1993 Nissan Gloria Gran Turismo S
The Y32 could probably be one of Nissans best full size sedan, a truly timeless design. This particular Gloria Gran Turismo is a 1993 with only 30K miles on it! Finished in metallic grey. Overall this has been one well preserved example of why the luxury tourer became so popular in Japan. The body has been well maintained for it's age with minimal flaws. The front end is largely free of any notable stone chips, the only real cosmetic issue is a ding on the driver side door. Otherwise all of the body lines are straight. This was a grade 4 at Japan auction so there is no record of accident or repair history. The boxy design has made these particularly popular in the VIP scene.
The interiors are very simple and well laid out. All of the lesser used functions are neatly tucked away in the dash with pop outs for things like business cards. All of the accessories are powered for convenience like the windows, door locks, driver seat, parking brake, etc. Everything on this is function just as it should including the original tape player. Automatic climate control with cold A/C is easy to use despite being in Japanese. The seats and carpets are in excellent shape free of any notable rips or stains. Even the original floor mats have been well preserved.
Power comes compliments of the VG30DE 3.0 Liter V6. The V6 fires right up and runs well. The motor has ample torque and feels good at highway speeds. The suspension is well sorted and designed for gobbling up the miles in comfort. However, unlike your grandfather's Cadillac, if you take an exit a little too hot you're not going to feel like you're about to tip over. This Gloria is a great example of what an unmolested Y32 should be. The whole package wraps up into an excellent daily with a lot of untapped potential.
