Pictures truly do not do justice to this Silvia. The color on the car will change with the sunlight and angle that it’s viewed in so it’s hard to really showcase it. The 1K4 (Purpleish Silver Two Tone) paint code is one of the most rare factory colors offered for the Silvia and it certainly is a sight to behold. This ’93 comes to us with 81K miles and it appears to have been exceptionally well maintained in that time. The paint itself is fantastic with no notable blemishes and the body has been kept up just as well. All around this Q’s has been kept factory stock including the spoiler and 15″ wheels.
The interior looks just as great as the exterior does. The factory buckets have held up very well with only slight bolster wear to the driver seat. The rear seats appear to have hardly had any use. All around the interior has been kept free of any notable stains. Both the seats and carpets are free of any rips or tears. Even more surprising is the fact the dash is crack free, which if you’re familiar with the S chassis can be hard to find. The Q’s came with full automatic climate control and the air is currently blowing nice and cold. It appears that an aftermarket radio used to be in place of the original but was removed before making it way to the US. This particular model also has full power accessories; the windows, mirrors, and locks. The optional sunroof does operate and retracts quickly.
Popping the hood reveals a very clean SR20DE mated to the 5 speed manual. The two liter fires right up and quietly idles. Power delivery is smooth across the rev range since there’s no sudden spike from boost coming on. The 5 speeds shifts easily and without any grinding or fuss. With such little weight the suspension feels very well balanced and would be fantastic on the daily commute. All this turn key gem is missing is a new driveway to call home.
