1992 Skyline GTS-T Coupe
It really doesn't get much better than a clean, low mileage Japanese Classic. This 1992 Skyline checks all the above boxes and then some! Finished in a stately Spark Silver Metallic (KL0) the exterior of this Skyline looks the part and is set off by an East Bear front bumper, custom headlights, NISMO hood lip, East Bear side skirts, and a tasteful factory rear spoiler. OEM rainguards and privacy tint add a touch of class, and refinished AVS Model 6 alloys complete the strictly-business aesthetic. Racking up a mere 40k verified/documented miles over the years the chassis as a whole has a lot to brag about and has picked up only a few dings, chips, and imperfections over the years. It should be noted that a new right front fender was installed at some point in Japan. GTS-T's in this condition pop up once in a blue moon and are still a solid investment piece, whether it's for daily driving or dedicated use as a weekend toy. Whichever way you spin it, this R32 is a special unit through and through.
The cabin offers loads to brag about and is just about as nice as they come these days. The grey cloth upholstery assumes an almost velvet texture and is free of nearly any defects, and the dash has resisted any notorious UV damage or bubbling these 32's are typically known for. In the center stack, period correct Kenwood audio works like a charm and lies adjacent to a simple to use digital automatic climate control system. As expected, Cold A/C works as advertised and the heat is piping hot as we trudge forward into the cooler months of the year. Aiding driver accessibility, a Personal alcantara steering wheel is affixed to a tilt adjustable column and Defi boost and oil pressure gauges are within your field of view to keep an eye on some critical engine vitals. Both power windows roll up and down with ease and the power locks and mirrors work too. The headliner is tidy, as are the door cards, and if you can see past some missing trunk trim and an inoperable hood release due to the custom hood latches, this cabin should do a killer job at pleasing its next occupant.
The RB20DET under the bonnet is a tried and true powerplant that's maintained a consistent cult following over the years. This makes parts acquisition a snap and servicing is simple to boot! Ours has the added benefit of a fresh timing belt and water pump service, and we installed a fresh 12v battery so she cranks over the first time every time. We also dropped in a new thermostat, and a new fuel pump and filter were installed to keep fresh petrol flowing into all 6 cylinders. With an Apex'i intake feeding the stock turbocharger, acceleration is potent and amplified through an HKS HiPower exhaust with ISR downpipe. Shifts through the automatic box are surprisingly smooth and direct, and gear changes are rapid and predictable. Fortune Auto coilovers provide a significant upgrade in handling, and we installed new front upper control arms, caster arms, and a right rear HICAS arm to get the drivetrain in compliance. The power steering is light and on point thanks to new rack boots, and the ABS brakes do a swell job at stopping this Skyline if needed. We wrapped the AVS' in fresh Falkens, and to cap everything off we performed a fresh alignment here so you get the most out of the suspension upgrades!
