1993 Nissan Gloria Gran Turismo
Stock Number: 4380
The Gloria sedan is a stately and reliable ride that is a touch more unique than our average JDM import. Boasting a smooth ride quality, low cost of ownership, and tons of interior amenities, the Y32s are an exceptional value and easily affordable. This Silky Snow Pearl (WK1) four-door is offered with only 39K verified miles. The body is in good shape other than a few small dings and chips associated with normal use. Other than a set of 15" EB Eurobein alloys, the Gran Turismo is all original, up to date on maintenance, and ready to roll.
The cabin of the Gloria is nicer than our average Y32. The seats are upholstered in a textured gray cloth. Manually adjustable, they are bolstered in such a manner that you could cruise all day and feel comfortable. Devoid of any major stains, tears, or holes, they have been well cared for. The door cards and headliner are tight and taut to their mounting surface and are in good nick. The dash is in good shape as well and is neither cracked or distorted. It features an analog clock, an LCD display, and even a cardholder next to the steering wheel. Although the screen is no longer operational, the hard climate buttons still work although you have to know their sequencing to operate the system. A control box also drops down from the lower dash to reveal some power controls that would normally be hidden from view. The glove box is on the larger side, and even still houses the factory books and owners manuals. The power-folding mirrors actually still work, as do the power locks and windows. The column adjusts as well to make drivers of all sizes feel welcome. Special B-Pillar lights allow for decent interior lighting a night time and make the controls easier to find. With plenty of room for five, it makes for a killer daily driver with a large boot for all your cargo needs.
The VG30E is a compact, low vibration V6. Without a turbocharger, the motor deals with less heat and moving parts, making it even more reliable. A fresh oil service and air filter ensure she is running in tip-top shape and is delivering decent fuel economy. With the twist of a key the 3.0L whirrs to life and set into a constant idle. Acceleration is smooth, and the transmission makes the best of the powerband. Shifts are smooth and are performed without any clunking or hesitation. Attaining highway speeds is easy, and the saloon gets out of its own way without a problem. The steering is light and power-assisted and the OEM suspension is buttoned down and quiet. New all-season rubber has been mounted and balanced by one of our trained technicians, provides year-round grip. For those who want a car that is more less turn-key, and worry-free, the Gloria fits the mold.
Add a drop and some low offset VIP wheels and you have a showstopper. You also have the option to keep it stock and enjoy it as Nissan designed it to be. We love this model's versatility, inexpensive inception price, and uniqueness. These qualities make this Nissan Gloria a certified Japanese Classic.
