This 1996 Nissan 180SX in purple with 99,042 km was inspected for a client in October 2019. Auction grade 3.5 C.
A previous auction record was located through Japan Car History Check dating from March 2013 when the vehicle had 86,535 km. Since then a number of modifications had been fitted including the red seats and steering wheel from a later model Nissan, the red stripe, and the exhaust.
The condition overall was quite clean and nice for age, with some quality aftermarket parts fitted. Although the body and trims were all quite affected by the sun so a full repaint would be required.
Engine was running well, clutch felt fine.
Price withheld at client request. Typically at the time of this auction – and without the faded paint work – a similar vehicle would have been expected to sell for between 1.1 and 1.3 million Yen.
Note that these are considered collector cars and prices are rising quickly as demand increases around the world – particularly the USA market.
We only source the best vehicles with clean and tidy interiors, and only vehicles we would be pleased to own ourselves. This is why we are constantly told by clients that the vehicles we source are well above the condition of most others on the local market.
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.
Whether you’re looking for a 1996 Nissan 180SX Type X in purple like this, or another year, make or model, we can find it for you in nice condition and at the best possible price.
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.
