Chassis no. BCNR33004467. Deep Marine Blue over gray cloth. RHD, 2568/276hp six, 5-speed, HKS exhaust, Enkei Racing two-piece wheels, Brembo brakes, Potenza tires, Momo steering wheel.

Evaluation: Represented with all import documents. Also represented with recent belt, water pump, plugs, coil packs, thermostat, and full fluid service. Tidy engine bay. Good original paint aside from some light cracking around the left taillights. The interior is mostly very good aside from some light scratches on the dash, but there is a faint smell of flavored vape pen in there. A mostly solid Series 1 R33, and aside from the wheels and an exhaust the size of a grapefruit, it is seemingly all stock.

Bottom Line: The R33 generation GT-R became eligible for import in January of last year. It is something of a middle child between the groundbreaking original Godzilla R32s and the more attractive and sophisticated R34, but it’s roomier than its predecessor and despite carrying some extra weight, quicker as well. The market for JDM greats, even the middle children, is very hot right now and clean GT-Rs don’t stay on the market for long. This one looks used but cleaner than most, and the high price was no big surprise.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
