1993 Nissan Y32 Cedric
Stock Number: 4781
The Nissan Cedric is a Japanese Classic due to its ability to balance luxury and reliability so well; all at an inexpensive entry price to boot. High on style this premium rear-drive sedan is finished in a White Cotton (621) and adorned with a set of polished rain guards and a one-off exhaust. The body is in good shape other than some routine little scuffs and dings seeing as the chassis has logged a mere 59K verified miles. Fresh off a recent service, this V6 luxury sedan would make a solid daily driver or a unique cruiser you can depend on to shuttle you to the local Cars and Coffee.
The cabin is in above average shape for a Y32 and was obviously cared for in Japan. Even the OEM carpet mats and oners manual are there just to prove it. The cabin uses neutral tones, and a few swatches of faux wood to create an upscale feel. The seats are supremely comfortable on long cruises and are upholstered in a soft, gray textured cloth. They lack any major rips, stains, or tears and can be adjusted to one's specifications manually. The driver also gets a manual tilting steering column and power windows, locks, and mirrors. Even the power-folding function still operated and the mirrors tuck in for tight parking in a city. The digital climate system features blistering heat and the A/C works well enough for a car of this age. The factory audio was ditched for a more current Kenwood unit that works as it should. The dash is in good nick, lacking any distortion or cracking. The same can be said for the condition of the headliner and door cards, which are tight, taut, and clean. That's not to say this interior is perfect, as the ashtray won't stay closed and the carpets do have some light staining to note. Still, it's tough to beat a car of this age in this condition, and that says something since we see a slew of inventory every month!
Under the hood is the refined VG30E V6. Fresh off an oil and filter service, the 3.0L mill turns over with the twist of the key thanks to a new 12V battery. It should last through the next few winters and provide dependable service when you need it most. This Nissan emits a nice throaty tone, and a custom axle back provides a bit better breathing and a sportier aesthetic. Mated to an automatic gearbox, the Cedric sends power to the rear wheels. There isn't a huge difference in performance from this engine to the turbo mill, though this one creates less heat and is less complex by comparison which makes things easier to maintain. The suspension is stable and this sedan makes for an incredible highway bruiser. It's quiet, composed, and can take both large and small bumps with confidence. The front brake pads have been replaced so she stops on a dime and the steering is light and power-assisted. The wheels are 18" Velva Tesalia which add a bit of flair and are wrapped in tires with plenty of tread.
