are free of major rips and tears. The dash has some minor imperfections but is in well above average condition for a C33 Laurel.
The RB20DET starts right away, idles properly, and accelerates without hesitation. Shifts through the 5 speed manual transmission are smooth and the clutch does not slip when transferring power to the aftermarket limited slip differential. The exhaust has been upgraded via a 3” downpipe which feeds into a 3” straight through exhaust before exiting through dual blast pipes. The exhaust is significantly louder than stock, but can be quieted down by operating the exhaust baffle inside the cabin. A number of suspension upgrades have been made as well which include aftermarket coilovers, inner/outer tie rods, tension arms, adjustable toe arms, and NISMO rear lower control arms. Overall this Laurel is very fun and enjoyable to drive.
