One-Off 1991 Nissan Skyline
This sporty and reliable 1991 Nissan Skyline R32 GTS coupe was a labor of love by the Japanese Classics staff and is truly one of the cleanest examples of the chassis we've seen, with this example seeing only light weekend and show use since the build's completion. With the iconic styling of Nissan's original Godzilla and the undeniable reliability of the RB20DE, this spicy Skyline truly is the best of both worlds. Finished in Red Pearl Metallic (AH3), what was once a base model R32 GTS has undergone a complete transformation to perfectly replicate the R32 Skyline GTR. The OEM GTR front fenders, aluminum hood, grille, front bumper, and molded FRP quarter panels turn the body into a real showstopper, and a set of silver Work CR Kai alloys look great against the striking red bodywork. The Shorin side skirts, Shorin rear lip and Tomei concept wing round off the laundry list of aggressive aftermarket aero, completely transforming this tame commuter car into a sheep in wolf's clothing. The freshly ceramic coated paint is in wonderful condition with only minor chips and blemishes from normal use. While the mileage is unverified due to a NISMO cluster swap performed in house, this recently serviced R32 is an excellent option for daily driving or as a weekend cruiser that will surely stand out from the crowd. Whether you choose to swap it or keep it a show queen, this is one hot tamale sure to deliver nothing but smiles to the next owner.
The drab factory Type-M interior has been fully reworked and upgraded with oem GTR front and rear seats, which are in fantastic condition with very minimal wear on the drivers bolster. The factory door cards have also been replaced with matching GTR units and lack any major damage and feature the rare optional knee pad. The carbon fiber accented dash is in great condition with the only defect being the notorious bubble between the passenger vents. The carbon trim shows well and houses the fully functional digital climate control. Rest assured during summer heat waves you'll be taken care of with cold A/C, and hot heat is on standby to boot. The headliner and carpets have remained in extremely good condition and the OEM GTR steering wheel shows almost no wear. The driver benefits from power windows, mirrors, locks, and fully functioning sunroof. The factory audio has also been updated, care of a U.S. model Planet Audio headunit and full speaker upgrade. Overall, this Skyline was cared for extremely well by our staff and even includes a set of Imperial floor mats, optional polished dead pedal, and a rare set of Impul gas and brake pedals.
While you won't find the GTR's legendary RB26DETT under the bonnet, the reliable 2.0L RB20DE remains a respectable choice, powering the rear wheels through a smooth shifting automatic transmission. Fresh off a recent oil and filter service, this straight six fires up promptly thanks to a new 12V battery. Additionally, our trained technicians installed a new fuel pump, and new filler neck gasket, ensuring the 2.0L receives all the fuel it desires. The list of engine modifications is short and sweet, consisting of only top quality parts from Japan's most pedigreed manufacturers. The Fujitsubo header, Blitz intake and full Kakimoto exhaust system deliver all the right sounds without being too overbearing at high RPM's. The new valve cover gaskets, new Tomei timing belt, Tomei cam gears and a new water pump round out the list of engine upgrades and maintenance, and should set this R32 up nicely for the road to come. This terrific two door stays firmly planted through the corners thanks to the fully adjustable Fortune Auto coilovers and new front upper control arms. Helping this Skyline stop on a dime are a set of brand-new brake pads all around and upgraded R32 GTR front and rear calipers. Lastly, we mounted and balanced four new Falken tires on the CR Kai's. Not only do they fit fantastic in the wider GTR bodywork, they'll deliver tens of thousands of miles of grip to come!
