1988 A31 Nissan Cefiro

Please read carefully as there is a lot of detail in this thread and if you have a question I most likely will answer it. The car will be available as a ROLLING CHASSIS- THIS MEANS NO ENGINE AND NO TRANSMISSION
I am still getting the chassis package together and removing parts etc… but I am posting this because everyone has been asking for a run-down on how the car will be sold. I will offer a delivery service. 50% deposit must be left before this service is agreed upon.

Price: $7800

If you are not familiar with this car it shares all suspension components with S13 240SX. It is essentially a 4 door S13.
You can also swap in any front crossmember and drop in just about any Nissan engine you choose or non Nissan engines with S13 adapter mounts, this goes with JZ swaps also. The Cefiro has a very long engine bay suited for 6 cylinder engines which makes any swap much easier than a comparable swap into an S13.
Getting insurance is very easy because it falls under the same category of a Nissan Maxima. My insurance company simply input it as a 1988 Nissan Maxima and insurance was insanely cheap. (if you get technical A32 Cefiro’s, although have nothing mechanically to do with A31 Cefiros are called Maximas in North America). Also due to the age of this car and the fact it is not called a skyline you are able to register it under classic car insurance for incredibly reduced rates.

I am finally posting my Nissan Cefiro for sale.
I have put all of my effort into this car for the past four years.
While it was being built it was featured on many blogs and websites.
Here is the build thread that I stopped adding to early in its life.
The car was featured in modified magazine in 2013.
Competed in Final Bout 2014.

I have a few JZ/R-154 custom parts I am willing to include for extra. (see photos at very bottom)
-3" piping 4" core custom mid mount intercooler setup w/ AEM IAT sensor bung. $460
-R-154 1JZ/2JZ swap drive shaft. Brand new summer 2014. $360
