Video of the Skyline – https://youtu.be/JkR49W6Rhas

1967 Nissan Prince Skyline 1500 Deluxe – dating from Nissan’s take-over of Prince Motor Company – both Nissan and Prince badging. Engine S50DS-46684 / chassis no. 50-200866.

Interior is in very good condition – nice dash, seats and door panels and functional rubber flooring. Engine starts right up and runs and drives well.

Neat car that gets lots of positive comments from both car-people and passers-by and great for the vintage Datsun / 510 enthusiast.

1991 Honda Acty 4WD kei-truck with 660cc motor in the back and 5-speed manual transmission.

Shows very low miles and bed and cabin are in great shape. But a few bumps and bruised on the body  so overall average condition – an inexpensive 4WD utility truck we will have in-stock December, 2018.

Subaru 2WD kei-truck with the 660cc clover 4-cylinder motor and 5-speed manual transmission. Fairly zippy and able to go 60+ MPH – however like most Kei trucks, more comfortable around town where you can expect mileage of approx. 45mpg.

Looks pretty good however seats need to be recovered and the bed could use a little clean-up.

 

1990 Nissan S-Cargo. One of the wonderfully crazy designs that came out of Nissan’s Pike Factory group in the late 1980’s. The S-Cargo has a charming retro style evoking the image o the Citroen 2CV and small delivery vans popular in Europe in the 1950-70’s. The S-Cargo name is a play on the french word for snail – Escargot. This car will bring a smile to your face. Could be useful for business-pormotion or use it like intended – as a small business delivery van.

Showing 97,282 kilometers (~60k miles) and looks good. Some wear rust underneath in common areas. But good value for the money. Will share more info once we have it in-stock December, 2018.

Neat vintage Honda Acty SDX 4WD kei-truck. Powered by a 550cc motor in the back mated to a 5-speed manual transmission with a simple 4WD system similar to the VW Vanagon Syncro. Showing just 32,500 miles (52,311 kilometers) reported to be original.

Kei trucks offer great utility – 350kg load capacity and the ability to get up to 55+ MPH. Inexpensive and easy to appreciate – we will have this neat truck in-stock December, 2018.

1993 Suzuki Cappuccino. Clean car from Nagoya with the neat dark green metallic paint called Vert Foncée. Black interior is very clean. Seats are perfect and dash is good however some pats on upper binnacle where GPS or gauges were mounted. Only 58k miles (94,100 kilometers) and in overall great shape however does have a couple rust bubbles on lower left-rear fender. Serviced with fresh oil change / transmission fluid – ready to enjoy.

The Cappuccino is a very fun car – with its 660cc twincam turbo; light weight; and 50/50 weight distribution, it’s a great little sports car. Very neat 4-way top – car converts from a closed coupe to a T-top or Targa top or you can fold back glass rear window assembly for a full convertible.

Nice original condition and runs and drives very well. Fun and efficient car you can use year-round for not a lot of money.
