1991 R32 Skyline GTS-4
Nissan's R32 Skyline never goes out of style. For those who fancy the top-market GTR but don't want the stress of driving a museum piece, should consider this turbocharged, all wheel drive GTS-4. Decked out in Venetian Red Pearl (H2Q) and sporting a full Impul R32-R aero kit, this 1991 Skyline looks the part and is accented by oversized multicoat fog lamps, an Impul rear spoiler and a sleek set of 17" Work Emotion ZR10 alloys. Save for a couple expected paint chips and dings along the body, this 71k verified/documented mile GTS4 shows fantastic overall and is a real head turner. If you need a Japanese Classic to stand out from the pack, this kitted out beauty of a Skyline is the ticket.
As newer vehicles become eligible for import and interiors become more and more complicated, we applaud the R32 for having a simple, easy to navigate cockpit. Of course, daily driving in the 21st century is dependent on power windows, locks, and mirrors, and these all work as advertised including the power folding mirror function. Additionally, a digital automatic climate control system works like new and pumps out cold A/C at the push of a button. A rare factory power moonroof is at the ready, although only the power tilt feature works. Alpine audio plays clearly throughout the cabin if you prefer your own tunes over the turbo 6's soundtrack. The dash materials show well overall save for some typical bubbling atop the glovebox area. The driver's bucket seat has been swapped for a sportier Bride Brix unit, and the remaining seats and other upholstery are in good nick, from the headliner to the door cards. The rear bench on this four door can taxi three additional passengers to a car show of your choice while storing everyone's luggage in the spacious trunk. We even installed an optional Imperial floormat package that protects your carpet from unwanted spills and stains and adds a touch of modern class to this otherwise timeless cabin. Overall, this GTS-4's interior is a fantastic place to be. If you swap out the finicky window master switch currently in the vehicle, it's sure to be a fine candidate for everything from daily drives to weekend cruises!
The RB20DET is consistently one of our favorite powerplants here at the shop. It offers plenty of torque on command, a silky smooth powerband, and is easy to service or upgrade if that's your style. Ours is fresh off a recent service from our trained technicians and is primed and ready to be driven like it's supposed to! This one cranks over with haste, care of a new 12v battery, and settles into a smooth idle, thanks to new spark plugs across the board. A new fuel pump and filter were installed to ensure your RB stays contaminant-free, and an oil and filter service was performed to get this one up to spec on lubricant. With the maintenance performed, this one is a hoot to drive and gets up to highway speeds without breaking a sweat. Shifts through the 5 speed gearbox are direct, and we replaced the clutch to ensure power gets sent to all four wheels without issue. Although the transmission is smooth in operation, we must note a slight whine from the new throwout bearing. This can be a common issue and it does not affect drivability. HKS coilovers improve handling tenfold while also eliminating the wheel gap for better aesthetics. Both rear inner HICAS arms were replaced to get the drivetrain in compliance, and this one corners like a dream! The brakes clamp down hard when called upon, and the 18" Work wheels are wrapped in fresh Falken rubber, primed and ready to deliver tens of thousands of miles of worry free cruising!
