1993 Nissan 180SX Series 2
Stock Number: 4751
There is something to be said about clean, unmodified, vehicles these days. With the consistantly rising popularity of the S13 it's nearly impossible these days to find one that's been left untouched. This 1993 comes in with a verified 94K miles and has been kept all stock. To add a little cherry on top this 180SX was finished in Nissan's classic Pearl White (WK0) which is one of the best factory color options. The paint shows exceptionally well for its age with a great luster. The body is in equally good shape and appears to have been well preserved over the years. All of the gaps line up as they should and makes for a very clean factory look. Of course, with any car that's been on the road, it does have some routine little door dings and stone chips, but nothing out of the ordinary to report. Those with a keen eye will also spot the factory side skirts and rear spats which compliment the front end nicely without looking like cheap aftermarket pieces.
Like the body, the interior on this one has been left nearly all stock. The interior shows particularly well for its age, as these are known to having issues. Unfortunately, like most all S chassis, this one does have some dash cracks which is why it has a Chevron dash mat. The mat does help spruce up the generally plain interior along with helping to prevent the dash from getting any worse from sun damage. Both of the front seats have held up quite well over the years. While the driver's seat does have a little bit of wear along the bolster (which you can see in the photos) it's been spared from the more concerning issues like seam rips or tears. As usual, the back seats look hardly ever used, even if it is just as an extra storage space for a gym bag or groceries. All of the seats and carpeting are free of any severe stains or unsightly blemishes. All of the driver controls are all at arm's reach, and the 180 has all of its power accessories functioning like the power locks, folding mirrors, windows, and digital climate control. One of the few changes is the rather sleek Personal wheel which spices up the interior a bit without looking out of place. It also has an aftermarket radio as well which is rather common. It does function to the best of its ability but you'll probably want something a bit more current at this point.
Under the hood is what really sets this car apart from a typical US 240. Pop the hood and you'll find the iconic SR20DET. The Aluminum 2.0 liter has set the benchmark in the S Chassis world due to its ability to make power. With a quick turn of the key, the 4 cylinder jumps to life and is surprisingly quiet through the factory exhaust setup. Ideal for a daily driver since it's not going to drive you crazy with that highway drone aftermarket exhaust can be known for. With how clean and untouched this one is chances are its new owner will probably keep it that way, however, should you so choose there is literally no end in sight for aftermarket modifications when it comes to the S chassis. The 5-speed shifts with ease and the clutch is very forgiving, it is communicative and nicely gated. Having a third pedal is the only way to go in a car like this, it makes the entire driving experience so much more exciting. Power is sent outback with no issue as any proper sports car should. The stock suspension has no issue with handling Virginia's traditionally poor roads. Since having our techs go over it we've performed all of your routine maintenance to get you back on track. A fresh battery, air filter, new rubber on all four corners, along with a slew of replacement suspension parts. The right rear HICAS arm, left rear HICAS balljoint, front right bellow boot all needed to be cleaned up but not terribly uncommon when you're talking about 27-year-old cars. We've got this 180 ready to hit the streets! Its lines have never gone out of style, the motor has become a legend, and drive backs it all up; the S13 truly has stood the test of time as a proper Japanese Classic. One drive and you'll understand why the S13 is one of the best driving cars to roll out of the Nissan factory.
