1997 Nissan GTS25-t Sedan
Available for: $24,495
At this point the Nissan Skyline needs little introduction, as it's a legendary model in its own right. This well-known performance platform is one of the most sought-after Japanese classics we offer, and with two extra doors and room for five, the sedan models offer plenty of utility for daily duty! Prized for its powerful RB power plant, slick five-speed gearbox, and superior handling, this one has all the right features. This 1997 GST25-t Series 2 is offered with an impressive 92k verified and documented miles and is finished in a fresh coat of Nissans Sonic Silver Metallic (KR4). The paint and body show extremely well with only minor scratches and dings, and the exterior of this facelift model remains exactly as Nissan intended with its aero front bumper, updated tail lights, and factory rear spoiler. This spacious, fast, and fun four-door is fresh off a recent service and is turn-key ready. Suitable for daily driving, weekend road trips, or some spirited backroad driving this R33 can do it all and is undoubtedly a certified Japanese classic.
The interior is in excellent condition, and like the exterior, remains mostly stock giving that time capsule type feel. The dash is in great shape and lacks any major UV damage or cracks. Adding peace of mind for the driver, Nissan equipped the Series 2 with dual front SRS airbags along with a tilt steering column to allow for the perfect driving position. The troublesome R33 trim coating is in good condition resisting any major wear over the years. The digital automatic climate control is simple to use, with cold A/C and hot heat on demand. The driver benefits from power windows, power locks, and power mirrors. These all work as advertised other than the power-folding function of the side mirrors. The door panels are in nice shape as well and lack any major cuts or tears, and the fabric inserts are in great condition along with the headliner and carpets. The seats are comfortable and are lacking any notable stains or tears aside from the outer driver side bolster. It’s clear to us this Skyline has been well cared for over the last few decades, and other than minor wear on the steering wheel and a non-functional OEM radio display, it's very hard to complain about the cabin as a whole.
Under the hood is the legendary RB25DET. The 2.5L is straight off an oil and filter service and starts up with the twist of a key, thanks to a new 12V battery. The new valve cover gaskets, installed by our trained technicians, help insure the turbo six stays topped up on lubricant and this healthy RB pulls hard all the way to redline. The desirable five-speed gearbox makes gear changes rewarding and power is sent directly to the rear wheels. Sitting on aftermarket adjustable coilovers this R33 handles great while cornering, and a new left rear hicas arm and hicas ball joint keep steering and handling predictable under even the most demanding of backroad drives. The brakes are confident, and this frisky four door can stop on a dime if needed. Lastly, we even mounted and balanced new rubber on all four corners to deliver tens of thousands of miles of premium grip to come.
