1993 Nissan 300ZX Z32
Stock Number: 4344
Grand Tourers are a special class of vehicles, emphasizing refinement, power, and room for luggage. Nissan hit a home run with the Z32 to begin the '90's, with driving dynamics that matched the stellar good looks. Offered with only 77K verified miles, this 1993 Fairlady Z is finished in an eye-catching Ultra Red (AJ4.) Boasting '99 spec aero, Nismo side markers, and BOMEX mirrors, the body is in good shape. With any 27-year-old car, there is some normal wear including a few dings, chips, and scratches. Fresh off a recent service, and featuring some minor performance upgrades, this turbocharged, T-Top Fairlady could be yours!
The interior of the Z utilizes flowing lines and premium materials. The low slung dash, which is in good shape, and raked windshield make the cabin feel more akin to a fighter jet. A Momo race-inspired wheel and Veilside shift knob give a more aggressive aesthetic. The soft, gray buckets are bolstered so that the driver and passenger don't slosh about while slaloming through the twisties. They aren't going to squish your hips like other designs, and are great for long road trips. A digital climate system handles management of the ambient interior temperature and makes simple adjustments easy as the controls are mounted by the steering wheel. While the OEM audio unit was removed, and there is a missing plastic panel in the rear hatch area, the rest of the interior has withstood the test of time. The carpets and door cards are in good nick, and the OEM T-Tops allow in much natural light making the passenger area feel less cramped. Power locks and windows are also standard, and all of the factory gauges relay all the important engine vitals to the driver.
Resting underneath the sloping bonnet, Nissan's biturbo VG30DETT rests. Making nearly 300hp in stock trim, a Fujitusbo dual exist exhaust adds a few additional ponies and sounds great. A new 12V battery installed by one of our trained technicians ensures that cold starts are good for the next four to five years. Additionally, a fresh oil and filter service has been performed to ensure the 3.0L remains happy. Depressing the accelerator, the VG hits full boost and powers up to interstate speeds with ease. A new set of plugs ensures proper fuel combustion and should keep the VG happy for quite a while. The manual transmission does a wonderful job of putting the power to the rear wheels and rowing through the five forward gears is a pleasure. The OEM suspension handles the bumps well enough and the large disc brakes bite down with some serious force. Flat-faced aerodynamic factory alloy wheels have new rubber-mounted all around and keep the Z safely planted on the ground.
An iconic design, this Fairlady is powered by the best engine and transmission Nissan offered at the time. As a collector item, weekend warrior, or daily driver, the Z is an undisputed performance heavyweight that can be had at a third of the price of a comparable Supra. A Japanese Classic like the won't be around for too long!
