The Silvia has built a reputation on being a phenomenal driver’s car and we just got a great example of why. This 1991 comes to us with 76K miles and a few key upgrades over the factory equipment. Finished in one of the best Silvia colors, Super Black (KH3), it looks awesome. The paint has been kept in great overall condition with minimal blemishes. The body has been kept in pretty good shape as well however it’s not perfect. There are some door dings along both the driver and passenger side, however not deep enough to chip the paint so they should be able to be removed with some PDR. To step things up this Silvia has full upgraded aero. The Monkey Magic half bumper gives a very unique look to the factory bumper. The GTR style grill really matches the aggressive tone set by the bumper. Matching side skirts and rear spats complete the look. A set of period correct 15″ Reverse Mesh wheels look right at home with the lowered ride height.
The interior has been kept mostly all stock and in good condition. Like all S Chassis this one too has fallen victim to the dash crack, otherwise the interior has been well maintained. Both the driver and passenger seats are in great shape with only a little bit of puckering along the bolsters from getting in and out. Both are free of any notable stains or any rips/tears. The back seat does have some blemishes but considering how cramped the back seats are I can’t imagine they would be getting too much use. The steering wheel has been replaced in favor of a classic Nardi 3 spoke. Otherwise the only other change up to the interior is a carbon overlay on the gauge cluster. The power mirrors and windows are both operating as they should. This particular S13 is fitted with the more standard climate control and functioning like normal. Overall the interior has been very well preserved!
Under the hood there are a few minor tweaks to the factory setup. The SR20DET fires right up and sounds good through the Fujitsubo exhaust. The SR idles nicely and is drama free. Power comes on smooth and evenly across the rev range, as to be expected with the free revving two liter. It does sound and perform a little better than Nissan originally intended thanks to the HKS intake and Blitz blow off valve. To help with handling a strut tower braces was added. And to cut down on wheel gap and body roll a full set of Cusco coilovers have been fitted. With the combination of tasteful upgrades and an already rock solid platform this S13 makes for an excellent driver’s car. As it sits it’s ready to take over daily driving and spirited cruises or would make for an excellent platform to build from!
