1993 Nissan Skyline GTS
Pending Sale: $19,995
The Nissan Skyline is a top seller here stateside and has always been known as an iconic Nissan. The chassis is well-balanced and sporty yet refined enough to be a comfortable commuter. This one-owner, 1993 Nissan Skyline GTS is offered with an astounding 29k verified and documented miles. Finished in a Charcoal Pearl Metallic (KH2), the body is in good shape other than some minor rock chips and scratches from normal use. For those who desire to own a reliable and unique sports coupe, this recently serviced and legally imported Skyline will surely fit the bill!
The interior is quite spacious and comfortable. You can easily accommodate four passengers, although we wouldn't recommend driving cross country with folks in the backseat. The seats are trimmed in a soft gray contrasting cloth that is soft to the touch. It lacks any major rips stains or tears and the buckets are comfortable over long drives. The door cards and headliner look equally good, but we did want to note some wear on the passenger side armrest. The dash has the typical passenger side distortion, but nothing we haven't seen before. We also wanted to note a missing piece of the gauge bezel about the size of a half-dollar that's difficult to notice. The factory radio is fully functional and the automatic digital climate control is easy to operate. The vents blow cold A/C for these last remaining hot days of summer while the heater will provide plenty of warmth later in the year. Electric windows, locks, and mirrors work as advertised and the power-folding function is helpful for tight parking. This interior definitely belonged to an owner who took pride in the upkeep of their car, and we hope the next owner does the same.
This GTS is powered by a buttery smooth RB20DE. This naturally aspirated six-cylinder delivers enough power to safely merge on the freeway and returns some decent fuel economy, too. The 2.0L starts up promptly thanks to a new 12v battery and sets into a confident idle. It's fresh off an oil and filter service and revs freely, with little vibration. A new engine has been installed to keep the RB breathing freely. The powerplant is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, which sends torque to the rear wheels. Acceleration is brisk and the manual shifts seamlessly up and down the gears. The chassis feels predictable and balanced and the OEM dampers can handle the rigors of daily use. The power steering and brakes inspire confidence, and the factory alloys are all wrapped in new rubber at all four corners. These tires quiet down the ride nicely and should provide tens of thousands of miles of premium grip for years to come.
