1991 Nissan Laurel Medalist
Pending Sale: $6,995
When it comes to searching for either a daily driver or a project car the most import consideration is condition. If you start with a nice car, you'll end up with a nice car and it's a lot easier to do it that way. This Nissan Laurel is one of the nicest cars you could ask for, whether it be a comfortable unique daily driver, or the start of a very cool build you can't go wrong with this car. The Nissan Laurel is essentially a four door S13 with an R32 drive train. All of the suspension is the same as the S-Chassis (240sx, Silvia, 180sx), while the RB20 drive train is borrowed from the R32. These factors make the Laurel an appealing car to modify and extremely easy to get parts for. This 1991 facelift model is in superb condition inside and out. The factory Charcoal Pearl Metallic (KH2) paint which is commonly found on R32's looks exceptionally well on the C33 Laurel and is an uncommon color. The paint itself is in great original condition with no major issues and only a small scuff on the bottom on the front bumper on the passenger side. The exterior remains completely unmodified and includes desirable kouki tail lights with clear turn signals.
The interior is likely the best Laurel interior we have seen. The desirable grey suede seats and accents are in great condition. The driver seats shows some minor wear but otherwise the remaining seating is excellent. The door panel fabric inserts are in beautiful condition and is not sagging which is a common issue with Laurels. The dash shows no major sun damage and the fabric insert is not sagging. The only real notable condition issue in the interior is the wood trim is starting to peal off on the shifter surround. This could easily be replaced or removed down the line. Overall this is likely one of the nicest Laurel interiors you will ever see!
Mechanically this 25K original mile Laurel is tip top. The RB20E engine runs smoothly and while it won't win many races it will last forever and is easily transplanted by its turbo charged twin cam brother the RB20DET if you desired to. The automatic transmission shifts happily through the gears and is a very comfortable driving car. Recent maintenance includes: a new battery, new air filter, four new tires, a four wheel alignment, and a fresh oil change to ensure you will receive a vehicle with up to date maintenance. Whether you are looking for a low mileage unique daily driver, or your next show car build this Laurel can handle it!
