1991 Nissan 300ZX Z32
The Nissan Fairlady Z has always been a standout in it's own regard. Our 1991 takes everything that was great from the factory and brought things to the next level. Currently our Z32 is sitting at 119K verified miles. Right off the bat the full Border front end conversion grabs your attention. The front bumper, aero fenders, and air scoop bonnet were all designed to increase both air flow for the engine and downforce. Based on the overall condition of the Aztec Red (AG2) paint and how well it all matches we suspect that the whole car was sprayed at once. The Bomex side skirts compliment the front end well adding to the already aggressive side profile. Since naturally the stock wheels wouldn't cut it, polished 18" Advan Siena II's fill the wheel wells. The ride height has been dialed in via Tein coilovers which ride well. The body has been kept up as well as the paint shows. The fitment of all the aftermarket aero is pretty good, which can't always be said when you're dealing with FRP.
The interior of this two seater tells much the same story. Several nice upgrades that fit the vibe of the exterior's red and black color scheme. Originally the car had a full bolt in roll cage, but at some point the front half was removed for convenience. The back half is still in place and fits the race oriented exterior. To keep the driver securely in place the factory seat was exchanged for a Recaro Confetti. The seats shows well however does have a tear in the bolster from getting in and out. Luckily it looks like something that could be corrected by a proper upholstery shop. The passenger seat is in great shape, free of any notable blemishes. For more control over things the Momo Commando wheel and a Razo shift knob that fits great in the hand. To keep an eye on boost levels a Greedy boost gauge was fitted atop the steering column. Otherwise all of the power accessories have been retained, power windows, door locks, even cruise control. The automatic climate control is functioning properly however the A/C compressor does not seem to be turning on.
Under the vented hood we have a plethora of goodies. To make the most out of the large front bumper opening a huge Border front mount was installed. Behind the bumper is a matching Border intake box to help keep everything cool. A full hard piping kit has been retrofitted with upgraded Samco hoses and couplers. Tucked in place of the factory driver side mount intercooler is a Trust oil cooler. The ECU has been chipped in order to make the most of the VG30DETT's bolt ons. To make sure that all the power is safely transferred through the transmission the clutch has been upgraded to a beefier Nismo multi plate. On the flip side when you need to reel things in up front are a set of R33 GTR Brembo calipers. A nice set of Carbing front and rear strut tower braces help to keep the chassis tied tied together when the road gets twisty. The VG fires right up and pulls hard with all of the aftermarket bits supporting it. The upgraded clutch is noticeably heavier than stock, however it doesn't feel like you're trying to move a pile of bricks every time you step on the pedal. While there's no end to what can be done to the Z32, this car really has checked all of the key boxes. Aero unlike anything on the road, power to back up the looks, and a cockpit that brings it all together. This car really is the whole package and can be driven home today!
