Sleek body lines, timeless design, and driver-focused cockpit combined into one performance machine creating the ideal all-around sports car. This one owner 1993 Nissan Fairlday Z32 is finished in Nissan's stunning Platinum Silver Metallic (KL0) and the body is in great shape aside from a few minor rock chips and scuffs which is expected from normal road use.

The OEM wheels were swapped out for a beautiful set of 17" BBS alloys wrapped in new rubber at all 4 corners.

The interior design delivers a spacious, driver-centric, sports coupe that has been kept in largely OEM condition. The dash is clear of any bubbling or cracking from UV rays over the years. Nissan designed the controls and cluster to be within the driver's reach, allowing the hands to stay on the wheel, and your eyes on the road ahead. The power windows and locks are operable on the door cards which are in great shape too. Other amenities include the power-adjustable mirrors and power-folding feature for tight parking and prevent scuffs and scratches, both of which function properly. The OEM radio is operable and works as expected although the speakers are likely original and sound quality is lacking. This is a 2+2 model, which means it has rear seats and a slightly longer wheelbase. The T-tops are removable for warmer weather and come equipped with the OEM shades when you need a break from the sun. The cargo area is spacious to fit your t-tops once they are removed with room to spare for your golf clubs. Cold A/C is refreshing with the automatic climate control and the heat is on demand for the colder seasons ahead of us. The seats are trimmed in a light grey cloth and reflect no signs of bolster wear or rips to report. No sagging or stains were found on the headliner and has been well taken care of. Even the original owner's manuals are included in the glove box!
The Z32 is no slouch when it comes to performing and while not as fast as its twin turbo big brother this naturally aspirated GT car is plenty quick. A beefy VG30DE V6 can be found under the large aluminum bonnet, paired to a real deal 5-speed manual transmission. A twist of the key and this engine come to life, thanks to a new 12V battery that was installed here at the dealership. The factory shifter was swapped out to a short-throw with a more positive feel and removed the sloppy play you would typically find on a Z of this vintage. Additionally, the OEM driveshaft was upgraded to a Z1 Motorsports 1 piece driveshaft. You will receive smooth shifts with no grinding and a solid engagement with every gear change. Acceleration is quick and responsive and easily gets you to your desired speeds. The OEM suspension is forgiving and rides nicely over bumps and potholes as Nissan intended off the assembly line. The NA mechanicals are simple and straightforward delivering ease of ownership. Whether you turn a wrench yourself or prefer the dealership to take it on, parts are still available and easy to obtain since the engine was offered here stateside. The brakes are confident to slow this Z down to a stop without a doubt and are responsive to the touch. Our technicians also replaced the original thermostat with a new one ensuring the next owner will have peace of mind. Off of a recent oil and filter service, this Fairlady Z32 is ready to drive you home today and available here at Japanese Classics.
