Ask any JDM enthusiast and the consensus is clear. Nissan’s S chassis is internationally known as the go-to platform for drifting, with the S13 chassis being the poster child for this style of high adrenaline driving. Its perfect weight distribution, front engine rear-wheel-drive layout and light curb weight make the S13 easy to drive and even easier to slide around, making it a fan favorite among drifting communities worldwide. While the USA received the S13 Nissan 240SX in a naturally aspirated 2.4l configuration, the Japanese domestic market received a few more exciting engine options, namely the 1.8l turbocharged CA18DET, and the legendary SR20DET “redtop”, offered in both the S13 Silvia and 180SX models. Because of the car’s popularity in motorsports, aftermarket companies were pumping out boatloads of performance parts for these vehicles. It got to a point where it was nearly impossible to find a stock example of these cars, everyone that owned one wanted in on the aftermarket parts craze. Body kits, spoilers, and of course a wide variety of engine upgrades flooded the Japanese import scene, with the S13 being the poster child for some of the latest and greatest innovations in aftermarket parts design. This particular JDM 180SX is no different and is a perfect running example for anyone looking for a solid base for a unique classic JDM project! This 1994 model year example is one of the good ones, optioned from the factory in Type X trim, with the sought after SR20DET 2.0 turbocharged powerplant and 5 speed LSD transmission. The exterior is finished in a respray of the OEM arctic white paint and has been styled in typical S13 fashion. The front bumper, side skirts, and rear bumper are all fiberglass vertex style aero, a perfect balance between clean and aggressive looks. Aggressive aftermarket front fenders widen the front of the vehicle just a tad and give this 180SX a menacing look while driving down the road. We spruced up this kit with some fresh paintwork and installed a set of LED front position lights to really tie together the clean aesthetic of this 180SX. The body is clean with no evidence of rust or corrosion on the panels, a refreshing sight to see compared to most US market S13’s, however there are minor spots of paint damage and small body dents that are typical for a 28 year old vehicle. The OEM wheels have been replaced with an extremely fitting set of Yokohama AVS VS-5 Wheels in a matching creamy white finish. All in all, the exterior has still held up incredibly well and is an excellent example of this iconic chassis. The interior is race-ready and has already been equipped with a few modifications to give the next owner a head start on outfitting the interior for performance driving. The driver’s seat has been replaced with an old school Bride bucket seat, which holds those with smaller waists in quite well. The passenger seat is still OEM, and the original upholstery has remained in good condition, with only minor signs of wear and discoloration on the passenger seat. You may notice the infamous S13 “dash crack”, which luckily isn’t too significant, especially on a modified car. The rear of the car has been fully stripped out and the rear seats and trunk carpet are not present. All other interior plastics are in great shape, and all buttons and switches on the dash work as expected, down to the automatic climate control. The bulky stock steering wheel has been replaced with an aftermarket anodized red unit and looks and feels great in the hands. You can’t miss that signature JDM bubble shift knob either! The OEM gauge cluster is intact, fully functional, and displays just 114,107 original km’s. Equating to approximately 71k verified miles, this S13 definitely has a ton of life left and is sure to be a great, long lasting platform for the next owner. A Blitz boost gauge is affixed atop the dash and is fully functional, and a water temp gauge occupies what was once the factory air vents. The climate control is still functional. Heat blows hot and A/C is cold. For a car that looks so great, it drives even better. The 2.0 turbocharged “SR20DET” engine is a hoot to drive at its limits, and this particular example is mostly stock and in great shape. A Blitz intake helps the engine breathe better, and a full Trust exhaust frees up the restrictive stock system and really makes this SR sing. Mechanically this is one of the healthiest 180’s we’ve come across, acceleration is smooth and rapid throughout the powerband. The 5 speed manual transmission shifts smooth as butter, with no grinds, pop outs, or other mechanical hiccups. The factory limited slip differential has since been welded, likely to aid with drifting and is still completely functional for around town driving. Handling has been improved with a cusco rear strut tower bar, aftermarket tie rods and a set of stiffer fixed struts. If you’re looking for a true RHD enthusiast car ready to modify and race to your heart’s desire. This 180SX Type X marks the spot.
