1992 Nissan Skyline Type-M
Available for: $13,995
We just got in one of the most iconic cars to come out of nineties; this 1992 GTS-T is a great example of why this car has become such a cult classic. With only 112K miles it's been kept up particularly well. This Type-M has been kept all stock which shows just how great of a job Nissan did out of the gate. Finished in one of the most popular colors, Gun Grey Metallic (KH2.) The paint has been kept up quite well, the metallic really brings out a lot of depth in the paint. The body has been kept up with just as well with no notable dents or dings to report. Fitted with the fully factory aero gives this one the trademark look. The passenger side skirt does have a crack at the bottom corner of the door jamb which can be seen in the pictures.
Much like the exterior, the interior has been kept up very well. There have been a few minor tweaks but nothing too crazy. The factory shift knob has been replaced with a sportier Nismo piece. We left the radio and nav/dvd system for a more authentic feel however they do not function well with US frequencies. They can easily be replaced with a more US friendly system. The rest of the interior has been kept original and in great condition. The driver and passenger seats are both free of any notable rips or stains as well as the dreaded bolster wear. The dash does have the ever common bubble that plagues most all R32's. All of the power accessories are functioning as they should. The automatic climate control blows cold as expected. There is some picking on the top of the trim panels in the rear which is a relatively common issue. Overall the interior shows very well for its age.
The RB20DET fires right up with no hesitation. Idle is great and the power delivery is very smooth. The turbo spools up nicely and pulls strong. Shifting through the 5 speed manual is very comfortable with a nice clutch engagement; free of any grinding or slipping. The timing belt and water pump were just replaced, along with four new tires. This car really speaks for itself by just how well preserved it is. It would make for a fantastic daily driver or weekend toy. Naturally with the aftermarket being so strong for these it's a blank canvas for those looking to go down that route.
