1991 Nissan R32 GTS-4
One of the rarest Skyline models we see, this 1991 GTS-4 could be your year-round cruiser if you need the surefootedness of all-wheel drive. Finished in a stunning Black Pearl Metallic (732), this lightly modified, turbocharged coupe is fresh off a recent service and offered with a mere 140k verified and documented miles. Aside from a few light scuffs, dings, and chips, the body and paint are in good nick and this sporty Nissan does more than turn a few heads. Collectible, rewarding to drive, and easy to work on this R32 is a certified Japanese Classic that won't last long.
As one enters the cabin, they are greeted by the soft gray upholstered seats. Although the driver seat bottom does have a tear in it the rest of the cloth is in good condition, and this Skyline is comfortable on longer drives. The dashboard does have a bubble on the passenger side, and a couple of cracks/chips around the cluster meeting the dashboard, but this is commonplace for the model. Other than those few issues on the dashboard it has not faded from any UV damage or curling at the windshield. The automatic digital climate control allows the interior to be cooled with A/C or warmed with hot heat. A Sparco steering wheel and Tomei shift knob look at home and are effective updates. The door cards are lacking any scuffs or tears, and are in good condition along with the headliner which is not sagging, and lacks major stains or tears. Power windows, power locks, and electric folding mirrors are all in working order and easy to use. The dark privacy tint looks subtle and protects the interior plastics against the harsh rays of the sun.
Mechanically, this RB20DET-powered coupe is a good one. It features a silky smooth straight-six engine, that is fresh off an oil and filter service. It starts up promptly with a twist of the key, thanks to a new 12v battery. The six idles with hardly any vibration and sounds fantastic thanks to a free-flowing FGK catback exhaust and M's intake. One of our trained techs has given the 2.0L a healthy refresh and installed a new valve cover gasket, fresh plugs, and a new fuel filter. We even replaced the fuel lines for good measure and the RB runs flawlessly now. It's connected to a close-ratio five-speed manual gearbox and ATESSA all-wheel drive. A short shifter improves the transmission's feel and the Skyline accelerates impressively for a 25-year-old ride. It also stops in a hurry thanks to new brake pads and rotors at all four corners. Handling is flat and responsive as we have replaced the tired dampers with a new set of Fortune Auto coilovers. They reduce the fender gap too, improving the aesthetic. Lastly, we installed four brand new tires. The new rubber quiets down the ride noticeably and will last for tens of thousands of miles to come.
