1992 Nissan Z32
Stock Number: 4237
Nissan's Z cars have stood the test of time, it's hard to believe that this is a 27-year-old vehicle. Even by today's standards the body still looks like something that would come off the showroom floor. While our 1992 originally came out in Bluish Gray Pearl (KL1) it has since had a full-color swap to Super Black (KH3.) Based on the fact the color blends so well we assume the color change was done when the aftermarket aero was added. While the stock lines are legendary, they can be considered a little tame. The full Do-Luck aero really gives this Z a completely revamped look. From the particularly aggressive wing down to the 18" Work Emotion XT7's. Overall the color change was well done, all of the jambs were painted along with the undersides of the panels. Aside from the VIN tag, you would never know it wasn't a factory black car. The rear wing does have some orange peel in it from the nature of being FRP, otherwise the aero mates up really well. The body has been well preserved over the years, only a few typical door dings and stone chips to report. Another subtle upgrade are the LED turn signal mirror covers, they bring an additional safety feature on top of looking awesome.
The Z's 2+2 configuration means you could squeeze someone into the back, but more realistically gives you an additional spot for storage. Having the bonus space makes everyday life a bit easier, even if it is just to throw a couple of bags of groceries in. While the interior has been left largely original, there is one key upgrade. The seats front and back have been reupholstered in leatherette giving the cabin a much more refined feel. Since they were redone all four spots are in excellent shape, they even wrapped the door cards to match. Overall the job turned out well, however, you can tell that it wasn't done by a professional shop. To keep the all-black theme running, a classic Nardi wheel was fitted which looks far sleeker than the factory one does. Due to the nature of these t-top cars, sun damage can be a real issue with these from fading fabrics to warped or cracked dashes. This one appears to have been well preserved over the years, all of the common spots still look fantastic. Surrounding the gauge cluster is all of your pertinent controls. Fitted with cruise control, fogs, power windows, door locks, power driver's seat, and automatic climate control that's blowing cold.
Under the hood is the infamous VG30DETT (3.0 V6 Twin Turbo) that made this car so famous. Built with the incredibly robust iron block these are known for their ability to make and handle power. Ours has obviously been kept all stock which most people prefer for a starting point if that's the route they're looking to take. Because of this, it fires right up as soon as you turn the key. With its Fujitsubo catback exhaust this Z sounds like it means business. Power comes on smooth and pulls hard up to the 7K redline. Acceleration is excellent and there's no question about when those turbos spool. The automatic transmission pairs well with this kind of GT car. It has gobs of power on tap thanks to the twin turbos, yet it is comfortable and easy enough to hop in and take on a weekend road trip without any concerns. The transmission engages drama free and runs through the gears with ease, sending all that power to the rear wheels without any hesitation. From the timeless good looks to its incredible driving dynamics, there are no questions as to why the Fairlady has become such a legend. With only 52K verified miles this car is a real gem. Head-turning good looks and the power to back it up, now all its missing is someone to show it off.
