1992 Nissan Skyline GTS25
When you think of a Skyline, you may not think of the sedan right off the bat. There is nothing wrong with four doors for easy access to the cabin and a bit more passenger room to compliment the Skyline driving experience. Finished in Gun Grey Metallic (KH2), this 1992 Nissan Skyline GTS boasts a mere 99K verified and documented miles. The body is in good shape aside from some minor dings and chips and some blemishes on the moldings surrounding the windows. This Type XG is powered by a silky-smooth inline-six engine and a real-deal manual gearbox. Combined with its stunning looks and Nissan reliability, it would make for a wonderful daily driver or weekend cruiser. Collectible, stylish, and fun to drive this R32 is a Japanese Classic!
The interior is important to consider when purchasing a used car. The truth is you'll be seated inside more than looking at this appealing exterior. Nissan designed this spacious sedan with that in mind. Four doors to allow passengers to get in the back seat comfortably without having to fold seats forward each time. The dash condition is clean and clear of bubbling or cracks which affect the R32s badly. In this type of condition, dashboards go for over $2,000 online with regularity. The cabin is rather tidy showing no stains or rips in the upholstery as well as the headliner. The cloth seating surfaces have obviously been cared for and are still soft to the touch. Both of the boots for the emergency brake lever and the shift knob are intact but show some wear over time. The door cards are also in good shape showing no notable tears or delamination. There is some discoloring on the actual door handles that don't match the color of the other trim pieces but all function properly. Power amenities include electric windows, locks, power-folding mirrors. These all work as they should and make daily use much more manageable. Automatic digital climate control is fully operable blowing heat and cold A/C on demand. The factory radio was thrown out for a Carrozzeria head unit but doesn't seem to be working when we tested it.
Fitted underneath the bonnet of this sedan is the beloved RB25DE which is stoutly built and nearly vibration-free in its operation. The drivetrain is turn-key ready thanks to the new 12V battery, we have also replaced the oil and filter to ensure the new owner some peace of mind until the next scheduled maintenance. We also replaced the valve covers to make sure the 2.5L stays topped up on oil and changed out the serpentine belts. Best of all we performed the most expensive service on this sedan! Our trained techs have replaced the timing belt and water pump saving some serious expense to the next owner. Mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, the driver is able to be in total control of gear selection which makes driving much more involved. Power is sent to the rear wheels and grip is always on hand thanks to the four new tires we installed after our preliminary inspection. Despite lacking a turbo the Skyline has ample power to get up to and merge safely at highway speeds. It also can return some decent fuel economy on the highway if you are planning on a long road trip. The stock suspension handles the road imperfections confidently and can handle the rigors of daily use. The steering is light and easy to manipulate and brakes are responsive when you need to slow down or come to an abrupt stop. Finally, the R32 completed its Virginia state safety inspection and all it needs now is a new owner!
