The R33 Skyline was an important car for Nissan. While the GTR saw plenty of success on the circuit, the more accessible GTS25-t models were flooding the streets, taking as many modifications as enthusiasts would throw at them. This 1997 model bears a "Series 2" facelift, and with revised styling and a slight power bump, these sexy Skylines had no problem attracting buyers who had reservations about the previous generation's aesthetics. Offered with a mere 67k verified/documented miles, this R33 is a turn-key ripper, ready for a new life on our stateside shores. Finished in Nissan's Cloud White (QM1) this turbo tuner shows nicely. The body is mostly stock, maintaining an OEM plus appearance thanks to a set of factory rainguards, OEM fog lights, and a genuine R33 GTR rear wing. Complemented by a set of R32 GTR forged alloys this ride has all the aggressive touches needed to turn heads wherever it goes! While the body shows nicely we must note some traces of previous repair work in the rockers, and a replacement of the right rear quarter. Nonetheless, everything seems to have been addressed properly and this Skyline will certainly serve its future owner well for years to come. Sleek and speedy, these R33's are in short supply, and this is one Japanese Classic you won't want to miss out on. 

The interior is polished, and was clearly cared for during its prior Japanese ownership. S2 models saw minor refreshes to the cabin design, including dual SRS airbags up front, a welcome addition to an already well-equipped cabin. The dash material is in good nick, with no signs of cracking or unwanted peeling to be found. The lower dash trim has also held up quite nicely, and the coating has resisted the usual age-related damage these interiors are known for. The center stack houses a fully functional digital automatic climate control unit, with ice-cold A/C and hot heat on standby for whatever climates you encounter. Audio wiring is present, but the head unit has been removed and replaced with an unobtrusive delete plate. The patterned cloth upholstery is free of any serious damage, and aside from some light tears on the driver's side bolster the material should satisfy any potential pilots. A handful of power accessories are in good working order and should make daily driving a hassle-free experience! Power windows and power locks all work at the push of a button, but we must note that the mirrors have lost their power adjustment and folding functionality. A pair of Addzest speakers adorn the rear shelf and are ready to crank tunes out of whatever US headunit you wish to install. The back seats are spacious and offer sufficient room for a 2 door coupe. Overall, the cabin is nothing to scoff at for being 25 years young, and aside from a missing ashtray, and missing trunk trim, the next stateside owner should be more than satisfied. 

Pop the bonnet and Nissan's powerhouse RB25DET shines in all its glory. These 2.5L turbocharged I-6's are fantastic units, and this one has just undergone a full service by our trained technicians! The motor quickly springs to life, care of a new 12v battery, and purrs like a kitten through the JIC Magic catback exhaust system. Power is instantaneous, and the turbocharger spools quickly and whooshes loudly through an HKS intake, allowing this Skyline to take off like a rocket. Shifts through the 5-speed manual transmission are smooth, and with no grinds or pop-outs to be found, and you'll be cruising comfortably at highway speeds in no time. A new fuel filter ensures you won't face any old-car related fueling issues anytime soon, and a recent replacement of the timing belt was even recorded 7k miles ago! Lastly, we've installed a replacement OEM VTC solenoid to ensure reliable cold starts every time. KYB struts deliver more precise handling and a stiffer ride overall, but the suspension is still nicely spec'd for day-to-day use, gliding over road imperfections large and small with ease. With rear wheel drive on the ready, this Skyline packs some serious potential for backroad fun, but with such a versatile platform daily duty is certainly a viable option. No matter what you choose to do with this marvelous Nissan, it's up to the challenge, and we've even installed new tires on all four corners to deliver plenty of grip for tens of thousands of miles to come!
