1990 R32 Skyline GTS-T
Available for: $28,995
In this day and age, R32 Skylines don't seem to come around too often, let alone in this condition. Our 1990 Skyline GTS-T has all the options to make any enthusiast swoon, and is a turn-key head turner no matter which way you look at it. This factory Dark Blue Metallic (TH1) car has a lot going for it aesthetically. A factory Aero front bumper paired with a Crazy Hornet front lip sets the front fascia off, and the rear dons a sleek low rise rear wing. With Silver's coilovers dropping the chassis to an acceptable height and GTR alloys on all four corners, this R32 has looks that kill, and is offered up with an impressive 105k verified miles on the clock. Ask any Nissan fan and they're sure to agree, the R32 GTS-T is a timeless Japanese Classic that only gets better with age!
Much like the exterior, the interior is intuitively designed, built to last, and was clearly well cared for in a prior life. The factory upholstery has remained in great condition over the years, and the striped cloth bucket seats show no discernible damage outside of some light wear on the driver's bolster. The front door cards have been upholstered in a one-off blue suede, and the rest of the materials show well to boot, from the rear bench to the headliner. Like most R32's, the dash has succumbed to some typical age-related bubbling atop the passenger glove box area, which is nothing to turn your nose up at, as the rest of the dash is still in good nick. The center stack frames upgraded Pioneer audio, with Bluetooth functionality should you prefer your own tunes over the turbo-six soundtrack. Positioned above, the digital automatic climate control is easy to use and cycles between Cold A/C and hot heat at the push of a button. For some added driver accessibility, a quick release Nardi steering wheel can be removed for some extra security, and aftermarket boost and oil pressure gauges sit atop the steering column to monitor the RB20's performance under the bonnet. Power windows, power mirrors, and power locks work like a charm, and should assist any pilot looking to use this one for day-to-day activities, although we do want to mention the mirrors power folding feature has given up the ghost. The carpets are protected by a set of aftermarket floor mats, and overall we're really impressed with the condition of this cockpit, making it one of the nicer examples we've seen in recent memory.
The powerhouse RB20DET is a perfect mate for this chassis, and ours is fresh off a recent service boasting some premium upgrades to make the drive plenty rewarding for the eager next owner. It cranks over swiftly, care of a new 12v battery, and a new alternator was installed to ensure reliable operation for the road ahead. An AEM fuel pump and new fuel filter keep your 93 octane flowing, and new spark plugs were installed across the board for a bit of a tune up. An HKS intake feeds an upgraded rb25 turbocharger, and a Blitz front mount intercooler helps keep charge temperatures down as you zip this one up to speed. Under throttle, this RB produces all the right noises thanks to a full turbo-back exhaust system, and shifts through the 5 speed gearbox are just as good, with no unwanted grinds to be found. Adjustable upper control arms help dial in the alignment for more accurate handling, and we've replaced the left front inner tie rod and right rear HICAS arm to further shore up the drivetrain. The brakes bite hard when called upon, and the power steering is light and easy to maneuver around town. The coilovers deliver a comfortable ride while adding only a bit more stiffness over bumps, and the GTR alloys are wrapped in good summer tires, sure to deliver plenty of grip for the road ahead!
