1995 Nissan Skyline R33 GTS25-t
The R33 Skyline is one hell of a performance coupe. Tons of power, a balanced chassis, and a spacious interior are all strong suits of the model. This 1995 Type M is finished in Black (KH3) and set off by a new set of Fortune Auto Coilovers, NISMO style side skirts, and OEM rear spats. Aside from some light dings, chips, and scuffs associated with normal use the body and paint are in good shape. Offered with only 87k verified and documented miles, this recently serviced four-seater is turn-key and ready to rock. For those who want a collectible and fun daily driver or weekend cruiser, this Nissan is an ideal Japanese Classic.
The cockpit is spacious and has been well cared for over the years. The dashboard is in good nick lacking any major types of damage like bubbling, fading, and cracking. There is some slight lifting from the vents near the windshield, which is common. Woodgrain trim outlines everything in the center stack which makes the cabin feel slightly more upscale. Digital automatic climate control is mounted centrally and is primed and ready to blast cold a/c or hot heat. Power windows, power locks, and power mirrors are all equipped making daily use enjoyable. A Sparco steering wheel adds to the sporty aesthetic and the OEM seats are supportive. The upholstery is in good nick lacking any major rips, tears, or stains. The rear seats are similar condition to the front seats. While the condition is impressive we also wanted to note that the audio doesn't work, the fuel gauge is broken, and the power-folding function of the mirrors no longer operates. Still, that's a bit of nitpicking as this car is better than most anything half its age for sale stateside.,
The powerplant is an absolute gem, and a massive upgrade over the RB20DET it replaced. The RB25DET utilizes a half-liter more displacement and creates abundant torque at low RPM. Fresh off an oil and filter service the 2.5L cranks to life thanks to a new 12v battery we installed. It sounds fantastic thanks to a free-flowing aftermarket catback and idles with little vibration. While up on the lift we replaced the variable valve timing solenoid and installed some new spark plugs. The smooth-shifting automatic sends power to the rear wheels and this little Nissan really gets moving quickly! The handling is even better than the acceleration, and the new Fortune Auto suspension keeps the Skyline planted through the turns. You guessed it, it stops well too. New front and rear pads have been installed and the brakes really bite down. 18" Stage Knight wheels are wrapped in new Kuhmo rubber. They ride great and will last for tens of thousands of miles to come.
