1993 Nissan 300ZX TT
Pending Sale: $16,995
The Japanese were producing some fast, slick-styled GTs in the 1990s and the Z32 is one of the most impressive examples of design and engineering. This 1993 twin-turbo is finished is a brash (AJ4) Ultra Red and offered with a mere 57k 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 do not think it was, however, a repair has been made to the right rear quarter panel and right door in the past. Optioned with glass T-Tops and a real deal manual gearbox, this fabulous Z would make for a killer weekend road trip car or even a daily driver. Collectible, reliable, and iconic this recently serviced and legally imported ride can be yours today!
The cabin is full of impressive tech and is more driver-oriented than most. The cabin feels much larger thanks to a set of T-Tops that let in plenty of natural light. They are removable of course for maximum ventilation and provide 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. The carpets have faired fine over the years as have the door cards and even the T-Top shades are still in place. The dash defrost vents are warped a touch from UV exposure, a common issue on Z32s, but the dash is in otherwise good shape. The audio no longer works and the a/c doesn't blow cold, but all the components are there. Still, at nearly three decades old, it's impressive how well this one has held together.
The driveline if stout, powerful, and refined. Nissan VG30DETT powers this platform and is fresh off an oil and filter service. The 3.0 V6 cranks over quickly thanks to a new 12v battery that should last for the next four years at least. The bi-turbo mill sounds great in factory form but this one has a deeper bark thanks to a Blitz dual exit exhaust. A new air filter and set of serpentine belts ensure proper engine operation and the VG is mated to a slick-shifting five-speed. We have replaced the rear main seal and performed transmission and differential services while we were in there. The radiator is also new and we have done the thermostat as well. Power is sent to the rear wheels, and acceleration is impressive even by today's standards. The long-wheelbase aids high-speed stability and the suspension can handle the rigors of daily use. It is original and could use for some new coil overs to complete the package but they will do for now. The brakes feel confident and a set of 17" Stern alloys sit at all four corners. The shop has mounted and balanced four new all-season tires on the Z which quiet the ride down noticeably and should last for tens of thousands of miles to come.
As a fast, sexy coupe it doesn't get much better for a JDM import. Affordable, fun, and universally loved, it's hard not to see this one is a Japanese Classic.
