This 1992 Nissan Skyline R32 GTR was inspected for a client at USS Tokyo auction on 16 June 2016 and sold for 1.345 million yen FOB, which at the time would have been approx. $24,800 complied in Australia, plus tyres and on road costs (at 78.5 Yen to the dollar).
June 1992 built (fine for import under SEVS) with 163,000 kms.
Auction sheet noted that the transmission had been upgraded with a quickshifter. The engine and gearbox were good on inspection so underneath the obvious cosmetic condition issues it appeared to be a decent and solid car mechanically. Clean underneath, no rust issues or damage.
Front bumper, left door and both side mirrors had scratches. The car had been painted at some time in the past, and not to the highest standard so a repaint would be required in time. Boot had rust under the spare tyre where water had got in and sat unnoticed, this is a common fault with R32 and R33 Skylines and requires simple work to seal the boot, rust removal, rust proofing and paint.
Seats were quite dirty and interior was worn and needed tidying up in a number of areas. Dash itself was OK, but obvious wear to handbrake and shift knob surrounds.
Aftermarket parts included DEFI water pressure and boost gauges, exhaust, airpods, wheels and audio system.
Basically this car needed some cleaning up and TLC.
Whether you’re looking to import a 1992 Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R like this, or another year, make or model, we can find it for you in nice condition.
The pictures are typical of the information we provide prior to auction for each vehicle of interest, with any faults shown so you can clearly see the condition before we discuss whether to bid, and your budget.
It is vital when sourcing your vehicle to use an agent that takes the time to physically check each vehicle and looks beyond the auction pictures and report to confirm condition. Some vehicles may have an unpleasant smoke or other odour, rust underneath, or other faults which are impossible to know without inspection.
