1991 Nissan Skyline GTS-T
The R32 Skyline is a fantastic driver's car. It's hard not to fall in love with the balanced handling, punchy acceleration, and iconic looks. This 1991 Nissan Skyline GTS-T two-door is offered with a mere 92k verified and documented miles. Finished in a splendid Black Pearl Metallic (732), the aesthetic is set off by optional OEM side skirts, rear spats, and a set of OEM R32 GTR wheels. The body is in good shape aside from some normal dings, chips and scratches associated with normal use. Notable repairs in Japan include a new front bumper. Packing a turbocharged inline-six and manual gearbox, this recently serviced R32 Type M is a highly collectible sports car and enjoyable Japanese Classic that's turn-key ready to rock.
The cockpit is filled with plenty of power amenities. The automatic climate system is easy to use and the driver benefits from an adjustable steering column, power windows, electric locks, and mirrors. They all work properly, except for the power-folding function. The carpets have been cared for over the years and show no major blemishes. The seats are upholstered in a soft gray cloth and are in good overall condition, with only minor wear to the bolsters. They have been cared for over the years, and lack any major rips, stains, or tears. A MoMo steering wheel and Tomei shift knob add a sporty feel to the interior and catch the eye when entering the cabin. The dash is in surprisingly good condition and while it does have a small bubble in between the passenger vents and some slight distortion above the center vents, it's better than the majority of R32 dashes you'll find. The factory audio was removed by the previous owner allowing you to select the head unit of your choice, which is an easy install. We did want to note that the tachometer is no longer functional, which is a common issue on the R32. The door panels are also in great condition showing no rips or tears and the fabric inserts are in great shape too. At nearly 30 years old it's remarkable how well the cabin has held up and this fun-to-drive R32 is well-optioned and would make for a fantastic daily driver.
We love the R32 GTS-T for its simplicity and durability. The RB20DET is a fantastic engine, and this one is fresh off an oil and filter service and comes with a new engine air filter installed, to boot. At only 2.0L it is rev happy and smooth offering a strong powerband with good midrange torque. Thanks to a new 12v battery, this it fires up quickly with the twist of the key and new freshly rebuilt ECU with a lifetime warranty should add some additional peace of mind. A Kakimoto catback exhaust sounds sublime both at low rpm and at full song. Our trained technicians replaced the rear fuel lines while it was in our shop and installed a refinished and coated fuel tank to prevent rust internally. The engine is mated to a manual gearbox which shifts properly. It does not grind and the clutch shows no signs of slipping. The gearbox feels communicative and the Skyline is a blast to row through the gears. Power is sent to the rear wheels and acceleration is impressive for a car of this vintage. The handling is balanced and the suspension can take the rigors of daily use and abuse with confidence now, thanks to a new set of front upper control arms. The brakes feel confident now thanks to new front brake pads and rotors while the GTR alloys are wrapped in new all-season rubber to keep proper adhesion on the pavement. These tires also quiet down the ride immeasurably and will last for tens of thousands of miles to come.
