looking at buying an r32

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

Im currently looking for a r32 gtst. this is the one i am looking at as it is fairly close to me, it wouldnt need to be driven straight away, so i could fix it up. i feel that $5000 is to much and wondering what you guys would pay for it. i havent been able to look at it in person yet as ive been working, but the rust is a bit of a worry, especially after reading threads about other peoples rust problems

these are the pictures he sent me of the rust. would you buy it if you could get it for the right price or avoid it like the plague

thanks

Mat

"EVERYTHING IS ORIGINAL INSIDE AND OUT."

Proceeds to show a big list of mods as well as a set of photos with an anything but standard R32 GTS-T

Lol..  honestly with a JSAI GTR front bar and some time cleaning up the car it wouldn't be too bad a buy but it's hard to tell without actually seeing it, the rails, the bushings, engine/box etc

Depends on your ability to fix these things, if you're never planning to take it to a mechanic it could be a cheap skyline to thrash about but if you're going to be paying a mechanic to fix things then I'd personally steer clear as from what I can see it'll need a few trips to the wreckers and weekends worth of work to get it up to a somewhat normal standard.

IT HAD MOLD AND RATS ALL THROUGH IT.

I wouldn't even pay $2k for it knowing this.

Keep looking. Always check the underside and boot of a car.

  • thanks guys for the replies

    yes i would be doing most of the mechanical work, i had a 1993 lancer gsr awd turbo and just sold it recently, so i have a bit of experience with working on cars. my plan was to take my time and clean it up and then put it on historic rego scheme or the modified scheme if it still exists when its old enough. if i was to make an offer, it probably would be no more than $4000 as i know rust can be expensive to fix, and i dont have any skills in rust repair. i just need to find time to actually look at it, as its the only way ill know if its too far gone, or whether the cost of repairs would outway the cost of just getting one in better condition

     

    thanks again
