1989 Nissan Skyline R32 GTS-T
Fresh into inventory is this great example of a Series 1 Type-M. 1989 was the first year of the legendary R32 and this one only has 82K miles on it. Finished in one of the most instantly recognizable colors; Black Pearl Metallic (732.) The full Type-M aero really sets an aggressive tone, which is even more impressive considering it's all factory trim. The paint has a deep luster, and in the sunlight the metallic really pops. The body has been kept up equally well with no notable dents or dings. Then again with only 82K miles it should come as no surprise. This particular one has been kept all stock which is an impressive feat these days.
The interior has been kept up just as well as the exterior. It does show some routine wear on the original steering wheel and shift knob, but with no shortage of aftermarket options available it would be a easy refresh. We're pleased to say that one of the most common wear items is still in great shape, the driver side seat. There's no traditional bolster wear, rips, stains, etc. The passenger and rear seats are only in better shape. The dash is very clean although it does have the ever common dash bubble. All of the factory power accessories are working as they should; the windows, power mirrors, original radio, and automatic climate control.
Mechanically the RB20DET is in excellent condition. It starts quickly, idles smooth, and feels fantastic under boost. The turbo spools up quickly and pulls hard to redline. The 5 speed transmission shifts very well and has no grinds and the clutch engages perfectly. The only change up that's been made is the addition of an awesome Kakimoto Racing catback exhaust. It gives a nice deep tone on startup but since it retains the cat there's no obnoxious drone at highway speeds. The factory suspension on these feel excellent and handle great while still having a comfortable ride for cruising. Between the instantly recognizable looks and power to back the Skyline really is the complete package.
