The first car we went to look at we bought. 1990 240sx single cam, new motor with less than 10k miles , 230k miles on body. 5 speed with kmh cluster, even in the US. XXR 527s 16 up front and 17 in the rear. full coilover setup that's auto cross ready. Which will be changed into a daily driver setup. Headlights don't go down, doesn't have rear wiper or rear window defrost. Power windows, mirrors, locks, but no sunroof. No A/C but a heater. It's a couple different colors but will change. But I can't complain considering it was $2300. Will add some pictures tomorrow.

Well I have a picture of it in the garage.


Added 13 hours later:


The engine bay is the cleanest thing of the car.

Needs a seat or have it fixed

Hatch needs to be painted. Also going to paint the roof because it's green. The exhaust is also held up with some wire.

Took the terrible vinyl wrap job off the headlights to show one's white and one's black. The lights also don't go down, but the motors (at least one of them) work.

No stereo (what a surprise)


Busted driver door handle

Some trash and he gave us some rear struts and a hood riser to raise the hood where the hinges are.

And last but certainly not least the kmh cluster with a tachometer that doesn't work half the time.


Added 3 minutes later:

The E-brake also doesn't work either.

Does it at least have a clean title? I'm guessing with that cluster it doesn't. Did you check for frame damage? If it's been drifted it could have been crashed.

Has a clean title, frames clean. The floor boards are a bit caved in. And he said it's never crashed and never been drifted. It was used for an auto cross car.

Yup, now I just need to get it over to the nissan dealership because they need to fix my seatbelt motor because it's stuck forward.

Well I got a lot of luck because I have a friend that just came over to look at the car and he can hook me up with all that parts I need and he'll give me a bucket seat.

It also has an open diff, I know you can drift with an open diff but if someone really wanted to drift they would be smart and weld the diff.

Nice find, no SR20 is no problem, you can swap when the wallet gets fat. (did the US S13 get a SR20 at all though ?)

No,they would be smart if they bought welded stronger diff. Then, they would be smarter.

@Turbojc one does not simply buy a welded diff ;)
if you have to spend money you usually go for an LSD
