1992 Nissan Fairlady Z
The Nissan Fairlady Z32 is a true Japanese classic sports car with iconic looks and incredible performance that's lineage goes back over half a century. This tastefully modified and freshly serviced 1992 manual transmission twin turbo example is finished in Nissan's beautiful Pearl White (KH6) exterior which is in great shape with only minor blemishes from normal use. The body has been updated using OEM parts such as the '99 spec front bumper, '99 spec side skirts, '99 spec rear wing, and optional rear spats. Sitting on 18” BBS wheels and adjustable coilovers this Z screams OEM+. Even better having just 71K verified and documented miles, this Fairlady ticks all the right boxes.
Inside the jet-like cockpit, one can see that the vehicle was built with the driver's focus in mind. The upgraded Recaro driver seat keeps you firmly planted during spirited driving and is good shape overall showing some minor wear to the outside bolsters. The passenger seat is OEM and in great condition as are the rear seats. The dashboard is in nice shape too, lacking any cracks or major lifting around the defrost vents, a common issue on Z32's. The digital automatic climate control works great and provides warm heat or cold A/C on demand. Power locks, power windows, and power mirrors are all readily available making daily driving a breeze. For those days when the weather is enjoyable, the T-tops are easily removed and stowed in the rear hatch. The aftermarket Panasonic head unit still functions although the screen does have some UV damage. An easy upgrade to a modern US headunit might be the best move for the next owner if they would like to bump their own choice of music. We would also like to note that the power folding mirror function is not functional, although the mirrors can be folded in manually.
Powering this iconic grand tourer is the potent VG30DETT 3.0L twin turbo engine. The powerful V6 fires to life quickly thanks to the new 12V battery, new spark plugs, and fresh oil and filter service conducted. Connected to a real deal manual transmission with three pedals, driving is a joy again. A brand new clutch ensures trouble free operation for years to come as well. Acceleration is brisk and adding a few extra ponies to the already strong V6 is an upgraded Kakimoto Exhaust system emitting a deep throaty tone under load. Thanks to the adjustable coilovers handling is tight, rigid yet comfortable and setting the perfect ride height is a snap. Keeping all of the power connected to the ground are four brand new Falken tires. While conducting maintenance our technicians also replaced the tensioner pulley to keep the new accessory belts in check along with a new clutch fan to keep things cool It's becoming increasingly difficult to find nice examples of the Fairlady Z32, don't miss this one!
