1995 Nissan Skyline R33 Coupe
Pending Sale: $29,995
During the mid-90s, Nissan was still at the top of its game, boasting success in sales showrooms and on the race track. The new R33 platform was proving to be just as capable as its predecessor it solidified Nissan's claim of producing the most capable sports car in the Japanese market. This 1995 GTS25-t proves the hype is real, with its firebreathing RB25DET engine, factory five-speed manual gearbox, and balanced chassis. Finished in a fresh coat of Nissan White (QM1) this R33 was cared for in a previous life maintaining its stock appearance. Our coupe features an OEM optional factory front bumper, privacy tint, OEM alloys, and midrise rear wing which complement the flowing lines and muscular, rear-drive proportions. Aside from a few scratches and dings, the body is in great shape overall, and this sporty four-seater is offered with a mere 57k verified and documented miles. Likely to attract both enthusiasts and collectors alike, this Skyline would make for a wonderful daily driver, weekend cruiser, or track toy. Fresh off a recent service, and turn-key ready to rock, this Japanese Classic is a must-have for performance lovers and JDM aficionados who want a sexy, well-rounded, and fun coupe.
Once inside the coupe's surprisingly spacious interior, you'll find the gray cloth seats are still plush and soft to the touch. They are comfortable on long cruises and lack major rips, sun fade, or holes. The driver-side seat bottom does show a light stain and the steering wheel has some wear on top note but at 25 years old it's a bit of nitpicking. The headliner and carpets also show extremely well with no major stains or peeling. The driver benefits from power windows, power locks, and power mirrors, as well as a fully functioning Carrozzeria audio system with Bluetooth capabilities. The dashboard and door cards lack any cracks or sun damage aside from some light flaking on the radio surround. The adjustable steering column allows the driver to obtain the perfect seating position while also having a clear line of sight. The gauges are easy to read and all the switchgear is at hand making daily use enjoyable. The digital auto climate control is fully functional supplying heat on demand and the A/C blows cold after a recharge. That's not to say the interior is perfect, as the power-folding mirrors, and tachometer are currently not operational along with a missing hand brake boot, and missing carpeted rear trunk panel. Overall, this interior was well maintained and adds to the appeal of this unmolested time capsule.
A massive improvement over the R32, the chassis became more rigid and the engine more powerful thanks to a half-liter bump in displacement in the GTS25-t models. The aforementioned legendary sump is the 2.5-liter inline-six RB25DET mated to a 5-speed transmission. The freshly serviced engine runs smoothly in stock trim and pulls hard through all five gears. Fresh off an oil and filter service the straight-six starts up promptly and benefits from a new 12v battery. It idles flawlessly thanks to a new set of plugs, fuel filter, timing belt, and water pump professionally installed by our trained technicians. The transmission is still smooth, and precise and acceleration is impressive even by today's standards. The factory suspension delivers an untroubled ride while braking is responsive and firm thanks to a brand new set of rear brake pads. The OEM Nissan wheels are wrapped in brand new Falken tires and will offer plenty of grip and a quiet ride for many years to come.
