1994 Nissan S14 Q’s
In '94 Nissan made a huge leap with the new and improved S chassis. Out with the boxy, angular, designs of the Skyline and Silvia and in with new more rounded bodywork. The new design allowed for the car to be slightly wider and lower than the outgoing Silvia but with only a minimal jump in size. The lower/wider stance only helped to aid the already nimble chassis and now with improved looks. This particular one comes to us with several rare factory aero pieces that really set the looks off. The Navan front bumper has a lower, more aggressive, design that really fits the S14. The mesh grille compliments the bumper and has matching accents in the lower portions as well. Out back the optional Navan wing with 3rd brake light completes the look. This one was even fitted with the factory mud guards to help keep things clean. Arguably the best part about this one is the newly offered Blue Emerald Pearl (FN2) which is an exceptional finish for the car. The paint shows particularly well for it's age, with only 48K miles that comes as no real shock though. The body is in equally great shape, free of any notable dents or dings. Naturally it does have some minor little door dings and stone chips from being driven over the years, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Hopping into the driver's seat showcases the refined interior which is a nice change of pace from the previous generation. The striped seats are in excellent shape and offer great support for the driver and copilot. The entire interior has been exceptionally well preserved, from the carpeting and door panels to the headliner. Even the most common wear items like the steering wheel and factory shift knob are in great shape which is surprising in this day and age. It does appear that a GPS or phone holder was mounted on top of the dash at some point as there is still a bit of an impression from it. Otherwise the dash is free of any cracks or peeling which the S13 was so prone to. Fitted with power windows, door locks, and automatic climate control make it a perfect daily driver. The A/C blows nice and cold so there's no worries come summer time. This one is also lacking the sunroof which means there's less worry of leaks and a reduction in sprung weight.
The SR20DE (2 Liter) fires right up and is a stout power plant in naturally aspirated form. Mechanically the car has been left untouched which is a rarity here in the US. The stock exhaust is quite which makes is a supreme highway cruiser. The suspension feel is great for being stock and the car is very light on it's feet. So if you happen to hit an exit ramp a little faster than anticipated the car feels poised and confident. Since the chassis is the same as the US 240SX all of the parts will overlap so there's no shortage of factory and aftermarket support available for those looking to modify things a bit. The 5 speed engages with ease and is free of any fuss or grinds. The gearbox is well sorted and a blast when you get out into the backroads. Like all of our vehicles our trained techs have gone over the car to make sure that it's ready for daily duty. The S14 just got four brand news tires and a fresh oil change to ensure smooth operation. This S14 really is an untouched gem that would make for an ideal new daily driver. From it's rare factory aero, highly desirable color, down to the robust platform you'd be really hard pressed to find a better all around performer.
