1991 Nissan Skyline Sport Sedan
Stock Number: 4404
The R32 Skyline sedan does just about everything well. The convenient four-door layout, peppy turbocharged 2.0L straight six, 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 Pearl Black Metallic (732) the paint is in great shape, and the clear coat is deep and lustrous. Beyond a few normal nicks and scuffs associated with a 30-year-old vehicle, it's in beautiful condition. The iconic, angular Skyline profile looks especially sleek, set over the trademark factory silver five-spoke alloys. Understated, yet sporty, the R32 sedan is the complete package for a daily driver.
The interior is purposeful and understated, in the way you'd expect a Japanese sports sedan of this era. Compared to the average Skyline we retail the quality of the interior is above average and all original. From its nicely bolstered front seats, done is a quality thatched gray cloth that is soft to the touch. On the other hand, the rear seats look hardly used and the carpet and door cards reflect the same type of care. The dash is one of the more impressive spots as it's free from the ever common dash bubble. The power windows, locks, and mirrors function as they should along with the digital climate control for year-round enjoyment. There is one change up to the interior which is an aftermarket head unit which has far more use here stateside than the average JDM radio. It even has the original books in the glovebox which is a particularly rare find.
Popping the hood reveals Nissan's renowned workhorse, the RB20DET. The RB fires right up thanks in part to a new battery, and due to the design of the inline-six idles nearly vibration-free. With only 99K verified miles, this one's only just getting broken in. The untouched engine bay is refreshing to find, as many have been modified in some form over their life, even if it's just an air intake. Power comes on quickly as the turbo spools and pulls heartily to redline. The automatic engages trouble-free and is quick to change. People knock the automatics when in reality they're quicker than the 5-speed cars since you never have to lift. The brakes feel assured and the factory suspension handles anything you throw at it with ease thanks to a new set of tires. This platform stays flat in the twisties and feels more than capable if you road surfaces are less than ideal. The steering feels tight and nicely weighted and translates road feel well to the pilot.
Thanks to importing regulations you can finally put a Skyline in your actual garage, not just the one in Grand Tourismo.
