1992 Nissan R32 Type M Coupe
This modified 1992 R32 Coupe coupe is one stellar ride. Finished in a classic Gun Gray Metallic (KH2,) the sleek styling is accentuated by a GT-R hood, grille, and forged alloy wheels and a First Molding More Collage front bumper. The body is in good shape other than some light repair work noted in the passenger rear and of course, a few minor dings, scuffs, and chips associated with normal use. Best of all, a slew of power modifications including an HKS turbocharger and cams make this two-liter really come alive when rowing through the gears. This enticing Series 2 Type-M would make an ideal candidate for a track toy or even a daily driver if you so wish. Legally imported and fully documented this Japanese Classic is not only a blast to drive but also highly collectible! The interior on this R32 is all business and has been kept up nicely. A couple of cabin upgrades have been added to the otherwise well-appointed interior. Power windows, locks, and doors are standard. The seats are in great condition with only minimal wear and no major stains, rips, or tears. The dash, like most R32's, does have the typical bubble but is otherwise quite clean. The door panels and carpet are both in great condition showing only light wear. An aftermarket ATC sport Volanti wheel steering wheel has been installed along with a Nismo style shifter and Pivot mechanical boost gauge. The trunk carpet has been removed to install a Cusco frame brace and the OEM Skyline rear strut tower bar is also present. A programmable AFC is mounted where the audio would normally be, below the nonfunctional air conditioning. While the aggressive aesthetic and comfy cockpit are nice to have, this R32 is special because of its mechanicals. Pricey upgrades are everywhere, from the suspension to the powertrain. Startup is smooth, and the inline-six churns to life with the twist of the key. The RB20DET engine has been upgraded with only the best Japanese parts available including HKS 2530 turbo, HKS Cams, Adjustable cam gears, 3" Greddy Downpipe, Kakimoto 3" Catback Exhaust, Apexi Intake, and Greddy/Trust FMIC Kit. The engine runs excellent and has a nice aggressive idle thanks to the cams, and benefits from a fresh oil and filter service. Shifts through the 5-speed transmission and upgraded clutch are smooth and firm. The clutch feels great and has no indications of slipping. Unfortunately, the mileage is unknown in this vehicle. Suspension wise a set of adjustable coilovers helps keep the car planted and upgraded rear arms, front tension arms, and tie rods help stiffen up the suspension increasing response and feel. One of our trained technicians has installed new tires at all four corners on the factory forged wheels. With clean examples getting harder to find in Japan, cars like these R32s are an increasingly good investment. Years ago we retailed them for low-teens and the market in only going to go up from here. You can daily drive them, gets parts easily, and ignore all the pratfalls of rolling around in a computer on wheels, a-la most new vehicles. With plenty of quality upgrades and top-notch driving dynamics, you won't want to miss out on this Japanese icon!
