I'm posting this up for sale here before I put it on "bring a trailer"! I've lowered my price a lot in hopes to move it.
I'm selling my 1987 Nissan Van! #DRIFTVAN
This is an extremely rare vehicle. When Nissan brought this van to America (mainly California), they put a much larger motor (2.4l) in it along with AC, fuel injection, etc. This caused them to catch fire. After four recalls, Nissan offered to buy them back for full NADA value and a $500 new car credit. Almost everyone sent them back. They only brought around 35k to the US. As a result, you probably have never seen one of these and most people never will... So, how has this vehicle not caught fire? It gets rarer still.
The motor has been swapped with a Blacktop SR20det w/ S15 turbo! Mix that with a 5 speed tranny, rwd, and a welded diff and you have yourself a true sleeper, a van that can burnout, drift, etc.
This Van only has ~100k miles on the body and all original paint. Paint could have the clearcoat touched up on top. For a majority of its life, it was garage kept, collector kept. The interior/exterior is in better condition than most 10 year old cars on the road today. It has working AC, working heat, and a cooler/warmer compartment with Ice Maker! I installed a Pioneer Headunit with bluetooth, aux, usb and 100k display colors. I kept the original radio if someone wants to have it go back to original. Its got a set of real Enkei 92s with newish tires. Clean Title. I'm sure I'm forgetting something..
The radiator needs to be flushed inside and out. Running the AC on HOT days in the summer can cause the engine to get hot.
The intercooler can scrape on big bumps. If you start to get a boost leak, a replacement intercooler (OEM Audi) can be purchased on ebay for less than $40. Its easy enough to swap that I haven't gone water-to-air yet (Though I am collecting parts for the setup).
The PCV valve needs to be replaced. I have the valve but haven't gotten around to replacing it.
ASKING: $8,000 OBO. Best way to contact me is via Call/Text. 423-503-8753
Vehicle is located in Chattanooga Tennessee.
TRADES, I really just need cash but could trade for something thats driftable plus cash.
THANKS FOR LOOKING!
