1995 Nissan 180sx
Nissan's 180sx needs no introduction. The lightweight, well balanced, fun to drive chassis is a favorite all over the world and with endless aftermarket support, it's easy to see why these cars are so popular. If you're looking for a 180sx that includes a ton of money saving upgrades already, this 1995 example is the ticket! The exterior is outfitted with full aero and a one off dark blue paint job. While the aero is styled after the kouki model 180sx type x optional aero, it is not OEM. The front bumper, fenders, side skirts, and rear spats are FRP and fitment is not on par with OEM. However, it does provide an awesome looking exterior. The paint is in good overall condition minor a few dings and scuffs from use. The body is also nice with no major dents or damage. Notable repairs include a new hood and replacement FRP front fenders which are vented. Since the cluster has been swapped previously we can not verify the miles on this 180sx and as such is being sold with unknown/not actual miles. To complete the Type X look the tail lights have been replaced with OEM Type X lights and the OEM Type X rear wing completes the exterior aesthetically.
Inside the cabin is all business. The majority of the rear interior has been removed including the rear seats, carpets, and plastic trim. The battery, which is brand new, has been relocated inside the cabin where the rear seat was previously mounted, which allows for better weight distribution. The front interior remains largely intact however does lack carpet. The drivers seat has been replaced with a reclinable Bride Brix bucket seat and while it does have some heavy bolster wear, it still performs its function of holding the driver in the seat during more spirited driving. The passenger seat is an excellent condition late model 180sx seat and shows no major wear. The door panels are both in surprisingly nice shape with only a few minor marks on the driver's panel and underneath the carpeted dash cover is a cracked OEM dash. A Defi-Link Meter ADVANCE ZD is mounted to the left of the Momo steering wheel and is a powerful gauge having the capability to display numerous engine vitals all in one place. Beside it is a Defi boost gauge and below them is a HKS EVC-S boost controller and playback control for the Defi gauge. The digital climate control functions properly and blows cold A/C or hot heat upon command. This S13 certainly has a bare bones interior, but you can't deny how cool it is!
Mechanically, this 180sx really shines. Equipped with the infamous SR20DET and numerous spendy modifications, this is one very fun car to drive. A new battery allows the engine to start immediately. Once started the SR20 settles into a smooth idle and sounds menacing thanks to an aftermarket downpipe, test pipe, and catback exhaust. Modifications include a Greddy front mount intercooler with piping, an aluminum radiator, a large capacity aluminum oil pan, Blitz air intake, upgraded coilpacks, T28 turbine with HKS actuator, and a 2 way rear differential. Aftermarket adjustable coilovers provide height adjustment while improving handling. All of these modifications not only make the car perform better, but it now makes all the right sounds to instantly bring a smile to your face! Acceleration is brisk and pulls strong throughout the RPM range. Shifts are performed through the 5-speed manual transmission and lacks any grinds. The clutch is upgraded but not aggressive and shows no signs of slipping. Our trained technicians have performed the following maintenance as well: fresh oil and filter change, 4 new tires, new serpentine belts, new left front inner and outer tie rods, and new rubber fuel lines at the tank. This 180sx is perfectly suited to be a weekend warrior for tack or drift days, all while being comfortable enough to drive you to work on Monday.
