1988 Nissan Skyline R31 Silhouette GTS1 (SVD)

This car was found for sale online in 2006, asking $4,600 (AUD), being build number 139 of 200 GTS1 cars produced by Nissan's Special Vehicles Division. These cars are hard to come by, but have generally held out fairly well over the years, as we have been able to add quite a number of them to the register relatively easily over time - and lots are still out there on the road which is great to see.

At the time of sale, the seller noted the car had new tyres and clutch, and the steering rack was replaced. Bilsteins were re-built in around 2003. Rear spoiler is included, but bolts have pulled out. The right hand side bolster on the drivers seat has worn through and the steering wheel is a bit worn. Interior is otherwise quite good. Engine has always used synthetic oils only. Rim centre caps are missing. (some rsole stole them !) Still has original stereo and owners manuals/supplements.

If anyone knows where number 139 now resides, or has any additional information about this particular car, please get in contact with us so we can update the vehicle's history and profile.

For those that don't know these cars, this is an Australian special edition Nissan Skyline R31, known as the GTS1 Silhouette. All the GTS1 cars were painted white. Some of the visually distinguishing features of the car included 16" white powder coated 11 spoke wheels, rear spoiler, unique SVD / Silhouette decals and sports cloth interior - along with the unique badging. The cars were fitted with a turbocharged RB30 engine and stage 1 camshaft, producing 130kw, and were only available in manual transmission. Extractors, and 2.25" exhaust and an LSD were also fitted standard.

If you own one, please add yours to Classic Register so we can keep records on the remaining cars. If you are now the owner of this car or know where it ended up, please get in contact with us and we can update the cars profile.
