1990 Nissan Fairlady Z32
We just got in this awesome cruiser of a Z32 with only 47K miles. Finished in Nissan's awesome Charcoal Pearl Metallic (KH2) it definitely looks like a proper sports coupe. The exterior has been kept mostly factory but with a few nice touches. The Greddy front end is definitely one of the most popular front ends on the market for this car and there's no doubt about why. A set of hyper white fog lights fill the bumper out nicely. The bumper itself is in pretty good shape but does have some scrapes on the lower portion due to the low ground clearance. A fantastic set of staggered Gold 17" Rays Gram Light Wheels really pop off the Charcoal body. The wheels themselves are in excellent shape and are a nice touch. It looks like the factory mudguards were removed before being shipped over as the outline can still be seen on the lower rocker panel. It also appears that this one was originally equipped with the factory wing that was removed as well. The holes were filled and painted properly however at the right angle you can see the outline. The body itself has been kept in pretty great shape. There are two spots on the passenger side where something got a little too close. One is at the very bottom of the rocker panel and the other above it just below the hatch. There's also a small dimple on the hood just above the passenger headlight that can be seen in the pictures. The rest of the vehicle has been well maintained and is free of any notable dents or dings.
the interior has been kept mostly all original with only a few simple additions. The steering wheel was replaced with a great Momo wheel and a set of stainless steel Razo pedal covers. The factory radio has been upgraded to a simple Kenwood RX-580CD. The Fairlady also has had an aftermarket remote start installed that is functional. Other accessories include power folding mirrors, windows, driver seat, cruise control, and automatic climate control. The A/C blows nice and cold! Even the original floor mats, sun shades, and T Top bags are still present in the trunk. The interior has been well maintained with only minor flaws. There is a small tear in the driver side bolster and stain on the passenger seat that can be seen in the pictures. The dash is bubble and crack free which is common to see on cars from this era. The long door panels are also in great shape which can be a problem area.
Mechanically the Z32 is great platform with the VG30DE being a notorious motor. The VG fires right up and idles smoothly. Even being the NA the 3.0 V6 makes good torque down low and pulls hard through the rev range. The Kakimoto Racing exhaust sounds awesome under load, especially with the windows down and the tops out. The transmission shifts in out out of gear with ease and drama free. Nissan also equipped this with one of the first versions of a SMG gearbox. It's a clever little feature, but with the "hold" button engaged you can select and hold a gear. It also has a "power" feature for quicker shifts when you're not looking to do things manually. Conveniently this one also comes without the HICAS 4 wheel steering which is typically one of the first things people remove. This is a great little car for someone looking for a good touring sports car without all the headaches. Plus the aftermarket is swimming with parts for making this car your own.
