1991 Skyline GTST Type M
There's not much to say about Nissan's R32 Skyline that hasn't already been said. The R32 was the vehicle that arguably put JDM imports on the map in the USA, and despite being 30 years old this timeless coupe continues to turn heads and deliver smiles to countless enthusiasts on stateside shores! Our 1991 R32 GTST Type M is a fantastic example of this classic chassis and with only 78k verified/documented miles on the clock this classy coupe has plenty of life left in it! Finished from the factory in Black Pearl (732) this rear-drive rocket has sleek factory bodylines and is fortunately devoid of any unnecessary aftermarket exterior modification. Being a 31 year old classic, the paint does show typical imperfections including swirls and light cracks in the clearcoat. A true time capsule of an exterior, this R32 sports just a few choice OEM upgrades, including an aero front bumper, low-rise OEM wing, type M side skirts and optional rear bumper spats! Rolling on a set of factory forged alloys this GTST is a perfect testament to Nissan's prowess in the 1990's and a Japanese Classic icon that surely won't last long.
The interior is clean, spacious, and offers plenty of equipment to make daily driving a cinch! Like the exterior, the cockpit was clearly cared for in its prior life and is still in mostly original shape. The factory grey cloth seats are clean and free of any unwanted rips, tears, or stains and the bolstering is more than adequate for spirited driving. The dash is in good nick, and aside from the R32's typical dash bubble above the glove box area the materials have held up well, resisting any pesky cracking or sun damage along the way. The dash trim houses a digital automatic climate control unit, with cold A/C and piping hot heat on demand, and a Carrozzeria audio upgrade plays sound crisp and clear throughout the cabin. For daily duty, a host of power amenities come standard. Power windows, locks, and even power folding mirrors work at the push of a button, and make the driving experience a breeze for all passengers. We can't say enough good things about the condition of the cabin, however we must note that the digital climate control screen does not operate at full brightness. All things considered, wear is minimal, and we've even retained the factory carpeted floor mats and owner's manual as well!
Nissan's formidable RB20DET is an engine that hardly needs an introduction and serves as an extremely appropriate powerplant for this sleek sport coupe. Originally optioned from the factory with an automatic slushbox, the previous owner made the smart choice of switching over to a smooth shifting 5 speed manual box, and if it weren't for the gear selection display on the interior you'd never suspect it wasn't OEM! The motor fires to life, care of a new 12v battery and an HKS HiPower exhaust emits a cacophonous roar from the rear. Idling is strong and confident, and our trained technicians have performed a laundry list of maintenance to keep this sexy Skyline on track for the road ahead. A new OEM timing belt and water pump installed in house keep this RB ticking along, and a new thermostat keeps temperatures in check. A new valve cover gasket and transmission output seal ensure you won't lose a drop of lubrication, and a new clutch was even installed while the gearbox was out. A new coil pack harness and new spark plugs down the board will save you from any immediate electrical gremlins and this motor is a riot under full throttle! Shifts through the 5 speed manual transmission are smooth and direct, and an upgraded steel one-piece driveshaft throws the power down to the rear wheels without hesitation. Rarely do we see these coupes with stock suspension, but boy does it ride well, and the ride height makes for a perfect daily driver setup. Type M models benefitted from bigger factory brakes, and these ones stop on a dime! With so much great maintenance, we're confident this Japanese Classic will treat you well, and with four new Falken Tires installed you'll be set for tens of thousands of miles to come!
