We just got in this fantastically clean 1990 Skyline GTS-4. Finished in one of Nissan’s best colors for the Skyline; Diamond Black Metallic (732). The paint has been maintained particularly well over the years and only shows minor blemishes. The body has been kept up to the same level with only minor spots that could easily be PDR’ed. Then again, what would you expect with only 24K miles. The factory good looks have been left untouched making it a great example of what made these cars so iconic to begin with. With the GTS-4 you’re not only bringing four door practicality to the table but also the year round benefit of AWD. These make fantastic dailies for those looking for something out of the box.
The interior on this Skyline tells much of the same story that the body does. The interior shows little signs of use over it’s 28 years, for instance the seats are in excellent condition. No traditional bolster wear on the driver side, rips, stains, etc. The back seats appear to have hardly ever been used. Even the dash is free of the ever common bubble. The shift knob has been replaced with a Nismo piece, otherwise all of the factory pieces are present. The automatic climate control operates as it should and the A/C blows cold. The original radio still functions as it should however is limited due to the frequency difference between Japan and the US. The only issue we’ve noticed are two of the window switches have a broken tab on them. Otherwise all of the power accessories are working just as they should. Power folding mirrors, door locks, even the gauge housing radio controls.
The GTS-4 makes the most of the R32 platform by combining the easier to work with RB20DET to the GTR drivetrain. The two liter fires right up and quietly idles along. The power deliver is smooth and full boost comes on early in the rev range. Under the hood has been kept all stock and incredibly clean, and the same can be said when you climb underneath. The 5 speed shifts effortlessly and feels great rowing through the gears. The AWD setup is designed to put most of the power out back until the front wheels begin to slip, so these are a bit less prone to the typical AWD understeer. The factory suspension is very forgiving but stays very well planted when the road gets twisty. Finding such a clean example of what Nissan intended when they designed the R32 has become increasingly hard. This one would make a fantastic daily for someone looking to enjoy everything that made the Skyline such a legend.
