1991 Nissan Skyline R32 Sedan
The R32 Skyline sedan is an unassumingly strong daily driver. It's useful four door layout, peppy turbocharged 2.0L straight six, automatic transmission, and RWD platform provided the Japanese domestic market with a more efficient and reliable alternative to German rivals such as the 3 series. Finished in Black Pearl Metallic (732) the paint is largely original, but does have some noticeable clear coat etching that is expected from a car of this age. Other than that clearcoat, the body is in beautiful condition, and features some rare goodies such as the OEM door guards. The all stock Type-M aero gives this sedan it's distinctive Skyline profile, and paired with the classic five spoke alloys, make for a sleek look. While the coupe and sedan share the exact same platform, the sedan makes day to day life a bit easier to get along with thanks to the easy access to the rear seats.
Much like the exterior, the interior has been kept all original. The interior is in better shape than cars half it's age, and much nicer than most Skylines you'll come across. The steering wheel doesn't show the typical wear one might except, and the headliner and interior plastics are fantastic. The seats, front and rear, are in excellent condition, and have been well taken care of. The bolstering is premium, and this car is an ideal candidate for those with a long work commute. The door panels are in fantastic condition, with virtually no wear, and the c-pillar trim is near perfect in our example. The dash is in excellent condition with no major sun damage and lacks the typical dash bubble common to almost all R32 models. All of the power amenities are functioning as expected. Power windows, door locks, heated and folding mirrors, and automatic climate control. The OEM audio even functions as it should, and the speakers function as well. If you have any questions, you can always read through the original manuals, included in the glove box with the purchase of the vehicle.
Mechanically this R32 is in fantastic condition. The RB20DET engine fires right up and idles, revs, and accelerates excellent. A new 12V battery has been installed to ensure prompt startups even in the cold winter months. Shifts through the auto transmission are smooth, and many say it feels faster than the manual stock for stock. With only a tick under 37K verified miles that comes as no surprise. The platform is stable through the twisties, and the factory brakes and suspension are happy be put to the test. The unmolested engine bay appears to have been well maintained over its lifetime. It feels powerful, and can actually get some decent fuel economy. A new air filter and oil service complete the required maintenance, and Virginia state police inspection has been performed.
