1992 Nissan 240sx HB

White
Automatic
155,000km
Sony CD Player
17" black and polished rims
4 stock rims also come with the car.

This car runs great just have no need for the car anymore and need it out of my grandparents driveway.

Things the car needs
-The car doesnt have aircare.
-Also it has passengerside rocker panel rust and the stock spoiler is taken off so the holes still need to be filled(see pictures).
-All these things are the reason I am asking so little. I drove the car like this for around a year and it didnt bother me but you might want to fix these things. Make an off and we will try and figure something out.

asking 1400obo


and no

You might as well get a new hatch trunk they're dirt cheap. The rocker panel might be hard to fix. Also check out the strut towers if they're rusted the hell out or no. They're common for s13's.

no because its automatic. automatic 240s are dumb unless you find one in mint condition and will do a 5 spd swap on it. But if you were gonna do a 5 spd swap might as well just get a manual.

Not worth the money. Unless the rust is limited to what we see (that I doubt) and your fine with an auto.
They rot on the frame rail below the master cylinder, the strut towers where they attach at the frame rails and the tops, the driver floor below the pedals and a few other places.

trying to get it to pass aircare may be both expensive and time consuming.

I wouldn't buy it. I paid $5000 for a flawless 91 automatic coupe as my platform to build off of. No rust, 100,000kms. You get what you pay for.

I'd never get a rusty daily driver. I'd only buy a rusty car if it was going to be stripped into a track car. But then, that'd be a completely different story.
