1992 Nissan Skyline GTS-t Coupe
Pending Sale: $17,295
The R32 has to be the most instantly recognizable car never sold in the US. These are hands down our most popular vehicle that we sell here and for good reason. Abundant power on tap, running to the proper wheels, paired with 3 pedals, just the way a proper sports car should be. This largely all stock example is a great showcase of what made these cars so special. Our 1992 has a few subtle changes which really make the car. The most obvious is the removal of the Type M wing (which personal opinion) absolutely makes the side profile. You get so used to seeing them with a small wing out back the streamline body looks fantastic without it. Slightly less noticeable is the Type M bumper that has had the N1 style vents molded into it. Typically you only see this on the GTR bumpers so it's a nice adaptation. Without a doubt the most dramatic change comes via the color. While this looks like a Dark Blue Pearl Metallic (TH1) car, it is in fact a custom Sapphire Blue Metallic. Pictures really don't do this color justice, when you get it out into the sunlight and it pops you can't help but stare. While originally leaving the factory in Black Pearl Metallic (732) the new color was a fantastic choice. The paint shows exceptionally well, however it was not fully jambed; so the door sills, trunk, and engine bay are still black. For most that won't be an issue since this car looks so good the way it's sitting. The body shows just as well, free of any notable dents or dings. While aesthetically similar to the stock GTS-t wheel, our '92 have been upgraded to the wider, more convex, R32 GTR wheel. Giving both a more aggressive appearance while improving road grip.
The cabin tells the same story as the bodywork does. The gray cloth interior shows exceptionally well, devoid of any rips or stains. The driver side bolster has even survived the years without suffering the common crinkling or tears from getting in and out. The passenger and rear seats are only in even better shape, as are the carpets and headliner. The subtle changes continue via a much sportier Momo Corse steering wheel. Tucked in to the right of the driver, in the air vent, is a Blitz boost gauge to give you the accurate reading the stock gauge only pretends to show. Unfortunately the A/C compressor on this one has gone bad so it currently does not have A/C. Otherwise the only other spot of note, is the top of the passenger rear quarter panels as its starting to pucker/crack. It's not uncommon to see with the R32, however it simply didn't show in the photos. More impressive is the fact the dash has not suffered the typical bubble that is oh so common.
The engine bay is happily filled with the iconic RB20DET. The engine bay has been left largely untouched which inspires confidence that it's lived an easier life than it's raced out counterparts. With only 63K verified miles it's only just getting broken in. The M's intake helps the turbo breathe a bit easier, along with supplying all the noises that you want from a turbo motor. It has also had a little bit of help in the exhaust department since the stock system is rather restrictive and kills all of the signature sound of the I-6. A Fujitsubo cat back which really opens up the tone and sounds great under load. The suspension has also been freshened up compliments of KYB coilovers. Aside from helping dial in the ride height it's also given the GTS-t a more stable platform to work with when the road gets twisty. While we had the car here it's received a full mechanical overhaul. Starting out with a new Battery, replacement fuel lines/sock/filter, along with 6 new spark plugs. The original Serpentine belts had begun to slack up and squeal so we replaced those while we were in there as well. Four new tires and a routine oil change has this GTS-t singing like a bird. R32's like this are becoming harder and hard to find. Don't miss out on your chance to own a true Japanese legend!
