Pending Sale: $10,495
Stock Number: 4493
The S14 has become a legend in its own right. Long, low lines, paired with phenomenal balance, wrapped up in the proper RWD platform, what more could you really ask for? 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. Finished in a very unique color; Blue Emerald Pearl (FN2) this Zenki is a real head turner with it's all stock body. The paint shows particularly well for its age, with only one owner and 32K verified miles it 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 for a 25-year-old vehicle.
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. While the driver's bolster does have some wear from getting in and out its been kept pretty minor thus far. Per usual, the back seats look nearly new since nobody ever wants to squeeze back there. 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 gear selector are in great shape, which is surprising in this day and age. 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. Even the A/C is functioning for the upcoming summertime weather everyone has been jonesing for.
The SR20DE fires right up and is a robust power plant in naturally aspirated form. The best part is that the motor has been kept untouched making the car a real jewel. Of course for those looking to make bigger power the DET motor would drop right in. In stock trim, though the SR is surprisingly quick on its feet and the automatic ensures that it's always in its powerband. The 4-speed auto shifts in and out of gear fuss free and makes it ideal for someone in a higher traffic area. The stock exhaust is quiet which makes is a supreme highway cruiser that turns in surprisingly good fuel economy. The suspension feel is great for being stock and the car is very light on its feet. That way if you happen to hit an exit ramp a little faster than anticipated the car feels poised and confident. The brakes quickly reel you in and offer a reassuring pedal feel. Of course, since the chassis is the same as the USDM 240SX most all parts will overlap meaning there's no shortage of factory and aftermarket support available. When you're looking for a new daily driver things like this can make a big difference. Our trained techs have updated all the routine maintenance like a fresh battery, new air filter, and a routine oil change. This S14 really is an untouched gem that would make for an ideal new daily driver. From its highly desirable color to the robust platform you'd be really hard-pressed to find a better all-around performer.
