1995 Nissan R33 Sedan
Available for: $26,995
Performance-oriented sedans is one of our most exciting segments. It's easy to see why, and with a spacious cabin, gobs of power, and impressive handling, Nissan's R33 definitely stands out among the rest. A potent RB25DET engine, slick shifting 5-speed manual transmission, and responsive rear-wheel drive check all the necessary boxes for a sports car, and with room for 5 this sleek sedan is truly a jack of all trades. This 1995 GST25-t is offered with an incredible 25k verified and documented miles, and finished in Nissan's beautiful Purplish Gray Metallic (KN6). The paint has held up well showing only light chips, dings, and scuffs associated with normal use. Notable repairs in Japan do list a replacement left front fender and hood, but that does little to affect this ECR33's overall appearance thanks to the unique color, stellar stance, and freshly refinished factory alloys. Spacious, fast, and just downright fun to drive, this four-door Skyline is fresh off a recent service and is turn-key ready to rock! This is one Japanese Classic that surely won't last long.
Nissan has always considered themselves champions of the "4 Door Sports Car" and by looking at the fit and finish of this interior, we're inclined to agree. Featuring notable safety options, such as dual SRS airbags, and plenty of power amenities it's hard to complain about these R33 interiors, and luckily the previous owner has kept this one in great shape! The low profile dash is trimmed in a grey vinyl that's soft to the touch and fortunately lacks any cracking, peeling, or unwanted UV damage. The lower dash trim shows some light peeling, typical of an R33 of this vintage, but the fully functioning digital automatic climate control more than makes up for it. Cold A/C works at the push of the button, but the hot heat may be more useful for these chilly fall and winter months. For some added comfort behind the wheel, a tilt-adjustable steering column is standard, along with a 4-way adjustable driver's seat! Speaking of seating, the fabric on these factory buckets is in terrific nick, and the patterned grey cloth upholstery has no notable rips, tears, or stains to be found. Power windows, power locks, and power mirrors all work at the push of a button, but we would like to note the power folding option for the mirrors is currently inoperable. The rear seats offer ample room for three, and the trunk can carry all your groceries, luggage, and then some. Before you think this is too good to be true, we must note that the trunk trim is not present, the headunit is inoperable and the gas gauge does not read at the correct level. Other than that, it's hard to scrutinize this cabin, and we think it'll serve the next occupants quite well.
The R33 platform straddles the line between being composed and wild thanks to the punchy RB25DET and the desirable five-speed rear-wheel drive layout. The inline six powerhouse is packed with plenty of potential, this engine is a fine companion for the R33 chassis and is relatively simple to service. This recently serviced RB fires up promptly, care of a new 12V battery, and new spark plugs, new fuel filter and a oil and filter service performed in-house keeps this powerplant idling smooth and confident. Brand new valve cover gaskets keep the engine sealed and ensure the 2.5L doesn't sweat a drop of oil. Shifts through the 5-speed manual transmission are direct and responsive, and power is sent to the rear wheels without hesitation. Acceleration is impressive all the way to redline, and an HKS catback frees up restrictions in the exhaust while releasing all of the stellar exhaust notes the RB has become known for. The suspension is stiff yet compliant and is tuned for performance driving, thanks to aftermarket coilovers and an OEM strut tower bar. Brand new brake pads on all four corners help the four-door stop on a dime and a set of four new Falken tires eliminate any unwanted road noise and will keep this R33 gripped up for many miles to come!
