1989 Nissan 180SX



We are handling the sale of a mate’s personal project, this gorgeously assembled Type 2 Series 1 Nissan 180SX. The base car was a barn find 1989 model, with a legitimate 120,000kms and a perfectly working factory digital dash. Since purchased, it’s been converted to a manual with a forged SR20DET and a S13 front end. All receipts for work done available as it was completed during lockdown.
