1995 Nissan Cedric GT
Japanese luxury sedans in the 90s were some of the best most reliable vehicles worldwide. Many unique sedans never sold new here in the U.S. are now making their way here as both VIP platforms or phenomenal daily drivers. This 1995 Nissan Cedric GT is a prime example of just that. Nicely equipped with luxury amenities and has remained unmodified throughout its life in Japan. Finished in Nissan's White Pearl Tricoat (QN0), this Gloria is stunning in person, especially in the sunlight. With only a mere 78K verified miles, the body has normal rock chips from use, along with a few scuffs and dings associated with normal use over the past 25 years. Notable repairs include a new front bumper. The privacy tint does help keep the interior temps down as well as providing a nice look aesthetically. Recently serviced by our trained technicians, this GT is ready for the roads here in the US.
Since the majority of the time will be spent in the cabin, Nissan made sure they made you comfortable. With heaps of luxury amenities and plenty of interior space, comfort was definitely a priority. The seat bolsters have held up great over the years showing no signs of wear. The seats are trimmed in a soft dark grey cloth as well as the door cards and are both in great condition. No rips or stains were detected along the carpet and headliner and are in remarkable condition. This GT comes with electric windows, mirrors, and locks that are fully operable. When we tested the electric folding mirrors, the passenger side would fold in, but would not go back out. You are still able to manually fold the mirrors in when you need to, and we wanted to make note of this. This Cedric also comes equipped with dual SRS airbags and cruise control, which were uncommon in the 90s. Digital automatic climate control at a push of the button blows cold A/C and heat to keep the cabin temps consistent, without any fuss. The factory radio was ditched for a double din AddZest head unit which functions however the Nav feature will not work stateside. Plenty of cargo space in the trunk to store suitcases for a road trip, or even for a run to the grocery store. Overall comfort with plenty of amenities makes this one desirable sedan to own.
The VQ30DE engine is tucked away under the bonnet of this GT. The mechanics are straightforward and parts are easily obtainable here in the US. The power is sent to the rear wheels and grips easily, thanks to the new tires we installed. The automatic transmission and shifts exceptionally well through the gears and is perfectly suited for US highways. Our technicians also replaced the front brake pads and rotors, and now slows this sedan to a stop with ease. The suspension is responsive and handles the bumps in the road with confidence. We replaced the front-left outer tie rod as well. A new engine air filter was installed and a new 12V battery to ensure the Gloria is performing at its best.
