Meet Our 240SX

GRM world, meet our Nissan 240SX.
Under the hood, it's all stock.
The interior is totally original, too. So, do we retain the original wheel or spring for an aftermarket piece?
The one big issue: The original foam rear spoiler has come apart, allowing the mounts to rust. Hopefully the damage is limited.

It even still has the original tape deck. And wheels. And airbox. And muffler. And you get the idea.

No, this isn’t an old file photo. We didn’t use Photoshop, either.

You are looking at what might be the last bone-stock S13-chassis Nissan 240SX in existence. Okay, there are probably others, but odds are strong that they’re kind of groddy.

This example has actually been part of the extended GRM family for quite some time—decades, in fact. Late in 1991, our editor’s dad purchased it from the local dealer. Since then, it’s gone from daily driver to the family’s third vehicle. Recently, the time came to pass it along to the next generation.

So, what did we get? A nearly bone-stock car. What’s not stock? Just the Hella H4 headlights. It even still has the original tape deck. And wheels. And airbox. And muffler. And you get the idea.

We find lots of stock 240's here in Clarksville.

There is a little old lady that has a beautiful 91 that is about as stock as that one. I ask her about it every time she comes in for an oil change

I think the stock wheels are the most impressive thing. Very clean car in a great color.

Edit: just realized this was brought back from the dead....damn me for helping bump a necro post.
