1989 Nissan Skyline R32 Sedan
The R32 Skyline sedan is the perfect balance of everyday functionality and weekend fun. Its useful four door layout, peppy 2.0L straight six, manual transmission, all running to the rear wheels like a proper sports sedan. 4 door styling with all the power to back makes this an ideal candidate for a daily driver or a fully OEM platform to build off of. Finished in Nissan's Pearl White (KH6) makes it a head turner of a color choice right out of the gate. Being 29 years old it does have it's fair share of character. The front bumper does have some scuffs and stone chips from driving over the years, but nothing out of the ordinary. The rest of the body shows well however does have some standard door dents and things of that nature. Again, nothing out of the ordinary, but things you would anticipate with a 129K verified mile vehicle. The all stock Type-M aero gives this sedan it's distinctive Skyline profile. While the coupe and sedan share the exact same platform, the sedan makes day to day life a bit easier to get along with thanks to the easy access to the rear seats.
Much like the exterior, the interior has been kept all original. Overall the interior is in better shape than cars half it's age. The only real issue is the driver side bolster which has a small hole from getting in and out over the years. Otherwise the seats are in excellent condition with simply that minor wear on the drivers side bolster, the other 3 appear to have hardly been used. The door panels are in fantastic condition, as those can have some separation issues. The dash is in excellent condition with no major sun damage however does have the ever typical bubble. All of the power amenities are functioning as expected. Power windows, door locks, heated and folding mirrors, and automatic climate control. The only change up to the interior is a newer Kenwood headunit with USB and 3.5mm input. While the original steering where does show a little wear the shift knob is in shockingly good shape.
Mechanically this R32 is in fantastic condition. The RB20DET engine fires right up and idles, revs, and accelerates excellent. Shifts through the 5 speed transmission are smooth with no grinds. The clutch feels great with solid resistance, and does not slip. The all stock engine bay appears to have been well maintained over it's lifetime. The extensive timing belt/water pump service was just performed to ensure a healthy beginning here in the US. Atop that our expert technicians have gone over the car and replaced several key items. A fresh battery, new HICAS arms, two new tires up front, and a routine oil change ensure that this R32 is turn key for it's new US chapter. The factory suspension insulates well against bumps, and the steering is direct and on point so you can actually enjoy your ride home from the dealership. With their timeless good looks, accommodating interior, and performance stats to back this car really can do it all!
