Reimagined for 1995, Nissans Y33 generation of sedans saw plenty of refinements and improvements over its already renowned predecessor the Y32. Offered with only 65K verified miles, this rear-drive four-door spoils those aboard with a splendid drive and tons of power accessories. Adorned with OEM rain guards, and finished in a dashing (KL0) Silver Metallic, the body is in good shape other than a few minor dings and scratches associated with normal use. Recently serviced, and fully documented, you could be one of the first to down Nissan's newest Gloria Gran Turismo.
The interior is spacious and well-appointed. A power driver's seat and SRS airbag are welcomed improvements, and a plethora of quality materials were chosen for the model upgrade. This model feels more composed on the road and by comparison to the Y32 has a reduced amount of squeaks and rattles. Long trips are comfortable as the seats are well-bolstered around the cabin. The cloth is soft to the touch, and there are no major rips, stains, or tears to note. A digital climate system functions and the long summer can be held at bay with some cold A/C that pumps through the cabin. The factory audio also works, and if you didn't want to hear the growl of the VQ V6, you could choose some tunes instead. The dash is in good shape, as are the carpets, headliner, and door cards. Faux wood grain accents break up the cabin's neutral color palette and are in good nick. Power folding mirrors make city parking less hazardous and work as they were intended. Power locks and windows are also standard, and even the owner's manuals and OEM mats are included for those who value authenticity.
A new set of engines were chosen for the Gloria and the VQ30DE that powers this sled is one hell of an engine. The throttle response feels better than the N/A mill it replaced and is more powerful as well. The 3.0L V6 fires up with a twist of the key and sets into a low vibration idle. Benefitting from a fresh oil and filter change, this Y33 isn't scheduled for another service for 3,000 miles! Power is sent to the rear wheels through an automatic transmission as it should be in a luxury cruiser. The gearbox shifts with less slack than the Y32 units do and operates quite smoothly. Inherently more balanced than cheaper FWD sedans of the era, the midsize Gran Turismo reacts quickly to braking inputs. Our trained technicians have installed new brake pads out back and a set of toe arm bushings to refresh the suspension. This Nissan handles bumps large and small with confidence and is further aided by a new set of tires to ensure premium year-round grip.
This stately sedan features great styling, refined drivetrain, and a handsome interior. As a turn key daily driver or weekend toy, this Japanese Classic would surely do the trick!
