1993 Nissan Skyline R32 GTS-T
The R32 has to be the most instantly recognizable car never sold in the US. These are hands down our most popular vehicle that we sell here and for good reason. Abundant power on tap, running to the proper wheels, paired with 3 pedals, just the way a proper sports car should be. This largely all stock example is a great showcase of what made these cars so special. The Type-M bodywork is more aggressive than your standard R32 with a more pronounced front bumper, side skirts, rear spats, and the wing out back. This one has had a little GTR flair added in by way of an aluminum hood and proper GTR grill. The aluminum hood makes a world of difference when you lift up both back to back. Factory fogs are built into the lower valance and help out considerably when the sun goes down. Finished in Nissan's signature crystal white (326) makes this one a real head turner. Surprisingly white is one of the harder to find colors for the R32 but hands down one of the nicest. The paint shows exceptionally well with a body to match. Aside from some routine little door dings there's really nothing of concern to report.
The interior tells the same story as the bodywork does. Climbing in you'll notice it has been left mostly unchanged from the factory giving a very authentic feel. Trimmed in gray cloth, the interior shows exceptionally well devoid of any rips or stains. The driver side bolster has even survived the years without suffering the common crinkling or tears from getting in and out. There are a few small spots on the driver's seat bottom that can be seen in the pictures, but no punctures or any real cause for concern. The carpets and door cards have been well kept up well, and the rear seats haven't been used that much. The headliner is free of any stains or sags, and the interior plastics show little signs of accelerated wear. A Nismo shift knob sits in place of the original one seeing as they're typically one of the first places to show wear. We're pleased to report that the original wheel has been well preserved as that's typically the next spot to go. We do however have the ever common dash bubble starting to pop up as you can see in the pictures. All of the power accessories are functioning as expected; power windows, locks, and mirrors along with the automatic climate control. All the way down to the original radio and in dash CD player, despite they're limited functionality here in the US.
Popping the GTR hood reveals Nissan's renowned workhorse, the RB20DET. With only 70K verified miles this car is just getting broken in. the two liter starts right up and quietly along. The factory exhaust on these does a good job of keeping a lid on the turbo power plant that way you're neighbors won't hate you ever time you fire it up. To give the turbo some extra fresh air a M's intake filter was added. This definitely makes the turbo more pronounced under load and gives the chirp on lift that everyone loves. The factory suspension is more than capable of taking the worst of public highways yet is planted and builds confidence when the road gets twisty. Power delivery through the 5 speed manual is a breeze to row through. To ensure that the R32 has plenty of miles ahead of it our expert technicians have gone over the whole car and corrected any issues. From the routine items like an oil change, fresh plugs, fuel sock/filter, rear brake pads, to a new battery. It's also had several major items addressed as well; the timing belt and water pump are always a big ticket item, same with the clutch, two new tires, and new Hicas arms. After it's overhaul this GTS-T is ready to go and start turning heads on this end of the world. Whether you're looking for a clean daily driver or a blank slate to build from you really can't go wrong with a stock, well preserved, car like this.
