Some details of the 32 bought (Our description after inspection & photography).

1994 (March) Skyline R32 GT-R. 81,475km. First time this car has ever been offered for sale from original owner.

Performance upgrades: @ 62,504km the engine was replaced with a 2.6L Tomei Advance full engine (Built unit - Without ancillaries, but ancillaries were also renewed at the time) & at the same mileage a set of Nismo R1 turbos were fitted (steel impellors / ball bearing type) complete with a set of Trust hard pipes (set of 4). SARD uprated injectors, HPI adaptor harness with high response R35 GT-R air flow meters, HKS EVC 6 boost controller, Fujitsubo stainless front pipe, HKS high-flow catalyst, Reimax stainless steel exhaust system & re-mapped ROM ECU. HKS Oil cooler kit with thermostatic-bypass remote oil filter mount, Koyo alloy radiator, Billion high pressure radiator cap. Uprated rear LSD, Nismo clutch kit, Ohlins PCV coil overs (C-spanner missing), Cusco adjustable pillow type rear arms, C-ring alloy bush kit for rear sub frame. Brembo brakes (front & rear) with Blue Force caliper carriers and 355mm / 350mm discs (F/R), Cusco brake master stopper, braided brake hoses & high boiling point racing brake fluid.

Cosmetic exterior upgrades: RAYS TE37 alloy wheels of 18 x 9.5 + 22, with rare VR centre cap set. Bridgestone RE-11 255/35R18 size tyres (near new at each corner), uprated wheel nuts. Bee-R front splitter, original Nismo intercooler vents & bonnet lip. There's a rare original option intercooler grille fitted also. Note the headlights are original - but still look like new. Arch guards are fitted at each corner but are generic self-adhesive items only. Easily removed later if desired (just time consuming to remove glue) and should leave no marks.
An RH9 decal is fitted to the rear. Note the "Nissan" chrome badge is deleted. Note there is no tint film on the rear windows.

Interior: Japanese spec. DVD navigation system (useless outside of Japan and best removed to avoid theft in transit), Discontinued Trust (Grex) alloy shift knob. 3 x centre gauge set has been removed. It may arrive with the car's paperwork, expected from the end of this week, but would recommend fitting a Nismo combination set. There's a PLX Wideband O2 sensor for monitoring A/F ratios.

Notes on lack of ageing: A lack of bubbling on the dash & cloth in un-faded condition, original floor mats unworn, light switch not faded away (tallies with genuine mileage), instrument needles still as red as when the car left the factory in 1994, excellent original bodywork (no panels changed since new), no shrinkage to weather strips & seals & no rust tells us this car***8217;s been mostly garaged and not usually left out in the elements or exposed to a lot of UV during its life. Inside the boot there's no indication of any water leakage. Spare wheel cover is like new as is the carpet. Tools & spare are unused since new. Condition of the interior is so good, it would cost in the region of 700,000-1,000,000 if bought as used parts now. It's been around 2 years since we saw an interior this well preserved in a 32 GT-R.

Engine & mechanicals. Note how tidy the engine bay is ***8211; and the lack of corrosion in general under the bonnet. Engine feels & looks like new. No oil leaks at all under the car. Oil is clean & recently changed, as is coolant.
R35 AFM's and other spec. tells us this car***8217;s work was completed in recent years, and the engine***8217;s only done around 20,000km since being replaced. We confirmed from inspection that ancillaries were also replaced at same time as the engine. No expense has been spared on this car. Oil pressure when cold (winter) 6kg/cm2 & 2.5 when cold. Clutch is still near new & differential still feels like it's been recently fitted. Car drives tight with no faults - not registered so unable to test at speed on open road, but the little we tested it, it drives fine. Clearly a car set up for fast road performance. Suspension was set hard (damping) so we reduced it to sensible road settings & will raise the front for shipping too...

The following are faults we noted whilst carefully inspecting the car during preparation for photography.

INTERIOR:
There is minor wear to the driver's seat bolsters, a small dimple on the door panel & on the other side a very small mark on the passenger door panel. Note there is a crack on the light switch (Someone tried to remove it - it's not meant to come off - glued in place from factory). These are small faults only.
(1). The original LCD clock isn't working. These commonly burn out. We would recommend replacement.
(2). Both rear quarter Trims are coming apart. Again, very common on 32's. We have new ones in stock.
(3). The Turbo timer is missing it's facia. We can either remove it entirely, or replace with a good used unit if preferred.
(4). Interior door release handles are slightly faded and best replaced whilst still available. We carry stock.
(5). Door shut plastic insulators are worn and broken (normal). Would recommend replacing with new.
(6). Centre gauges are missing and should be fitted, with A/C controls returned to original position with a 1 DIN head unit. We***8217;d recommend fitment of a new Nismo black -face 3 gauge set.
(7). Original floor mats are very rarely found in this condition. We'd recommend fitment of some Nismo floor mats and saving these somewhere dry & safe.

EXTERIOR:
All factory original panel fitment show this car's never been involved in a collision. The original side steps are still on the car with original clips & double-sided adhesive since new. the jacking points to have no damage from being lifted with the standard jack - also undamaged since new.
The passenger-side rear quarter shows signs of a small cosmetic repair, where there was a dent on the corner. This has been completed to a good standard. There's a small chip on the rear spoiler (see picture) and some small stone chips on the bonnet, front splitter and bumper. Also some on the lower sections of rear quarter (passenger side). Some also noted around the door handles. These are very small, but noted to give a complete description.
We recommend repair before we ship - small pin dents on: Driver's side quarter (1), driver's door (6 - light), driver's front fender (1), bonnet (2), passenger door (4 - light). These can be repaired before shipment
