1989 Nissan Skyline GTS-T Type-M
This timeless R32 coupe is an accessible, US legal, turn key sports car. Instead of going to see one at a museum, why not simply own one!
Type-M has been well maintained over the years. The projection headlamps, rear spats, and side skirts all add to the distinctive looks of the 2 door model. Finished in one of the most popular colors; Pearl Black Metallic (732) the paint shows little signs of wear. The body has been kept up equally well; no notable dents, scratches, or scuffs are present. The five spoke silver alloy wheels are sporting a new set of four tires.
The interior has been nicely maintained with little signs of wear. Updates come compliment from a Recaro reclinable drivers seat, and updated head unit with aux and USB functions. The air conditioning blows cold, and the digital climate systems works properly. Both the seats and carpeting are free of any notable stains, with only the drivers side right bolster having a small tear. The rear passenger seats look rarely used, as with most of the coupes. The R32 had several power amenities standard such as window, mirrors, and door locks, all of which are in order. Under the hood is the zingy and rugged RB20DET straight six. With only 82K verified miles, this smooth engine has plenty of life left in it. The unmodified two liter fires right up, with the help of a new battery, and quietly idles along. The Skyline's six cylinder provides plenty of power without being overly aggressive for daily duties. The exhaust does have an ever so slightly deeper thrum, coming from a 3 inch Fujitsubo exhaust. The power band is linear and pulls hard to redline. The turbo charger whooshes to life, providing a sporty soundtrack to those in the cockpit. The 5 speed transmission shifts well with out any grinds and the clutch engages with ease. The shifter is particularly crisp and feels well connected. All corners of the suspension are well sorted, the chassis feels confident in the turns without having to sacrifice ride quality. The car stops quickly, thanks in part to new brakes out back.
This legally imported, classic coupe is a guaranteed way to put a smile on any enthusiasts face. Its forgiving, playful chassis, and impressive build quality make this an awesome automotive option for a multitude of reasons. Own a Japanese Classic today!
