1992 Nissan Skyline GTSt
Stock Number: 4454
The R32 Skyline is one of the best driving cars to come out of the '90s and surprisingly still rings true today. 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. With its timeless styling, durable drivetrain, and rewarding drive, this 1992 Skyline is a real Japanese classic. While the 98K miles the cluster reads was not verified, this coupe is finished in timeless Black Pearl Metallic (732) which is among the most desirable colors, not to mention one of the best looking. The paint does show its age as the clear coat has some light swirls and scratches in it. Those who have had a black car know the joys of just how much the color likes to show dirt and imperfections. Overall the paint is in pretty good condition, free of any peeling or notable blemishes. The bodywork is in the same boat with only a handful of typical door dings collected over the years. As you can tell this one has been kept OEM in style, simply not the original OEM for the GTS-t. A Full GTR front end conversion, down to the N1 style duckbill and vents, was done giving the proper aggressive OEM+ look. We all know and love this front end for good reason, especially with the wingless trunk. Stock GTR wheels were painted in a matching black giving the side profile a rather menacing look.
The interior has been upgraded much the same way the body was. The most notable change up came to the driver's seat. The bright red fixed back bucket makes sure you're always in place regardless of how hard you throw it into a corner. The flat bottom Momo wheel fits right in with this and feels much better in the hand than the stock ones do. Otherwise, the rest of the interior has been kept largely all stock and in pretty good shape. There are a few typical issues that we see with most R32s these days. The typical dash bubble is present and the C-pillar delamination, but nothing of real concerns as far as useability is concerned. The key items like the seats are in great shape which is a bit uncommon with the fixed back style. The factory passenger seat offers great bolstering from the factory and is great on longer drives. The back seats, per usual, look hardly used. The door panels and carpeting are in great shape free of any notable staining. All of the power features are working as expected; power windows, mirrors, automatic climate control, and even the sunroof which are notorious for coming in inoperable or sealed shut.
Nissan's tried and true 1998cc turbo-six RB makes great power while delivering above-average refinement. It fires up quickly and feels great throughout the powerband. Our trained technicians have taken care of lots of maintenance items, including four new tires, new HICAS arms, a replacement air filter, and a routine oil change. In Japan, most Skylines are automatic transmission-equipped, however, this '92 has a proper three-pedal assembly. The five-speed runs through the gears happily without a hitch or grind. It does send all that power out back through an aftermarket LSD which certainly makes the car a bit more fun, if you know what we mean. Acceleration is brisk, and the R32 sounds good doing it. A full Fujitsubo high flow exhaust and HKS intake add a few more ponies to the mix and make the BOV pop more pronounced when you lift off the throttle. The acoustics make you forget the car even has a head unit as the RB sings to redline. The OEM suspension provides tons of clearance for daily use but makes the car sit a bit like a truck. KTS coilovers get the ride height down to a more acceptable spot along with improving turn in. The steering is nicely weighted and the brakes offer a reassuring pedal feel. Packaging a punchy turbo-six and a proper manual gearbox with clean, iconic styling, the R32 generation of cars is appreciating in value for a reason. True sports cars with the magic third pedal are falling by the wayside nowadays, and while it makes sense from a sales and performance perspective, there is a genuine disconnect between the driver and vehicle. With clean examples getting harder to find by the day, the Type M R32 is a purebred Japanese Classic!
