Nissan's S14 Silvia is a tremendously capable little coupe. Featuring a potent powerband, ample interior space, and a tossable front engine, rear wheel drive layout, the S14 is a true jack of all trades and a champion from the streets to the circuit. Our 1997 model sports the highly desired Kouki facelift, featuring more aggressive front end styling and minor tweaks throughout. Finished in Nissan's Aspen White (WK0) the exterior shows nicely, with only some expected dings, scratches, and chips typically seen on a 25 year old vehicle. Even more uncommon than the OE equipment is the lack of exterior modification, as this Silvia still wears its original body panels, optional OEM aero, OEM fog lights, mid rise rear spoiler, and 16" factory alloys. Boasting only 70k verified miles and a fiercely reliable SR20DE powerplant, this Silvia Q's is just getting broken in and would be a perfect daily driver or blank canvas for a fully modified showstopper! Stylish, reliable, and surprisingly economical, this Kouki S14 is a legendary Japanese Classic in its own right.

Condition wise, the interior follows suit, as the cockpit of this spacious coupe looks to have been well cared for in a prior life. While the dash appears to have fallen victim to typical age-related cracking, it's since been masked by a snazzy Shevron dash mat that matches the rest of the interior upholstery quite well! In true 90's fashion, the seats are trimmed in a wild patterned blue and grey cloth. Save for some expected bolster wear and fading on the driver's bucket, the rest of the materials show well, down to the headliner, carpets and door cards. The driver benefits from a tilt-adjustable steering column, and an SRS airbag is on hand to give you some extra peace of mind behind the wheel as well. The lower dash trim is in good nick, housing OEM audio and a fully functional digital climate control unit. For those who plan to daily drive, this one will serve those in temperamental climates quite well as cold A/C and hot heat are readily available. Power amenities are as you'd expect and pretty on par with Nissan's other late 90's offerings. Still, they add a fair amount of accessibility to the cabin and power windows, locks, mirrors, and a power moonroof all operate at the push of a button. The rear bench folds down to accommodate more cargo space in the rear if needed. Overall, the condition of this cabin is certainly impressive for the age, save for an inoperable tachometer, and we've even retained the factory spare, OEM carpeted floor mats, and the original owner's manual and maintenance booklet to add to this coupe's storied history!

Under the hood, the SR20DE makes a perfect companion for efficient daily driving while alleviating some of the woes that turbocharged variants fall victim to. Better yet, it shares a ton of parts with our stateside offerings, making servicing a walk in the park! Our trained technicians have beefed this one up for the road ahead, starting with a freshly installed 12v battery, which was also installed to properly test the alternator. She cranks over swiftly and the 2.0 four-banger emits a reserved whirr at idle. An oil and filter service was taken care of and a fresh fuel filter rids the fuel system of pesky contaminants. To further protect this one, we've installed all new serpentine belts to keep your accessories running smoothly. Compared to the more potent Silvia K's, this naturally aspirated mill is plenty capable of getting up to highway speeds and scooting around town with ease. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly up and down the gears, and rear wheel drive power is at the ready, with a replacement of the rear differential pinion seal shoring up the drivetrain a bit. Aftermarket coilovers on all four corners deliver a ride that's firm yet compliant, and with aftermarket tension rods up front this one handles like it's on rails! Additionally, we've replaced the front left outer tie rod to keep the steering on track. The ABS brakes bite hard when needed and the power steering is light and easy to maneuver. Polishing things off is a set of freshly installed Falken rubber on all four corners, sure to deliver plenty of grip for tens of thousands of miles to come!
