1995 Nissan Gloria GranTurismo Ultima
Stock Number: 4679
Being one of the newest legal imports to the states, the Y33 has some distinct advantages over the current stateside crop of RHD vehicles. This 1995 model benefits from dual SRS airbags, a much more modern turbocharged engine, and redesigned platform lending itself to a more premium driving experience. Finished in Arctic White (QN0) and sporting rare OEM bumper, side skirts, and rear valences. The body is in good shape other than some minor dings, dents, and scuffs associated with normal use. Logging a mere 54K verified miles on the odometer, this highly optioned Grand Turismo Ultima is one of the most unique, luxurious, and inexpensive Japanese rides you can find!
The cockpit is in above average shape for one of our vehicles, and that speaks volumes. The gray cloth seats are incredibly comfortable and are soft to the touch. The drivers and passenger seats are powered and work as they should. Additional power equipment includes functional locks, power windows, and folding mirrors. The digital climate system works as it should, and cold air fills the cockpit if you don't prefer rolling with the windows down. A Mitsubishi Bluetooth head unit includes a working rearview camera. The dash, which includes two SRS airbags, is also in good nick, and lacks any cracking or distortion. The headliner and door cards are in good shape, and the carpets have been well cared for. Even the owner's manuals are included, located in the glovebox.
Nissan redesigned the Gloria for the '95 model year, and what an improvement it was. The chassis became more rigid and housed a set of new engines that would make Nissan legendary. The VQ slate of engine offerings were lighter, more powerful, and responsive and that is evident when behind the wheel. As the top of the line motor, the VQ30DET powers this saloon along. At 3.0L and fresh off an oil and filter service, this mill provides plenty of low-end grunt to get this four-door moving. A new HKS intake filter allows for proper breathing, maximum fuel economy, all while making those killer turbo noises! Mated to an automatic gearbox, power is sent to the rear wheels, the way it should be in a luxury car. The tranny is smooth shifting and responsive, and can most certainly handle the rigors of daily driving. The suspension insulates the platform form the road fairly well and would make a good daily driver. The power steering light and easy to articulate and the brakes feel good. The OEM Nissan forged mesh alloy wheels are all wrapped in a new all-season rubber at all four corners. They quiet down the ride, and will be good for years to come!
