1993 300zx Twin-Turbo
**** This Vehicle Is In Need Of Valve Stem Seals And Has Poor Quality Paint & Bodywork.
The Japanese were producing some fast, slick-styled GTs in the 1990s and Nissan's Z32 is one of the most impressive examples of design and engineering. This 1993 twin-turbo is finished in an eye-catching Ultra Red (AJ4) and offered with a mere 58k verified/documented miles on the chassis. The body of this 2+2 is in good shape aside from some minor dings, scuffs, and fisheyes. Additionally, the body does have some waves from being refinished in the original color. While the right rear quarter panel was claimed to have been replaced, we've noticed a repair has been made to both the rear quarter panels and the right door. Optioned with glass T-Tops and a real deal manual gearbox, this budget Z would make for a killer weekend road trip car or even a daily driver. Desirable, stylish, and iconic, this recently serviced and legally imported Japanese classic can be yours today!
The cabin is full of impressive tech and is more driver-oriented than most. The cockpit feels much larger thanks to a set of T-Tops that let in plenty of natural light and are removable for maximum ventilation and a near convertible-like experience. Other functional power amenities include power mirrors, locks, and windows are working other than the power fold function. The seats are in above average shape for their age and lack any major rips, stains, or tears, They are comfortable over long cruises and offer plenty of lateral support, and the power adjustment works perfectly! The carpets have fared well over the years as have the door cards and even the T-Top shades are still in place. The dash has warped a touch from UV exposure but houses the fully functioning climate control, which delivers hot heat and cold A/C on demand. The audio no longer works but the lower Japanese frequencies would have warranted a replacement of the headunit anyways. Still, at nearly three decades old, it's impressive how well this one has held together, and it should have no issues satisfying the next enthusiast behind the wheel.
The driveline is solid, powerful, and refined. Nissan VG30DETT powers this platform and is fresh off an oil and filter service. The 3.0L cranks over quickly thanks to a new 12v battery that should last for years to come. The bi-turbo V6 sounds great in factory form but this one has a deeper tone thanks to a Blitz dual exit exhaust with custom midpipes. Our trained technicians performed a full fluid flush on the transmission and differential while up on the lift. The radiator is also new, and a new thermostat helps keep temperatures in check. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a smooth shifting five-speed manual transmission and a brand new Z1 one-piece driveshaft keeps this one cruising smooth at all speeds! Acceleration is impressive even by today's standards, but we would like to note that this VG does have bad valve stem seals resulting in some oil smoke at startup. The long-wheelbase aids high-speed stability and the suspension can handle the rigors of daily use. The original struts have some age on them, and we'd recommend a set of aftermarket coilovers to get the most out of this wonderful platform. The brakes feel confident and a set of PIAA alloys sit at all four corners. Wrapped in Dunlop rubber, there's plenty of tread left to get you where you need to go.
