This 2001 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R in white with 81,384 km was inspected at USS Tokyo auction in Japan on 22 February 2018.
Auction grade 4 C, aftermarket parts fitted including Rays TE37SL 18 inch alloy wheels, Blitz NUR muffler, Trust air cleaner, Trust radiator, V spec like diffuser.
Auction report noted “many other modification parts”, head lining might need cleaning, seat and steering wheel wear and tear, underneath rust has been painted, some scratches on alloy wheels.
Our inspection confirmed this was a smoker’s car, odour was not too strong but headlining would probably need
cleaning and deordorising of the interior.
A couple of minor paint issues as pictured on bumper and sideskirt.
Previously used in the Hokkaido region, underneath had been painted with what appeared to be a rust proof coating. this made it difficult to evaluate the condition of the body underneath that coating and whether it had been applied as a preventative measure or after rust had developed. There were signs of rust in the underbody in the sill area but nothing looked serious. Also the rest of the vehicle including the engine bay and strut towers was quite clean and rust free.
A note on the steering wheel in Japanese mentioned it had a security system which needed turning off before starting the engine.
Other than the issues noted, the overall condition was quite good for its age.
It sold for about 5.43 million Yen FOB, which at the time would have been approx. $78,000 complied in Australia (calculated at 83.5 Yen to the dollar and allowing for Luxury Car Tax).

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.
